2019 Nissan 370Z Overview

The current Nissan 370Z arrived a full 10 model years ago, for 2009. The two-seat sports car received some significant enhancements for 2018, so for 2019, changes are mostly limited to reconfiguration and color changes.

Nissan continues to offer the 370Z in two body styles: a fastback coupe and a soft-top roadster. What was an aggressive shape in the model’s early years is now fairly understated and elegant. The same is true of the ergonomic and functional interior, slightly dated by older interfaces. Healthy doses of satin silver and—in some trims—contrasting color accents brighten the cabin.

The 370Z coupe comes in Base, Sport, Sport Touring, and NISMO grades. Sport Touring consolidates the previous Touring and Sport Tech trims. The roadster is available in Base, Touring, and Sport Touring grades. The Base trim for both body styles includes HID headlights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless access and start, automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, an 8-way manual driver’s seat, and a 4-way manual passenger’s seat. For 2019, an auto-dimming rearview mirror is standard. From there, features like navigation, leather upholstery, and Bluetooth streaming are available as buyers scale the trim ladder.

In keeping up with naming traditions for the Z series, the 370Z employs a 3.7-liter 6-cylinder with 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. Coupe buyers get a 6-speed manual transmission standard, with an optional 7-speed automatic across the range. The roadster offers an automatic transmission only. Sport and Sport Touring grades get standard paddle shifters when equipped with the automatic. Meanwhile, NISMO throws in an additional 18 hp, bumping the figure up to 350. Fuel economy is estimated at 19 mpg city, 26 highway, and 22 combined for the 7-speed automatic and 17, 26 , and 20 for the 6-speed manual transmission.

Coupe buyers looking to make more of a statement can opt to add the Heritage Edition package on Base, which offers unique exterior themes and a special yellow-trimmed interior. Magnetic Black, Deep Blue Pearl, and Pearl White all return, but Chicane Yellow has been discontinued. The NISMO, as always, is instantly noticeable because of its extra-aggressive front bumpers, rear bumpers, and sideskirts with red accents, a large spoiler, a unique suspension, and distinctive wheels.

Being an older vehicle, the 370Z lacks advanced safety features. There is a full set of airbags and a reversing camera as standard. Neither the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) nor any other major agency has crash-tested the 370Z.

Despite its age, the 370Z continues to offer a charm all its own, with classic proportions, reasonable comfort, and a focus toward motorsports.
