Pricing for the regular 370Z coupe drops to $49,990 plus on-road costs, representing a $6400 discount compared to the 2017 model year, while the 370Z roadster drops to $60,990, or $4940 off.
The change in entry level price helps shore the aging 370Z up against newer rivals including the Ford Mustang and less powerful, but much cheaper Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ. The new pricing is in stark contrast to the Z’s launch pricing, with the range starting from $67,990 in 2009.
Under the bonnet the 370Z packs in an unchanged 3.7-litre naturally aspirated V6 engine producing 245kW and 363Nm outputs. Inside features like satellite navigation, a 7.0-inch touchscreen, leather accented seats, and Bluetooth connectivity remain.
Buyers looking for a more extreme interpretation of the Z can step up to the 370Z Nismo for $61,490 plus on-road costs, becoming only the second of Nissan’s more focused motorsport-inspired Nismo range after the GT-R Nismo.
Full details of the 370Z Nismo for australia are yet to be revealed, but mechanical changes will see a higher-revving version of the 370Z’s V6 produce 253kW of power in a package that weighs 1480kg. A unique front and rear styling package, larger alloy wheels, and upgraded handling and brakes are expected to form part of the Nismo upgrades, but no roadster will be offered.
All 370Z variants can be optioned with a seven-speed automatic for an extra $2500
