Scorecard

Interior: 7.1

Critics seem split when evaluating the interior of the 2017 Nissan 370Z. Some say you’ll experience high-quality materials, while others comment that the design is outdated compared to most other sports cars. They point out that the Z has remained mostly unaltered since its first issue in 2009 and doesn’t feature a lot of up-to-date technology.

  • "One of the biggest problems with the Nissan 370Z is the fact that it's gone largely unchanged since it was introduced in 2009. Every major competitor has received a thorough redesign in that time period, and that has left the 370Z looking a bit stale and behind-the-times from a technology standpoint. Also, the Z's tiny cabin, small trunk and elevated amounts of road noise continue to be notable drawbacks." -- Edmunds
  • "The 2016 Nissan 370Z now has available active noise-cancellation technology, which helps quiet the interior without adding heavy sound-deadening materials. That fits in with the upscale materials and quality feel of the 370Z.” -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)

Seating

The 2017 Nissan 370Z has seating for two on standard cloth upholstery. Heated and power-adjustable leather seats are available in higher trim levels, and NISMO models feature Recaro-branded sport seats covered in leather and Alcantara.

Reviewers report that the seats are comfortable and provide plenty of support, especially in lively driving situations.

  • "The seats feature sporty contours that excel at keeping occupants in place during spirited drives, and long-distance cruising comfort is respectable as well. Although the steering wheel doesn't telescope, Nissan compensates to an extent by providing a gauge cluster that moves with the wheel's tilt adjustment. Still, you'll want to make sure that your arms are comfortable with the reach to the wheel, because you won't be able to adjust it." -- Edmunds
  • "Comfortable seats and decent cargo space add to the everyday livability of the 370Z, as do clever details like a main gauge cluster that tilts with the steering wheel." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "Aside from its commendable sporting performance, the regular Z is still a fine car for the daily commute. Its ride is compliant enough to get you where you're going comfortably." -- AutoTrader (2015)

Interior Features

Standard features in the 2017 Nissan 370Z include a four-speaker audio system, a USB port, Bluetooth phone connectivity, automatic climate control, and push-button start. Roadsters have a power-folding convertible soft top. Available features include a rearview camera, satellite radio, a navigation system with a 7-inch touch screen and voice recognition, and an eight-speaker Bose sound system.

Critics find the instrument gauges and other controls in easy sight from the driver’s seat and convenient to operate. They also admire the quality of materials in the cabin.

  • “The instruments and controls are easy to read and right where you'd expect them, and the three gauges in the center of the dash hearken back to the original Z from the 1970s." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "When you get inside the 2015 370Z, you'll see higher-quality materials than you'll find in just about any of this sports car's rivals." -- Edmunds (2015)
  • "As with past Nismos, upgrades include contrasting colors on the faux-suede seat inserts, the gauge hood, the ten and two positions on the steering wheel, and a red centering stripe on the wheel. The upgraded materials are all nicely chosen and the cabin is a very sexy place to live." -- Autoblog (2015)

Cargo

The 2017 Nissan 370Z Coupe has 6.9 cubic feet of trunk space – the lowest in the class, though some reviewers find it adequate. The Roadster has only 4.2 cubic feet, which is very small, even for a convertible. In addition to poor cargo space, reviewers notice that there isn’t much room to put things in the cabin either.

  • "The Nissan 370Z isn't for drivers who like to pack for every occasion. Interior quarters are very tight, with limited space for small items in the cabin and restrictive cargo space. … The coupe's rear visibility also leaves much to be desired, as does its meager 6.9 cubic feet of cargo space. Competitors like the Mustang and Camaro have 9.1 cubes and 13.5 cubes, respectively. The convertible Z drops to a laughable 4.2 cubic feet, making it tough for a couple to pack much more than soft-sided weekend bags." -- Edmunds
