Here are the 2023 Nissan Z’s Fuel Economy Numbers in Canada

More efficient than before? Yes and no.

  • The 2023 Nissan Z is scheduled to go on sale this spring.

  • The Z with the manual gearbox gets a combined fuel economy rating of 11.9 L/100 km.

  • The Z with the automatic transmission gets a combined rating of 10.6 L/100 km.

The 2023 Nissan Z marks the return of the Japanese brand’s legendary sports car, with all-new and more modern looks, a sophisticated and upscale cabin and a new powertrain. And now, we got fuel economy numbers for the Canadian market.

The two-seat Z coupe is equipped with a twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 engine, which is pretty much the same VR30DDTT unit that’s already found in the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport sedan and Q60 Red Sport coupe. In all cases, it develops 400 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the latter peaking from 1,600 to 5,600 rpm in the Z. The twin-turbo engine replaces the old, naturally aspirated 3.7L V6 that belted out 332 horsepower and 270 pound-feet in the 370Z, although the NISMO edition boasted 350 horses and 276 pound-feet of twist.

In both Sport and Performance trim levels of the 2023 Nissan Z, the 3.0L engine is connected to a six-speed manual transmission as standard, while a new nine-speed automatic with paddle shifters and downshift rev matching is optional.

Equipped with three pedals, the Z boasts city/highway/combined fuel economy ratings of 13.4/10.0/11.9 L/100 km, while the automatic-equipped coupe’s numbers are 12.3/8.6/10.6 L/100 km. Premium fuel is obviously required.

In comparison, the outgoing 370Z with the manual gearbox had city/highway/combined ratings of 13.3/9.3/11.5 L/100 km, and 12.6/9.3/11.1 L/100 km with the seven-speed automatic. So the new Z is actually less efficient for buyers who prefer to row their own gears, and slightly more efficient for those who opt for the slushbox.

The 2022 Chevrolet Camaro with its 335-horsepower 3.6L V6 engine consumes at a combined rate of 12.0 L/100 km with its six-speed manual, and 10.7 L/100 km with its 10-speed automatic. The 2022 Ford Mustang no longer offers a V6 engine, but its turbo 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder with the High Performance package generates 330 horsepower, and consumes at a combined rate of 10.5 L/100 km with its six-speed manual and 10.3 L/100 km with its 10-speed automatic.

Pricing for the 2023 Nissan Z coupe isn’t available yet, but should soon be announced as the car is scheduled to go on sale this spring.
