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.

Conclusion

The 2013 Nissan Cube's cubism results in some unimpressive highway ratings, but it's fuel-efficient in town.

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.
