Nissan Cube Overview

The tall and boxy Cube has an enormous amount of interior space for a small car and it's very easy to access. Acceleration is slow from the 122-hp, 1.8-liter four-cylinder. We got 28 mpg with the continuously variable transmission. The ride is comfortable, but handling is rather clumsy due to pronounced body roll and vague steering. Wind and road noise are intrusive. Stopping distances are long. Fit and finish is on the cheap side. Overall, the Cube trails its direct competitors, such as the Scion xB and Kia Soul.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
