The Cube's competitors just aren't quite as, ehem, cubic as this little Nissan.
The Scion xD has similar sizing, but with a smaller rear seat and cargo area.
The current xB feels smaller inside than the Cube, despite being a larger vehicle.
It's a better driver on the highways, but its fuel economy isn't as good.
The Kia Soul is probably the best alternative, especially for people who enjoy driving; it handles wells and gets better gas mileage.
However, it's less refined inside.
If you're willing to spend a bit more, the MINI Cooper Clubman also makes for a quirky alternative, but again, options make its price rocket in a hurry.
