Nissan's Cube was an instant hit when it first went on sale in its native Japan, but it still took 12 years before the firm was brave enough to bring it over here. Going head to head with the ubiquitous Mini and the Kia Soul, it majors in style with its unusual boxy design.

  • Adult Occupant Rating

    4 out of 5

In official Euro NCAP crash tests, the Cube scored four stars out of five - a good result for a car this size, especially as it was tested under the organisation's tougher regime. Introduced in 2009, this is one overall rating that covers adult occupant safety as well as child and pedestrian protection, plus a rear impact whiplash test. In the crash simulation the Cube was let down its child occupant protection during the front impact test, but all models come with electronic stability control as standard plus six airbags.

Reliability

The Cube uses much of the same technology as found in the Nissan Micra and Nissan note, so is well proven and should not present any major reliability problems for owners.
