2013 Nissan 370Z vs. Its Competition

2013 Nissan 370Z
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

Though the segment-straddling nature of the 370Z doesn't admit much direct competition, the 2012 Ford Mustang offers a similar performance/value mix--though with a very different character, both behind the wheel and at the curb.

A more refined, practical, and luxurious version of the 370Z can be found in the Infiniti G37 Coupe, or, if you're looking at the 370Z Roadster, the G37 Convertible.

Hyundai's Genesis Coupe is less expensive, but also less impressive in performance terms, but still a fun, value-packed sports car.
