2011 Nissan Cube Safety

8.0
On Safety
With an extensive set of safety features and excellent crash-test results, the 2011 Nissan Cube is a safety standout and one of the best picks in its bargain price range.

The Nissan Cube still hasn't been crash-tested by the federal government, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has tested the Cube in all of its test categories and given it a top 'good' score in each, including the new roof-crush test. It's one of the few small vehicles to be named a Top Safety Pick under the more stringent qualifications for the award.

There's also nothing major missing from the Cube's feature set, which includes standard active head restraints; side and side-curtain airbags; electronic stability control, and anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist.

With a good list of safety features, as well as top crash-test results, the 2011 Nissan Cube is safer than most other subcompacts.

Thanks to the expanded corner window and large side mirrors, outward visibility from the driver's seat is quite good.
