2013 Nissan Cube Overview
2013 Nissan Cube Exterior
Boxy compact vehicles already tend to stand out, but the 2013 Nissan Cube—which lives up nicely to its name, by the way—stands out even from those. Instead of taunt, angular edges, the Cube’s contours are soft, round edges, must like the big orbs of glass that replace the usual sharp, square windows. The rear left window is especially stylish as it gives the appearance of wrapping around the corner of the car.
2013 Nissan Cube Performance
The 2013 Nissan Cube is powered by a 1.8-liter four-cylinder that makes 122 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque via a six-speed manual transmission. A continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) is available. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 9.7 seconds—an average time for a subcompact car.

2013 Nissan Cube Interior
While the 2013 Nissan Cube exterior is about curves and soft edges, the interior is about ripples. Yes, ripples—the unique pattern embossed into the headliner and speaker grilles to the available 20-color mood lighting. It’s definitely different but surprisingly tasteful, and it never detracts from the functionality of the interior—all gauges are easy to see and to use.
