For 2010, Nissan has taken over one-hundred pounds off the body and added more power behind the engine of their 370Z Roadster. This agile coupe had host Jessi Lang grinning as she took to the backroads and highways to test out this super-fast and super-fun convertible.
The 370Z boasts a 3.7-Liter V6 engine that produces 370 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It goes from 0-60 in about 5.1 seconds. Its advanced 4-wheel independent suspension has been made stiffer and lighter this year to improve its quick, responsive handles and ride comfortability. Fuel economy is manageable, you maintain about 18 mpg in the city and roughly 22 mph on the highway.
The comfortable interior maintains a racetrack-aesthetic, with digital gauges mounted into the dash that display all your pertinent information and a finely-tailored cockpit that make you immersed in a true sports car experience. And with the soft-top, the 370Z driving experience becomes a pleasure.
Our 370Z as tested, with the navigation package, came in at $45,270, up from the base price of $41,620.
The 370Z Roadster Touring boasts a lot of power and fun for your dollar, and is a tough competitor to beat in its price-range, a range which includes muscle cars such as the Mustang GT and Camaro SS, or sports sedans such as the Subaru WRX STI and the Lancer EVO. However, the 370Z easily stands on its on apart from the herd with its aggressive exterior, powerful drivetrain, and distinguishing, incomparable characteristics.
