About Nissan cube

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.

Changes to the 2012 Nissan Cube wagon are limited to some option shuffling.

Nissan's Intelligent Key is made standard on the SL trim, while both the S and SL gain a passenger-seat armrest.

The 2009 Nissan Cube may seem like a late comer to the square-car game, but it has actually been on sale in Japan since 1998, preceding the boxy Scion xB and Honda Element. The version America gets is the third-generation Cube, which is bigger and more refined for international consumption.

"One of the best designed vehicles I have owned, if not the best. If you are looking for low buy in cost, and low operating cost, it does not get any better than the Cube! It eats tires and windshields, but other than that it run on the cost of gas. Mine is a 6 speed manual and all I do is change the oil now and then, and it's perfectly happy giving 30 MPG all day long, with up to 35 on the highway. Power is not 427 Cobra level(I know, I have one of those too), but that is not what this car is about. It is great at what it was designed for, lots of room at a low price."

"I purchased this car to use as a driver training vehicle for teens. the vehicle gets great mileage and is a joy to drive. I'm usually in the car for 2 hours at a time and the seats are always comfortable and durable. The teens love driving it and find it easy to drive. There are no blind spots. Good vehicle to buy for a teen's first car."

Pros: "Reliable, great on gas, comfortable."

Cons: "Not enough trunk space."

"I have had this car for about 2 years and it is great! Great on gas, very reliable. I purchased this car brand new and the price was really not that bad for what you are getting. It drives great - I drive a lot and this was a very comfortable car. The inside is spacious and there is plenty of head room. The only complaint i have is there is not enough trunk space. The trunk is pretty small especially if you have small children and need room to store strollers."
