2014 Mazda Mazda2 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 Mazda Mazda2, 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 Mazda Mazda2.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mazda Mazda2 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Mazda Mazda2 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Cube.

The Mazda Mazda2 is about the same width as the Nissan Cube. When looking at overall length, the Mazda Mazda2 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Nissan Cube.

Drivetrain
The Mazda Mazda2 has much less torque than the Nissan Cube, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Mazda Mazda2 has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Cube, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Mazda Mazda2 has less horsepower than the Nissan Cube, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mazda Mazda2 and the Nissan Cube. The Mazda Mazda2 has significantly less cargo room than the Nissan Cube, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
