Benefits of Driving a 2012 Nissan Cube Wagon

The Cube utilizes Nissan's economical 1.8L 4-cylinder engine also used in the Versa. The upright box-like styling also allows for seating for 5 passengers as well as 11 cubic feet of cargo space inside. The Cube's unusual styling is a stylish alternative to other boxy compacts, such as Scion's xB and the new Suzuki SX4.

What's new for 2012?

Nissan has given the Cube a few updates for 2012. A brand new 'S Indigo Limited Edition' package includes uniquely colored seats, a navigation system and rearview monitor, a Rockford Fosgate sound system, Nissan Intelligent Key and unique 15-inch wheels. SL models now get the Nissan Intelligent Key as a standard feature, while S and SL models get a new front passenger seat armrest. Nissan has also added five new colors for the cube in 2012: Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Cayenne Red and Bali Blue. The top of the line Krom model is no longer available.

  • compact maneuverability

Model Review

Nissan recognized the renewed success of the subcompact market in North America and promptly brought over their distinctive Cube. It's powered by a 1.8L 4-cylinder engine that makes 122 horsepower. Two transmissions are available -- a 6-speed manual or continuously variable transmission.

Safety Ratings help

What do the Safety Ratings mean?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) performs independent crash testing of new vehicles and then assigns them a score based on their performance. The overall crash test rating is based on how a vehicle performs in the following tests:

Driver Crash Grade:

Measures the chance of a serious injury to a crash test dummy that is placed in a driver's seat and driven into a fixed barrier at 35 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less chance of injury.

Passenger Crash Grade:

Similar to the driver crash grade, only now the focus is on the passenger.

Rollover Resistance:

Simulates an emergency lane change to measure the likelihood of a vehicle rolling over. A five-star rating means there is 10 percent or less risk of rollover.

Side Impact Crash Test - Front:

Focuses on the front side of a vehicle. It simulates crashes that can occur in intersections by striking a 3,015-pound weight against the side of a vehicle at 38.5 MPH. A five-star rating means there is 5 percent or less chance of injury.

Side Impact Crash Test - Rear:

Similar to the front side impact test only now the focus is on the rear passenger.
