An icon since 1970, the Z is the epitome of outstanding price/performance. For around $27k, the base Z offers a 300hp 3.5L V6, 6-speed manual, fully independent suspension, rear-wheel drive and eye-catching styling that does not detract from the performance image. Higher trim levels add more performance-oriented goodies like a limited-slip differential and Brembo brakes. Some cushier features are offered like a leather interior, automatic transmission and DVD-based navigation system. The only knock on the 350Z is that the interior should feel a little more solid to the touch -- but chances are you won't notice.

What Changed:

Updated front bumper, headlights and grille. 300 hp is standard on models with the 6-speed manual. Rear LED lighting. Revised HVAC controls.
