2014 Honda CR-Z vs. 2014 Nissan Cube Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda CR-Z.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda CR-Z 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 Honda CR-Z 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 Honda CR-Z and the Nissan Cube have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Honda CR-Z is much wider than the Nissan Cube, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda CR-Z, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Cube.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Honda CR-Z doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan Cube.

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

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Honda CR-Z and the Nissan Cube.

Utility
Those who have to chauffeur around a lot of people should beware, the Honda CR-Z seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Cube. The Honda CR-Z has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Honda CR-Z comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Cube.
