Is Nissan Killing the Cube?
Rumor has it that Nissan is killing the Cube, although apparently it's more than a rumor in Canada. What's a square car loving person to do? Looking at the Cube's rather dismal U.S. sales, it's not all that surprising, assuming it's true. Canada is giving the Cube the axe, and it's likely the U.S. is next.
We reviewed the Cube back when it was introduced in 2009. We called it the opposite of the Kia Soul, meaning it was comfortable but not terribly athletic. I've always been a fan, but that shouldn't be surprising since I tend to like the cars no one else does. I'd still rock a Cube with the manual transmission that's lowered on some nice 15 or 16" wheels. Maybe some widened steelies?
Anyhow, if you are looking to purchase a new Cube soon, you might want to strike before this box ships out.
