Review: Nissan Cube (2002 – 2008)


Decent to drive with quiet yet torquey 1.6 chain cam engine, sensible gearing, light controls and excellent ride quality.

Quirky, oddball looks you either like or don't like. Not as practical as it looks due to high rear door sill for structural strength.

What do you think of the Nissan Cube Kaisen?

After driving conservative cars for many years, I think it’s time for something different. My local Nissan dealer has a 2006 Cube Kaisen priced at £10,995. In part exchange they have offered me £13,500 so I get the Cube plus a cheque for £2500. I would be interested to hear your comments on the Cube.
Nothing wrong with the Cube and it could even appreciate due to scarcity. A decent deal at the time you wrote, too. Video test here:
