KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 12/27/2013

Although the EPA classifies it as a compact, we're not so sure the 2014 Nissan Cube is so easily pigeonholed. Its boxy shape and versatile interior mimic a small SUV, while its low ground clearance and car-like driving experience tell us the Cube is more like a mini station wagon. One thing is for sure, the Cube's radical styling puts it in a class all its own. From its asymmetrical rear window to its swing-open rear door, the Cube aches to be different. Buyers young and old will love the Cube's sub-$20K starting price, its long list of cool features, and its numerous accessories.

You'll Like This Car If...

If funky shapes and bold colors appeal to you, the 2014 Nissan Cube is right up your alley. Nissan excels at loading up its cars with a plethora of features for very little money, and the Cube is no exception.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you like power on demand, the 2014 Nissan Cube isn't going to excite you. There are faster and better handling modes of transportation than the Cube, such as the VW GTI, Nissan Juke or the Mini Cooper Clubman.

What's New for 2014

Other than a new color (Caspian Blue), there are no major changes to the 2014 Nissan Cube.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The Cube's boxy body, small tires and anemic engine make no pretense of sporting intentions. But, despite its relative lack of performance potential, the Cube actually scoots about with little drama. Even on twisting back roads, the Cube displays competent road manners, although the 1.8-liter engine struggles somewhat when the road ahead angles upward. The continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is actually a better choice in such situations, providing maximum torque and fuel economy. CVTs take some getting used to, however, because they feel like you have just one gear instead of several. Once up to speed, engine drone is quite noticeable inside the cabin, as is wind noise around the pillars and side glass. Around town, the story is a happier one, as the Cube exhibits excellent maneuverability, a tight turning radius, and is a snap to parallel park.

Favorite Features

From its "pebble dropped in water ripple effect" headliner to its somewhat cheesy shag carpet dash mat, the Nissan Cube's interior is both clever and highly functional. That shag dash mat, for example, keeps sunglasses and cell phones from sliding off the dash better than anything we've experience to date.

Rear-seat passenger comfort is often lacking in compact cars, but the Cube's sliding and reclining rear seats banish the notion of a cramped rear seat (and cranky rear-seat passengers). Move the seats forward, and the cargo area expands to hold even more stuff.
