2010 Nissan Cube In Miami Attracts Plenty Of Looks....

Not that long ago, TCC's Bengt Halverson tested the 2009 Nissan Cube. (Read his review here.) The press preview event we attended was held in sunny Miami. Normally, Miami would be a lousy place to introduce a car; think about it, where are you going to really "drive" in and around Miami? All the roads are straight, and what roads there are, are clogged with angry cabbies, lost tourists, and doddering  snowbirds.

However, Nissan makes no pretensions that their new Cube is anything other than a city car designed to provide stylish, affordable, and practical transportation within limiting urban confines. It performed as promissed.

I also attended the event. After drawing straws, the erudite Mr. Halverson won the opportunity to write the review so I occupied myself with taking the photos you see here.

Graffiti aficionados may recognize the handy work of a famous spray can artist or two. If you're visiting Miami, this backdrop can been seen from the northbound lanes I-95. Not too far past the airport, look east and you'll see an entire block of this colorful urban artwork. As you're looking at the backgrounds, don't forget to study the 2009 Cube's design.

Nissan's Japanese studio pulled off the asymmetric  shape beautifully. Note how the shape swells around the bottom edge, a technique that gives the Cube a more solid-looking road presence. To my eye, the graffiti and the Cube were a perfect match.

    Bad stuff?

  2. "Just bought one"

    It is art on wheels. I'm entertained to see people react to this car. I bought the S model wirh ground effects. spoiler, interior light kit (very nice) and upgraded to gun metal Nissan alloys. Cha-Ching. 46 years old and having fun. Interior is the greatest part, roomy, comfortable, relaxing. It's very hard to drive and not smile. Makes me happy to drive and love the exterior art styling.
