The 2009 Nissan cube(R) is offered in two well-equipped front-wheel drive

B-platform and is available with a state-of-the-art, 122-horsepower, 1.8-litre

Nissan's cube(R) also meets the practical needs of today's active,
environmentally aware drivers, providing a small footprint with a large
interior space - along with a fuel efficiency of 6.5L/100 km (43 MPG) Highway
with the CVT transmission (2009 Transport Canada Figures).
The 2009 Nissan cube(R) builds on the heritage of two previous cube(R)
generations with a thoughtful, expressive design that is economical,
dependable and fun to own. The new cube(R)'s roomy interior is designed as an
inviting social space for up to five passengers, with comfortable front
seating and a three-position sliding, reclining theatre-style rear seat.

in the front and rear provides a distinctive driver experience and increased
visibility. The front door windows utilize a "photo frame" design, while the
asymmetrical wraparound side/rear window creates enhanced rear diagonal
visibility for lane changes and reverse parking. Unique interior features
