  • Starting price: $16,760

The boxy Nissan Cube made its entry into the market of minicars in the 2009 model year, and Nissan has made mild changes to this unusually styled car since it was first released.

For 2013, the most notable change is that Nissan now offers just two versions, the S and SL. All Nissan Cube minicars are powered by a 122-horsepower, 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine that gets 27 mpg city and 31 mpg highway when equipped with the continuously variable transmission.

Standard features include remote keyless entry, power outside mirrors, door locks and windows with driver's one-touch auto up/down, air conditioning, cruise control, tilt steering column, a six-way manual adjustable driver's seat, six air bags, four-way manual adjustable passenger seat, and a 60/40-split folding and reclining rear bench seat.

The SL model adds automatic temperature control, rear heating ducts under the front seat and 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Options include a navigation system, rearview camera, fog lights and satellite radio capability.
