Flaunting itself with its ambitious performance and impressive exterior design, the 2023 Nissan 400Z is all set to hit showrooms in the Spring of 2022. The latest reincarnation of the 370Z will be released as a 2023 MY offering. Powered by a 400 hp twin-turbo V6 engine, the Nissan Z is a modern-day sports car. Moreover, because of its ambitious performance, we can expect the 400Z to be more expensive than the model it’s replacing with prices starting somewhere in the mid-$40,000 range.

Apart from the base variant, we can also expect a Nismo and a convertible version of the same 400Z. The interior is well fitted with the latest technological gizmos, which is a significant improvement from the previous generation. A special edition Proto Spec will also grace the lineup. Although, it will only bring about certain aesthetic upgrades. The new Z-model dubbed the 400Z is now aimed at big guns like the Toyota Supra and BMW Z4. As such, we can expect several improvements including performance, safety, and handling.

Overall Rating

The new 400Z will get a completely different design based on the Z Proto concept, which looks a lot like the 240Z with sleek lines and with a much-needed overhaul to the interiors. As expected, the 400Z will get plenty of features including several advanced safety features. The new 400Z is aiming to kick off the seventh generation in style, with two varied trims and a special edition variant.

What is the Price of the 2023 Nissan 400Z?

With all these updates and feature additions, the 400Z will cost significantly more than the 370Z, with prices expected to start at an MSRP of $40,000, placing it into the crosshairs of the BMW Z4, and Toyota Supra. We can expect the base models to start at $40,000 which will produce around 400hp with a slick-shifting 6-speed manual transmission. The automatic models will start at $48,000, while the track model is expected to cross the $50,000 mark. A high-performance NISMO model is also expected with 400hp on offer, with a base price of $53,000.

What is the Release Date of the 2023 Nissan 400Z?

Despite the Covid delays and shutdowns, production has already started at many facilities. Nissan hasn’t released an official release date yet but we can expect the roadster to hit showrooms by Spring of 2022.

2022 Nissan 400Z Buying Advice

The details of the trims on the 2023 Nissan 400Z aren’t confirmed yet, but if we assume that they’ll be like what we listed in our table, we’d recommend going for the Performance trim which provides the best of performance and comfort. For track purposes, the Nismo is gonna be THE choice all day, every day.

2022 Nissan 400Z Features


The 2023 Nissan 400Z is expected to cost nearly $45,000 and is anticipated to have two trims in its lineup - Sport and Performance. Then there is also the performance-oriented Nismo. The exact details of what all the trims will come packed with aren’t out yet but we expect it to be on par with the rivals and carry all the modern amenities that are expected of a car nowadays. We do expect the Sport to be decently equipped with a list of standard features, while the Performance variant is expected to lose some of the comforts for more performance.

The trims are said to be packed with the latest features and they certainly undercut its competition, providing massive value overall. If someone wants to add more features, there will be packages and individual options which will add to the MSRP. Further, there is also the Proto Spec version, which brings in Bronze-colored 19-inch wheels, a Unique shifter, and much more.

2022 Nissan 400Z Engine and Performance


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

The new Nissan 400Z is expected to get a twin-turbo V6 engine which will most likely be the 3.0L unit from the INFINITI Q60, instead of the gassed-up V6 from the GT-R, given the price point. The 3.0L V6 on the Nissan uses twin turbos to produce 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, which is more than that of the outgoing 370Z. The more powerful NISMO model is expected to also get a power bump up to 400hp and a torque output of 350 lb-ft. Like the previous generation models, the 400Z is expected to use a rear-wheel-drive configuration and will get the option of a 6-speed manual transmission unlike some of its rivals.

With the same engine, the INFINITI Q60 accelerates to 60 MPH in just 5.4 seconds, and reaches the quarter-mile in 13.9 seconds, while the Red Sport 400 model with 400hp on tap reaches 60 MPH in just 4.8 seconds, and shaves off half a second off the quarter-mile time. Since the 400Z will be lighter and more driver-focused, we can expect similar, or better, acceleration figures, somewhere below the 4.5-second mark.

The Z series cars have always been good handlers with a well-tuned suspension and precise steering. We can expect the 400Z to maintain similar grounds and be used every day without being too uncomfortable. As expected, the 400Z will excel on the track with a driver-focused seating position, excellent handling, and communicative steering. Enthusiasts can go the extra mile and get a manual transmission, which is a rarity nowadays, further adding to the experience. Even with the biggest engine on offer and producing the most power, the 400Z will offer a similar performance quotient to its rivals which get a smaller 2.0L engine. Both the Toyota Supra and BMW Z4 get the same powertrain and reach 60 mph in around 5 seconds.

2022 Nissan 400Z Fuel Economy


The Nissan 400Z doesn’t fare well in the fuel economy tests because of its big V6 engine, while all its rivals get smaller and more efficient 2.0L engines. We can expect EPA ratings of 19 MPG in the city, and 27 MPG on the highway, which is significantly lower than all of its rivals. However, the 400Z is expected to get a large 20-gallon fuel tank which gives it a highway range of 540 miles, the longest in its class.

