Not a lot is learnt about Nissan’s next Z-car. Early in December of 2014, Nissan’s vice president and international head of marketing, Roel de Vries, hinted that the 370 Z’s follower could have a range of engines, depending on a provided market. Then, a week later, word spread that the next Z-Car would be introduced as a convertible (they were calling it “The Z”) and would probably have a 2.0-liter, turbocharged, hybrid engine. We’re intending to see the official debut of the next Z by 2018, but till then let’s have a look at our making and what we hope to see when it makes a main launching in the coming years.
2018 Nissan Z Exterior
As you can see, we think the 2018 Nissan Z will be low slung, and much like the 370Z, simply smaller. Up front, you’ll recognize a grille similar to exactly what we see on the 2016 Nissan Sentra, but for the Z, we’ve expanded on it a bit. Instead of a thin, flat-V-shaped divider, the grille embraces a wider divider with are vents on the sides and a big Nissan symbol right in the middle. The headlights are also of a similar design, but the outer points– the ones that point towards the side mirrors– those are longer and more noticable, providing the car a sportier set of eyes compared to the Sentra.
2018 Nissan Z Interior
I think Nissan is anticipating a lot out of its next Z-car, so I suspect the interior will be similar to the 2014 to 2015 370z Nismo, however a little better. The infotainment screen display will be of the touchscreen type, with a lot of infotainment operates done on screen– leaving no need for the control board listed below the screen on the 370Z. I think we’ll see the same Z-branded wheel, however it will be enhanced by a sleeker design and, by the time it is launched, it might even consist of some touchscreen manages itself. I believe the seats will likewise be a mix of leather and Alcantara, however remember that is just early-on speculation. As far as we know, the next Z-car is stated to slot before the 370 and 350zs, so it will most likely come at a lower cost– ultimately leading to a less luxurious cabin.
2018 Nissan Z Engine
It ought to be kept in mind, the 2018 Nissan Z will be smaller sized and lighter, that V-6 could be reduced much more and still provide 0-to-60 mph times in the 5- to six-second variety. Of course, Nissan could develop a whole new V-6 for the next Z-car and if that is the case, who understands what we’ll see under the hood. Either way, I do not think the brand will let us down with the decision they make. We just have to wait up until the time comes to see exactly what they develop.
2018 Nissan Z Release Date and Price
The new Z is anticipated to land in display rooms by 2018, with the base model priced in the low-$30,000 variety and the twin-turbo nearing $50K.
