"The centrepiece of the new Cube's universal appeal is its surprisingly roomy interior that offers room for five in a lounge-like comfort. It creates a highly changeable space - for interacting with friends. It's a space that is highly changeable and adaptable to owners' evolving lives, with plenty of room for personalisation," said Loing.
The Nissan Cube's clever, inspired and surprisingly open occupant space was conceived with a 'Jacuzzi Curve' layout and 'floating meter pod' driver's area. It combines 'casual lounge'-style passenger seating with a relaxed driving experience. The interactive interior is anchored by its curve-themed architecture, such as the subtle wavy shaping of the instrument panel, door panels, seat shapes, and the iconic 'Water Drop' that can be seen in the cupholders and the climate control design. They are inspired by nature and the calming way that ripples move outward from a drop in water.
The comfortable Nissan Cube seating includes individual driver's and passenger seats, along with a 'lounge sofa' style sliding rear bench seat.
The sliding rear seat can be adjusted to three positions and is positioned higher than the front seats, theatre style, enhancing rear passenger comfort and visibility. "The new Cube's interior leaves room for imagination and personalisation, yet also starts with a solid functional purpose," explained Loing.Published 20 November 2008
