Used Car: 2011 Nissan 370Z Review

Review Last Updated: 4/23/13

For the most part, reviewers liked the 2011 Nissan 370Z. However, its rough engine and subpar interior put it in the middle of the pack.

The 2011 Nissan 370Z is ranked:

The 2011 Nissan 370Z is available as a coupe or convertible, and comes with a 332-horsepower 3.7-liter six-cylinder engine and a six-speed manual transmission. An automatic transmission is available. The 370Z Nismo models have the same engine, but produce 350 horsepower. The 2011 Nissan 370Z gets a maximum fuel economy rating of 19/26 mpg city/highway, which is typical for the class. While reviewers loved the V6 engine’s power, some critics thought that it could be smoother or more refined. While most loved the 370Z’s athletic handling, one test driver noticed some nose dive when braking in his test car. Still, others said the 370Z has responsive steering and a well-balanced ride.

Most reviewers said the 2011 Nissan 370Z fits two people comfortably, but some noted that road noise can be an issue on the highway. Additionally, some test drivers said that taller people might want more headroom. The 2011 370Z coupe has 6.9 cubic feet of trunk space, which is low for the class. The convertible model has 4.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the soft top up or down. Standard features on the 2011 Nissan 370Z include cruise control, keyless ignition and entry, automatic climate control, an eight-way manual driver’s seat and four-speaker sound system with CD player. The 370Z has available features like a six-disc CD changer, satellite radio, a navigation system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth and an iPod interface.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2011 Mazda Miata is a reviewer favorite among two-seat sports cars. They liked its athletic handling and peppy engine, and the Miata earns a slightly higher reliability score.

The 2011 Ford Mustang is one of the few cars in the class that received a safety score, and it held up well in crash tests. The Mustang can seat up to four, and like the 370Z, it’s available as a coupe or convertible.
