A Buyer’s Guide to the 2012 Nissan Cube

Nissan Cube 2012

The unique appearance of the 2012 Nissan Cube draws attention everywhere it goes. However, drivers appreciate the numerous standard features like speed-sensitive steering, keyless entry, cruise control and 16-inch alloy wheels to name a few. The result is a car that is easy to drive and offers comfort for passengers.

Key Features

The Cube is a five-passenger vehicle, but it also offers considerable cargo space that can be expanded by folding down the back seats. The fuel economy, while not the best in this class, is acceptable. Available in either a manual or CVT transmission, drivers can opt for a sportier ride and improved performance even with the smaller engine option.

Changes for 2012

The changes for the 2012 Nissan Cube include the addition of a new package that includes rearview monitoring, navigation, a Rockford Fosgate sound system and new seat colors. The SL and S models received a passenger armrest, and Intelligent Key become a standard feature on the SL.

What We Like

The Cube’s unique design, which is apparent on the outside and inside thanks to an interesting ripple headliner, makes it an instant conversation starter. The available cargo space and roomy cabin helps ensure comfort, even when carrying multiple passengers. A stiff suspension also handles bumps and rough roads easily, while the tight turning radius makes parking a breeze.

What Concerns Us

If you’re looking for a compact SUV style vehicle, the 2012 Nissan Cube will likely not meet your needs as it is not designed to handle much off-road fun. Also, those who want more power behind their driving should also consider a different vehicle since there is no upgrade available for the engine.

Available Models

The 2012 Nissan Cube is available in three different models. A manual six-speed transmission is standard on the base and S models. A Continuously Variable Transmission is standard on the SL and available on the S models.

Base, SL and S

  • 1.8-Liter Inline-4
  • 122 horsepower @ 5,200 rpm
  • 127 lb-ft of torque @ 4,800 rpm
  • City/highway fuel economy: 25/30 mpg (manual), 27/31 mpg (CVT)

Major Recalls

There have been no major recalls issued for this vehicle.

Common Issues

The most common complaint about the 2012 Nissan Cube is that the vertical placement of the windshield seems to result in rocks and other road debris causing cracks and breaks more frequently than is seen with other vehicles.
