NAPERVILLE, Ill., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- There is little doubt left in people's minds that Scion has almost cornered the market on uniquely designed vehicles that stand out in a crowd and conservatively be referred to as "a little left of center." The Scion xB available at Scion of Naperville does have one fairly close competitor in that department in the form of the Nissan Cube. Both vehicles feature similarly esoteric styling that appeal to a certain type of buyer that values utility as much as being a little different. While it may be forgivable in some circles to think that the Scion xB and Nissan Cube may be sibling vehicles, vague resemblances is where the similarities end in very matter of factly.


On just about every measurable metric, the Scion xB outdoes the offerings brought forward from the Nissan Cube. The Scion xB has a bigger engine, a 2.4-liter, inline four-cylinder that produces 158-horsepower. For comparison's sake, the Nissan Cube is powered by a 1.8-liter, four-cylinder engine that has a maximum output of 122-horsepower. The xB also benefits from being able to highly customizable thanks to an extensive catalogue available from Scion. xB owners can pick out so many different available elements that it is almost guaranteed that no two versions will be identical.

Since both of these vehicles fancy themselves capable, though compact, cargo movers comparing each one's available cargo space all but closes the door on the Nissan Cube vs. the Scion xB. The five-passenger Scion xB has room for 21 cubic-feet of cargo. When the rear row of seats is folded down, that space really expands quickly to open up 70 cu.-ft. The Nissan cube, on the other hand, offers just more than 11 cubic-feet of space with all seats occupied and 58 cu.-ft. with the rear seat stowed away.
