2014 Chevrolet Sonic vs. 2014 Nissan Cube Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the Chevrolet Sonic, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Sonic.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Sonic as you will with the Nissan Cube, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Cube. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Sonic and the Nissan Cube have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Sonic is much wider than the Nissan Cube, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Sonic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Cube.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Sonic and the Nissan Cube do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Chevrolet Sonic has a larger turning radius than the Nissan Cube, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Sonic is somewhat more powerful than the Nissan Cube.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Sonic and the Nissan Cube. The Chevrolet Sonic has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Sonic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Cube.
