2014 Nissan Cube vs. 2014 Scion iQ Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Nissan Cube than the Scion iQ. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion iQ.

Convenience
With the Nissan Cube you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Scion iQ, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 Nissan Cube is somewhat more expensive than the Scion iQ. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Cube will cost more in transportation costs than the Scion iQ.

The Nissan Cube is about the same width as the Scion iQ. If you go with the Nissan Cube, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Scion iQ.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan Cube does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Scion iQ.

Handling
The Nissan Cube has a significantly larger turning radius than the Scion iQ, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.
