Our initial impression upon seeing the 2014 Nissan Cube was sort of confused. It sort of looks retro but at the same time it does look quite modern too. The silver color actually reminded us of classic Hollywood films and it got us totally excited to think of driving around inside this vehicle. Some may think it is too boxy with several eccentric touches but for us, it is exactly what it needs to be to successfully stand out from the rest of the car models today. What is even better is the fact that beneath the unique and quirky design, the 2014 Nissan Cube boasts of numerous positive attributes.
The powertrain for the 2014 Nissan Cube consists of a four-cylinder engine which can be coupled to either a six-speed manual transmission or the optional CVT. This is where you should get your priorities straight. Our test drivers were lucky enough to test both available transmissions. If you want preppy power right from the start, choose the six-speed manual transmission. It will surely give you your dose of the mighty engine roar.
However, if you are more concerned about fuel economy over anything else, go for the CVT which gives an EPA estimate of 27/31 mpg city/highway which also corresponds to less fuel usage compared to its rivals in the segment today. Nevertheless, you can still expect a comfortable ride thanks to this vehicle’s precise steering and strong brakes.
Inside, the 2014 Nissan Cube to be more attractive than the other new hatchbacks we have already seen. You will be amazed with the ripple-effect at the ceiling while the mood lighting will surely get you in whatever mood you want. These are really pretty cool features that give this hatchback a boost.
You want a capable car with a usable cargo space and excellent fuel economy at the most affordable price possible. If you want all of these and more, you have to check the 2014 Nissan Cube. From experience, you are only bound to get great things out of this quirky but totally fun and capable hatchback.
