Nissan 350Z Overview

Nissan 350Z Accessories

The current 350Z is sold as a convertible roadster only. The roadster is available in Enthusiast, Touring and Grand Touring trim levels. The Enthusiast trim level comes standard with a power soft top, xenon headlights, automatic climate control and power seats. The Touring adds upscale items like leather seating and an optional navigation system. The Grand Touring features luxury items from the Touring trim along with front and rear spoilers, upgraded brakes and stability control.

The sole available engine is a 3.5-liter V6 that cranks out 306 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. For this type of car, the V6 is just about perfect. It revs easily, if a bit coarsely at higher engine speeds, and develops plenty of power while managing to be reasonably fuel-efficient. Power is sent to the rear wheels through either a six-speed manual transmission or a five-speed automatic.

In reviews, we've found the Nissan 350Z to be an engaging sports car to drive hard. The V6 pulls strongly when revved past 3,000 rpm and generates one of the most distinctive engine and exhaust-note soundtracks available. The 350Z's ability to provide serious grip through corners has made it a favorite of our enthusiast editors. At the limit, the car's handling can be a bit tricky, and steady hands are required.

When employed on a daily basis, the Nissan 350Z doesn't make for such a compelling companion. Road and tire noise are considerable, and the car's stiff suspension transmits plenty of shock to its occupants when it's driven on rough pavement. Inside, the Z's cabin is functional but decidedly stark. Some of the interior trim is of low quality, and the luggage capacity of the roadster is compromised, even for this class of car.
