Fuel economy

Petrol engines 23.2 mpg

With a tuned 3.7-litre V6 engine under the bonnet, Nissan 370Z Nismo running costs are never going to be low.

On less expensive 370Zs the seven-speed automatic proves to be the more economical but that’s not available on the Nismo, leaving just the six-speed manual.

Official fuel consumption figures suggest 26.6mpg is possible but we found 22mpg difficult to maintain.

Adding to the running costs, the 370Z Nismo also runs on 98 RON super unleaded petrol – several pence per litre more expensive than regular unleaded.

With CO2 emissions of 248g/km the Nissan 370Z Nismo can’t be described as a green car.

That’s enough to place the Nismo in the second highest grouping for polluting cars, VED car tax band L.

It’s too soon to know for sure how positive new Nissan 370Z Nismo reliability will prove to be, but the regular 370Z’s record, as well as Nissan’s as a whole, are broadly good.

The trim and switchgear feels substantial enough and although the engine’s been tuned to release more power, we’re only talking of an 11bhp increase, not the sort of level which is going to stress the drivetrain to the extreme.

Meticulously maintaining the car’s service record as well as ensuring the Nismo’s substantial body kit remains free from damage, thus reducing the risk of pieces falling off and causing further maladies will also help preserve its reliability record.
