After a year of going unchanged, the Nissan 370Z Coupe and Convertible get some mild upgrades. A new front fascia is accompanied by LED daytime running lights, a new red reflector for the rear fascia, and new 18- and 19-inch wheel designs. The Sport Package adds a red finish to brake calipers and Euro-tuned sport shocks.

Both coupe and roadster use a 3.7-litre V6, mated to a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission or seven-speed automatic with downshift rev matching and adaptive shift control.

The manual transmission can be optioned with a Sport Package that includes a synchronized downshift rev matching system, which automatically controls and adjusts engine speed to blip the throttle. The system can be deactivated if drivers prefer to do it themselves. The package also adds sport brakes and 19-inch wheels.
