The cabin is simple, functional, and pleasing, designed to be purposeful. The materials and are premium, one step shy of luxury. The leathers, upholstery and switches feel durable and supple. But you won’t confuse the cabin for a Mercedes SL.
The four-way power seats are low and snug, with decent padding that’s comfortable for many body types. Still, the fairly stiff ride will get you. The seats are heated and cooled on upper models.
The power convertible top is quick to use, but it lets wind noise into the cabin when it’s up, and takes up trunk space (as they all do) when it’s down. It’s the nature of a soft top.
The standard wide tires are loud in the cabin. So is the engine, even with the noise-canceling system that’s standard on all models except base. Some engines we want to hear at full song, but the aging V6 in the 370Z is less mellifluous than it used to be.
Forward visibility is good but rearward three-quarters not so good, on account of thick pillars in the coupe and roadster. That worrisome blind spot, looking over your shoulder when pulling onto the highway at an angle, can’t be helped. However a rearview camera is standard on all models except base.
