The 2013 Nissan 370Z exudes sporty styling and performance yet keeps a reasonable sticker price, giving it a distinct advantage over other pricier sports cars. It comes in both a coupe or roadster body style and several trims, each with new features for the 2013 model year.
The standard model is a rear-drive, front-mid-engine, coupe driven by a 332-horsepower 3.7-liter V6. The front fascia is revised for the new model year and now includes LED daytime running lights, a new 18-inch alloy wheel design, and a revised selection of exterior colors including Black Cherry and Midnight Blue. Carrying over from last year is the choice between the seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters and a six-speed manual transmission with Nissan's unique SynchroRev feature. The interior cabin has more comfortable and supportive features than before, including adjustable seats and keyless entry/start. The mid-level 2013 Nissan 370Z Touring has leather heated seats, a Bose six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth connectivity, and aluminum trimmed pedals.
The high-performance NISMO also adds an auto-dimming mirror with HomeLink transceiver and more. Under the hood is a 350-horsepower, 3.7-liter V6 engine producing 276 pound-feet of torque. It also features an aerodynamic body design, NISMO-tuned suspension, 19-inch forged alloy wheels by Rays®, strut tower bars and dampers, and interior trim unique to the NISMO.
With less weight and a smaller wheelbase, the 2013 Nissan 370Z is even more nimble than previous years. This and the legendary chassis and gripping road-holding ability make it truly a sports car to be experienced.
