Another generation of Nissan’s iconic sports car is ready to be presented to the world. It is a well-known 2016 Nissan Z which will be absolutely amazing.
Exterior design of 2016 Nissan Z
2016 Nissan Z will represent the seventh generation of this model. Therefore, we are hoping to see some changes and improvements when we compare it to the current model. Perhaps, we expected it to see it with much improved weight reduction, since it is a new generation model. However, it is not the case with new Nissan. It will be only slightly lighter than its predecessor because of the usage of aluminum and other lighter materials. It will ride on the same platform as the Infiniti Q50. Speaking of the exterior design, it will undergo some minor changes. On the front end, we will notice its well-known headlamps in a shape of boomerang. They will be equipped with LED daytime running lights. The whole body will have bolder lines. It will look sporty and modern. Beside it attractive design, it will be excellent to handle. It will show great ride quality and driving dynamics.
Design of interior and technology
When it comes to interior design of 2016 Nissan Z, it will be improved in many segments. We can expect high quality materials and new features. It will get leather upholstery. The seats will be comfortable and will fit any body type. On the higher trim levels, they will be adjustable and ventilated. The cabin will be quieter than before because of the new noise-canceling system than Nissan has introduced. This should solve, or at least improve wind and engine noise which has generally been its problem. As for the equipments, we can expect many new features. Some of them are keyless entry, Bluetooth, new AM/FM/CD stereo system etc. Also, it will be equipped with safety system such as: stability and traction control, anti-lock brakes, front and side airbags and so on.
