2009 Nissan 370Z: Easy on the Elbows

September 14, 2009

The cabin in the Z is tight and pretty low to the ground. As a result, I usually kind of tumble into it right-elbow-first, using the center armrest for support. It helps that this armrest is nicely padded (though it's hard to discern that from this photo); this makes it a rather comfy place to lean into when entering the coupe.

As Erin mentioned in a previous post, the Z also has some thoughtful soft-touch fabric panels around the interior door handles. The cabin's so close, I usually find myself using my left elbow to nudge the driver door open when exiting, so the faux suede was definitely a good idea. Both the armrest and the fabric panels go a long way toward making the Z's cabin a pleasant place to be.
