Join guest host Elizabeth Kreft as she reviews the 2010 Nissan Cube. While the Cube’s design may not appeal to all, it obviously is doing something right as it enters its second year stateside. In Elizabeth’s video review, you’ll hear about it all, from the ripple theme design to how the ’10 Cube handles in the urban, DC environment.
We tested the 1.8L 4-cylinder model with the Xtronic CVT that produces 122 horsepower and 127 lb-ft of torque. While the power may be lacking, the fuel economy makes up for it with averages of 27 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. To add to the appeal of the person on the move or the family who doesn’t want to splurge on a luxury SUV, the 60/40 split of the rear seats and recessed back hatch floor space make the Cube a great vehicle for those who have kids, groceries, sporting goods and/or backpacks to stuff into one vehicle.
For the functionality, fuel economy, and a price tag of $20,170 including three package upgrades, we’re sure the Nissan Cube will continue to gain fans in the States.
