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.

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


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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
