2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster reviewed

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster.


Purposeful is the best word we can think of to describe the 2010 Nissan 370Z Roadster. The shifter is designed for the single purpose of letting you put it in the right gear. With a minimum of fuss, the handling lets you push the car through corners. And the engine generates a tremendous amount of power for such a small car.

With the top down, the passing scenery might try to distract from the pure joy of driving, but the nature of the car quickly brings you back to what's important, working throttle, steering wheel, and clutch in glorious harmony.

It doesn't hurt that you can get a solid suite of cabin gadgets in the 370Z Roadster. The navigation system can help you find good, mountain roads, and the stereo can serve as a soundtrack for the driving experience. And afterwards, you can use the Bluetooth phone system to call friends and rave about what a wonderful time you've just had.
