2018 Nissan 370Z coupe to start at $30,875

Nissan has announced pricing for its face-lifted Z lineup.

Nissan announced Monday that the 2018 model of its long-running 370Z will keep essentially the same pricing as the 2017 model (starting at $29,990 + $885 destination) despite a handful of changes and upgrades.

Mechanically, not much is different for 2018. New headlamps make for a very mildly facelifted look; some smoked chrome door handles, a new paint scheme in the rear (taking after the NISMO model) and updated tail lights. Manual transmission models also get an upgraded clutch sourced from EXEDY.

The Heritage Edition ramps up the visual enhancements with a unique paint scheme (It'll be available in "Chicane Yellow," pictured, and "Magnetic Black.) and takes that scheme a bit further with contrasting decals which hearken back to the original Fairlady--a model which will soon be a half-century old. The theme continues inside with yellow leather inserts in the wheel, console and shifter. Yellow contrast-stitched and embroidered seats round out the look.

The NISMO model gets a new set of tires (Dunlop SP Sport MAXX GT600) with a tread pattern borrowed from the range-topping GT-R. It also gets the same clutch upgrade found in the base-model Coupe. The manual-transmission NISMO model starts at $45,690 plus $885 for destination.

Those who prefer an open-air experience can opt for the Roadster model, whose base trim is equipped with a 7-speed auto. It starts at $41,820 + $885. If you want the manual, you're looking at $48,985 (destination included) for the Touring Sport model.
