With an extensive list of safety features, as well as excellent crash-test results, the 2013 Nissan Cube provides a lot of security in a maneuverable, easy-parking, and low-priced package.
The Cube includes standard electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, front, side, and side-curtain airbags, and active head restraints. Side mirrors are large and effective, and the wide expanse of wrap-around glass behind the driver's rear shoulder helps with outward visibility.
There still aren't any crash-test results for the Cube from the federal government, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rated the Cube and gives it the top "Good" rating in every single category: frontal offset, side impact, rear crash protection, and roof strength. It's also one of the few vehicles its size to earn the Top Safety Pick nod.
