The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The spacious, refined 2009 Nissan Cube makes a whole lot of sense for city dwellers, and it'll get you more attention than many sport coupes. The 2009 Chevrolet HHR is a great urban runabout for small-business owners with frequent cargo hauls.
