2017 Nissan 370Z Sport

The 370Z is the latest in a long line of Nissan sports cars to wear the Z badge. It features agile handling, a smooth ride, and a standard V6 engine sending power through a precise-shifting manual transmission or available automatic transmission. The V6 makes 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque.

That might not be as much as the 350-horsepower NISMO model, but the Sport trim, which starts at $33,750, features a limited-slip differential, 19-inch wheels, upgraded brakes, and the SynchroRev Match system, which “blips” the throttle while downshifting. This feature replicates the driving advantages of “heel-toe” driving without having to master the unique driving skill.

As creature comforts go, the Z Sport offers a Bose premium audio system with eight speakers.
