2013 Nissan 370Z: Mild Revisions Coupled With A Mild Price Hike

Nissan showed off its updated 2013 370Z range back in February, but didn’t disclose pricing information until now. Like most of the Z’s other revisions, price changes for the 2013 model year are relatively mild.

2013 370Z coupes receive a handful of revisions, including a new front fascia (complete with LED driving lights), a revised rear diffuser panel, new paint colors, and revised 18-inch wheels.

How much does this new equipment run you? According to Nissan, roughly $840. As a result, a base 370Z with a six-speed manual now starts at $33,900 (including $780 in destination charges); add the optional seven-speed automatic, and that figure rises to $35,200. 2013 370Z Sport models receive the same price hike, meaning manual transmission cars start at $38,600, while automatic-equipped models run $39,900. Option pricing remains unchanged, although the Sport Package – available only on Touring models – does receive new 19-inch wheels sourced from Rays, revised dampers, and red brake calipers.

2013 370Z Roadsters receive the same revisions as their coupe siblings, but see their prices hiked a bit further. A 2013 370Z roadster with a standard automatic transmission carries an MSRP of $42,440, which is about $970 more than a comparable 2012 model. As was the case last year, those who want a manual Z roadster need to step up to the Touring trim, and pony up $45,140. Add the seven-speed automatic to a Touring-grade Roadster, and its MSRP creeps up to $46,440.

The 2013 370Z Nismo coupe does without the new front fascia and the new blue paint hue, but does gain new 19-inch wheels, high-rigidity brake hoses, performance-grade brake fluid, and roughly $1360 to its price tag. MSRP for the 2013 Nismo model starts at $43,800; add a new optional Bose audio system, and that price point jumps to $45,120.

2013 Nissan 370Zs are already on-sale at dealers nationwide.

It is quickly losing it's bang for the buck.. I rather purchase a Camaro SS or Mustang GT 5.0 premium.
I am taking delivery of a new Scion FR-S next week. I have test driven Subaru BRZ(6MT) & the Scion (6AT) . I chose the Scion since it will be my daily driver and although I am sure the manual car has a slight performance advantage( on a track anyway) the better fuel economy and convenience in stop/go traffic conditions is to my advantage with the auto trans.The reason I chose over the Nissan product line is that while the 370z will obviously out perform the other cars mentioned. They(Nissan) keep getting further away from the original simplicity of the 240z and are trying to make Asia's answer to the Corvette!
