The Cube, Nissan’s answer to Toyota’s Scion xB, has finally gotten some pricing information. The imaginatively named Cube will start at just under 15 grand, which is plenty cheap, and seems like a direct financial bull’s-eye for the target market.
The Cube, which is expected to reach US showrooms by early May, and come in an assortment of trim levels.
They will all be front-wheel drive, and share the same 1.8 liter, 122hp engine. The base model, using a 1.8 liter mill, starts at $13,990, a 6-speed manual is its only tranny option. The 1.8S comes in at $14,690, also with the 6-speed, but a CVT transmission is an option. The 1.8SL, at $16,790, and Krom, at $19,360, are only available with the CVT. The Krom, by the way is pronounced like the word “chrome”
Available niceties on the Cube include Nissan’s Intelligent Key system with push button ignition, Bluetooth, audio from Rockford Fosgate, XM Radio and an iPod interface. There will be 40 individual accessories to personalize your Cube, similar to what Scion puts forward to its buyers.
