The 370Z is 1 foot, 4.5 inches shorter than the A5, making the 370Z easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

The 370Z Sport/Sport Touring/NISMO/50th Anniversary Edition uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The A5 doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.
