The 2023 Nissan 400Z is an all-new sports coupe that has been jam-packed with a spirited 400 hp twin-turbo 3.0L V6 engine under the hood. Having the Nissan Z price estimated to be starting at an MSRP of $40,000, one is destined to rumble with a 0-60 MPH of 3.5 seconds through this power beat.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The new Nissan Z specs 68 hp more thrust at the wheels than its 2020 Nissan 370Z sibling, making it much faster with high-end precision at stability. Along with that, cometh the first-ever Z-based Launch Control on offer as well that pumps it with enhanced grip and reduced wheel spin, thereby, upgrading far better than any other in the production lineage. 

As far as expenses are concerned, the Nissan 400 z can be expected to have maintenance within a ballpark of $5,700-$6,500 at the least in the span of 5 years. Also, a repair investment of more than $1,300 is pretty much going to be there in your budget for those same 5 years with a minimal depreciation of $20,000. 


Buying Advice

The Sport trim of the 2023 Nissan 400 Z will be enough for anyone who craves comfort, exhilaration, and isolation, all at once. Jolting with the same power dynamics and parallel convenience to a large extent, it makes complete sense to invest less for the Sport rather than choosing the Performance configuration for slight improvement overall. 

Features
8.0/10

The 2023 Nissan 400Z features two trims among which the Sport is the base configuration that has Intelligent Automatic Headlights along with a 6-speaker sound system as standard assets. The 8-inch infotainment system and 12.3-inch customizable gauge cluster display are also there for your use.

Spending almost $10,000 extra will allow you to throttle the Performance trim that tends to get Nissan Connect, an 8-speaker premium Bose audio system, and heated seats. We can even relish the exterior outplay of the 19-inch forged Rays wheels as well.

"Purists will rejoice at the rear-wheel-drive layout and the return of a proper six-speed manual transmission" - Edmunds

The 2023 Nissan 400z finds a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 engine producing 400 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque that is coupled with the standard 6-speed manual transmission in an RWD layout. However, it does give you the option to opt the 9-speed automatic transmission which hitches with Launch Control and unique paddle shifters(Performance trim only). 

Glittering in its 0-60 MPH mark, the 400 z is assumed to be capable of achieving the feat in just 3.5 seconds. Moreover, its newer monotube shock absorbers are fine-tuned to keep the isolation and vibration at their peak while maintaining the sync with new front geometry. Also, that mechanical limited-slip differential has been engineered to be efficient at distributing power curves at the required axles.

In terms of figures, the Nissan 2023 400z is $11,890 less expensive than the Toyota Supra 3.0 and yet it is 0.3 seconds quicker on the feet when accelerated from 0-60 MPH. In the meantime, the Chevy Camaro LT1 specs to have 55 hp extra to show off for a $4,805 costlier price tag but struggles to keep up with 400z by 0.8 seconds in the same 0-60 MPH.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

The Nissan 2023 Z fuel economy has not been registered by the EPA yet. However, a maximum of 28 MPG on the highway that may reduce to 20 MPG while driving on the city lanes can be speculated to be returned by a 400z engine.

As per speculation, the Nissan 400z can be 5 MPG more efficient in the city and can return 4 MPG better mileage than the Mustang GT on the highway. While the Supra 3.0 will be 2 MPG more efficient than the 400 z on all tracks. However, detailed analysis remains in the middle due to unavailable official data. 

Interior
8.0/10

From the driver's seat, it certainly felt like an aging sports car, with dated technology, a low-resolution infotainment screen, and an interior festooned in hard plastics - Motortrend

The interior of the 2023 Nissan 400Z will surely be a level up over the Nissan 370z. The front row sports car's high-bolstered seats are poised and finely cushioned and have been integrated with heating comfort as standard. While the yellow color contrast stitching on their leather upholstery and synthetic suede brings out the best design inflow. 

