Spy Photos: New Nissan Cube in Los Angeles?

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?

I was down on Abbot Kinney today and a Nissan Cube turned by Abbot's Habit. It was sort of this color and it had a Nissan badge on the front and the Cube name on the back.

There was a wrap around back to side window on the left side and a pillar on the right.

It was a dude driving and it was a lefthand drive car.

I came home to see what the cube was all about and all I could find were old articles saying it's coming to the US.

Sorry, I didn't take any photos like a bonehead. Looked kind of cool. Sorta Scionish.
