The 370Z has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Vantage doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

Both the 370Z and the Vantage have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control and electronic stability systems to prevent skidding.

Nissan’s powertrain warranty covers the 370Z 2 years longer than Aston Martin covers the Vantage. Any repair needed on the engine, transmission, axles, joints or driveshafts is fully covered for 5 years or 60,000 miles. Coverage on the Vantage ends after only 3 years.

There are almost 90 times as many Nissan dealers as there are Aston Martin dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the 370Z’s warranty.

The 370Z has vehicle speed sensitive variable-assist power steering, for low-effort parking, better control at highway speeds and during hard cornering, and a better feel of the road. The Vantage doesn’t offer variable-assist power steering.

The 370Z Coupe performs Car and Driver’s emergency lane change maneuver 3 MPH faster than the Vantage Coupe (67.1 vs. 64.1 MPH).

The Nissan 370Z may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 300 to 900 pounds less than the Aston Martin Vantage.

The 370Z is 5.3 inches shorter than the Vantage, making the 370Z easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

To almost totally eliminate engine vibration in the passenger area, the 370Z has a liquid-filled front engine mount. The liquid helps further dampen engine harshness. The Vantage uses conventional solid rubber engine mounts.

The 370Z’s standard power windows have a locking feature to keep children from operating them. Aston Martin does not offer a locking feature on the Vantage’s power windows.

If the windows are left down on the 370Z the driver can raise them all using the key in the outside lock cylinder. On a hot day the driver can lower the windows from outside the vehicle using the key in the outside lock cylinder or the keyless remote. The driver of the Vantage can only operate the windows from inside the vehicle, with the ignition on.

The Intelligent Key standard on the 370Z allows you to unlock the driver’s door, trunk and start the engine all without removing a key from pocket or purse. This eliminates searching for keys before loading groceries, getting in the vehicle in bad weather or making a hurried start to your trip. The Aston Martin Vantage doesn’t offer an advanced key system.

The 370Z Touring Roadster’s standard air conditioned front seats cool the driver and front passenger and help take the sting out of hot leather in Summer. The Vantage doesn’t offer air conditioned front seats.
