2023 Nissan Z for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims, Powertrain, and Fuel Economy
Nissan’s seventh-generation Z is a two-seat sports car that’s currently made in Sport, Performance, and limited-edition Proto Spec trim levels. Each gets a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that produces 400 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. To the delight of those who truly relish becoming one with their car, a six-speed manual transmission comes standard. Drivers who aren’t as hands-on can opt for the available nine-speed automatic with aluminum paddle shifters. In keeping with the sports car tradition, the Z has a rear-wheel drivetrain. With the manual transmission, it pulls off an EPA-estimated 18 mpg around town and 24 mpg on the highway. The nine-speed automatic brings the fuel economy up to 19 city/28 highway.
The Sport trim’s exterior shows off some fully modern lighting (automatic LED headlights, signature LED daytime running lights, and double-ring LED 3D taillights), plus flush door handles, 18-inch wheels with high-performance rear tires, special Nissan Z fender emblems, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, and Nissan Intelligent Key (proximity entry). Its interior features are highlighted by automatic climate control, push-button ignition, a 12.3-inch customizable digital gauge cluster, two 12-volt power outlets, both USB-A and USB-C ports, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, illuminated vanity mirrors, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, shift knob, and parking brake handle. The Performance adds heated side mirrors, 19-inch wheels, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, a lockable dampened glove compartment, active noise enhancement and cancellation technology, power-adjustable heated seats with leather and suede trim, a premium leather-wrapped steering wheel, and aluminum sport pedals. The Proto Spec flaunts exclusive bronze-tone wheels, leather seats with yellow accents, yellow interior trim details, and cloth-and-suede door trim.

These technologies include adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, front and rear parking sensors, intelligent driver alertness, and hill start assist.
