With the departure of the Nissan Cube for 2015, the xB is really the last of the box cars.
Its closest analog is the Kia Soul, a boxy, space-efficient car that sits midway between a traditional hatch and the xB.
The Kia was recently updated and offers a lot more choice and features than the Cube ever has, and it manages to be kind of fun if you hustle it.
The sharp-handling MINI Cooper Clubman rivals the xB in size and accessories, but it costs thousands of dollars more—the extra money nets better power, efficiency, and materials, however.
The quirky Nissan Juke also ranks as an alternative to the xB, although it's markedly less practical and has more of a sporty tack.
And Ford's newest Transit Connect wagon is somewhat boxy, but more of a small van; it was just redesigned for 2015.
