Nissan Cube vs. Other Subcompact Cars

From an appearance standpoint, the Nissan Cube is truly in a class of its own. However, there are a few other unique, wagon-style subcompact vehicles that are comparable. How does the Cube stack up against them?

Nissan Cube vs. Kia Soul

The Kia Soul has a similar boxy and fun body style. The 2014 Soul is available in three trim levels, so it offers an additional trim package over the Cube. Its standard 1.6L engine isn’t quite as powerful, however, when compared to the 1.8L four-cylinder at 122 horsepower that the 2014 Cube has to offer. The 2014 Soul does offer more passenger and cargo space at 19 cubic feet with rear row intact and 61 cubic feet with rear row folded down. The 2014 Cube offers 11.4 cubic feet and 58 cubic feet, respectively. From a fuel economy standpoint, the 2014 Soul gets an EPA-estimated 28 mpg combined in the base S trim with a 1.8L engine.1

Nissan Cube vs. Honda Element

The Honda Element ceased production following the 2011 model year, but its body styling and overall features are quite similar to that of the Nissan Cube. Available in LX and EX trims, the 2011 Element comes standard with such features as power accessories, keyless entry, and completely removable rear seats for added cargo space. The 2011 Element boasts a 2.4L, four-cylinder engine at 166 horsepower that is more powerful than the 2014 Cube's base 1.8L engine—and with the ability to completely remove the rear row of seats, the 2011 Element offers an impressive 75 cubic feet of maximum storage space. The 2011 Element with its base 2.4L engine gets an EPA-estimated 22 mpg combined.1

Nissan Cube vs. Scion XB

The quirky Scion XB wagon is another popular subcompact that competes with the Nissan Cube; like the Cube, the 2014 XB is offered in two trim configurations, with similar standard features including power accessories and a six-speaker sound system. Space-wise, the XB offers more cargo space—up to 70 cubic feet with rear seats folded down. The 2014 XB base trim with a 2.4L engine gets an EPA-estimated 24 mpg combined.1

Great car!

- Marissa Miller, 2010 Nissan Cube

Sweet Ride...!

I had not planned on actually buying a car that day, but once I drove the Cube I was hooked. The seats are extremely comfortable, as well as the cabin. So much head and leg room! I can fit 5 people, or I can fold down the back seats and fit all my training supplies with room to spare. I have had several complete strangers inquire as to what kind of car it is and tell me it is so sharp looking...I agree! I average 33-38 mpg, which is great, but I have to fill up quite often due to the smaller tank. During the summer time I don't have a problem, but come winter I might not be so willing, but it's worth it! Also, while driving with the windows open the back seatbelts vibrate in the wind, bugs on the windshield seem more problemsome since the windshield is so flat, and the windshield wipers don't clear or clean the window very well at all. Oh well... I love my Cube and would buy another one in a heartbeat!

Nissan Cube Is Great

I recently bought a 2010 Nissan Cube and I love it. I have a young child that is in a car seat and wanted a vehicle that I did not have to bend over to put him in the car seat and I also wanted to avoid the low gas mileage of some of the SUV's. So..the cube worked out great. It has plenty of leg room and is overall a very roomy car. It does not have much of a trunk but it does have enough room to take on a trip if I just have one suitcase and a couple of bags. This is not our vehilce we would use for a big trip so I was not worried to much about the trunk space. It is perfect for getting around town, getting groceries and taking the baby. It is a four cylinder car and so it does not have great pick up but it is adequate. Another thing I like is that it was satelitte ready and has all kinds of cup holders and places to put gadgets. It also gets great gas mileage! The back seats fold down if you wanted more room and you can seat three people in the back row but if they are big adults I would say you could seat just two. Overall it is a fun car with great gas mileage and I don't have to break my back putting the baby in and out of the car seat.
