The 2014 370Z Roadster's exterior features an aluminum hood, door panels and trunk for reduced weight.

Following a facelift last year, the 370Z Roadster goes into 2014 unchanged. As in previous years, every 2014 370Z Roadster features a standard 332-horsepower 3.7-liter DOHC V6 engine with Variable Valve Event and Lift Control (VVEL) and a choice of 7-speed automatic transmission or close-ratio 6-speed manual with available SynchroRev Match (370Z Roadster Touring with Sport Package only).

While based on the foundation of the Nissan 370Z Coupe, the Z Roadster offers a number of unique features, including available high back net seats, added structural body reinforcements (compared to the 370Z Coupe) and the stylish convertible top. The 370Z Roadster's standard power automatic latching top was designed with an emphasis on providing a sleek silhouette with the top up or down, offering easy single-action open-close operation, and providing an enjoyable top-down experience with reduced wind turbulence and all-climate driver/passenger comfort.

The 2014 Nissan 370Z is also available in two hardtop models: the 370Z Coupe and the 370Z NISMO.

370Z's Exterior Design

The 2014 370Z Roadster's exterior features an aluminum hood, door panels and trunk for reduced weight. It includes additional structural reinforcement (over the 370Z Coupe), including in the A-pillars and side sills. The Z Roadster's exterior design incorporates the signature Z long nose/short cockpit proportions. The distinctive headlight/taillight treatment features an aggressive "boomerang" shape. The headlights are a High Intensity Discharge (HID) bi-functional xenon design with auto on/off feature and integrated LED daytime running lights. Eight exterior colors are offered for 2014 - Midnight Blue, Magma Red, Solid Red, Magnetic Black, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Black Cherry and Pearl White.

Driver-Centric Interior

The interior is completely driver-centric, with its three-layer design grouping items by how a driver sees information, operates the controls and is held in place - so drivers feel completely connected and engaged whenever and wherever they drive, top up or down.

The Z Roadster features high back black woven "Carbon" cloth seats with 8-way manual driver's/4-way manual passenger's seat adjustments. Touring models include unique leather-appointed seats with 4-way power/4-way manual operation on the driver's seat (4-way power on the passenger's seat). These seats are exclusive to the Zâ Roadster and have integrated heating and cooling functions - ideal for open air driving no matter what the outside temperature.

The Z Roadster's 2-seat layout includes a deeply scooped instrument panel with a full-length center console separating the driver and passenger's seat. The instrument panel retains the traditional Z 3-pod cluster with oil temperature, voltmeter and clock, while the speedometer and tachometer include an "initial sweep" function, coming alive when the car is first started. The steering wheel is an "oval" 3-spoke design, which offers baseball-style stitching and large thumb grips/palm rest areas for improved feel on long drives. The surface of the leather-wrapped wheel is "shaved" to provide a more kidney-like shape to better fit in the hand. The manual transmission shifter is specially padded to improve the accuracy of diagonal shifts and to feel softer in the hand for forward and backward motions.

Standard interior comfort and convenience features include Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, power windows with one-touch auto up/down feature, power door locks with auto-lock feature and a center console box with a non-intrusive cover design. Other features include automatic climate control, two 12-volt power outlets, three cupholders (two in door panels, one in center console) and an AM/FM/CD/AUX 4-speaker audio system with illuminated steering wheel-mounted controls.

The 370Z Roadster Touring model adds a 6CD Bose audio system with eight speakers (includes dual subwoofer) and MP3/WMA playback, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, HomeLink Universal Transceiver and aluminum-trimmed pedals.

The 2014 Nissan 370Z Roadster interior is available in Black cloth or for 370Z Touring Roadster models, a choice of Gray, Black or Wine (available exclusively with Pearl White and Black Cherry exterior colors) leather-appointed A/C and heated ventilated seats.
