Share this Vehicle
In the Japanese domestic market, Nissan has a runaway hit on its hands with the Cube as the must-have automotive style accessory among Japan's youth. This is one of the coolest and freshest designs of vehicle introduced in the last few years. A car that's proving to be not just great in design, but spaceous, inexpensive to insure and economic to run, this model's sold extremely well in Japan and the USA. Reasoning that young Europeans might be just as turned on by the funky box on wheels, Nissan has announced intentions of marketting the Cube in the UK from 2008.
Developed around the product concept of a "magical box," the second-generation Cube provides interior spaciousness and convenient storage features which enable the car to serve as the driver's personal 'toolbox.' The exterior design of the Cube was executed with the aim of creating a "new cubic design," and draws on themes originally proposed in the Nissan Chappo concept first shown at the 2001 Geneva Motor Show. The goal was to create the best box form among the next generation of roomy compact cars in this class. The design team's four key themes of "naughty, relaxing, compact and agile" are embodied in the design. They sought a design with clear originality, functionality that provides "joy of use, and loyalty-inspiring appeal". The exterior has been rendered in a novel box form that projects a compact, agile image, achieved through the application of two principal design motifs. One is the 'laterally asymmetrical design' at the rear, which serves both symbolic and functional purposes. The other is the concept of 'a square with rounded corners' that conveys a sense of unity. The interior design exudes a sensation of relaxing in one's own room, sitting on a comfortable sofa and surrounded by favorite pieces of furniture and audio equipment. The Cube has one of the shortest overall lengths and smallest minimum turning radii (4.4 m) of any vehicle in its class. The long and wide roof gives occupants generous headroom and shoulder room with a feeling of openness. In the front seat, headroom measures 366 mm on the side and 670 mm to the front. Shoulder room in the front and rear seats measures 1,363 mm and 1,329 mm, respectively. The height of the hip point from the ground is set at 625 mm to allow excellent forward visibility combined with ease of ingress/egress. In addition, the driver's seat incorporates a ratchet-type lifter that moves the cushion vertically as much as 40 mm, enabling users of various statures to enjoy the optimum driving position. Both the front and rear seats have thick cushions and are shaped to provide support up to an occupant's shoulders, combining superior comfort with excellent body-holding capability. The adoption of large armrests also allows occupants to sit more comfortably for an enhanced sense of relaxation. The rear seat slides fore and aft up to 220 mm, creating maximum knee room of 602 mm for comfortable roominess comparable to that of top luxury cars in today's market. A sideways-opening back door has been adopted that opens and closes effortlessly even in tight places. An opening width of 1,122 mm and a luggage area width of 1,010 mm make it easy to load and unload large items from the luggage compartment. The slide mechanism of the rear seat operates with just one hand to expand the luggage space up to a maximum VDA capacity of 460L. Cube's are fitted with a 1.4 litre fuel injected engine and column shift automatic transmission. Other equipment also included with this example: Privacy rear glass, wind deflectors on all 4 doors, power steering, central locking, ABS, dual SRS air bags, Air conditioning with air ioniser, remote controlled door mirrors with electrical retract mode, CD/Radio and fitted mats.
