Nissan’s Cube goes on sale this May, and a Nissan Press Release states that a base 6-speed version (what, you wanted the CVT?) will start at $13,999. And even though only 122 hp are on offer fom the Cube’s 1.8 liter four, even a loaded CVT version will weigh less than 2,900 lbs. There’s also something about an expensive special Krõm (Krôm? Kröm? Krøm?) edition. Specifically, “for those consumers that love the cube but are looking for a little something extra, the cube Kr?m (sic) offers that and then some.” Duly noted. But the nausea-inducing corporate enthusiasm doesn’t stop there. “It’s unique, it’s fun, it’s functional, and it makes being “square” hip again,” bubbles Nissan’s Al Castignetti of the cubist wonder. Translation: the Cd rating is 0.35. More pricing, model info and well-compensated enthusiasm to come.
