Nissan Cube Overview

Is the 2009 Nissan Cube a new kind of utility vehicle, a city-friendly microvan, or an especially tall compact wagon? It's tough to say; the quirky new Nissan Cube fits into several existing categories but ends up being the odd one out—in a positive sense.

Scion models, Nissan offers more than 40 dealer-installed Nissan Cube Accessories to customize the 2009 Cube. They're not all appearance-related; the list includes several cargo-organizing options, and a Garmin nav system. The 2009 Cube comes with all the safety features that a shopper gets on most crossover SUVs costing twice as much. Visibility is surprisingly good through the large side mirrors. Nissan Cube lacks a good upward visibility from the driver's seat.
