The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
6.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
For those motivated by style and fashion—yet still needing a healthy dose of practicality—the Cube hits the right buttons; practical types might find it hard to get past some packaging issues, though. It's not as much fun as its styling suggests, but the 2012 Scion xD has a low base price and offers lots of accessories.
