Battle of the boxes

The folks over at Popular Mechanics have compared the Nissan Cube S, the Scion xB, and the Kia Soul Sport in a "300-mile fuel-economy test drive." The Cube had the CVT transmission; the xB and Soul were 5-speed manuals. Interesting mini reviews of each vehicle.

I thought the reviews of each box car were fair and interesting.They listed the pros and cons of each one.I'm not surprised they chose the Soul.I really like this trend in design it's a relief from the boring designs that many Americans seem to prefer that we Canadians have been subjected to for years.

I think that is retarded. You cannot compare the xB2 to the Cube or the Soul. The xB2 is not in the same class, it's big, heavy, more powerful, less room (imho). It's not even a box. I think it's a ridiculous comparison, putting the xB2 up against those vehicles.
