For safe driving, the 2010 Nissan 370Z includes every dynamic and static safety feature you'd expect, including anti-lock brakes, as well as traction and stability control. Side airbags are standard, and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags are standard on Coupes. Neither NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) nor the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) has crash-tested it yet, but the prior versions of the Z coupe and roadster earned mostly four-star ratings.

Comparing it to the old Nissan 350Z, Car and Driver reports that "engineers had to add nearly 200 pounds of safety and regulatory bric-a-brac," giving the Nissan 370Z a very sound structure. The convertible is heavier still, and Motor Trend states that additional safety features for that model include "two roll-hoops just aft of the seats." Cars.com adds that the standard safety features include "dual front-, side-impact and side curtain airbags," along with ABS and active head restraints. Autoblog also notes that "the variable ratio brake pedal, Electronic Brake-force Distribution and Brake Assist all work together with the ABS and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) to provide a suitable safety net for ham-fisted frat-boys."

With its low window sills and relatively high seating position, the 2010 Nissan 370Z offers impressive driver sightlines. Automobile reviewers observe that the roadster gets "a decent-sized rear window and reasonable blind spots," and even when the top is up "the view out isn't too bad." As you might expect, the view with the top down is spectacular. On the coupe, ConsumerGuide says "thick rear roof pillars hurt the view" to the corners, "but large outside mirrors help compensate."

Conclusion

Crash tests are pending, but the 2010 Nissan 370Z offers the latest safety features and boasts good visibility on both the coupe and roadster.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
