2013 Nissan 370Z review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

The two-seat Nissan 370Z sports car receives a number of cosmetic changes for the 2013 model year, but the V-6 powertrain carries over unchanged. Available in June 2012, the 2013 370Z will again be offered in coupe, roadster and high-performance NISMO form. Competitors include the Hyundai Genesis coupe and Ford Mustang.

Exterior
Z fans will spot the subtle design tweaks, but they’ll likely go unnoticed by most observers. Changes include a restyled front lip spoiler that trades the fangs on its predecessor for a cleaner, sleeker look. There are also new LED daytime running lights at the front corners of the car. The only change to the rear is a new red reflector below the license plate. NISMO versions, which have unique front and rear styling, don’t receive these changes, but they do gain high-rigidity brake hoses and performance brake fluid.

The 370Z has standard 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and 19-inch rims are optional. These sizes are available for the 2013 model year, but the designs are new. Nineteen-inch wheels are included with the Sport Package, which gains red brake calipers and retuned shocks.

Interior
The Z’s two-seat cabin is big enough for taller drivers, and the relationship between the seat and steering wheel makes for a great driving position. Though the interior doesn’t see any significant changes for 2013, materials quality is still decent.

Standard features include manual cloth seats, a CD stereo and cruise control. Options include power-adjustable leather seats, a six-CD stereo, a navigation system and a backup camera.

Under the Hood
The 2013 370Z is powered by Nissan’s familiar 332-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6. The engine teams with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission. In NISMO models, exhaust and engine-computer tuning yield 350 hp from the same engine. Nissan’s highly effective SynchroRev Match, which takes the guesswork out of engine rev-matching when downshifting, is optional for the manual transmission.

Safety
Standard safety features include antilock brakes with brake assist, side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, an electronic stability system and active head restraints.

My favorite among its class.

It is not the most comfortable or easy to get into but its efficiency, reliability and ability to develop excellent response on the road make it my favorite among its class. .

In Virginia

Love this car, have had no problems. The only draw back is their is a big blind spot due to the tiny side window and sloped back. If you are a big guy it's hard to get in and out Also low clearance so watch those curbs and terrain

Great car

Had this car for 3.5 years. Though not perfect - I loved it. Nice power when you needed it. Decent MPG. Very reliable. Maintenance was not bad at all. Nice features with the Touring trim level.
