The 350Z comes as a two-seat coupe or roadster. The interior features aluminum trim, highlighting its performance reputation. The gauges and controls prove easy to read and simple to operate. The sport seats feel well-bolstered, and the overall cabin feels snug for two adults. The coupe’s trunk capacity totals only 6.8 cubic feet; trunk space in the roadster totals just 4.1 cubic feet.
Standard features for the 2007 Nissan 350Z include a driver’s seat with height adjustment, cloth upholstery, bucket front seats, power door locks, power windows, a front console with storage, retained accessory power, speed-proportional power steering, a 12V power outlet, a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel, climate control, a tachometer, a trip computer, and a 160-watt audio system with AM/FM/CD and six speakers.

Performance & Handling
The 350Z’s V-6 engine generates 306 hp and 268 lb-ft of torque. The NISMO has been timed at 5.1 seconds in a zero-to-60 mph sprint, making it the quickest car you can buy for the price. Braking proves excellent, stopping from 60 mph in 109 feet.
All of the 2007 Nissan 350Zs in this model year come equipped with a 3.5-liter V-6. Transmission options include a six-speed manual, available across the vehicle line, and a five-speed shiftable automatic, which comes in all trim levels except the NISMO.
Steering proves responsive and quick, and overall handling feels excellent. The tight suspension gives it a bit of a rough ride for occupants when driving on uneven pavement. The engine sits behind the front axle, offering an even 50/50 weight distribution between the front and rear. This enhances the 350Z’s ability to hug the road on curves.
The NISMO, with its sport-tuned suspension and hand-welded chassis, has all of the sports car competition beaten with regards to performance and handling on the track.
Standard safety equipment for the 2007 Nissan 350Z includes four-wheel ABS with emergency braking assist and electronic brake force distribution, traction control, and tire pressure monitoring. Side-impact and side-curtain airbags come standard on convertibles and optionally on the coupe. The Grand Touring offers optional electronic stability control (with the manual transmission only).
