About Nissan Cube
It’s difficult to pin the 2014 Nissan Cube down to a single segment, especially when new segments enter the market each year. It is neither a wagon nor a crossover, but…nearly? It’s also not exactly a van. It is unmistakably odd at its essence, but within those eccentric confines, it is unmatched in terms of aesthetic and packaging.
While the devil is in the details–or, in this case, the charm–and while the Cube could just as easily be mistaken for a washer or refrigerator on wheels, we’d encourage you to take a closer look at the asymmetry of the windows, the beveled window frames, and flared sheet metal, which reveal something far more complex. Combine all of this with Cube’s low-hanging aerodynamic work and you have a car with a little more style than the Scion xB ever developed. Inside, the Cube’s rippling ceiling, shag dash item, and “Casual Lounge” concept may appear overdone. However, it is functional and enjoyable.
The Cube’s most glaring flaw is its driving dynamics. Despite its low center of gravity and car-based basis, it lacks the sportiness one might expect–in fact, it lacks any personality at all. The front wheels are driven by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine producing 122 horsepower. The Cube can accelerate quickly enough when equipped with either the six-speed manual transmission or the continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT), but it is not a sports car or the type of vehicle you would blast into curves.
On the plus side, the Cube’s ride comfort rivals that of some of the more luxurious sedans and SUVs in the economic segment. What there is — and this is probably unsurprising — is a significant amount of wind noise at highway speeds. Otherwise, the Cube’s interior materials betray its sub-$20,000 price tag, although the aesthetic details will likely distract you for a time.
While the Cube’s seating capacity is one of its assets, cargo room may leave you wanting more. The 2014 Nissan Cube has more passenger capacity than the exterior suggests, but if you require mobility and sometimes need to optimize space for larger objects, you can do much better. The front seats are far more comfortable than those in the Versa or Sentra—and, of course, a little higher—as long as you’re not cornering aggressively, as there is no considerable side bolstering. The rear seat comfortably accommodates two adults (perhaps three if crammed in), and it glides back and forth and reclines—though not completely. Where you run into difficulty is when transporting heavier items, as the seatback does not just fold forward or flat.
And the Cube is a fantastic value for money—especially when you consider the benefit of having something truly unique and quirky while also being well-equipped. Prices are slightly higher for 2014, though, as the base model has been discontinued, leaving only the S and SL trims available—and if you want a manual transmission, you’re stuck with the S, as the top SL is only available with a CVT. The S comes equipped with a number of standard features, but the SL adds automatic temperature control, alloy wheels, an Intelligent Key system, Bluetooth connectivity, and an improved sound system with iPod connectivity.
