For 2014 changes to the 370Z line are limited to the higher-performance Nismo version, with dark gray exterior accents highlighted by red pinstripes, a new steering wheel and a red Nismo tachometer.
A minor facelift gives the Nissan 370Z a slightly softer-looking front end and incorporates distinctive vertical LED running lights. The Sport Package gets new shock tuning and red-finished brake calipers. The Nismo edition gets more rigid brake lines and now offers some of the available features from the Touring package.
For all-around enthusiastic driving enjoyment and for its carefully-crafted balance, the 2014 Nissan 370Z strikes a chord that makes it just right. The V6 engine is smooth, quick, powerful and responsive as a cat after a bug. It's hooked to a precise-shifting manual transmission (with an automatic available). The 370Z's handling is more track-day ready than most of its owners will ever require, yet its ride is perfectly acceptable for daily errands. And it looks great, inside and out. Price-wise, the 370Z's competitors are among the Chevy Camaro, Ford Mustang and Hyundai Genesis Coupe, but for many it's in the category of the Porsche Cayman or Audi TT. Either way, it offers lots of capability and at a price that doesn't require being a hedge-fund manager.
