If you order the Sport package, the manual trans is fitted with the aforementioned SynchroRev Match, which blips the throttle during downshifts.
Car and Driver
One feature that really helps this cockpit fit you like custom-tailored gloves is a gauge cluster that adjusts vertically with the steering column for optimum visibility, a feature Ferrari neglected to install in its new $200,000+ GT.
Add-ons such as the Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System with touch-screen convenience, XM NavTraffic, and XM NavWeather add tech points to the 370Z control panel.
Optional on the Touring is a Navigation package that includes a hard-drive-based touchscreen navigation system with real-time traffic and weather updates, voice recognition, digital music storage, Bluetooth audio streaming, an iPod interface and a rearview camera.
The Z roadster comes in only two trims, keeping options relatively simple.
Both the coupe and Roadster are available in base or Touring trim, with an optional Sport package, available on either base or Touring coupes and the Touring Roadster, that adds larger 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, a viscous limited-slip differential, and front and rear aerodynamic/appearance elements.
Standard equipment on all models includes cruise control, power windows, and Nissan's Intelligent Key keyless entry/start system. An optional navigation package adds a 9.3-GB Music Box Hard Drive and iPod interface. TheCarConnection.com finds the navigation systems in the 370Z to be easy-to-use, and we especially like the dynamic audio and climate controls that adapt to top-down driving.
Roadsters feature a power-folding soft top that opens or closes in about 20 seconds, controlled by a button in the console or on the doors. The Roadster's standard specification includes Bluetooth, XM Satellite Radio with real-time traffic, power leather seats with ventilation, and HID headlights.
The 2011 Nissan 370Z is a true bang-for-the-buck sports car, especially in its base coupe trim. Prices on the roadster rise into the low-$40,000 range, but even then it's very competitive against the likes of the Porsche Boxster.
The base 2011 Nissan 370Z coupe starts just under $30,000, placing it among the most capable sports cars in its price range. For $30,000 you won't get much in the way of high-end features.
Options aren't exactly the Nissan 370Z's forte; there's a dearth of available extras. However, the 2011 Nissan 370Z is relatively well-equipped anyway, so most consumers won't miss sifting through an endless options list.
The 2011 Nissan 370Z's one-touch convertible top is attractive and functional, and audio features are high points.