Both the Toyota Supra, and the same platform-based BMW Z4 are the most efficient with an impressive EPA rating of 25 MPG in the city and 32 on the highways, for a highway range of 438 miles with a small 13.7-gallon tank. The Audi TT is slightly less efficient because of the all-wheel-drive setup and provides a combined fuel efficiency of 26 MPG.

2022 Nissan 400Z Interior


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 400Z is expected to be a huge improvement over the 370Z which was notorious for having one of the worst interiors in its class. The basic layout remains the same and the 400Z will continue to be a 2 seater. The interiors will be similar to the Z Proto concept with the quality of materials getting a huge improvement along with a modern cabin design. As expected, the 400Z will get body-hugging sports seats that offer plenty of comfort and support with spot-on ergonomics making it easy to find the right driving position.

We can expect the 400Z to get a large touchscreen infotainment system in the middle along with an equally large digital driver’s display with plenty of information and customizability. Being a driver-focussed sports car, all the controls are aimed towards the driver and are easy to reach, without taking the driver’s eyes off the road. The 400Z is also expected to get an old-fashioned handbrake beside the driver and not an electric one like modern cars.

The previous generation 370Z lacked a proper infotainment system and only received a basic AM/FM system as standard, and a 7-inch touchscreen as an option on the higher trims without essential features like Apple Carplay and Android Auto. However, with the 400Z, we can expect a huge improvement in terms of features.

All models should get a capable 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, satellite radio, Wi-Fi- hotspot, and a lot more. We can also expect a climate control system and a capable premium audio system similar to the rivals, given the price point. Some expected features include:

  • A standard touchscreen infotainment system
  • Connected car technology
  • Driver centric dials
  • Digital drivers display
  • Apple Carplay and Android Auto
  • Satellite and HD radio
  • Wi-Fi Hotspot

2022 Nissan 400Z Exterior


The new 400Z gets a completely new design that is heavily based on the Z Proto design which blends several elements of past Z car designs. We can expect the dimensions to remain the same as the 370Z with a similar length and width. Several notable design elements include the 240Z inspired teardrop headlights along with the yellow paint job, rear-end lifted from the 300ZX with modern LED elements, and several modern elements are added into the mix like LED lights, carbon fiber accents, and dual exhausts. 

The roof also gets a black finish with a silver trim running along the border. The wheels get a 5-spoke design, in line with the Z cars of past generations. The doors are similar to the 370Z with a unique door handle design, along with the overall side profile.

  • LED 300ZX inspired taillights
  • Dual exit exhaust
  • Black contrast roof
  • Teardrop headlights
  • Nissan Z Proto inspired design

2022 Nissan 400Z Safety


The Nissan 400Z is based on a heavily modified version of the FM platform which underpins several other cars from the Nissan and INFINITI lineup including the 370Z, Q60, and even the R35 GT-R. Because of its strong underpinnings, the 400Z is expected to do well in terms of safety. Both the NHTSA and IIHS are not expected to test the 400Z because of their high-performance low volume nature. The 400Z is expected to come with plenty of safety features, which were lacking in the previous generation model. Active features like automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and more are expected. Some other expected active and passive safety features include:

  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Lane departure warning
  • Lane keep assist
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Rear cross-traffic alert

2022 Nissan 400Z Competition

2023 Nissan 400Z vs 2021 Toyota Supra

The Nissan 400Z is significantly more powerful than the Toyota Supra at a lower price point. But unlike the 400Z, the Supra looks and feels more modern especially on the inside with several parts being shared with BMW. The Supra is also more practical with more cargo capacity on offer. Unlike the Supra, the 400Z can be bought with a manual transmission. Overall, the 400Z will offer a lot more value for customers looking for a fast and fun sports car and are ready to trade-off practicality. 

2023 Nissan 400Z vs 2021 Audi TT

The Audi TT is a lot more expensive compared to its rivals despite offering similar performance. The TT also gets all-wheel drive as standard which improves its acceleration. Practicality is also a strong point with seating for 4 passengers and decent cargo capacity. The 400Z, on the other hand, is said to have a better and more versatile chassis along with precise and sharp steering. To add to its credit, the 400Z’s twin-turbocharged V6 is a melodious one too!

2022 Nissan 400Z Final Verdict

The new Nissan 400Z is said to overturn the market by offering exceptional value and performance compared to competitors. The 400Z also gets a manual transmission as standard unlike most of its rivals. Pricing is also expected to be very competitive starting at just $40,000 for the base models which get a powerful V6 engine. With an improved exterior design that is a perfect blend of previous Z cars and an improved interior with plenty of features, the 400Z is will make a lot of sense for buyers looking for a fun-to-drive sports car.
