Nissan’s 2017 370Z Rundown

The 2017 Nissan 370Z is a nicely priced sports car for anybody needing a little flair in their life. The 26 MPG highway may get you down a little bit, but hey, what did you expect here? It is a sports car, right? The sleek smooth look is sure to be a head-turner, no matter if you are out for a Sunday drive, on the long commute to work, or heading to the store for some milk. If you do need to get some milk back home to the baby, the 370Z will get you there and back – fast!

Models and Trim Levels

The 370Z is offered in three basic models each with its own set of respectable trims. The base model comes in convertible or coupe with your choice of automatic or manual transmission. The Nismo or Nismo coupe each offer their respective automatic or manual transmission options. The Sport and Sport-tech provide the same different transmission options, as well as the Touring and Touring Sports convertible. There is a 370Z Touring convertible option as well. As you can see, the trim and model options seem to be endless.

Base Coupe

The 370Z 2017 model year is offered in a new Chicane Yellow for the coupe or roadster models. The body has remained nearly the same over the past couple of years, however. As a step down from Nissan’s superior GT-R the 370Z is more affordable to the average consumer at a base MSRP of $29.990. The rear wheel drive 3.7-liter V6 powered coupe or roadster produces 332 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. If the Nismo model is purchased the power increases to 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft of torque. Both 370Z come standard with a six-speed manual transmission that has an optional SynchroRev match system to control engine revs during a downshift.

Speed and Safety

The 2017 Nissan 370Z has six different airbags to protect passengers and drivers, along with anti-lock brakes, traction control, and a head restraint system – all standard in the 2017 Nissan 370Z.

Great Deal

The Nissan 370Z has a 40% depreciation value over a five-year cost of ownership giving it an above average rating. This means that resale on the 370Z is very good. Of course, the Nissan 370Z NISMO Tech Coupe has a greater depreciation even though it is a more powerful car. The Nismo Tech starts at an MSRP of $45,490. Offering a convertible option in every model was a smart move by Nissan. If you are going to buy a sports car, why not have a little class and comfort with it?

Many say that the roar of the engine and the exhaust in the Nissan 370Z is enough to make you smile before even getting behind the wheel. The styling of the 2017 370Z is also a plus even though the model has not changed much over the past few years. You be the judge and check one out!
