Nissan Cube 2009 Review

The new Nissan 5-passenger Cube is all set to make a grab of the market with its outlandish design and concepts.  All Cubes come with a 122-horsepower, 1.8 liter DOCH 16-valve 4-cylinder engine and the other specifications varying with the trim.

While the automatic Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) remains elective in the S trim Cubes, it is a standard option on the SL and Krom trims.  The $19,930 priced SL trim comes with the $1,600 Preferred Package, which includes the remote keyless entry, push-button start, Bluetooth, and a rear sonar system, a $230 Interior Design Package with the carpets and a shag dash, a $100 Vehicle Alarm Sensor, and a $490 Interior Illumination Package that includes a 20-color accent lighting system and stainless steel kick plates. The fully loaded 6-speed manual transmission Krom trim also has a unique body design, a leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls, a lot of interior lights, and Rockford Fosgate audio system for a cost less than $20,000.

The interiors are meant to be stylish and offer a comfortable ride. Cube comes with standard features like air-conditioning with in-cabin microfilter, power windows and door locks, and a CD system with aux jack. The SL trim enjoys an automatic headlight system and enhanced audio system. The S trim, on the other hand, presents steering wheel-mounted controls, cruise control, additional two speakers and interior lights and pockets. Even though the second-row seats do not fold forward, it has rear-hinged tailgate opening like a door and wrap-around windows.

For the safety, Nissan has brought in six standard airbags including roof-mounted bags, and with Zone Body Construction, high-strength steel side-door guard beams, and Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH). The ABS, Vehicle Dynamic Control, Traction Control System, Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), a Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Nissan’s Vehicle Security System and the Rear Sonar System give it greater gravity and control. But the limited cargo area might pose a source of worry to the owners.

It offers 28/30 mpg city/highway fuel efficiency besides being announced as a Low Emissions Vehicle.  The costs typically range around $13,990 and $19,370. While the S trim comes at $14,690, the SL at $16,790 and the Krom at $19,370, opting out of the Rear Sonar System can leave a saving of $1,600.

To conclude, compared to its competitor the Scion xB, Nissan Cube enjoys lower price by $3.5k, and better mileage than Scion xB’s 24 mpg besides a hinged door, making the option worth consideration.

Nissan’s Compact, It’s Fun, Cubed

The Nissan Cube is a “car” or as introduced by their campaign a “Mobile Device”, that is scheduled to go on sale May 5 in the United States. The phrase indicates that the vehicle is intended to market to younger drivers, and is also presented as a part of a fun life that can be customized and personalized as easily as a cell phone ring tone. The campaign also uses terms such as “search engine,” “browse,” “storage capacity,” “add friends,” and “set preference,” to describe some of the features of the Cube. The Nissan Cube, which has been said to be geared more towards younger drivers, will start at $13,990 and for many will be a first car. Erich Marx, director for marketing communications at Nissan North America said, “We think the Cube’s a perfect vehicle for this time, it offers tremendous value.”
