The 2018 Nissan 370Z Coupe comprises minor exterior and interior tweaks as the popular identity is kept intact;
no mechanical changes except for new clutch
Rolled out of the production lines since late last decade, the Nissan 370Z is an oldest sports car people can buy in international markets. Hardly things have changed over the years as Nissan kept the DNA intact and you cannot really blame them as it is a working formula. After all, why fix something that has not broken?
The Z series is popular in the North American countries for many a year and realising that the Japanese manufacturer is still coy over replacing it with a new generation. For 2018 though, it has received slight updates to keep the ball rolling. On the outside, it has been treated with standard tinted lights available on the Nismo at front and rear.
Additionally, it gets black rear bumper fascia, newly designed 19-inch ally wheels, black door handles, a new red metallic colour scheme, etc. The 2018MY Nissan 370Z Coupe features the same 3.7-litre V6 engine which is good enough to produce a maximum power output of 328 PS. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission as standard or seven-speed auto as option.
Nissan made changes to the clutch and it is a brand new one developed by Exedy. Present only on the manual model, it is claimed to reduce driver pedal effort and deliver greater levels of gear change precision and comfort while perfect the downshift. The Yokohama-based global auto major has introduced some much needed modifications on the inside as well.
The 2018 Nissan 370Z Coupe comes equipped with seven-inch touchscreen NissanConnect Premium infotainment system along with reverse parking camera, satellite navigation and DVD player. Nissan could be planning big for the next generation 370Z series because the Roadster and Nismo version are confirmed to continue without getting these updates.
