Like its Coupe sibling, the all-new 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster is smaller, lighter and more powerful than its predecessor. It also benefits from curvier sheetmetal, a higher-grade interior and new technologies like available Bluetooth streaming audio.
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.
