2009 Nissan Cube

I don’t like to just post links but Nissan has a couple of exciting new vehicles coming out and I haven’t been able to get my hands on them myself. Additionally, Nissan is giving us bits of information but most of the information 1) has been given out or 2) is being told through magazines and news outlets.

Automobile Magazine has gotten their hands on a 2009 Nissan Cube and has driven it. Unlike other “first drive” articles, they actually drove it! At the bottom of the article is a section where they give links to a couple of other links and a wallpaper gallery. Enjoy

2009 Nissan Cube: It’s Here!

by Tim Joseph

The Los Angeles Auto Show is underway right now and here is a picture of the American Spec 2009 Nissan Cube. It is 10 inches longer and 4 inches wider than the previous model sold in Japan. Many critics said that this vehicle would never sell well here with only 95 HP so Nissan put the 1.8L Versa engine in and we get 122. It is lighter than the Versa so it should have a little bit of pep to its step. You will have the choice of either a 6-speed manual transmission or a CVT transmission. High end features such as push button start, blue tooth and rear sonar will be available. The Cube will come in an S and SL trim just like the Versa and Sentra. While pricing is expected to be just under $15,000, Nissan may surprise us when pricing in announced in February at the Chicago Auto Show.
