Nissan 370Z updates revealed

Updates for the 2015 model year have been revealed, including improved suspension and seats

The Nissan 370Z has been given a raft of mid-life updates, designed to make the car more fun to drive and even better value for money. The alterations include significant mechanical changes to the top-of-the-range Nissan 370Z Nismo.

The standard 370Z range now benefits from 18-inch gunmetal alloy wheels, while inside there’s a new set of seats that are both stronger and lighter than before. The result is a more improved driving position, as well as a sportier look.

Under the skin, there’s a new suspension setup, which Nissan says makes the car more comfortable than before. Introduced across the range (including the flagship Nismo model), the changes not only include new springs, but a revised inner wheel arch and new interior carpets, which should both help make the car quieter, too.

The 3.7-litre V6 petrol engine remains, as does the choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic gearboxes. Performance is impressive, with even the cheapest model doing 0-62mph in 5.3 seconds. Top speed is limited to 155mph.

Changes to the top-of-the-range Nissan 370Z Nismo include more aggressive bumpers with big air inlets, as well as black headlight trim, red bumper inserts and new 19-inch alloy wheels. There’s also a smaller rear spoiler, which Nissan says creates more downforce, making the car grippier at high speeds.

Inside, there’s a set of new Recaro sports seats, which are said to offer improved support and comfort. Every aspect of the seat has been analysed by Nissan’s engineers to create the “perfect driving position.” The Nismo model benefits from the same suspension upgrades as the standard car.

Exact prices will be announced later this year, but we expect the new model to cost around the same as the current car, which is priced from £27,015.
