Over the weekend, the Autobloggers procured shots of an unidentified, right-drive Japanese vehicle, nabbed on a commercial shoot in downtown Los Angeles. After some deduction, the determination was the box-like utility wagon is neither the next Toyota xB, nor a new Honda Element. So what, pray tell, is this bo te blanche? How about the next-gen Nissan Cube? AutoWeek reported last year Nissan was weighing the potential for the front-drive Cube in the US market as a Scion competitor. While this car is slightly larger than the current, shagadelic Cube — and sports a new, likely more crashworthy front-end — its rear design work does look strikingly Nissaneque. Anyone? Anyone?
