Description: The 2016 Nissan 370Z is ranked #8 in Affordable Sports Cars by U.S. News & World Report. See the full review, specs, pictures and prices.

Test drivers report the 2016 Nissan 370Z has a comfortable ride, nimble handling and a pleasing manual transmission, though they note many competitors offer better fuel economy, more spacious cabins and cost less.

A V6 engine powers the 2016 Nissan 370Z. Critics think it is powerful, though the V8 engines in many rivals are more potent. They say the standard six-speed manual transmission's rev-matching feature smooths downshifts and makes the manual fun to use. A seven-speed automatic is optional.

The 2016 370Z gets slightly fewer miles per gallon than its V6-powered rivals, with an EPA rating of 19/26 mpg city/highway. According to test drivers, the Nissan 370Z has sharp steering, powerful brakes and nimble handling around corners. The 370Z also has a smooth ride for a sports car, critics report.

Reviewers like the 2016 Nissan 370Z's handsome cabin design. Some note, however, that it hasn't been redesigned since 2009 and is showing its age. A few critics write the interior is built with mediocre materials, while others think they're higher quality. The Nissan 370Z's seats are comfortable and spacious enough for taller occupants. The trunk is small for the class in the Coupe and Roadster, and reviewers say there is little space in the cabin for storage.

Standard features include Bluetooth phone connectivity, a four-speaker audio system, an auxiliary audio input, a USB port, push-button start and automatic climate control. Available features include a 7-inch touch-screen navigation system, satellite radio, Bluetooth audio streaming, a Bose audio system and a rearview camera. Roadsters have a power-folding convertible soft top.

    "The Nissan 370Z's emphasis on balance means it's out-muscled by V8-powered coupes like the Mustang, Camaro or Challenger. Additionally, all three of those American muscle cars offer 300-plus horsepower and a lower price tag." -- Kelley Blue Book "The 2015 Nissan 370Z still holds some appeal as a dedicated sports car. But from the vantage point of practicality or performance, there are better choices available." -- Edmunds (2015) "The 370Z finds itself in a sea of damn impressive competition, and hacking the roof off adds more compromise and expense to a vehicle that doesn't need any help convincing buyers to look elsewhere for their jollies." -- Road and Track (2014 Roadster) "Enthusiasts will consider the rear-wheel-drive 2014 Nissan 370Z a pure sports car, defined by a robust engine, laser-precise steering, track-caliber agility and a race-inspired 2-passenger cockpit." -- AutoTrader (2014)

The Ford Mustang has nimble handling, according to reviewers, and it's available with a powerful V8 engine for less than the cost of a mid-level 370Z. The Mustang is available in coupe and convertible body styles, and both have a back seat and more trunk space than the 370Z.

The redesigned Mazda Miata convertible has agile handling and a slick six-speed manual transmission, according to test drivers. The Miata costs less than the 370Z Roadster and gets significantly better fuel economy. Critics report the Miata's manual convertible top can be folded up or down in about five seconds.

The 2016 Nissan 370Z seats two and comes in Coupe and Roadster body styles. A 3.7-liter V6 engine, rear-wheel drive and a six-speed manual transmission are standard. A seven-speed automatic transmission is available. Trims range from the base Coupe to the Touring Sport Roadster. A 370Z NISMO Coupe is available, and it includes performance-oriented upgrades to many vehicle components, including the engine, suspension and brakes. The Nissan 370Z hasn’t been fully redesigned since the 2009 model year and sees no major changes for 2016. As a result, this overview uses applicable research and reviews from the 2009 through 2016 model years.
