Tiny and tall
Like the last-generation Scion xB, the Nissan Cube would look tiny if viewed from above. Side-to-side and front-to-back, it's only about as big as a Nissan Versa compact car. (In this photo, it's parked next to a 1970s-era Honda Civic.)

Unlike the new American version of the Scion xB, the Cube won't get stretched into "the Rectangle"when it's redesigned, Nissan promises. The new version will be about the same size and shape. As Nissan puts it, this car is designed for a "Cube world."
