Nissan as intriduce at the Montreal Auto Show the 2009 Cube. The other new addition to the Canadian Nissan line-up is the new 2009 Nissan 370Z, the sixth generation model of the iconic Z sports car. The new 370Z is lighter, more powerful than ever before and offers enhanced handling, quality and style. With the world's first SynchroRev Match system, the 6-speed manual model provides the thrill of perfectly matched downshifts to drivers of all abilities. At $39,998 this "everyday sports car" is value-priced, and sure to turn many heads on dealership lots later this month.
"The new 370Z hits the sports car sweet spot of performance, design and value," said Forsyth. "We believe Z is one of the greatest performance values in the world."
The 370Z uses the same VQ37VHR powerplant found in the Infiniti G37 — a V6 displacing 3.7-liter — delivering 332 horsepower. Those 332 horses will be sent to the 370Z’s rear wheels via either a seven-speed automatic or a six-speed manual gearbox. Of note, the six-speed 370Z will be the first vehicle to offer a synchronized downshift rev matching system with a manual transmission.
Nissan also announced its vehicle brand sales for the Quebec region were 22.2 per cent higher in 2008 than the previous year and its share of the Quebec market is up over 1 per cent to over 6 per cent. Nationally Nissan brand sales were up 7.5 per cent in 2008.
