Models

There are three generations of Nissan Cube available as shown below. All generations of the Cube have been highly successful in Japan, in particular the Z11. This success was not shared in overseas markets when the third series was made available in the U.S.A. and some parts of Europe. It was withdrawn from sale in these markets shortly after. Sadly, in March 2015 Nissan announced that there were no plans to release a fourth generation of Nissan Cube. The Z12 remains on sale in Japan only.

Nissan Cube Z10 Z11 Z12 Model Timeline

Both the Z11 and Z12 generations are currently available for import to Australia. The following models are eligible for compliance:

  • 2002 - 2005 Z11 1.4L Cube or Cube Cubic (Automatic only)
  • 2005 Z11 1.5L Cube (Automatic or CVT)
  • 2005 - 2008 Z11 1.5L Cube Cubic (Automatic or CVT)
  • 2008+ Z12 (all models, including e4WD)

All other models are not technically eligible for compliance. That said, it has been confirmed that there are a number of Z11 e-4WD models that are registered in Australia, having made their way through compliance as a different model.

Z11 Model Lifecycle

The Z11 model range available in Japan evolved over the car's lifespan of 6 years, with a two facelifts - mid-2005 "circle face" with updated front and rear end treatments and importantly the introduction of the new 1.5L model. In January 2007 "oval face" was released, with updated front and rear end treatments and other minor revisions. Please read on for a more detailed overview of all models available over the Z11 model lifecycle. Below timeline shows models grouped by 'level' colour, with darker shades indicating 1.5L.
