The third generation of the Nissan Cube is offered for the first time in the US market. The Nissan Cube is a small boxy vehicle with seating for five. The stylish exterior is asymmetric with a body-colored c-pillar on the driver's side and a hidden pillar on the passenger side. The interior features an undulating headliner inspired by a Jacuzzi. The side doors are traditional forward hinged, but the tailgate is side hinged opening to the left. The Cube is powered by a 1.8L four-cylinder rated at 122-bhp. Fuel economy is as high as 28 city/30 hwy on models equipped with a CVT. Although the Cube is uniquely styled, its diminutive size and pricing beg comparisons with the Honda Fit and other small imports.

What Changed:

The next generation of Nissan's Cube will be sold in the North American market starting in 2009/2010.
