The 2014 Nissan 370Z Satisfies Bloomington Nissan Fans’ Expectations

For those looking for an affordable sports car experience, the 2014 Nissan 370Z is the answer to your prayers. None of that sedan-masquerading-as-a-sports-car experience. The exterior is as sleek and low as you'd expect a sports car to be and, as Aaron Gold of writes in his review of the vehicle, it's got an engine to match:


The star of the show is the 3.7-liter V6 engine. The VQ, and its EPA fuel economy estimates of 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway on premium gas, is a bit of a throwback to the days when fuel costs weren't terribly important. Nothing throw-back-ish about the performance, though: The 370Z accelerates with a soulful wail that four-cylinder turbo engines just can't recreate. And while the fuel economy figures aren't stellar, they are honest; we saw right around 19 mpg in our day of driving.

With that under the hood, you can be assured that this is a Nissan for Bloomington, IN residents who'll want a powerful ride that can burn rubber. Moreover, all that power is under strict control; the 370Z features a ScynchroRev rev-matching feature, a six-speed manual transmission, and wider tires. The rev-matching automatically sets your engine to the appropriate RPM when shifting into lower gears, while the wide tires and adaptable transmission assures that the car sticks to the pavement. All of this combined makes it a smoother, comfortable, and safer ride for travelers.

The car rides extremely well - and looks great while doing it. The 370Z's exterior goes against today's trend of going bigger. Low-slung and with flared fenders and a cantilevered roof, it has that sporty look to it, which can be enhanced by buying the full sports package that adds front and rear spoilers and bigger tires and wheels. The interior can be tight, with seating only for two, but the comfortable seating makes up for it. The additional features like keyless entry and start, cruise control, and Bluetooth don't hurt either. With all of the 2014 Nissan 370Z's features, a Nissan enthusiast would be well-advised to take a trip to dependable Bloomington Nissan dealerships like Royal on the Eastside to check out the new Nissan models fresh out on their game.
