"A major hit, providing spacious interior and luggage space with good height."
The Cube was a high-roofed, compact 5-door estate first presented in 1998 and the first model was based on the 2nd generation of the March. Its innovative square design is said to be the inspiration for the Toyota bB and the Honda Mobilio.
It is 3,750 mm long, 1,610 mm wide and 1,625 mm high. Compared to the original March, the Cube gained 30 mm in length and 22 mm in width, and it also became 200 mm higher. Coupled with the square design, it looks a full size larger than the March. The interior was spacious and the wheelbase was the same 2,360 mm as the March, but the space between the front and rear seats is close to that of the Bluebird. Adoption of a column gear change also made moving over from the left and right in the front seats easier.
The 1.3 L inline-4 DOHC engine of the March was also applied on the Cube. With a revision of the exhaust system and efforts to reduce friction, output was increased by 2 BHP for a maximum of 80 BHP and a maximum torque of 10.8 kgfm. A 4-gear AT and the CVT were available and the transmission was offered in FF or 4WD. As with the March the suspension utilises struts for the front and 5-link suspension in the rear. Due to the higher centre of gravity the springs were reinforced and although this made it more stable while cornering, ride quality became slightly stiffer.
It was equipped with front ventilated disc and rear drum brakes. with ABS and brake assist. In addition to the wealth of storage space, this car also had many other fine ideas, such as a convenient rear glass hatchback.
10 months after the Cube went on sale, the production exceeded one hundred thousand units and set Nissan's new record since the 1st generation March in 1982. Until the complete model change in 2002 the Cube was a huge success, selling over four hundred thousand units.
