Oh come on, it's not that bad! :) While we will miss the extreme squarish design of the previous model, we must remember that the new Cube has to meet NHTSA safety standards, so that's why the new model has a somewhat more "rounded" look.
I'm hoping that Nissan will use the same drivetrain as the Versa--namely the 1.8-liter I-4 rated at 120 bhp with either six-speed manual or CVT automatic--for the North American market Cube. For the JDM version, the most powerful engine is a 1.5-liter I-4 with a CVT automatic--essentially the same engine found on the JDM Nissan Tiida (as the Versa is known in Japan).
