For 2017 Nissan has decided to offer the new 370Z in as many as six variants with only minor differences under the hood. The base version comes with a 3.7 litre DOHC, 24-valve, V6 aluminum alloy engine that can produce 332 hp of peak power. The engine now features Variable Valve Event and Lift (VVEL) for faster response and a broader torque range with the redline going all the way up to 7,500 rpm. The technology also improves fuel economy, with Nissan claiming 19 mpg for the 370Z in city driving conditions.
The car’s 7-speed automatic transmission has been designed with a wide spread of gearing to allow for efficiency and silent cruising at high speeds. The 370Z gets a double wishbone suspension in front and multilink in the rear. Sport tuned shock absorbers do credit to the vehicle’s sports car performance. US retail prices begin at $29,990.
