Nissan 370Z Interior
Critics say the 2014 Nissan 370Z has a sporty interior design with straightforward controls, although some think the materials could be a bit nicer. Some reviewers note that a lot of road noise makes its way into the cabin. Several automotive journalists mention that small windows and thick rear roof pillars limit rearward visibility, but they mention that the seats are comfortable, supportive and large enough for tall drivers.
- "For a sports car intended for serious driving, the 2014 Nissan 370Z interior is functional, upscale and artistic." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Regardless of how the 370Z is equipped, we've noticed it suffers from intrusive road noise, which severely limits its appeal as a road-trip car." -- Edmunds
- "Overall, the 370Z's cabin has a suitably sporty vibe. Interior materials are a bit pedestrian overall, though textured dashboard plastics, contrast stitching, and padded surfaces are effective at livening up the ambiance." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The Nissan 370Z seats two and comes standard with cloth seats. Touring models come with leather seats that are heated and power-adjustable, while NISMO models get embroidered cloth seats with red stitching. Reviewers say the 370Z has comfortable, supportive seats, with plenty of room for tall occupants. However, several reviewers mention that small windows and thick rear roof pillars limit rearward visibility in the coupe.
- "One downside to the car's styling is that the thick rear roof pillars and small windows make for limited visibility out the back and an overall ambience that some people might find confining." -- Edmunds
- "The seating is comfortable and supportive." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "Padded knee rests for both the driver and passenger are a comfort plus." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "The Z's two-seat cabin is big enough for taller drivers, and the relationship between the seat and steering wheel makes for a great driving position." -- Cars.com (2013)
The 2014 Nissan 370Z comes standard with automatic climate control, push-button start and a four-speaker audio system with an auxiliary audio jack. Options include a backup camera, navigation, Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, a USB port and a Bose audio system.
Automotive journalists like the 370Z’s intuitive audio and climate controls, as well as the adjustable gauge cluster, which moves with the steering wheel so you have a clear view of the speedometer and tachometer. They say that the roadster’s cloth top takes too long to go up and down, although they like that it folds away tidily underneath an attractive hard cover.
- "The instruments and controls are exactly where you'd want them to be when the motoring becomes more enthusiastic. Other details include soft-touch surfaces, accents of metallic-looking trim and a main gauge cluster that tilts with the steering wheel, keeping the tach and speedometer clearly visible at all times." -- Kelley Blue Book
- "The Roadster's power top is a bit pokey by current standards, requiring about 20 seconds to go down, but we like that it folds itself neatly under a color-matched hard tonneau cover at the end." -- Edmunds
- "It takes roughly 21 seconds to raise the 2014 Nissan 370Z Roadster's top from its lair under the back tonneau to its rightful place behind the windshield. This seems like an entirely reasonable amount of time until you find yourself pulled off into a side parking lot, mashing the top mechanism control button in impatient fury as the entire volume of the Pacific Ocean dumps into the cabin courtesy of a surprise thunderstorm." -- Road and Track
- "The 370Z's control layout is pleasingly simple and straightforward. Audio and climate controls are mounted low on the central control panel, but they fall easily to hand and are simple to use." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
The Nissan 370Z coupe has 6.9 cubic feet of trunk space and the roadster has 4.2 cubic feet of room. Some reviewers report that the 370Z’s trunk is useful and easy to access. However, critics say that the 370Z could use more storage spaces for small items in the cabin.
- "As in most sports cars, luggage space is scarce, with just 6.9 cubic feet of storage under the coupe's hatchback and a paltry 4.2 cubic feet in the convertible's trunk." -- Edmunds
- "Cargo space isn't outstanding but it's usable and accessible." -- Kelley Blue Book (2013)
- "There are some hidden bins behind the seats, but interior storage is otherwise meager, with a small glovebox and center console." -- Consumer Guide (2013)
- "Behind the front seats is a miniscule cargo ledge and storage cubby. The cloth top doesn't intrude on trunk space, but all you get is a precious 4.2 cubic feet, top up or down. That's about half the space of a Mustang, Camaro, 1 Series or Audi TT convertible." -- Cars.com (2011 roadster)
