Unknowingly to the American general public, the Cube was the original small boxy car, as it was introduced in 1998, quite contrary to the Scion xB ad,"The Original." It is quite the cute little rounded box, with a really peppy 4-Cylinder, an optional 5-speed manual, and a really really spacious interior for it's size. It comes in many different-from-usual colors, such as Moss Green, Caribbean Blue, and Bitter Chocolate. The wrap-around rear window is actually not really that much of a help in terms of vision, though. It can come with a Bose stereo system with two tweeters, six speakers, and a sub woofer. The little things in the interior are cool, too: The little bungees on the doors to hold things on, the cup holder in front of the A/C vent, the interior lighting, the light-up kick plates that say Cube, the ripple-shaped theme, the perfectly shaped seats, the aestheticness of everything, etc....
To sum it all up, It's the best (small) car ever.
Joe: I got a Nissan Cube, It rocks!
Billy Bob: nuh uhh, the Scion xB is so much cooler, duhhhhhh......
Joe: Mine came first, and it is so much faster!
Billy Bob: ....... ok.
A Nissan that was sold in Japan for over ten years that was recently brought over to the US in May 2009 in its 3rd Generation. It's a box-styled car that looks similar to the 1st generation Scion XB, and competes in sales with the Kia Soul, XB, and Honda Element. The cube is known by its signature look with the wraparound rear window and the ripple effect of the spacious inside. Its one of the coolest box cars for 18-25 year olds out there, way better than the Soul!
Shea: Did you see that weird looking boxy car that just passed? It looks like it came straight out of a Dr. Seuss cartoon.
Kelly: Yeah, that's the new Nissan Cube! I really want one!
Shea: Ew, its ugly!
Nissan's successful attempt at designing a vehicle uglier than the Scion XB
When I see a Nissan Cube, I get an urge to smash the wrap-around rear window so that the owner will have to go to the dealership and pay $3000 to get it replaced.
