Expert Quotes:

Few photos do the new Z justice. But, from a standing perspective, the roof seems thinner, the upper sculpted contours more evident and interesting. Viewed in the metal, the new shorter, lower, wider proportions look just right.
Automobile Magazine

With a cantilevered roof, "barbed" head- and taillamps, and a 240Z-like upswept beltline, the 370Z wears a tighter, more retro shape than the 350Z.
Motor Trend

Every body panel is fresh, and the styling, penned in San Diego, is largely successful, although it ignited some vivid office discussions.
Car and Driver

Draw up the criteria for an ideal sports car and you'll find that the 2011 Nissan 370Z covers nearly all the bases: two seats, lightweight coupe body, more than 300 horsepower, rear-wheel drive, big wheels and tires, and curves for days.

The snarling front end is easy to point to as the reason the car looks "cool," but the bulging fenders give the 370Z a sexy curve that's relatively absent on most modern cars, even ones designed to look sporty.

The Nissan 370Z enters its fifth year on the market as a familiar but unique offering in the sports car market. An update for the 2013 model year brought slight tweaks to the front and rear, but for the most part, the 370Z continues as it was introduced in 2009.

Three versions of the 370Z are available: Coupe, Roadster, and NISMO. All three share the same basic styling, though each has its own notable traits. The Coupe combines a clear sports car profile with aggressive, but not overstated details. The Roadster shares much of its shape with the Coupe, but thanks to its power-retracting soft top, gives a more muscular and sensuous appearance with the top lowered. With the top up, the lines are still relatively sleek and sporty; there's none of the awkwardness of the previous-generation 350Z Roadster.

The 2014 370Z NISMO model adds a strong dose of race-inspired aggression to the aerodynamics package, as well as larger wheels and tires. The end result is a car that's clearly more oriented toward high-performance driving, but also one that calls attention in a manner not everyone will like.

The cabins of all 370Zs are rather similar, with simple but pleasing designs and a functional, purpose-oriented theme. Materials and styling are greatly upgraded from previous-generation Z cars, but the upper end of the Z's range is restricted in its plushness to leave space for Nissan's premium-brand coupe, the Infiniti Q60.


The 2014 Nissan 370Z is a sharp-looking, instantly recognizable sports car icon.

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.
