2019 Nissan 370Z Heritage Edition coupe

Pros: Invigorating acceleration, especially with NISMO model; incredibly agile handling; occupies an attractive price and performance point in between lower- and higher-priced sports cars

Cons: Cramped, low-slung cabin is difficult to enter and exit; poor rear visibility; stiff ride; a bit too high-strung for everyday use for some drivers

CG Says: The 2019 Nissan 370Z gains a standard rearview camera and automatic-dimming rearview mirror. A manual transmission is no longer offered for the roadster. The 370Z is a sporty performance car offered in both hatchback coupe and convertible bodystyles. Base models are powered by a 332-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 engine, while high-performance NISMO cars have a 350-hp version of that engine. Coupes offer a choice of 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic transmissions, while the roadster is automatic only. The 370Z feels a bit long in the tooth compared to some of its rivals. Still, this exhilarating two-seater offers an undiluted sports-car driving experience, and it continues to occupy a “sweet spot” niche in the enthusiast-car market. A 370Z is much more affordable than a Corvette, yet it offers substantially more power than cheaper rear-drive sports cars such as the Mazda Miata and the Toyota 86/Subaru BRZ duo. By some measures, the Base 370Z might seem expensive, but considering its invigorating all-around performance, it’s actually something of a bargain. The Base coupes strike us as the best 370Z value; Roadsters struggle to justify their relatively high price tags. Even with an available automatic transmission, the NISMO is for serious enthusiast drivers only; its handling is a notch above the standard 370Z, but its excessive noise and punishing ride are too overwhelming to make it suitable as a daily driver.
