The 2008 Nissan 350Z earns good crash test scores and has a fairly solid array of standard safety equipment.

Crash ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) are mostly four stars for front and side impacts in the 350Z; Nissan does get a five-star rating for passenger side impact.

The 2008 Nissan 350Z gets good crash test ratings, but stability control is an option.

Anti-lock brakes and tire pressure monitors are standard across the 2008 Nissan 350Z lineup, with front-side and side-curtain airbags also standard on the coupe. Side airbags are standard on the roadster.

Stability control is available on the 350Z; Nissan only makes it standard on the Grand Touring model with a standard transmission, Cars.com reports.

The 2008 Nissan 350Z’s shape does cause some problems with visibility. “Around town, rearward visibility is poor,” according to Edmunds.
