Truly tempting for loyal Z fans! |
Nissan Canada has announced that the price for the base 370Z Coupe will be reduced to an astonishing $29,998. Yes, you heard that correctly. The 300+ horsepower sports coupe from Japan will now be available with a manual transmission for under thirty thousand bucks.
The 370Z was previously getting a little bit long in the tooth, especially for the ~$40,000+ it would run you to get a nicely-equipped example. Nissan has given it a bit of a freshening with the addition of the Nismo model as well as a few other minor tweaks here and there. Of course, with Hyundai doing away with the 2.0L turbo-four in their Genesis Coupe, the base 3.8L R-Spec model can now be had for $29,495 as well, and that’s with 348 horsepower, just $500 less than the Nissan.
What does this paltry sum (relatively) get you? The $29,998 price tag applies to the base 370Z Coupe Enthusiast Edition, which includes “black-finished 18-inch styled alloy wheels, bi-functional Xenon headlights, automatic temperature control, black woven carbon seat cloth, independent double wishbone front, multi-link rear, sport tuned suspension, Bluetooth Hands-Free phone system and USB connectivity.” (Nissan Canada)
In the United States, the 370Z’s base price still remains $29,990 (USD), but it’s important to consider that the current state of the Canadian dollar means we get a break of approximately 20% on the car anyhow. This gives Canadian 370Z buyers considerable bragging rights over our US counterparts.
