2013 Nissan 370Z
It certainly faces some competition but the 2013 370Z is very well able to hold its own as one of the best options of an affordable sports car. The mention of sports car conjures images of price tags that have several zeros at the end but not this one and this is one of the most appealing things about it. This one is very fairly priced with MSRP from $ 33,120.
Available as a hatchback coupe or soft top convertible, the model also packs quite a punch in terms of features. The design of the front end has been revamped to include LED running lights. The suspension dampers have been redone as well and so have other external style features like the rims.
Sports cars are also associated with break neck speed and high risk but not the 2013 370Z thanks to all the safety features that it has. Side airbags, traction and stability control and anti-lock brakes are standard. In the Roadster, the side airbags have been extended upwards to ensure the head is also protected in case of impact. In the coupe, there are curtain airbags.
With the safety concerns taken care of, you can relax and have fun and there are certainly enough features to make driving this car a pleasurable experience. With the 332- horsepower, the car gives superb straight line performance.
Thanks to its leaner dimensions and top range handling, the driving experience is altogether very enjoyable. Another striking feature is the 2013 370Z is the SynchroRevMatch feature for the manual transmission that has no less than six speeds. It will blip the throttle automatically when it is downshifting to synchronize with the speeds of the wheel and engine perfectly. Rev up the engine and you will feel like you are ready to trounce the top ranked rally driver.
There is also a certain standard of interior style that is expected of sports cars and the 2013 370Z does not disappoint in this regard either. The interior has several luxury touches that excite the eye while keeping driver and passengers comfortable. It is comfy enough to take long field trips in. it is also interesting enough with music streaming in from the four speaker system and CD player and auxiliary audio jack.
The 2013 370Z is in a word, impressive. It will impress you and you will leave a great impression as you cruise by.
