I bumped this thread partly due to a Cube owner just signing on and also I think this is an interesting piece.

I also marveled at the funkiness of the xb, but the fact that it seems to also get good mileage is astounding to me. I guess it may not be a bad thing to make the next generation more interested in a small car than in SUVs.
