we particularly liked the asymmetric rear door that offers two detents, one at about 9 inches and the other all the way open

The 2013 Nissan Cube offers a lot of standard features, but its options list is quite limited.
With the discontinuation of the base model, there are now just S and SL trims of the Cube--and if you want a manual transmission you're stuck with the S, as the top SL is only offered with a CVT. All models include air conditioning, cruise control, power windows, a passenger-seat armrest, map lights, remote keyless entry, a trip computer, and an audio system with auxiliary input.
Step up to the SL and you get automatic climate control, alloy wheels, an Intelligent Key system, Bluetooth connectivity, and an upgraded sound system that includes iPod connectivity.
Beyond that, your options are quite limited, especially if you want additional convenience items or tech extras. Most notably, on the SL you can opt for a Preferred Package that adds an SD-based navigation system with XM NavTraffic capability, plus Rockford Fosgate audio with a subwoofer, XM satellite radio, and front fog lamps.
If you want appearance extras, though, you're in luck. There are more than 40 different accessories available at the dealership, and they range from practical items like cargo organizers to custom wheels, decals, and other appearance options.
For 2013, both the Cargo Version Package and last year's Indigo Limited Edition have been discontinued.
With a lot of customization options, as well as an impressive list of standard features, the Cube aims at younger shoppers.
