Nissan has given the 350Z coupe and roadster range a freshening both inside and out. The interior gains a door panel designed with a water-bottle holder, an extra cupholder in the center console, a new navigation system, and an MP3-compatible audio package. Outside, the brake lights are now groovy LEDs; the hood, grille, and headlights have been subtly revised; and forged aluminum Rays wheels (eighteen inches in the front, nineteen at the rear) are available on the Grand Touring model. That tuneful V-6 develops a bit more power, too: 306 hp for the base manual-transmission model. And the faithful will be pleased to learn that the electric responses, superb balance, and rear-wheel-drive charm of the beast are still intact. The entry-level 350Z costs $28,515, up just $250 from before.
