I hereby claim the Nissan Cube, Scion xB and Kia Soul as crossover vehicles. As far as I'm concerned, they meet the description, and they compete for sales with other compact crossovers. The first of the group that I've been able to get into my driveway is the 2012 Nissan Cube. The 2012 Nissan Cube 1.8 S arrives with a $17,420 base price ($20,978 as tested), along with Nissan's 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty and 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty. The EPA estimates that the Cube can achieve 27 mpg city/31 mpg highway. Let's drive.
