The Car Connection's Take

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 Scion xB has polarizing looks, a no-haggle dealer experience, and a long safety features list. It provides good value for those on a budget.
