The Nissan 370Z is the successor to the successful and highly-praised Nissan 350Z. Just like its predecessor the 370Z features retro inspired styling which draws heavily on the first generation of "Z" cars like the Datsun 240Z.

The stylish exterior of the Nissan 370Z, which isn't going to offend anyone, builds on the solid foundations built up by the 350Z. Despite being an entirely new car the most noticeable changes to the untrained eye are the headlights and taillights which are formed in a striking hook shape. The chiseled lines of the car give the impression of a body milled from a single block of metal (it's not by the way). At the rear the short overhang and muscular wheel arches give the car a sporting and powerful appearance. Looks are definatley this car's strong point.

The interior of the Nissan 370Z is also somewhat reminiscent of the previous car, featuring similar triple gauge clusters, round air vents, steering wheel mounted "Z" badge and supportive sports seats. A good range of options was offered with the 370Z, enough to satisfy most buyers. On the downside, the plastics inside feel a little cheap, but then that's what you get with an affordable performance car. Also the steering wheel is only adjustable for rake, meaning very tall, or very short drivers might feel a bit uncatered for. Cargo space in the Nissan 370Z is also a bit meagre.

Power for the Nissan 370Z comes from a front mounted, 332 horsepower, 3.7 litre V6 mated to either a 6 speed manual gearbox or 7 speed automatic driving the rear wheels. The engine is strong with good power delivery, however it isn't the most characterful or refined powerplant ever developed.

The chassis of the Nissan 370Z is good, but it's not up there with the best. The heavy steering provides good feedback, but on tight corners the car can feel a bit cumbersome and unwilling to turn in and hold the line. It's not a screaming back roads carver, but it's enough for most drivers who just want a good looking affordable sports car with bags of character.
