2009 Nissan 350Z Overview

The 2009 Nissan 350Z has the same 3.5-liter six-cylinder engine in all three of its trims: Enthusiast, Touring and Grand Touring. Each of the trims either comes with a manual or automatic transmission that get 17/24 and 17/23 mpg city/highway, respectively, which are below average for the class. Reviewers loved the 306-horsepower V6 engine, saying it’s just as strong as competitor’s V8 engines. Test drivers said the clutch on the manual can be tricky, and they recommended drivers who drive in a lot of stop-and-go traffic stick with the automatic. Reviewers noticed the 350Z's tight suspension gives it great handling but a bumpy ride. They praised the 350Z for its precise steering.

Reviewers did not find the cheap-looking interior of the 350Z attractive, but they appreciated the comfortable seats. Many of them commented on the spaciousness of the 350Z compared with other two-seaters in the class. However, don’t expect to fit too much luggage in the 350Z; it only has 4.1 cubic feet of cargo space, with or without the top down. The 2009 Nissan 350Z roadster has standard power seats, automatic climate control, a power soft top, cruise control and a CD player. Available equipment includes satellite radio, heated seats, Bluetooth, navigation, a Bose audio system and leather upholstery.

The 350Z has a high safety score for the class.

Other Cars to Consider

According to reviewers, the 2009 Honda S2000 handles winding roads with ease. With the standard four-cylinder engine, the S2000 gets better fuel economy than the 350Z roadster.  

The Nissan 370Z replaces the 350Z coupe for 2009. Test drivers loved its sporty handling dynamics, and appreciated the upgrade in interior quality over the 350Z. Automotive reviewers said that Nissan designed the 370Z to accomplish everything the 350Z did not.
