Nissan has just released first official shots of its upcoming Z370 coupe that will be replacing aging, but still good looking Z350 model. The Z370 will slot in below a super striking GT-R coupe and will be officially released at the upcoming L.A. Auto Show. I see the 370Z as a direct challenge for Hyundai Genesis Coupe, so lets make a quick comparisson between both of them based on exterior, interior design and some technical data. The 370Z coupe will be powered by 3,7L V6, which has also been installed in Infiniti G37 and will generate between 300 and 330 horsepower. That throws the 370Z into the same league as Genesis Coupe, whose 3,8L V6 Lambda RS unit packs 310hp. Both will be available with six speed manual or automatic transmissions. What I would like to hear from you is, whats your opinion on Z370 after you have seen these pictures. How would you compare it to the Genesis Coupe in terms of design? Which one looks better to you? In the past few years, Nissan has gatherd lots of experiences with 350 coupe, while Genesis Coupe has been Hyundais first foray into the RWD coupe market. Do you think experience mean better sports car? Below, I have enclosed images of both cars, so you can compare them side by side. So, let us know what you think…

370z has got to be the uglyest thing ive ever seen. I think daewoos goes better exterior style than that pos. Interior is pretty nice tho, hope the build quality of the interior of the 370 is better than the 350. As for the genesis those koreans actually did something right for once. Good engine, rwd, 2 door. Body could use some work tho.

That is not the official car. There is a more up to date one and it looks a lot better.

Not a fan of the 350z usually. There is a Half Matte Black 350z that I know of and it looks fucking awesome.

But between the 2 I'd say 370z, Hyundais always look cheap to me.

370z : A sad warthog. it looks unhappy that its tusks are pearly yellow instead of pearly white. Engine power is somewhat average, and it's nothing more to me than a redesigned Z. IMO, it'll fail more severely than Honda's 2008 S2000 Club Racer edition.

Genesis: So far it looks very promising, i'm just concerned about their old track history. All of their other cars just recently released were just excessively-styled garbage. I will admit though that this definitely has me giving it a second glance.

Reminds me of the Ford FG series...just why?

I can't get over how cheap those Hyundais look.

I'll take a G37 over the two. (The Genesis coupe's exterior syling is based off the G37 and so is the 370Z's engine.. best of both worlds? )

Anyway, between the two..

I was never a big fan of the 350Z. It was kinda like a on-off, love-hate type of relationship. The 370Z doesn't look that great either, especially the Maxima-inspired head/tail lights, but the more I see the car the more it kinda just seems to grow on me... kinda like how the 08 STI's and EVO X's did.

As for the Genesis coupe, I agree with what RossoCorsa said. It does look promising and Hyundai seems to be making a better name for themselves. At first glance, I was somewhat skeptical about it, seeing as how I'm not really a fan of Hyundais, but the exterior styling and rwd capability was what kept me coming back for more.

I suppose only time will tell which of the two cars will "outclass" the other.
BTW, here's a link (http://jalopnik.com/5084319/2009-nissan-370z-design-dissected) that shows the differences and similiarities between the 350Z and 370Z's interior/exterior.

first of all...350s are heavy and id switch their vq35dett into a rb26....anyways that 370z is the wrong pic >.> i know where you got that from and its wrong haha.....the actual pic has a rear end similar to the 350 cuz that one is just like a goddam solstice or watever. and for the genesis, love it, drove it, would buy it. genesis is fast ass car with rolls royce speakers...

I'd say the 370z fails at the exterior.. but the interior looks okay...
