For 2013, the Nissan Cube is only offered in S and SL trims, with the base model dropped from the lineup. One new exterior color, Sapphire Slate, has been added. Otherwise the Cube is carried over unchanged.
Stylish, quirky look inside and out; passenger-friendly interior; very compact and easy to park; smooth ride; a lot of features for a low price; in-town fuel-efficiency
Urban dwellers who have limited parking space and want something more stylish than the typical small car will probably find a lot to love in the Cube. There's nothing quite like it on the market, and its asymmetrical design, side-opening hatch, sofa-like rear seat, and water-ripple interior designs all make it quirky and endearing. The Cube drives well in the city and rides comfortably, with a low sticker price and great fuel economy to boot.
