Japanese carmaker Nissan has refreshed the 370Z by giving the long-serving sports car a few visual upgrades along with a few mechanical tweaks.
Mechanically, the big change comes in the form of an EXEDY performance clutch for models of the 370Z which are fitted with the 6-speed manual gearbox. The suspension setup has been refined to deliver better ride quality and handling.
Cosmetically, the new Nissan 370Z sports include a new rear bumper along with tinted headlights and taillights, blacked out door handles, and a new red exterior paint job. The new 370Z from Nissan for 2018 sits on distinctive 19-inch alloy wheels.
Inside, the 370Z sports Nissan's latest 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which also features sat-nav, a reversing camera along with a DVD player. The interior changes are present on both the GT and Nismo models, however, the Nismo model does not get the exterior visual upgrades.
Under the bonnet, the 3.7-litre V6 engine remains unchanged and kicks out 324bhp to the rear wheels through either a 6-speed manual gearbox (with the new EXEDY performance clutch) or a 7-speed automatic.
The changes to the facelifted Nissan 370Z are mostly cosmetic to help it keep in touching distance of the newer Jaguar F-Type and the Porsche 718 Cayman. However, 370Z design is getting a bit in the tooth and it is high time that Nissan either gives it a whole new design or brings out a replacement.
