2017 Nissan 370Z Driving Impressions


The 370Z offers excellent driving dynamics and mostly excellent ride quality. It’s nimble as well as powerful, well done. However it has a slightly dull steering feel and there’s not much communication between road and wheel. It’s still rewarding and engaging to drive hard.

The 332-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 isn’t as refined as some rivals and doesn’t sound sweet at full song. It’s Nissan’s well-worn VQ engine series, more reliable than the previous 3.5-liter but also more mechanical sounding.

Both transmissions are slick and respectable. We like the 6-speed manual for its short, stiff throws between gears. Rev-matching downshifting eliminates heel-and-toe, and unlike heel-and-toe gets the throttle blip right every time. The paddleshifting automatic also does the blip, and with an automatic it’s all good because it doesn’t take away anything, from the driver.
