It surely is a different kind of vehicle, and that might not sit well with everyone, but for those who do like the 2010 Nissan Cube, standing apart from the crowd is probably a large part of the appeal.
The Cube is dominated by its large asymmetrical windows. It's one of many unusual features that customers in the U.S. have been introduced to; the Cube has been on sale in Nissan's home market of Japan for more than 10 years.
Count among its competitors the Scion xB, Honda Element and Kia Soul.
This category has found some success because it offers the versatility of an SUV but with much better gas mileage, much easier maneuverability and a much lower sticker price.
The Cube comes with a 60/40 fold-flat, three-position sliding rear seat.
Plus the Cube is a very tall vehicle, which provides great headroom and adds to the feeling of roominess.
