The 2023 Nissan Z comes with a sassy twin-turbo V-6 that comes with harmonious driving and a six-speed manual. Nissan has made a Z for the modern age, complete with lots of laid-back styling elements that make a perfect homage to the history of the sports car.
The Z Nissan draws design inspiration from past models but gives us a glimpse into the future with updated technology and much-needed interior modernization. The new Z will go on sale as a hardtop coupe in summer 2022, but a convertible version may come later. The 2023 Z still represents a bargain compared to key competitors like the Toyota Supra and Audi TT.

The complete redesign brings a comprehensive upgrade for the 2023 Z’s cabin. Everything looks and feels fresh and modern, and the car has enough high-quality materials to justify its price. The three performance indicators on the front panel are a nice nod to the model’s past. In-cab tech is another big leap forward for the new Z compared to its predecessor. Smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is making its debut in a Z-car, and the main infotainment touchscreen generally works well. However, the graphics still seem a bit outdated.
More commendable is the all-digital instrument cluster. It can be configured to display different pages and vehicle information. This screen looks great and can be easily viewed while driving. Controls such as climate, volume, and adjustment are still in the form of ergonomic physical knobs and knobs, which many will enjoy. The standard infotainment system includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, satellite radio, voice recognition, and two USB ports. Available infotainment features include a 9-inch touchscreen, navigation, Wi-Fi hotspot, and eight-speaker Bose stereo.
