Exterior Features
The 2013 Nissan 370Z is offered in coupe and 2-seat convertible (Roadster) body styles. Both are available in base or Touring trim, while the NISMO model is exclusively a coupe. Standard equipment includes 18-inch wheels, performance tires, and xenon headlights with LED running lights, LED side marker lights, and LED taillights. Roadsters have a power top with a glass wind deflector.

Interior Features
Every 370Z comes with automatic climate control, keyless entry and push-button ignition, 8-way driver's seat adjustment, and a basic stereo.

Optional Features
Touring models add Bluetooth hands-free calling, power heated leather seats (also ventilated on the Roadster), upgraded interior trim including aluminum pedals, and a premium Bose audio system with satellite radio.

The NISMO model builds on the base car, adding a negative-lift body kit, more powerful engine and sophisticated manual transmission, limited-slip rear differential, upgraded braking components, H-pipe exhaust system, performance suspension, strut tower brace, and super-lightweight 19-inch wheels.

Both the base and Touring can be upgraded with a Sport package including some of the NISMO model's upgrades. A hard-drive navigation system with a reversing camera is an option for the Touring trim, and includes Bluetooth streaming audio, USB/iPod connection, and an audio/video input jack for the in-dash screen.

Under the Hood
Every 2013 Nissan 370Z is equipped with a 3.7-liter V-6 engine. In the NISMO 370Z, the V-6 is tuned to generate 350 horsepower at 7,400 rpm and 276 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,200 rpm. Non-NISMO 370Zs generate 332 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and 270 lb.-ft. at 5,200 rpm.

A 6-speed manual gearbox is standard, and includes SynchroRev Match on the NISMO 370Z. On all but the NISMO model, a 7-speed automatic transmission is available as an option. The automatic transmission features steering wheel paddle shifters, manual shift gate, and Downshift Rev Matching.

Fuel Economy
EPA fuel-economy estimates for the 2013 Nissan 370Z are:
  • 370Z coupe with manual transmission: 18/26/21 mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • 370Z Roadster with manual transmission: 17/24/20 mpg
  • 370Z coupe with automatic transmission: 19/26/22 mpg
  • 370Z Roadster with automatic transmission: 18/25/21 mpg

All Nissan 370Z models have 6 air bags; the side-impact head protection for the Roadster model deploys from the door panels rather than the roof. Additionally, traction and stability control is standard, as well as 4-wheel ventilated-disc anti-lock brakes. A reversing camera is included with the optional navigation system.

As this overview is written, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has performed crash tests on the 2013 Nissan 370Z.
