Unveiling the All-New Nissan Z®

Relive the reveal

If you weren’t able to see the all-new 2023 Nissan Z make its debut in the original live broadcast, you can catch it right here. Watch now to experience the next-generation Z, and discover the exciting new features.


Forever ahead of the curve

The all-new 2023 Z stays true to its performance roots, with a powerful 6-cylinder under the hood. A front midship, rear-wheel-drive design places the engine farther back in the chassis for enhanced balance, while a new suspension makes you feel hard-wired to the road. It’s an authentic sports car in the purest sense of the term. [[510]]

400 horsepower at 6,400 rpm

At the heart of the Z is a 3.0-litre V6 twin-turbocharged 24-valve engine. Thanks to the aluminum-alloy block and heads, it's nice and light. Plus, with a water-cooled intercooler, it stays at the right temperature.

Mechanical limited-slip differential

A newly available mechanical limited-slip differential helps distribute power to the driven wheel with the best grip, helping you power out of corners.

Launch control

For the first time on any Nissan Z, an available launch control helps eliminate wheel spin and hop. By holding the engine at a pre-set rpm and modulating power as you pull away, it delivers the fastest, most consistent acceleration every time. [[446]]

2023 Nissan Z Sports car 6-speed Manual Gear transmission

6-speed manual transmission

It’s not a sports car without a manual transmission. The new first- and second-gear synchros are designed to help handle the Z's powerful twin-turbo engine. Enhancing the connection, the shift mechanism has been redesigned for a more direct response you can really feel.

9-speed automatic transmission

Meet the one transmission that can tempt manual drivers. The Z features a new 9-speed automatic with shift-by-wire technology activated by a unique palm-shaped controller. For added thrills, you can employ the available steering wheel paddle shifters borrowed from the Nissan GT-R®.

Suspension and steering

To make sure it handles like a Z, this year's model features new mono tube shocks, enhanced front geometry and rear suspension tuning. Electric power steering also makes an appearance for the first time ever on a Z. That means near-infinite tuning for inspired control and precision. [[510]]

Body rigidity

The stiffer the chassis, the better the suspension can work. To help get the maximum out of the Z’s suspension, torsional rigidity has increased over 10%.

Sport brakes

Tuned to give braking with excellent feel and stopping power, available sport brakes feature 14-inch front rotors with 4-piston calipers. [[511]]

Interior Design

Always in your element

Crafted to bring out your best performance, the Z's interior holds you firmly in place through every curve, with room to move. Advanced technology serves up everything you need to know and nothing you don’t, with classic design that never forgets what a true sports car must be.

Redesigned cockpit

Focused on the driver, the all-new Z keeps you in the loop with a new digital gauge cluster and an available 8-inch centre touchscreen display. It also offers an optional Wi-Fi hotspot and remote access. [[56]] [[111]]

New performance seats

The Z features a new seat design that offers impressive lateral support, along with anti-slip material and a slide-reducing centre pad in the lower seat cushion. Knee bolsters work with the performance seats to help keep the driver in place.

GT-R®-inspired steering wheel

Point to the future with a nod to our history. The leather-wrapped rim is thicker than the current GT-R, while the unique groove at the top of the wheel was inspired by the legendary GT-R R32. 

Race car driver-designed gauges

Tap into the Z's Sport Mode screen, one of three selectable screens on the digital dashboard. It was designed with input from Tsugio Matsuda, a racer for NISMO® who competes in Japan's Super GT racing series.

Legendary triple-pod cluster

Legacy meets next-wave design. In the all-new 2023 Z, you get key information at a glance, including turbo boost, turbine speed and voltage via the enhanced triple pod cluster.

Exterior Design

Recognition at high speed

The all-new Nissan Z serves up classic sports car proportions of a long hood and a short rear deck. Combined with iconic Z styling elements, it creates a design that is completely modern, yet immediately identifiable as a Nissan Z.

Safety & Driver Assist

Confidence to match the capability

Advanced driver assist and safety technology help take the daily workload off the driver, so you can concentrate on what matters most – the pure enjoyment of every drive.

Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and distance from the car ahead, alerting you if you need to slow down. It can also automatically engage the brakes to help avoid a frontal collision or lessen the severity of an impact. And when it detects a pedestrian in the crosswalk, it can stop you in your tracks. [[243]]

Intelligent Forward Collision Warning

What’s up ahead? Intelligent Forward Collision Warning keeps an eye on the two cars in front of you. It detects when one suddenly decelerates, warning you to slow down, so you can avoid a collision. [[23]]

Blind Spot Warning

Avoid hazards on the highway. Blind Spot Warning gives you a heads up when it detects a vehicle hiding in your blind spot, so you can steer clear of danger. [[24]]

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Manoeuvre confidently in any parking lot or driveway. When you’re backing out of a space, Rear Cross Traffic Alert watches around the rear of your Z, warning you about cars it detects creeping up from either side. [[289]]

Lane Departure Warning

Drive between the lines. Lane Departure Warning helps make sure you change lanes only when you mean to. If the system detects that you’re drifting over without signalling, a gentle buzz on the steering wheel can let you know. [[329]]

High Beam Assist

High Beam Assist can automatically deactivate your high beams if it detects an oncoming vehicle. After the other driver has passed, the system can reactivate the high beams, so you don't have to feel around for the switch.
