The Cube's overstyled exterior will make it an icon on the roads. During our time with the car, it drew looks of interest from passersby. Beyond the shape of the car, even the oval turn signals of the front lighting show style.
The side-hinged rear hatch encompasses most of the rear of the Cube, making it easy to put large objects into the car. For the U.S. version of the Cube, Nissan hinged the hatch on the left. In Japan, it is hinged on the right, to reflect the right-hand drive configuration.
