2020 Nissan 370Z vs. Its Competition

2020 Nissan 370Z
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Truthfully, the 2020 Nissan 370Z doesn’t have a direct rival.

The Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 twins are less costly when similarly equipped and they’re more precise but not nearly as powerful.

V-6 and turbo-4 versions of Detroit muscle cars feel more modern in most ways than the 370Z.

The Ford Mustang and Chevy Camaro match the 370Z’s spirited handling and are more livable on a daily basis.

The Dodge Challenger delivers bravado like few other cars, though V-6-powered versions priced like the 370Z aren’t as inspired.

Quick Specs
4.6
The 2020 Nissan 370Z is an old-school sports car that handles and accelerates well but feels like the dated design that it is.
5.8
It may look like a muscle car, but the 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is a sports car that can outperform rivals that cost much more.
5.8
The 2019 Dodge Challenger delivers macho retro looks in anything from a relaxed boulevard cruiser to a dragstrip specialist to a monster horsepower muscle machine.
6.0
The 2019 Ford Mustang finally gets it: Muscle-car power doesn’t have to come with muscle-car handling compromises.
5.3
The 2019 Subaru BRZ is a lightweight two-seater coupe that’s proof power and performance aren’t directly proportional.
5.2
If you value driving fun over pure power, there’s hardly a vehicle more up to the task than the 2019 Toyota 86.
