Nissan makes a convertible version of its 370Z available for the 2010 model year. This car is lighter and smaller than its predecessor, yet has a bigger engine and more power.
Following a year after Nissan launched the 370Z Coupe, the 370Z Roadster comes out as a 2010 model. This soft top retains many of the features of the coupe, with a few additions and the fun of open-top motoring.
The handling is generally good, with just a little understeer that can be checked by the always ready engine power. Transmission choices are a six-speed manual with Nissan's SyncroRev Match feature or a seven-speed automatic.
The 370Z uses a driver-oriented cockpit. One thing we really like is that the instrument cluster is attached to the steering column, so adjusting the wheel up or down keeps the gauges visible to the driver.
Nissan offers its full suite of cabin electronics in the 370Z Roadster, which includes navigation with traffic and weather, iPod integration, streaming stereo Bluetooth, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system.
