Nissan Z
2017
Nissan Z 2017 coupe Trim Shown: 2017 Touring coupe RWD Manual
Employing a strong and smooth 3.7-liter V6, the Nissan Z delivers quick acceleration and respectable fuel economy. The six-speed manual is a bit stiff but easy enough to use, and it can match revs on downshifts. Handling is planted, with quick steering and lots of grip, but somehow the car isn't as engaging to drive as one would expect. The ride is very stiff and choppy, and road and tire noise are constant. The Z's well-finished interior is cramped, and visibility is lousy. The radio and climate controls are very low, and their labels are small. Convertible and stiffer-riding, higher-performance Nismo versions are available. A noise cancelation/enhancement system was added to quiet some of the interior racket.

2009 Redesign Year
Nissan Z 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Coupe NISMO
The coupe was redesigned for 2009, with the engine getting a displacement increase to 3.7 liters. The revised convertible followed a year later. This version of the Z car is a bit shorter and lighter than the one it replaced. It also has much better interior fit and finish. Nissan's two-seat sports car is quick, agile and enjoyable to drive. Its V6 is muscular yet cultured and smooth. Shift action is a bit notchy, but crisp and positive in feel. Handling is very agile, with direct steering and lots of cornering grip. On the other hand, road and tire noise are constant and the cabin is cramped. Visibility takes a back seat as well.
