The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Cube is boxy alright, but in a way that prioritizes style and fashion, not outright practicality. Call it fashionable or not; the 2013 Scion xB offers box-on-wheels versatility, easy maneuverability, and a strong list of features, all at a very affordable price.
