Used 2019 Nissan 370Z Coupe
Which 370Z does Edmunds recommend?
The model that best represents the Z is the 370Z Sport. It features special powertrain bits, brakes and wheels that help it grip and stop better, and it comes only with the six-speed manual transmission and its nifty SynchroRev Match features. Opting for anything pricier just highlights how behind the times the Z has become.
Edmunds' Expert Review
- Sharp steering and precise handling
- Pure driving experience without excessive aids and assists
- Very loud with abundant road noise and unrefined engine
- Inconsistent control efforts make it difficult to drive smoothly
- Huge blind spots
- Base trim missing common standard features
- Auto-dimming rear mirror and rearview camera are standard
- Touring and Sport Tech trims are merged into Sport Touring trim
- Manual transmission no longer available with Roadster
- Part of the sixth Z generation introduced for 2009
|Overall||5.6 / 10|
A sports car should excel above everything else in performance. And while the Z manages to keep up with the competition in a straight line, its handling prowess is restricted by a lack of a proper differential and an unrefined drivetrain.
Small sport coupes aren't generally thought of as leaders in comfort, but the 370Z proves even more challenging when it comes to settling in. The genuinely impressive ride is one of the few bright spots, helping to take the edge off the elevated cabin noise.
Straightforward and easy to use, there is something to be said for opting for a base-model sports car. But this basic Z lacks some much-needed refinement and adjustability, which hurts comfort and visibility, which was already limited. The yellow Heritage Edition package does it no favors.
There's some practicality to be had with a hatchback but the 370Z could do things a little better. The trunk loses some space to the suspension configuration, and unless you buy an optional cargo cover, everything is exposed. Storage is included behind the front seats, but you should pack light.
At this base trim level, there really is no technology to speak of, and while basic can be good, the 370Z is woefully outdated. Asking more than $30K for a car this far behind is almost laughable.

Sport 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I got an all-black 2019 370Z sports coupe with the 6-speed manual transmission and have been loving it every day since I got it. I got this as a driver's car and it fulfills that role extremely well, better than the Porsche that I owned in the 90s. With the new Bridgestone Potenza S007 tires, road noise is not a problem. The car doesn't have alot of room for transporting cargo but that's not a big deal for me. Rear visibility at the 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock are restricted, so you have to be careful when backing up sometimes. The power is impressive and the handling is phenomenal, probably due to the fantastic tires. The tires do wear pretty badly, especially the front. When I park the car on the streets it very often turns heads as people walk by. Overall, I think it is a great value as an affordable ports car that makes mundane driving fun.

Sport Touring 2dr Coupe (3.7L 6cyl 6M)
I have a 2009 Sport Touring. If outdated means that it needs Fake Exhaust piped through the Audio and a Digital dash then don't read on. Someone here said "Great but Outdated." Do you want a real sports car with clean lines or would you rather have a Civic SI with chopped up look with Plastic bolt on spoilers that do nothing but add weight trying to make econo box look hotrod? Kinda like the Big three trying to make an SUV into a sports car LOL! Outdated is 332hp in a lighter platform that handles? Add Exhaust and Intake and you have 350hp NISMO power. A review here said 5.3 0-60. Just find or buy the upgrade Sport Touring with the Better brakes and an LSD Differential. Then you get the real 370Z .. Mid 4's 0-60 and a Low 13 1/4 mile. Exhaust and Intake can push it into the High 12's. ( over 1 sec. Faster than a Civic R) Handles as good as my old C5 Corvette or better. Reviews say it is hard to drive smoothly with the 6 spd Man.? Well the ABS intrudes a lot on take offs with it power it spins the tires easy. Hit the button to off and that power bog goes away allowing a smooth launch. Noisy?.. Tires! Crap OEM's. I bought mine with the Junk old Michelin Z rated All Seasons.. Noise! Now using the Continental DWS. Also it very easy to take all the trim out of the Rear Hatch where all the noise comes from and add Hush Mat or like I did Peel and Seal from Lowes. Worked on a C5 Vette and the same with the 370. Hwy at 70mph - 28-29mpg. In town 19mpg. Can't complain about that! Reliable.. 74K and no problems. LOVE IT!

First off it is incredible value for the money. I have owned a 2017 for 4 years no problems whatsoever. The handling and power with a manual is absolutely entertaining to drive. This is a sports car that has been perfected. There is nothing old about driving this beauty.
