Boxy Nissan Cube proves to be tech delight

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2010 Nissan Cube Krom.

Josh Miller/CNET

As members of the media, we like to get attention; however, the extremely boxy styling of the Nissan Cube proved even a little too much for us. When we got out of the car, we took pains to explain to any onlookers that it wasn't actually ours, just a loaner from Nissan. But more serious attention seekers, or those who don't give a damn what anyone thinks, could live with the Cube's design.

And we had no problem with the extremely practical interior space, with headroom that would make the 7-foot  7-inch tall Manute Bol feel comfortable. And with the Krom edition, the Cube came with plenty of practical and fun tech toys. Its iPod integration is a good start, but it also had a Bluetooth hands-free phone system that allowed voice dialing by name. Then there are the interior accent lights, adjustable through a wide color range.

Check out our review of the 2010 Nissan Cube Krom.