The available Gun Metal Grey finish in and around the 400z Nissan cabin is simply class defining and so are the leatherette and Alcantara touches on the door. Meanwhile, the standard 2-zone automatic climate control manages to keep you seated within the temperature threshold.

Going by the data, the 400z has space for only 2 which is 2 less than the Mustang GT and Chevy Camaro LT1. Not just that, despite being spacious enough on the front, the 400 z has 1.6 inches lower legroom than the likes Mustang GT. Apart from that, the Nissan Z 2023 has been given an 8-inch infotainment system on the inside.

The Nissan 400z is packed with a 12.3-inch customizable gauge cluster display as well alongside a 6-speaker sound system for the base Sport trim. Further improving the musical tunes for you inside the Performance trim is the 8-speaker premium Bose audio system that comes standard with a 9-inch touchscreen with Navigation and Nissan Connect.

"The 2023 Nissan Z pays homage to a wide range of previous Z sports cars." - Kelley Blue Book

The new 400z Nissan 2023 is exotic in its appeal with Ikazuchi Yellow Pearl tricoat finish on the silhouette along with other 5 two-tone colors and Yellow accented brake calipers behind those Bronze forged alloy wheels. With a long hood on the front and a short deck on the back, the Nissan 400z further radiates that sportiness right away.

Coming on the specifics, the Nissan 400z Performance configuration specs to have 19-inch forged Rays wheels, unlike the Sport trim but the "Katana Blade" outflow remains the same for both. And, with slight tweaking of the edges of those iconic LED headlights of the 240z, Nissan presents you the same vibe that can get even better with the Z-Proto package, exclusive for the Performance trim.

Based on the data, the conclusion remains inconclusive owing to unveiled figures by Nissan for the 2023 400 z to date which affect the dynamics and handling persona of this engineering beast. But one may notice some of the notable exterior features that have been mentioned below: 

  • LED headlights with daytime running lights
  • LED 300ZX inspired taillights
  • Dual exit exhaust
  • Black contrast roof
  • Bronze forged alloy wheels
Safety
9.0/10

The Nissan 400z 2023 has not been rated by the NHTSA and IIHS and is not expected to be tested anywhere soon too. However, its modified Z platform now hosts an even more satisfying safety suite that has below mentioned features:

  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • High Beam Assist
  • Intelligent forward collision mitigation system
  • Rear cross-traffic alert
Competition
8.0/10

2023 Nissan 400Z vs 2022 Toyota Supra 3.0

The Nissan 400z 2023 and the 2022 Toyota Supra have been brimmed with power performance without any compromise. However, the former seems to be a little more enthusiastic in its flooring than the Supra. Apart from that, both of them houses an equally sporty interior and insulation altogether. The technology embedded also makes no difference between the two. All in all, both have got what it takes to champion the segment.  

2023 Nissan 400Z vs 2022 Mustang GT

The Nissan 2023 Z is one of the most balanced sports coupes in the space and so is the 2022 Mustang GT. But when it comes to sheer acceleration, the 400 Z sprints faster than the more powerful Mustang GT. Meanwhile, the GT compensates for that gap with better spaciousness inside the cabin and technology options to be availed. Therefore, one can choose to go for either of them.  

2023 Nissan 400Z vs 2022 Chevy Camaro LT1

The Nissan 400z outclasses the power acceleration of the Camaro LT1 quite conveniently while being lower in the power surge. On the other hand, the Chevy Camaro can still thrill you with its higher power curve on the straights with enhanced standard handling dynamics which gives you that extra confidence. As far as exterior design and interior specs are concerned, there is nothing much to point out between them. Therefore, the choice remains for both sides here as well.   

 

Final Verdict

The new Nissan 400Z is said to overturn the market by offering exceptional value and performance compared to competitors. With an improved exterior design that is a perfect blend of previous Z cars and an improved interior with plenty of specs, the 400Z will make a lot of sense for buyers looking for a fun-to-drive sports car.
