Nissan Z Named Best Sport Coupe in 2023 MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards  

In the MotorWeek Drivers' Choice Awards, the 2023 Nissan Z has been recognized as the Best Sport Coupe, standing out from other exceptional vehicles across diverse categories. Let's delve into the standout features that make the Nissan Z a remarkable performer in its class.


With its impressive performance credentials, the Nissan Z takes the lead. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood produces up to 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes paired with either a six-speed manual transmission or a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters, providing drivers with a customizable driving experience.


The Nissan Z boasts a modern and sleek exterior, with a low-slung profile and a long hood that accentuates the car's power and performance potential. The front fascia features LED headlights and a large grille, while the rear has a quad-exhaust setup, emphasizing the car's sporty character.


The Nissan Z's interior is equally impressive, with comfortable and supportive seats and ample bolstering for spirited driving. The dashboard features a digital instrument cluster and a large touchscreen display that provides easy access to the car's infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The affordability of the Nissan Z is one of its most noteworthy aspects. Despite its impressive performance and premium features, the car comes at a relatively modest price point, making it accessible to many drivers.


The Nissan Z offers several advanced safety features that make it a well-rounded sports coupe, including adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.

Adaptive cruise control allows the driver to set a speed and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front. The system can automatically adjust the speed to keep the desired distance from the car in front. Automatic emergency braking uses sensors to detect the presence of other vehicles or pedestrians in the car's path. If a potential collision is detected, the system automatically applies the brakes to avoid or mitigate the impact.

Lane departure warning uses cameras to monitor the car's position on the road, alerting the driver to take corrective action if the vehicle begins to drift out of its lane.

The Nissan Z also offers several driving modes, including Normal, Sport, and Track, each providing a different level of responsiveness and engagement.
