Meet The 2018 Nissan 370Z Coupe
EVERY DRIVE is something special. An unmistakable connection between driver and machine. Fire up that 3.7-litre V6 and hear 332 HP sing through dual exhaust pipes. Take it into a turn and feel the dynamically balanced chassis just grip and grip. Revel at the world's first available rev-matching manual transmission. The drive of your life is waiting. Make sure it IS EXHILARATING.
It's a living legend. With the emphasis on living. The iconic lines, low center of gravity, wide track, and short wheelbase give it that unmistakable, instantly recognizable profile. And with a fresh look for 2018, the 370Z is more desirable than ever.
2018 370Z NISMO
Synonymous with passion, expertise, and especially the height of Nissan performance. NISMO puts its all into everything they build, from championship-winning racecars and accessories for street cars, to one of the world’s most desirable sports cars. With bumped-up power and pumped-up handling, the Z® has been transformed into a sports car singularly worthy of being branded 370Z NISMO.
The 370Z employs a three-layer design philosophy that makes you feel completely connected the instant you sit down.
From the Information Layer, you see everything at a glance: the windshield pillar has been minimized to improve outward vision, an oval steering wheel with large gauges enhances viewing, and gauges that adjust with the steering column are always easy to see.
At the Operation Layer, everything is easily reached and operated: the center console controls are shaped to be identifiable by touch, the low center armrest cover facilitates shifting, and the "kidney-shaped" steering wheel rim fits your hands to connect you directly to the 370Z.
The Holding Layer helps hold you in place during spirited driving with anti-slip material on the seat cushions and integrated knee pads on both sides of the center console. The uniquely bolstered driver’s seat provides enhanced support.
As long as there has been Z®, there has been a soulful 6-cylinder leading the way. In this case, the 4th-generation of the legendary VQ V6 engine. With a 3.7-litre displacement for massive muscle, this 332 HP dynamo features advanced Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) technology that continuously tunes valve lift and timing for quicker response and a broader torque curve, while optimizing fuel efficiency and reducing emissions. And while all this engineering may sound intriguing on paper, the exhilaration – on the straights or through the corners – is pure, pulse-pounding magic.
To harness all 332 hp, our engineers enhanced the design and material composites for key rotating components. The available 19" RAYS® forged alloy wheels feature a new design, and are stronger and lighter than typical cast wheels. And the reduced-rotating mass on the lighter, incredibly strong carbon-fiber composite driveshaft helps the engine rev more quickly.
SYNCHROREV MATCH® MANUAL TRANSMISSION
Available SynchroRev Match technology monitors the clutch, shift lever, and vehicle speed so that when you downshift, the system "blips" the throttle to the ideal engine rpm for a supremely smooth downshift. It also works when upshifting to give you seamless acceleration. If you want more traditional performance, you can turn the system off with the touch of a button. And for 2018, every Z® with a manual transmission enjoys a new EXEDY® high-performance clutch, for reduced pedal effort and enhanced precision and control.
All 370Z models feature zero front lift. If you’re after even more performance, go with the Sport model. It includes a lower front chin aero deflector and rear spoiler for zero rear lift.
The 370Z® keeps a strong connection to your world as well as the road. With the Bose® Premium Audio System, you've got an amazing choice of entertainment to create a soundtrack for your drive. And along with the touch-screen voice-activated Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System, you've got so much more than just directions.
Navigate through congested areas more conveniently with the available touch-screen, voice-activated Nissan Hard Drive Navigation System.Its advanced NavTraffic® feature displays color-coded, real-time traffic advisories to help you steer clear of the gridlock.
ACTIVE NOISE CANCELLATION (ANC) / ACTIVE SOUND ENHANCEMENT (ASE)
Working through the available Bose® Premium Audio System speakers, Active Sound Enhancement (ASE) brings the power of the 370Z – those growling engine sounds – directly into the cabin. Meanwhile, using strategically placed microphones in the cabin, Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) can identify and reduce unwanted low frequency sounds.
The available RearView Monitor uses a discreet colour camera on the back of your vehicle to help you see what's directly behind you via the Information Center monitor. On-screen guidelines move along with steering input.
SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION AND USB INPUT
NISSAN INTELLIGENT KEY®
SIRIUSXM® SATELLITE RADIO
Like every Nissan vehicle, the 370Z comes equipped with a suite of standard safety, driving, and convenience features designed to inspire confidence behind the wheel, and help make every ride better, safer, and more enjoyable.
TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)
When it comes to tire pressure, TPMS takes away the guesswork. Using an icon on your dash, the system notifies you when tires aren't properly inflated.
VEHICLE DYNAMIC CONTROL (VDC) AND TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM (TCS)
When it detects oversteer or understeer, VDC can reduce engine power and apply brake pressure to specific wheels. Working with VDC, TCS can sense rear-wheel spin and reduce throttle to help keep you on your steered path.
NISSAN ADVANCED AIR BAG SYSTEM (AABS)
The AABS includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. Their inflation rate adjusts based on crash severity and seat belt usage.
AUTOMATIC ON/OFF HEADLIGHTS
Automatic On/Off Headlights respond to light conditions outside, turning on or off when necessary, and leaving you to concentrate on the road ahead.
ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM (ABS)
When you need to stop in a hurry, the Anti-lock Braking System pumps the brakes faster than you possibly can, helping to prevent wheel lockup and maintain steering control.
SUPPLEMENTAL AIR BAGS
Built into the front seats, side-impact supplemental air bags move with you as you adjust your seating position. Door-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for outboard occupants.
ELECTRONIC BRAKE FORCE DISTRIBUTION (EBD) AND BRAKE ASSIST
Should you ever need to hit the brakes hard, Brake Assist will help you come to a quicker stop by applying maximum braking force. If you've got cargo in the trunk, EBD will detect the added weight, and send extra force to the rear brakes.
FRONT-SEAT ACTIVE HEAD RESTRAINTS (AHR)
Front-seat Active Head Restraints help reduce the chances of whiplash injuries to front-seat occupants by moving up and forward during certain rear-end collisions.
