Powerful engine; responsive handling; strong brakes; well-crafted interior; excellent performance
Poor rear visibility; excessive tire and road noise; limited cargo space; aging platform is short on latest safety and driver-assist technologies; no more manual for the convertible
The 2019 Nissan 370Z arrives with a simplified model line up. Last year's Touring and Sport Tech trim are consolidated to form the Sport Touring grade. Heritage Edition models gain two new colors (Deep Blue Pearl and Pearl White), and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with rearview monitor is made standard across the line. The 6-speed manual transmission is no longer available on the Roadster.
Both the coupe and the convertible 370Z deliver excellent performance at a reasonable price. We suggest that you go with the 7-speed automatic, which allows you to choose gears manually when the mood strikes. The Sport Touring has more upscale presentations, and a wider array of amenities that beat the base model's stripped-down interior. The NISMO is just too hardcore for everyday use, but the Sport trim brings the Z closer to NISMO caliber without the harsh ride.
The 370Z Coupe is available in base, Sport, Sport Touring and NISMO trims, while the Roadster is offered in base, Touring and Sport Touring.
The 370Z Coupe ($30,875) includes Nissan's Intelligent Key with push-button start, 6-speed manual transmission, power outside mirrors, windows and locks, a rear window defroster, cruise control, a tilt-telescopic steering wheel, 18-in wheels, steering wheel audio controls, HID headlamps, a rearview monitor, Bluetooth and a 4-speaker AM/FM/CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack.
The 370Z Roadster ($42,705) adds a 7-speed automatic transmission, power retractable soft-top with a glass rear window and power top operation via the Intelligent Key remote fob.
The 370Z Sport Coupe ($34,605) is offered only with the 6-speed manual and adds larger front and rear ventilated rotors, red brake calipers, a sport-tuned suspension, higher-ratio power steering, RAYS 19-in alloy wheels, a limited-slip rear differential, heated outside mirrors and aluminum trim pedals.
The 370Z Roadster Touring ($47,455) adds heated and cooling front seats, 240-watt 8-speaker Bose audio, hard-drive navigation with a 7-in tourchscreen, NavTraffic, NavWeather, Streaming Bluetooth, leather seating, 8-way power driver and 4-way power passenger seat.
The 370Z Sport Touring ($38,975) adds a 240-watt 8 speaker Bose audio system, hard-drive navigation with a 7-in touchscreen, NavTraffic, NavWeather and streaming Bluetooth audio. Also standard are leather and synthetic suede seats, a power driver's seat with adjustable lumbar support, a 4-way power front passenger seat, heated front seats, a rear cargo cover and aluminum-trimmed pedals.
The 370Z Roadster Sport Touring ($50,285) adds the upgraded brakes, suspension, steering and wheels from the 370Z Sport.
The 370Z NISMO ($46,575) adds a more powerful engine, 19-in RAYS wheels, a 6-speed manual transmission with rev-matching technology, red-and-black leather-appointed Recaro sport seats with Alcantara faux suede inserts, exterior and interior cosmetic upgrades and an extended front nose with an integrated chin spoiler. Also standard is a Bose audio and navigation setup, as well as the rearview monitor.
An automatic transmission adds $1,400 to the 370Z Coupe's bottom line. The Heritage Exterior package is offered on the 370Z Coupe in choice of Magnetic Black, Pearl White or Deep Blue Pearl. Options for the 370Z are limited to some dealer-installed features, including splash guards, carpeted floor mats and the Aerodynamic Kit (a rear spoiler and front wind deflector).

2019 Chevrolet Camaro -- The Camaro in V6 form is not as nimble or track-capable as the 370Z, but it's the more muscular straight-line performer.
2019 Audi TT -- The TT has a better balance of ride and handling and a more sophisticated overall package, but the 370Z has more cornering prowess, power and grip. Both offer extremely precise steering.
2019 Ford Mustang -- The Mustang is a worthy competitor to the 370Z, offering excellent track skills, power and performance at a much lower base price.
Used Porsche Cayman/Boxster -- The 2010-2016 Porsche Cayman coupe and Boxster convertible are midengine sports cars that offer better handling, as well as the exclusivity that comes with the Porsche name.
