Whether high-performance coupe, Nissan 370Z, is retiring? Is it possible that the next model with a “Z” label, it will be a crossover? These are questions that, still, there are no official response. The rumors say that the 2018 Nissan Z Crossover replace the hitherto 370Z sports coupe. The reason for this move is obvious. The truth is that everyone turned to high-performance coupe model. How many of them will buy such a car? While these cars leave you breathless, the biggest selling have recorded crossover and SUV models. Will the Nissan indeed decide to make this move, it remains to be seen.
As corroboration of rumors about the future “Z” crossover model lies in the Nissan Gripz concept. This model was introduced in 2015, and has garnered excellent reviews, and ratings. It is almost certain that this model end up in mass production. Just because of this, many believe that it will be based on it since 2018 Nissan Z Crossover. Although the replacement of a sports coupe, the new crossover model with hybrid drive, is a bit unreal, rumors say that it will just happen. According to many Nissan 370Z is ready to retire.

2018 Nissan Z Crossover Design
The desire of the company to take the path of progress and modernization, and to offer vehicles with dynamic performance, just add weight to current rumors. If the future “Z” model really become a crossover, it is logical to be based on the concept Gripz. In this way, a large part of the way towards dynamic performance is already passed.
So far, none of the previous Nissan Z model, had no resemblance to the Nissan Gripz concept. This concept has dimensions of 4,100/1,890/1,500 mm (l/w/h), with a wheelbase of 2,305 mm. The concept is adorned with an exceptional modern design. However, one should not expect all the design elements of the concept, with the production version of the vehicle. Likewise, the rear seats will certainly offer a place for three passengers. Recall, the concept is presented with four, physically separate seats. Certainly, it is expected that the future “Z” model brings the distinctive style of the past, which will make him popular and desirable in the future.
What would be revolutionary, for Z model, is the hybrid powertrain. However, if the 2018 Nissan Z become a crossover based on Gripz concept, it could be lunched by hybrid drivetrain. The hybrid circuit could be taken from the Nissan Leaf model. It will be consisted of combined petrol engine with 80 kW electric motor. In comparison, the previous Nissan 370Z owns a 3.7-liter V6 engine with 332 horsepower. There is another option when it comes to drive this vehicle. This is downsizing to Z model four-cylinder petrol engine.
