Nissan tightens the noose around GT86’s neck by offering the 2015 370Z sports coupe from just $29,990. This ought to make life harder for the GT86/BRZ, which costs around 28 grand when you put a few options on it. For a grand more you can have two more cylinders, 132 more horsepower, and a much nicer cabin.
That said, a lot of people would still prefer the Toyota/Subaru seeing as that is the more fun car to drive, and let’s face it, the 370Z has not aged very gracefully. Still, should you decided you want the Nissan, you should know that it comes in Sport and Sport Tech grades (available in both manual and automatic transmission versions), and in Coupe, Roadster, and Nismo variants.
New features on the 2015 Nissan 370Z include standard Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System on all models and revised steering feel and suspension tuning. New black-finished 18-inch wheels are offered on 370Z and 370Z Touring models and the Nissan Navigation System is now standard on 370Z Touring. The Nismo model also gets a 7.0-inch VGA touch-sensitive display, RearView Monitor, Bose Audio System, and Sirius XM.
Engine-wise, the standard 2015 Nissan 370Z gets the old but still good 3.7 liter V6 with 332 horsepower. The Nismo version has the same powertrain, but with 350 horsepower and 276 lb-ft. of torque.
