Nissan are so hip to be square.. IN ASSOCIATION WITH Firestone together.

Byline: Braiv twowey

NISSAN will launch the Cube model in Europe next year.

The car has gained a certain cult following for its ruthless pursuit of space and efficient packaging which gives it its trademark square appearance.

The car uses the squareness of its appearance to carry five passengers and a decent amount of luggage with the wheels pushed out to the far corners to aid packaging.

A 1.5-litre dCi diesel engine and a 1.6-litre petrol will make up the European engine lineup and the Cube will be based on the platform of the next generation Micra.

Amongst the car's more interesting features is the wraparound rear window that improves visibility by doing away with one of the D-pillars which allows for panoramic views out the rear window, aiding parking.

The Cube also uses a side-hinged rear door.

It will be more expensive than the Micra but Nissan haven't been firm on how much the car will cost when it goes on sale in around twelve months.
