2013 Nissan 370Z Overview

By Cars.com Editors
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. Opti...

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.

Fast and corners like on rails

by Chuck from Elizabethtown KY on July 12, 2018

This car isn't designed for comfort, but its fast and handles amazingly well. Power is thrilling but be careful on slick surfaces...its rear wheel drive. Read full review

Most fun, affordable car I've ever owned

by FairwayDave from Sharpsburg, Ga. on February 12, 2018

Had a 350z and moved up to my 370z. Looks great, drives great. Very reliable. Negatives are: small, shallow trunk; lack of a 6 disc CD changer which I wanted. Get about 23 mpg if I drive it nornally. ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
