Nissan’s Cube Gets Pricing Info

Nissan Cube

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.

With the era of gas-guzzling SUVs fazing out with the general public, surely the same would be said with our country’s superheroes and crime-fighters. Which fuel-efficient cars would make the ideal match with popular superheroes?

Smart Fortwo: The Thingsmart fortwo

There’s nothing dumb about smart cars. Once a sole fixture in quaint European villages, smart cars have been popping up all over our American roadways. This car would make the perfect vehicle for The Thing from the Fantastic Four. Trapped in his monstrous form, the smart fortwo would show off The Thing’s sensitive side as well as being fuel-efficient.

Nissan Goes Cube Crazy!

Friday November 21st, 2008 at 9:1111 AM

By Harmon Leon

With bells and whistles, this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, Nissan introduced the 2009 Cube. Don’t be deceived by what looks like a refrigerator on wheels, the Cube has the same 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine found in the Nissan Versa, and is good for 122 HP and 127 lb-ft of torque.

Nissan first introduced the original Cube to Japan back in 1998. Judging how it went over, the ’98 Cube was perhaps a car way ahead of its time. But now with its funky style and affordable cost, the Cube could catch on Stateside with the Magna comic crowd and become a very fashionable vehicle with its Jacuzzi Curve layout and floating meter pod driver’s area. Like Godzilla, the Cube has already taken Tokyo by storm through massive exposure in trendy magazines, videos and smattering across the Web.

2009 Nissan CubeNot everything can be as sexy or curvaceous as the Nissan 370Z. On the opposite end of the car spectrum is the new Nissan Cube being promoted heavily at the Los Angeles Auto show this week. Taking a closer look, the Cube really has some nice design cues inside and outside. For something shaped like a shoebox, the Cube has a lot of curves. Below are photos of the new Cube from the floor of the L.A. Auto Show.

The first generation Cube was introduced and sold to Japan’s customers in 1998. The 2009 model is the third generation of the Cube’s evolution and will be available to the U.S. and Canada in the spring of 2009. The unique design features an asymmetrical body, a stout “bulldog-like” stance, wide doors, a large greenhouse with wraparound rear window, and a refrigerator-style rear door.
