2011 Nissan 370Z Touring Review on Bullz-Eye.com

Bullz-Eye.com staff breaks down the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring!

There aren’t too many true sports cars on the road today, but from our first impressions to riveting drive time behind the wheel of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring, this car delivers for sports car enthusiasts. Our test model sported a pearl white exterior that added a soft touch to the otherwise untamed sports machine waiting for you to hit the push-button start so the games could begin!

Exterior
The styling of the 2011 Nissan 370Z is unmistakable on the road, and with the aggressive design this pure sports car makes statements whether she is on the road or sitting idle. The low stance with the history of the Z car abound, we get a peak at the past but a clear vision of the future in the design of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring. Our test model was the upscale Touring edition and came equipped with 19 inch RAYS forged wheels that developed a following of their own while we drove the 370Z. Also included were front chin and rear spoilers, Bi functional Xenon headlights, power remote control door mirrors, heated outside mirrors, fender mounted Z emblem side markers, aluminum hood, hatch lid and UV shielded glass. According to Nissan, “The 370Z’s taut exterior design incorporates intentional 240Z styling cues, a sleek aerodynamic shape, a ‘dynamic motion’ feel with a dramatic cantilevered roof and a ‘low visual gravity.’ The sleek silhouette is defined by its upswept quarter window design that is echoed by the dynamic upward curvature in the lower rocker panel and the sense of the taut sheet metal molding itself around the wheels and frame.” We feel the exterior of the 2011 Nissan 370Z Touring rivals some of the ultra expensive sports cars and gets as much or even more attention than rivals while on the streets.

2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet First Drive

In their latest car review, the team at Bullz-Eye.com takes a look at the 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet First Drive. Take a look at the review and let us know what you think about this ride!

After arriving in San Diego this past weekend, Bullz-Eye finally had the chance to drive the all new 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet and luckily, the weather was just about perfect. Going into the drive I really didn’t know what to expect. As sharp as the Murano Cabriolet looks, I had to keep reminding myself that this is a crossover and not a sport coupe. Nissan is coming off a 2010 where they saw market share increase .04% and overall sales jump 18%. Obviously the company wants to keep the momentum going into 2011. (FYI: Nissan North America sales were up a whopping 31% in February 2011.)

We met with Nissan prior to the drive on Saturday and learned that Nissan continues to look for innovations. I would say a crossover convertible qualifies as innovation and a new segment with its crossover functionality and open air access. Nissan described the 2011 Nissan Murano Crossover Cabriolet as a “convertible without compromise.” The lack of a B pillar, higher utility and more space than anything on the market really set the Murano apart.

After seeing the Murano up close when I first arrived and learning more about the impressive model, I was ready to get behind the wheel. We took off from L’Auberge Del Mar with the temperature in the mid 60’s and a line of Muranos ready to get at it. I first noticed how sharp the low profile soft top looks on the Murano Cabriolet, highlighting its sleek silhouette. The taillights are reminiscent of the iconic Nissan 370Z and Nissan Maxima. The soft top opened and tucked away with the press of a button and took less than 25 seconds, which was very impressive. Once the top was down, everything in the interior jumped out at me – I couldn’t help but notice the smooth edges in the cabin and the wraparound feel that reminded me of a luxury yacht. The plush double-stitched leather seating comes standard and the unique tuned wood grain really dresses things up. The flashy but classy 20 inch split spoke titanium finish aluminum alloy wheels also stood out. Nissan apparently paid very close attention to detail when designing and building the Murano Cabriolet, as evidenced by the unique dual pop up roll bars for rear passengers. The roll bars are not only a very smart safety feature but look really cool and add another sporty flavor to the vehicle.
