2020 Nissan 370Z Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 3.4

The 2020 Nissan 370Z’s cabin is perhaps the least impressive of any sports car. It shows its age with outdated styling and excessive cabin noise. The materials quality is decent, but the seats are a bit too firm for some, and visibility to the sides and rear is poor. Most competitors have longer features lists and more trunk space.

  • Even though the 2020 370Z in Sport trim and above has active noise cancellation (in place of heavy sound insulation), its cabin is not particularly quiet. But for a reasonably priced 2-seater performance car, it's bearable. The steering column only adjusts for height, which is quirky. … Apart from the blind spots, ergonomics is generally well considered, the seats are comfortable, and the trunk area provides sufficient luggage space for two golf bags." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "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)

Seating

The 370Z seats two and comes standard with cloth upholstery. Leather upholstery, Recaro sport seats, heated seats, and power-adjustable seats are available.

This coupe has reasonably spacious seats, though taller folks may have trouble finding a suitable driving position. The seats are firm, so they may not be comfortable on longer drives. Seeing out of the front of the car is easy, but visibility is more limited to the sides and rear.

The 370Z does not have LATCH connectors for securing child safety seats. We do not recommend installing a car seat in the front seat of any vehicle.

  • 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 six-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a USB port, automatic climate control, a rearview camera, proximity keyless entry, and push-button start. Available features include a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, voice recognition, satellite radio, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system.

Most competitors have more standard and available features than the 370Z. The infotainment system is easy to use, but it looks antiquated compared to most rival systems.

  • 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 has a 6.9-cubic-foot trunk, which is one of the smallest in the sports car class. As if that wasn't bad enough, the 370Z's sloping roofline means that the limited cargo space you do have isn't very 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 (2019)
  • "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)
