2007 Nissan 350z review and picture


One thing that the Nissan maker is good at is consistency. When it creates a bad car, it’s hard for it to pull said car out of that deep, deep hole. But when it hits the jackpot with a vehicle, as it did in the case of the Nissan 350z, the rewards just keep on coming. Now entering the new year’s competition after five years on the market, the 2007 Nissan 350z is still going fanatically strong and remains one of the best options out there for buyers who want an emphasis on quality performance.

The Good:

  • powerful V6 engine
  • brakes and handles well
  • high quality for cheap cost

The Bad:

  • some of the material used on the inside is cheap
  • no option for telescoping wheel
  • harder to see towards the back
  • cramped trunk space

The Nissan 350z has been redesigned in several ways for the 2007 model year, most significantly in its most important parts–what’s under its hood. This year the engine has been pumped up to a V6 engine with 306 horsepower, making the past models of the 350z look like they were just leading up. More things have been changed than just the engine, with the new Nismo trim level to take the place of the former Track. Bluetooth connectivity is a new option this year, and now all of the roadster body styles come with side impact airbags standard.

There are two body styles for the 2007 Nissan 350, the roadster and two door coupe, as well as four trim levels, the base, Enthusiast, Touring, and Grand Touring. Base comes with the following features standard:

  • 18 inch wheels
  • automatic climate control
  • power windows
  • xenon HID headlights
  • keyless entry

If you want your car better equipped, you would do well to opt for the Enthusiast trim level, which includes vast improvements in this area, with:

  • traction control
  • limited-slip rear differential
  • auto dimming rear view mirror
  • cruise control

If you get the roadster body style and the Enthusiast trim level, then you can also get a power soft top. The Touring trim levels brings the more luxury features, adding:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Bose stereo
  • seat heaters
  • leather upholstery

Then comes the final, the best of the best of the 2007 Nissan 350z, the Grand Touring trim level. This top of the line level adds:

  • front and rear spoilers
  • light wheels
  • stronger brakes

The trim levels are very well equipped, but it may still come as a surprise that option list for the 350z is very small. You can include a navigation system or a satellite radio, but it doesn’t go very much beyond that.

The roadster body style of the 350z has not been tested for safety yet, and indeed the coupe has only undergone side impact government crash tests. The prospects seem good, though, considering it received five stars. Equipped with antilock disc brakes, the coupes also have the option of side and head curtain airbags, which are standard on the roadster. If you get the top of the line level, you can get Brembo calipers and rotors.
