Despite significant upgrades for the new model year, the 2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo is actually $1030 cheaper than last year’s version. The Nismo coupe now starts at $42,800 (with destination) with a manual transmission, $44,100 with a seven-speed automatic transmission, $46,300 with a manual and the Technology package, and $47,600 with the automatic and the Tech package.
The addition of a seven-speed automatic transmission was one of the big changes to the 2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo, as previously the performance coupe came only with a six-speed manual. The Technology trim package also is new for the 2015 Nismo; it bundles touchscreen navigation, a backup camera, a Bose sound system with satellite radio and Bluetooth audio streaming, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Even aside from the new equipment, the 2015 Nissan 370Z Nismo stands apart from last year’s model thanks to a thorough refresh. It has a new body kit with red accents, LED running lights, a redesigned rear spoiler, new 19-inch wheels, and new Recaro leather and Alcantara seats. Under the hood, a 3.7-liter V-6 engine provides 350 hp and 276 lb-ft of torque, an upgrade of 18 hp compared to the standard 370Z’s V-6 engine.
The entry price for the standard 2015 Nissan 370Z coupe has not changed, and remains $30,800 for a base coupe with a manual transmission. Opting for the Sport trim, which adds larger brakes, a different steering ratio, and 19-inch wheels, pushes the entry price to $34,380. A 370Z Sport with the Technology package, which adds things like a Bose sound system, navigation, and a backup camera, costs $37,880. Finally, the 2015 Nissan 370Z coupe Touring with a manual transmission costs $40,080; it includes most of the features of the Sport Tech car but without the upgraded brakes, wheels, and steering. Opting for the seven-speed automatic transmission on any of those versions adds $1300 to the price tag.
The 2015 Nissan 370Z convertible offers a slightly different trim lineup, and costs a bit more than its coupe sibling. The base 370Z convertible with a seven-speed automatic transmission is $42,630, the Touring model is $46,080 with a six-speed manual or $47,380 with an automatic, and the 2015 Nissan 370Z convertible Touring Sport costs $48,910 with a manual transmission and $50,210 with an automatic.
