2009 Nissan 370Z: Trunk Review Lite
September 18, 2009
The 370Z served airport duty the last two days, allowing me to see how this sports car handled my admittedly light luggage requirements. However, you can see by this picture where the old 350Z's giant structural cross brace would've intruded upon the trunk. These bags probably would've been fine back there, but a pair of standard roller suitcases would've been questionable.
Also, note the 370's cargo cover that hides away your valuables from would-be car burglars (as well as preventing trunk contents from reflecting in the window). I'm pretty confident the old car did not offer such a cover as the brace would have impeded it. That brace was also known for casting a pretty nasty reflection in the rear window, which is obviously no longer there.
I didn't exactly throw the Queen's steamer trunk at it, but 370Z handled my modest cargo needs.
