2009 Nissan 370ZFinally, the Z stops looking like a beetle that ate too many Oreos. We take a look at the 2009 Nissan 370Z on the floor of the LA Auto Show.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:03 >> I'll be honest with you. The current 350Z never really said "Z" to me. Yeah, it's a hot sports car, but I'm a Z classicist, so I like the lines of this on a lot more. Say hello to the new 370Z, completely restyled. Has a lot more of the sinew we used to see in the 240, 260, 280s from back in the day. Now, under the hood is a whole new era, of course. That 3.7-liter V6 puts out 330-some odd horsepower. That's pretty chunky. And the transmission choices are interesting. You can get a seven-speed automatic with all the sporty technology, but check this out. A first ever downshift rev matching manual six speed. That's gonna be interesting to try out when we get one of these in our fleet. Inside the cabin tech is pretty rich. iPod adaptor of course. 9.3-gig of hard drive storages available. The nav has live traffic through XM. And the whole interior instrument had been redone rather nicely. The new 370Z, we'll have a review of this one on the road very soon at CNET Car Tech. ^M00:01:03 [ Music ]
