Expert Quotes:

25 mpg city, 30 highway (six-speed manual); 27/31 mpg (CVT automatic)

we averaged 27.9 mpg in and around the clogged environs of Los Angeles

Maybe it's due to aerodynamics–or lack thereof–but the 2014 Nissan Cube doesn't get especially stellar fuel economy.

With a manual transmission, the mileage sits to 25 mpg city, 30 highway—decent if you plan to keep most of your driving to urban areas.

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.

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.
