The Nissan Cube is a mini MPV produced by Japanese carmaker Nissan, introduced in 1998. It has always been sold in Japan, though it has also been sold in North America and Europe since 2009. The first generation of the Cube (designated Z10) was introduced in 1998. It shared the same platform as the Nissan Micra (known as the March in Japan and Southeast Asia), as well as the same 1.3 L engine. A CVT gearbox and four-wheel drive were optional. The Cube covered the gap in the Nissan lineup between the March and the Sunny. The first generation was sold only in Japan, though they have also been privately exported to the United Kingdom, Australia, and to Hong Kong. The second generation of the Cube was released in 2002 with a larger interior than the previous model. The combination of angled and curved surfaces was based on the third generation of the March, powered by a 1.4 L I4 engine.
