2019 Nissan 370Z Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.5

The 2019 Nissan 370Z focuses on performance, which means it's good at delivering thrills but bad in other areas, like seating comfort and in-cabin technology. The cabin looks and feels antiquated, and visibility is poor. There's also very little trunk space.

  • "The Z's cabin is dated. It's hard to see out of. The shape of the door release handle is awkward — that might be acceptable if it wasn't something you touched every time you drive the car." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • Even without accoutrements, the Z felt special to drive around town. Perhaps we just aren't used to fixed-roof two-seat cars anymore, but the Z's interior design felt cozier and more driver-focused than a Mustang or Camaro. Still, corporate Nissan rules the switchgear, including a steering wheel that appears ripped straight from a Sentra. In place of the usual infotainment screen, a leather-wrapped compartment filled the space, with a simple display strip underneath for the radio." -- Automobile Magazine (2017)
  • "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 370Z seats two and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Well-equipped models offer features like heated and power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery, and Recaro sport seats upholstered in leather and Alcantara.

Though the 370Z might work as a daily driver for some people, its seats aren't that supportive on long trips. It's especially hard for tall people to find a suitable driving position. The 370Z also suffers from poor visibility to the sides and rear of the car.

  • Lateral support is commendable, but the firm seats without a lot of adjustments grow uncomfortable in a short period of time. The steering wheel is also tilt-only. Hard plastic armrests on the doors with a softer center console." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "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 370Z include a rearview camera, a six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a USB port, automatic climate control, a proximity key, and push-button start.

Available features include a 7-inch touch-screen display, navigation, voice recognition, satellite radio, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system.

Here's a fun bar bet for the next time you're out with your friends: Challenge them to name a new car with fewer features than the 370Z. They exist, but they're few and far between, and most of them have much smaller price tags than this Nissan sports car. On top of that, most of the 370Z's technology looks and feels outdated, though it is easy to use.

  • The base 370Z has a simple radio faceplate, which makes it easy to use when driving quickly is your top priority. But it's seriously lacking in modern functionality. The available touchscreen is dated but generally easy to use." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • The gem of the Tech trim level is the inclusion of a rearview monitor -- the sole driver aid feature you'll find in the Z's list of options. Thankfully, the camera's feed now outputs to the center display, rather than a tiny monitor set into the rearview mirror." -- CNET (2017)
  • “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)

Cargo

The 370Z coupe models have a 6.9-cubic-foot trunk, while roadster models offer 4.2 cubic feet of trunk space. These are among the lowest totals in the class. To make matters worse, the 370Z's sloping body shape means that even the limited cargo space you do have isn't that usable. There's not much cabin storage space for small items either.

  • "At first glance the trunk looks to have ample room. But due to the sloping rear hatch and chassis intrusions, only the cargo area's forward-most portion can hold a grocery bag without it getting partially flattened. Loose items will slide around no matter how carefully you drive." -- Edmunds
  • "Inside, you'll find a tiny cabin with a mere 6.9 cubic feet of cargo space. It was enough for my small overnight bag with enough room left over for a medium-sized backpack, but you'll have to be judicious in what you pack on road trips." -- CNET (2018)
