How Geeky Is The Nissan Cube?

Nissan Cube: Totally Geeky or Geek Chic?

I'm not exactly a gear-head, but I can appreciate nice cars. Especially those that are gas friendly and geeked out, which could describe the Nissan Cube to a T. Emphasis on the could. I mean, I love the fact that the Nissan Cube offers full iPod integration, a sweet six-speaker sound system (two of which are called tweeters — how awesome is that?), satellite radio, and Bluetooth, all packed in a boxy exterior, but with a surprisingly curvaceous and roomy interior.

My only complaint is that most of these features come standard on the most expensive model, and aren't offered at all on the lower tiered ones. Shouldn't all of these great tech integrations come standard on all cars these days? Especially one whose ads are branding it as a Mobile Device? But at the end of the day, I gotta face the fact that what really endeared me to this car is the gadget grass on the dashboard that keeps your gear in its place. I admit it — I'm easily pleased.

My friend is getting one in a couple of weeks. I wouldn't want one for myself, but I will not mind riding around in his.

I agree with the person above me. The geeky part is cool, but what the heck happened to the exterior? It looks almost as bad as the Fiat Multipla http://www.resimmotoru.com/data/media/47/Fiat%20Multipla%202002%20001.jpg This can't possibly be the most aerodynamic shape they could come up with, either.

I wouldn't say this car is geeky... it's just plain ugly -- to me, anyway. The style of the car is just so out there. Even the ceiling is so different: http://www.cardata.com/images/2009/Nissan/2010_Nissan_Cube_ceiling.jpg

neither? its a disgusting looking car, and none of it's features set precedents, as they'd like you to believe. i don't think anything about it is geeky, other than the direction Nissan's marketing it.. you couldn't PAY me to drive one.

This car is gorgeous, and if you dont like it, go get one of the hundreds of other cars they make and leave this for us geek girls.

Are you kidding with your speaker/tweeter comment? Tweeters are high range speakers and the term has been around for decades.

I looove this car and it's look. Would love to own one. Hellooo Mood Lighting! I think you have to be an attention getter to want a car like this. If you just want something default, like a honda civic, no problem, but for people like me who own VW Bugs, this is worthy competition. Honorable mentions: Kia Soul and the new Pet Friendly Honda Element. http://automobiles.honda.com/element/dog-accessories.aspx

I wouldn't buy it, but I do like this car. I hate that all the cool stuff is so much extra, though. The wraparound window is pretty neat, it looks like a wave...except I'd worry about how well it would do in a crash - that kind of design seems like it might weaken the integrity of the frame. Personally, I'm a Nissan fan for life, but I'd rather get a new Rouge or Altima Coupe with some of the features available on the Cube added on.

Ugly. What's with the wrap around back window on only one side?? It's just hideous.

Ugly. Why do they keep making cars that look like boxes on wheels?

I love a car full of gadgets, but this car is just plain ugly. It does have the added geek appeal of kinda looking like a car out of the original Nintendo's old game "RC Pro Am", but that's not exactly what I look for in a car nowadays.

I saw a piece of promotional material that featured it. You took this postcard and held it up to a webcam on a PC (you had to install some software for it). On the PC's screen the car would pop up on the card like a little hologram. You could twist the card around and the car would respond. If you tilted it forward the doors would open up. Once the doors opened up if you bounced the card a little it would change the music that was playing on the car stereo. It was one of the coolest pieces of promotional material ever. While the Gadget Grass is VERY cool this car is so not my style.
