The 2019 Nissan 370Z remains an attractive sports car despite its old platform and somewhat outdated style. Why? Because you won’t find another powerful two-seat sports car for so little money. Sure you can choose a lighter, more agile Mazda MX-5 Miata, but it won’t accelerate like the 370Z. Or you can go another route, dropping an extra 20K to 30K on the Audi TT RS or Porsche 718.
The 2019 Nissan 370Z is available as a coupe or a soft-top convertible. The coupe comes in base, Sport, Sport Touring, and Nismo trims, while the convertible comes in base, Touring and Touring Sport trims.
Every 2019 Nissan 370Z come with keyless entry and ignition, xenon headlights, rearview camera mirror, automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio and cruise controls, Bluetooth, and a 6-speaker audio system. The Sport Touring models add power-adjustable heated and cooling seats, leather/simulated suede upholstery and navigation. The Sport models get bigger wheels and a rear spoiler. The Nismo model has a more powerful engine, a stiffer suspension, various aerodynamic additions and sport seats. Safety features include stability control, six airbags, and active head restraints.
Under the hood, the 2019 Nissan 370Z robust 3.7-liter V6 engine simply one of our favorites. This engine produces 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, but the Nismo version bumps it up to 350 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque. Whatever you pick, the 370Z is strong, fast and responsive. Power sent to the rear wheels through a standard 6-speed manual or an optional 7-speed automatic transmission. The Sport and Nismo models have the SynchroRev Match function with their manual transmissions.
Fuel economy is pretty good for a sports car with this much power, but Nissan recommends using premium gasoline in both versions of this engine. In track testing, the 2019 Nissan 370Z manual accelerates from zero to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds. Top speed of 155 mph.
