Not so long ago, boxy cars like this one were numerous in North America, mostly manufactured by Japanese carmakers. These days, they almost vanished from the market. However, it looks like that Nissan plans to bring it back. The previous version wasn’t too long in North America. It came in 2009 and was in the offer for just five years. However, the same version is still on the market in Japan. Moreover, this is actually the third generation of this boxy crossover and it looks like the fourth one is on its way.
Allegedly, the new model is already under development and should hit the market in the next year. We count on improvements in various aspects, including practicality, which has already been on a pretty high level for all these years. The exact launch date is still unknown, but the latest reports are suggesting that the new model 2020 Nissan Cube could hit the market already in the next year.
2020 Nissan Cube Redesign
We count on a lot of novelties to come with this redesign. The current generation has been around for a full decade, so it seems natural to expect a lot of improvements. The upcoming redesign will surely bring many of them. The first thing that comes to mind is the platform. Once again, the Cube will be in a tight relationship with the rest of small cars from Nissan’s and Renault’s lineup. The 2020 Nissan Cube will ride on the new version of the company’s familiar V platform. Compared to the previous version, the new model should drastically improve ride quality, which has been the weakest point of this small crossover so far.
Styling and Interior Redesign
In terms of the styling, we are pretty sure that the new model won’t go too far away from its recognizable design approach. We expect to see a pretty similar overall shape, characterized by pretty rectangular, boxy shape. Still, we also expect that the front end will be a little bit different, more modern. Practically, we expect to see the implementation of the brand’s new design language, including the famous V-Motion grille layout.
On the inside, we hope that the new model will utilize better-quality materials than before. The previous generation was characterized by low-rent materials all around the cabin and that was one of the biggest complaints about it. Therefore, we expect much more effort from Nissan engineers this time. On the other side, we have no doubt that the 2020 Nissan Cube will be very practical and functional, with the boxy and cargo-friendly interior, as well as with plenty of tech features on the list of standard equipment
2020 Nissan Cube Engines
It’s hard to predict exact engines for the 2020 Nissan Cube, but some reports suggest that there should be at least to powertrain options in the offer. Many believe that the 2020 Nissan Cube will come with Renault’s new 1.3-liter turbo engine, which delivers around 130 horsepower. There is also a chance to see Nissan’s familiar 2.0-liter unit, which is good for about 150 horsepower. Some reports also suggest that the 2020 Nissan Cube could be offered in Europe. In that case, we expect to see a diesel version in the offer as well. On the other side, there are no details about the potential electrified version at the moment.
2020 Nissan Cube Release Date and Price
Although many reports suggest that the 2020 Nissan Cube could hit the market already in the next year, we haven’t heard any words from the officials so far. Therefore, take this article with a reserve. When it comes to the price, we presume that base models will go around 18/19.000 dollars.
