The 2013 Nissan Cube doesn't get gas mileage that's very impressive. And that's perhaps a matter of the Cube's tall, blocky body.
The Cube earns EPA ratings of 27 mpg city, 31 mpg highway with the CVT, for a combined rating of 28 mpg. That's a much narrower spread between city and highway figures than in most vehicles, and if anything, those ratings may be a tad optimistic. In quite rapid stop-and-go driving over a short test loop, our drivers saw just 24 and 25 mpg in two different Cubes fitted with the CVT.
With a manual transmission, the mileage drops to 25 mpg city, 30 highway—again, good if you plan to keep most of your driving to urban areas.
The 2013 Nissan Cube's cubism results in some unimpressive highway ratings, but it's fuel-efficient in town.
