Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 23 - 24 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Nissan servicing is good value so the 350Z needn’t be an expensive car to run, although maintenance intervals of 9,000 miles mean you could have regular visits to your dealer if you’re a high mileage driver. Cosmetic changes for the 2006 models are minimal but the interior is much better. Not surprisingly, insurance is group 20 and it will only return 24mpg at best.

The 350Z Roadster is a polluting model with CO2 emissions of 288g/km – slightly more than the coupe, however fuel economy is similar at 24mpg.

Nissan has a fine reputation for mechanical reliability and we’ve heard of no major issues with the 350Z. It’s never been subject to a recall and is unlikely to let you down, as long as you keep to the service schedule.
