If you are a regular reader of Automobile Magazine, you know that we start each year by selecting our "of the Year" award winners. More than any other award, our Design of the Year causes confusion and provokes controversy. By choosing the Nissan Cube as our 2010 Design of the Year, this time around was no exception. The Cube is certainly no beauty queen - our own design editor Robert Cumberford called it "funny-looking" - but it has an undeniable presence and loads of charisma, and that character continues inside. The cabin is more roomy than its 156.7-inch overall length implies and the simple yet stylized interior is at once peaceful and functional.
