Expert Quotes:

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.
Cars.com

Two base trim lines and an optional sport package are available on both the 2012 370Z Coupe and Roadster. An upgraded NISMO model caps the Z range.

Base models include cruise control, power windows, and keyless entry/start as standard equipment. An optional navigation upgrade includes a 9.3-GB hard-drive-based music storage system and iPod interface. Dynamic audio and climate controls help keep things comfortable during top-down driving with the Roadster. The Roadster also comes standard with a power-folding soft top that opens and closes in about 20 seconds.

The Touring models add a Bose audio system, plus Bluetooth, satellite radio, ventilated power leather seats, lumbar support, and HID headlights. Adding the sport package to any trim brings a viscous limited-slip rear differential, 19-inch RAYS forged aluminum alloy wheels, upgraded high-performance tires, a body-color rear spoiler and a front chin spoiler.

Considering the 370Z's price range from the just-under-$30,000 mark for the base coupe and the low-$40,000 range for a well-equipped Roadster, it's a very competitive package of performance and features, even against the likes of more expensive vehicles like the Porsche Boxster. If you're a fan of really loading a car up with extras, however, you may be a bit disappointed by the 370Z's short list of available add-ons.

Conclusion

The 2012 Nissan 370Z's power-folding soft top is quick and effortless, and its audio system is a high point of the features list.

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.
