Visually, Nissan has added black door handles and a black rear bumper, while tinted head and rear lamps are now standard. New 19-inch alloy wheels have also been fitted along with a new red exterior finish on the options list. Inside, a seven-inch touchscreen featuring sat-nav, DVD player and a rear-view camera is standard on GT as well as Nismo models.
We’re told the new clutch reduces driver pedal effort and provides “even greater levels of gear change precision and comfort”, especially when coupled with Nissan’s rev-match system dubbed ‘Syncro Rev Control’. The 370Z Nismo remains the same.
Nissan claims a combined cycle fuel figure of 10.6L/100km. Around town, we saw a commendable 10.8L/100km but that blew out to 14.2L after some spirited mountain twisties, before dropping to 12.0L after a highway run back into town. All in all, that’s not a bad return against Nissan’s claim.
The latest Nissan 370Z is available to order from dealers now, with prices starting at £29,185.
