2014 Nissan Cube vs. 2014 Scion xD 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 xD. The Nissan Cube will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Scion xD.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Cube as you will with the Scion xD, 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 Nissan Cube is somewhat more expensive than the Scion xD. 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 xD.

Dimensions
The Nissan Cube is a little narrower than the Scion xD, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Cube takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Scion xD.

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

Handling
The Nissan Cube has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Scion xD, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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