The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Cube is a boxy fashion statement that puts an emphasis on style, but at the expense of some practicality. The 2014 Scion xB might not be as trendy -- or sensible -- as it tries to be, but it fits a lot of cabin space into a compact footprint.
