Nissan Cube 2010 in Uganda

Nissan Cube 2010 in Uganda

The Nissan Cube is a mini MPV produced by Japanese car-maker Nissan since 1998.

Initially sold only in Japan, the Cube has been sold in North American and European markets since 2009, although discontinued in Europe in 2011.

It is essentially a slightly larger load carrying alternative to the Nissan March hatchback.

Before you buy a Nissan Cube in Uganda

The cleverly named Nissan Cube speaks for itself. The tall compact body wants to emphasize space utility for practical use. The Cube was first released in 1998 and it became a popular compact car given the high head space in the interior.

For models released starting 2002, the rear features asymmetrical lateral-sliding doors for ease of use. Don't let the size trick you as the Cube is equipped with an in-line four cylinder engine to make sure you have enough power.

Choose from CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) and Automatic Transmission, depending on your preference, but models after November 2008 are only available in the former.

This car also comes in FF (Front Wheel, Front Engine) and Four Wheel Drive layout if you're looking for more acceleration on rough terrain.

The interior of a Nissan Cube

Modest materials and hard plastics are used to good effect for a pleasant cabin that presents better than many class rivals.

The Cube offers a lot of headroom--more than the Scion xB and the Soul in the front and as much as the Soul in the rear. Large adults will find plenty of room on comfortable seats.

For the rear seats, most adults should have enough headroom and legroom, but taller folks may wish for a bit more knee space behind a front seat pushed all the way back.

The rear seat can slide fore and aft to favor cargo or passenger room, and the split seatbacks can recline independently.

The base Cube is surprisingly well-equipped and includes air conditioning, remote keyless entry, a tilt steering column, an audio system with two speakers and an auxiliary audio input jack.

And cargo room is plentiful. Behind the rear seats there's an adequate 11.4 cubic feet of space, but fold the second-row seats flat and it increases dramatically to 58.1 cu.-ft. That's eight more cubic feet than the utilitarian Nissan Versa hatchback offers.

Last take on this Ugandan Car

The Nissan Cube is a favorite among the automotive press for its eccentric design and excellent utility. Design touches like the headliner, which looks like a drop of water, and innovative storage options show that every aspect of this car was carefully planned out.

Overall whether it is the latest brand or oldest one, the Nissan Cube price is well justified.
