2009 Nissan Cube
Montreal, Quebec – Nissan has unveiled the 2009 Cube, brand-new to the North American Market, and the completely redesigned 2009 370Z, available this spring, at the Montreal International Auto Show.
The Cube was originally released to the Japanese market in 1998, followed by the second-generation Cube in 2002. For 2009, it blends fashion and function, building on a non-traditional design with an improved confident look described as a “bulldog in sunglasses.” The wraparound side/rear window creates enhanced rear visibility.
“This third-generation Cube is dramatically rethought with a clever, comfortable and fun design,” said Ian Forsyth, director of corporate and product planning at Nissan Canada. “Cube is designed for people who imagine a life less ordinary. It has a small footprint but makes a big impression, exactly what buyers are looking for today.”
The 2009 Nissan 370Z is the sixth generation of the iconic Z sports car, and is lighter, more powerful than ever before, and offers enhanced handling, quality and style. The six-speed manual transmission offers the world’s first SynchroRev Match system, which provides the thrill of perfectly-matched downshifts to drivers of all abilities. The 370Z will be priced at $39,998.
Nissan also announced that its vehicle brand sales for the Quebec region were 22.2 per cent higher in 2008 than in 2007, and its share of the Quebec market is over six per cent, and improved by more than one per cent. Nationally, Nissan brand sales were up 7.5 per cent in 2008.
