2010 Nissan Cube

efficiency raised to the third


Two of the Nissan Cube have sold in Japan since and now it’s our turn to get in on the fun with third-gen car, which at the L.A. auto show. we’re glad that the is headed for Americawe’ve been jonesing since we drove the Cube but now that it’s we’re a little disappointed in the it’s not as pleasing to our eyes as the Japan-only version.

Sure, all of the funky features are the wraparound right-rear window; the sliding second-row seat; and the rear door that to a cavernous interiorbut something has lost. The beveled treatment the windows has been exaggerated to levels, and the slab-sided looks are now by puffed-up fender flares and front and rear bumpers. The has been altered almost to the where it’s no longer, cubic.

Objectively, the Cube has grown up in its generation, increasing in every except height, with the increase being nearly 10 added to its length. Wheelbase by nearly 5 inches over the Cube.

Looks aside, we think the Cube is a clever that should win many converts. Like its predecessor, the new is based on Nissan’s B platform, also underpins the Versa and sedan.

With a claimed starting of “around $14,000,” the Cube be a roomier alternative to a five-door for only about a thousand more. As an added bonus, the takes up less space on the since it’s almost 20 shorter than the Versa and about a foot shorter a Versa hatch.

Along with its platform, the also shares the Versa’s four-cylinder engine, which 122 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. numbers represent welcome over the Japanese-spec car we tested, alleviating our biggest Cube Transmissions will also be to Versa buyers, with a manual standard on Cube 1.8 and models, while a CVT is an option on two and standard on the 1.8SL trim.

CVT-equipped cars are expected to more than 30 mpg on the highway. safety items include six airbags, and traction and stability Optional equipment is all of the electronic keyless start, Bluetooth, a Fosgate six-speaker audio with subwoofer, XM satellite iPod connectivity, and a backup system are among the add-ons.

Scion does with its Nissan will offer a of accessories for the Cube.

So, even though the Cube may no be as cubey as we like, it’s a quirky and efficient, quintessentially package that will win buyers from Scion’s xB and Element. U.S. sales begin in the spring of 2009.
