The 2013 Nissan 370Z comes with a V6 engine that test drivers say is responsive and powerful. A six-speed manual transmission is standard, and most critics agree that its short throws and smooth clutch make the 2013 370Z fun to drive. With the six-speed manual, fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 18/26 mpg city/highway, which is decent for an affordable sports car. However, less powerful competitors like the Subaru BRZ and Mazda Miata use less fuel. Along with its powerful V6, test drivers love the 370Z’s strong brakes, athletic handling and responsive steering. As a result, many say that the 370Z is one of the most balanced, well-rounded sports cars in the class.
