MB Insurance can assist with insurance for your Nissan Cube. The Nissan Cube is a vehicle that is gaining popularity in Australia, however insurance for this vehicle is not always easy to obtain. The Cube was never officially sold new in Australia, meaning all examples in Australia are Japanese Imports, also known as Grey Imports. Thankfully MB Insurance can assist with insurance for all Japanese Imported vehicles.
The Nissan Cube is a rare example of a vehicle that literally lives up to its name! It has an accommodating cube shape that allows four adults to be seated comfortably, along with their luggage. It’s cube-like shape goes against the modern passenger car design trend of curvy, sleek body styling and is perhaps the reason for its ability to turn heads as it passes on the road.
The Nissan Cube was first manufactured in 1998, with very few of the original generation making its way to Australia. The second generation model ran from 2002 to 2008 and is the most popular model Cube in Australia. This shape was larger than the original Cube, and was originally fitted with a 1.4 lire four cylinder engine. In 2005 a 1.5 lire engine became available. A manual transmission was standard however the majority were fitted with a CVT automatic transmission. In 2008 the third generation Cube was launched with a slightly more rounded shape. It was also sold new in the United States and Europe but not in Australia.
The Nissan Cube has unique exterior styling, and this extends to the well appointed interior. Cloth Trim, air conditioning and a CD player were standard equipment, however many options were also available. These included a factory bodykit, alloy wheels, a sunroof and even a 4WD system instead of the standard front wheel drive. LED lighting and optional shag carpet on the dashboard was also an optional extra for some year models.
