The 370Z is one of those exceptions to the rule when it comes to new year models; most seem to tweak things and add a thing or two over the entire course of the model and maybe update the look slightly. Well, in the case of the Nissan 370Z, pretty much everything has been improved. One of the biggest upgrades has been the interior, which for the past year's models, hasn't exactly been anything....well, at all. Previously the interior had a lot of "hard plastic" which gave it a considerably "hollow" feel, but now the materials within are more soft-touch oriented and really give the car a more complete feel.
The tight steering and handling are wonderful assets of this car. This is especially exciting considering the power that is under the hood. For 2009, the Nissan’s V6 engine, known also as "VQ", has grown from 3.5 to 3.7 liters, increasing the 306 horsepower found on the 350Z to 330, as well as a 268 to 270 lb-ft of torque in the process. How can you go wrong with this?
The bottom line is that with the vast improvements inside and out, the Nissan 370Z not only is a great car, but also one that is one of the most economical in the sports car arena, ranging from 29K to 41K. It is definitely worth a look if you are considering a sporty model.
