Overall

Following a number of significant enåhancements just last year – including the addition of a revised front fascia with LED daytime running lights – the 2014 Nissan 370Z Roadster once again it offers an unmatched balance of dynamic performance, sculptured styling, innovative technology and exceptional value – along with the exhilaration of pure open-air motoring. For 2014, it is available in three models: the 370Z Roadster with 7-speed automatic, and the 370Z Touring with 6-speed manual or 7-speed automatic.Based on the 370Z Coupe, the Z® Roadster shares its engine, transmissions, suspension, platform and most major components with the popular hardtop model:

• Standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL)
• Choice of 7-speed automatic transmission or close-ratio 6-speed manual with available SynchroRev Match® (370Z Touring with Sport Package only)
• Refined 4-wheel independent suspension, 4-wheel vented disc brakes (with available red caliper finish Nissan Sport Brakes)
• And lightweight yet rigid body structure

What sets the 370Z Roadster apart from the 370Z Coupe is its roof, which is designed to provide a sleek silhouette matching the Z® Coupe’s stunning styling with the top up or down – while offering an easy, single-action open-close operation. The top provides an enjoyable top-down experience with reduced wind turbulence and all-climate driver/passenger comfort. The Z Roadster’s interior is completely driver-centric, with its three-layer design grouping items by how a driver sees information, operates the controls and is held in place so drivers feel completely connected and engaged. The 370Z Roadster again offers a long list of available technology, including standard Nissan Intelligent Key®, as well as available heating and cooling ventilated seats, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately) and advanced Nissan Navigation System.
