Nissan’s new Z Performance is a mini muscle car that packs a serious punch. Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough power to propel the little car from 0-60 mph in just 6.0 seconds.
The engine is mated to a six-speed manual transmission, but a seven-speed automatic is also available. Nissan has also given the Z Performance a sport-tuned suspension and beefier brakes to help it handle the extra power.
Visually, the Z Performance stands out from the standard Nissan 370Z with its aggressive body kit that includes a front splitter, side skirts, and a rear diffuser. The car also gets a set of 19-inch wheels and a rear spoiler.
Inside, the Z Performance features sporty Recaro seats and a host of other performance-oriented upgrades.
Nissan’s new Z Performance is a welcome addition to the company’s lineup. It’s a fun, stylish, and affordable car that should appeal to a wide range of buyers.
