Power manifests as low as 1900 rpm and flows in one great, seamless rush to redline, with no discernible variable-valve step.
by Car and Driver (Feb, 2009)
Now, this brilliant new automotive technology is encroaching on sacred ground by replacing a time-honed skill (aka rev-matching) with a microchip.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Power and torque are great, so good in fact that I would happily give up the close-ratio gears for a longer and more fuel-efficient sixth.
by MotorTrend (Apr, 2011)
Although the torque peaks at a high 5200 rpm, its curve feels exceptionally broad.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2011)
Let's say you want a third path – some unique combination of techniques (in my case, trail braking and incompetence) – the Nismo's good with that, too.

Powertrain

Nissan's six-speed manual is terrifically precise and feels stout enough to handle much more power than it's being asked to divide here.
by AutoBlog (Sep, 2012)
SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONDelivering the direct feel and fuel economy of a manual transmission along with quick, smooth shifts, the paddle-shifter-equipped 7-speed automatic found in the 2013 Nissan 370Z Coupe is a winner.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)
Nissan insists the engine offers better power delivery through redline, as well as improved low-end power and high-end torque.
by MotorTrend (Nov, 2008)

Body style

Much like the coupe, the Roadster is a blast to drive quickly.
by MotorTrend (Oct, 2009)
Nissan hasn't set pricing yet, but expect the roadster to command a decent premium over the hardtop coupe.
by MotorTrend (Apr, 2009)
Put it like this: aside from the Roadster's $37,000 price tag, we can't think of any reason to choose the stuffier, less dynamic 370Z Coupe.
by AutoBlog (Sep, 2009)

Handling

Nicely weighted steering also has good feel, and communication with the front tires.
by MotorTrend (Aug, 2009)
As part of its effort to improve the new Z's handling, Nissan added a new three-point front strut brace to the mix.
by MotorTrend (Nov, 2008)
An aluminum double-wishbone suspension sits up front, while the rear wheels are kept in check through an independent multi-link setup.
by AutoBlog (Mar, 2009)

Transmission

Even in base form, the 370Z is well equipped with automatic climate control, steering-wheel audio and cruise controls, keyless entry and start, xenon headlights and a 4-speaker audio system with auxiliary input.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)
Transmission choices include a seven- speed automatic and a six-speed manual.
by Car and Driver (Jan, 2009)
Nissan's automatic transmission works quite well, but call us old-fashioned: A 2-seater really needs a manual gearbox.
by KBB (Oct, 2012)
