It is no secret that there is a lot to talk about concerning Nissan Z models. Spy shots from our credible insiders report that the 2018 Nissan Z will carry a host of changes, expressly under its cabin, hood, as well as in terms of the overall appearance. This model aims at attracting public attention courtesy of its dynamic driving performance.
2018 Nissan Z – Attractive Design:
The upcoming 2018 Nissan Z will be completely overhauled, and thus we expect to see plenty of new things. Its interior and exterior design will allegedly be entirely refined, so it brings a whole new flavor to its devotees. Reports from our insiders indicate that the new Nissan Z will ride on a whole new platform. This may imply that we should expect to see a lot of changes regarding the car’s size. Some reports from reliable sources point that the new model will be significantly smaller than its previous counterpart.
There should be tremendous lots of changes on the car’s exterior segment. The central portion of its console will get a large touchscreen infotainment system. Since touch will complete most of the functions, the upcoming model will probably exclude a control panel. The upcoming model gets a Z-designed steering wheel as is the case with the previous models. The most fundamental addition will be touchscreen controls, which will be placed directly on the car’s wheel. It comes equipped with Nissan’s customized Zero Gravity seats that will also be coated in both leather and Alcantara.
Reports have it that the new model will be a small car, considerably smaller compared to its predecessors, and faintly closer to the ground. The front grill design will be a lot more identical with the ongoing Nissan Sentra, although it is expected to be somewhat wider. Besides, the upcoming model portrays a large Nissan emblem in the middle of its grill. The purported representation will be identical to the one featured on Nissan GT-R. The car’s headlights also get a major tweak. Its headlights will take a slightly broad stance with sharp bends finishing quite close to its mirror lights. This is technically designed to offer a more aggressive and sportier appearance to the upcoming auto. This car will also feature 18-inch wheels on the base models, while upper trims may go up to 20-inch regarding wheel size.
2018 Nissan Z – Engine and Transmission:
The upcoming 2018 Nissan Z conveys an incredible package of power and handling, but the engine appears outdated in this competitive market segment. Reports have it that it replicates the old-fashioned 3.7-liter V6 engine that churns out a mere 325 horsepower. It will be available with a six-speed manual transmission alongside an optional rev-matching. The seven-speed automatic transmission, however, may not be a good match in spirited driving.
2018 Nissan Z – Release Date and Price:
Reliable sources indicate that the new 2018 Nissan Z is slated to make its official debut sometime in the course of 2017, probably the first quarter of that year. With its incredible performance and enormous improvements, the price of this car is expected to go around $45, 000.
The 2018 Nissan Z will compete with Porsche Cayman, and Audi TT in the market segment. Let’s wait and see as more details unfold.
