This year marks the sixth generation of the Nissan 370Z. As part of the Japanese automaker’s indefatigable commitment to improvement, the engineers added a bit more bravado to the 370Z via a handful of upgrades. Most of the changes augment the driving experience from inside the cabin, considering the car’s performance has always been nothing at which to scoff. That’s why 2015’s model still offers a 3.7-liter V6 that creates 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque – and it still comes with both a six-speed manual and automatic transmission.
Consumers can choose between two new trim levels: Sport and Sport Tech. These trims incorporate features previously available in other packages, offering more comprehensive bundles with greater appeal.
Limited-slip differential and 19-inch Rays alloy wheels underscore a few exterior changes on the Sport trim; meanwhile, the interior boasts a set of three gauges that sit atop the dashboard, an iconic race-car-inspired look that displays the voltmeter, oil pressure, and time.
For those interested in the Sport Tech package, a bit of extra financing gives drivers all of the benefits of sportier aesthetics, but it also includes a navigation system, tire pressure monitoring system, and other technology features for safety and entertainment (Bose audio, RearView Monitor).
Some upgrades are universal, such as Bluetooth and altered suspension and steering.
Oh, and for you gearheads in Raleigh, Cary, and the surrounding area, Nissan also debuts an incredible 370Z NISMO for 2015. Borrowing a chic, flowing design from the GT-R, the NISMO model’s front fascia looks more aggressive and road-hungry. This model, for the first time, comes available in automatic transmission – but don’t worry, friends, the seven-speed manual is alive and well.
If this driving experience sounds like fun, then you don’t have to travel very far from downtown Raleigh. At Leith Nissan in Cary, the staff is ready to take one and all out on the road with the Nissan 370Z.
