2010 Nissan 370Z Nismo

2010 Nissan 370Z Review

(3 Stars)  Fun and fast but some rough edges

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The 370Zis the current iteration in a long line of Z cars from Nissan. They have evolved quite a bit since their beginnings, but they still offer a great deal of performance for the money. With the introduction of the 370z, Nissan has put the somewhat portly 350z on a diet. Then made it smaller and added more power. What could be wrong with that formula? Along the way, numerous steel pieces were replaced with aluminum in the name of weight savings. The 370 Z is available as either a coupe or a roadster for top down fun.

All 370Z trims share the most powerful Z engine yet implemented. At 332 HP and 270 Ft. – Lbs. of torque, this 3.7 liter V-6 is a screamer. It can transfer this power to the rear wheels via either a 6 speed manual transmission or the optional 7 speed automatic transmission. A feature of note with the manual transmission is the SynchroRev technology which matches engine speed to wheel speed on shifts, even blipping the throttle on downshifts. It makes even the most heavy handed driver shift like the pros.
