The 2012 Nissan Cube bundles top crash-test results with an extensive list of safety features, making it a standout subcompact in safety and clearly at the top of the list for bargain-priced cars.

While the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) still hasn't tested the Nissan Cube, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the Cube its top "Good" rating in every single category: frontal offset, side impact, rear crash protection, and roof strength. That makes it a Top Safety Pick, one of the few small cars to earn that designation. The NHTSA did give the Cube four stars out of five for rollover protection, though.

The 2012 Cube has all the features you'd expect, including electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, front, side, and side-curtain airbags, and active head restraints, all standard. Outward visibility is good, especially over the driver's right shoulder, due to the wraparound window and thin pillar. The side mirrors are also large and very effective.

Conclusion

Top crash-test ratings and good safety features put the 2012 Nissan Cube on top of the subcompact safety list.

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.
