Cube & Cubic

The Z11 Cube comes in two basic body styles - standard 'Cube' (5-seater) and the 'Cube Cubic' (7-seater). While the differences are hard to spot to the uninitiated, comparing side-by-side will show that the 7-seater is slightly longer. This was done by extending the overall length and wheelbase of the vehicle by 170mm. The idea of the Cubic was first raised during design finalisation in 2001, however, agreement was made to initially make the car available as 5-seater only. Due to overwhelming popularity of the 5-seater model, the Cubic model was launched on September 3, 2003.

For launch, the Tokyo Nissan Ginza gallery opened the "Cube Cubic Cafe" in collaboration with "Cafe Apuremidi". Free tea service was offered to the first 333 people each day between September 3 to September 23. This was accompanied by live performances from acoustic guitarist Kotaro Oshio and other popular artists. There was also a special "Nissan Gallery Original Glass coaster" given to the first 30 people across 5 of the largest dealerships in Japan.

Cubic is 200mm longer
 

Grilles

Through the life of the Z11 Cube, there were dozens of diferent grilles to choose from. Some were only available on special models such as the popular 'Rider' model, whilst others were optional parts for any grade of Cube.

Headlights

One of the key differences to distinguish between model years of the Z11 Cube is the headlights. In addition, Xenon HIDs were available throughout the Z11 model lifecycle. These were an expensive option! In addition, Nissan offered optional chrome trim for all models.
