In Japan, Nissan's iconic Cube has always been a great value proposition. Long story short, you get a lot of design for not a lot of yen. 2009 saw the release of the Cube in America, and for just $13,990 you can scoot around town in a funky, boxy, fun car. However, you can not listen to satellite radio or jam out on your iPod for that low price. You have to skip up two trim levels to the $16,790 Cube SL, which comes equipped with both satellite radio and iPod connectivity. Audio driving pleasure has its (nearly $3,000) price. Oddly, the Versa-based Cube is actually cheaper to get with satellite radio and iPod connections than the Nissan Versa, though by just a few hundred dollars.
