Nissan Kubistar

Nissan Kubistar: A Small Van with a Big Personality

The Nissan Kubistar is a small van that was produced by Nissan from 2003 to 2009. It is based on the first generation of the Renault Kangoo, a popular multi-purpose vehicle that was launched in 1997. The Kubistar shares the same body, engine, and features as the Kangoo, but has a different front end design and badge. The Kubistar was marketed as a practical, economical, and versatile van for small businesses and individuals who need a compact and agile vehicle for urban and rural driving.

The Kubistar was available in two body styles: a four-door panel van with no rear windows or seats, and a five-door leisure activity vehicle (LAV) with rear windows and seats that could be removed to increase the cargo space. The Kubistar had a wheelbase of 2.6 meters, a length of 4 meters, a width of 1.7 meters, and a height of 1.8 meters. It could carry a payload of up to 800 kilograms and had a load volume of up to 2.8 cubic meters. The Kubistar also had sliding side doors and asymmetric rear doors that opened up to 180 degrees for easy loading and unloading.


Engine and Performance

The Kubistar offered a choice of four engines: a 1.2-liter petrol engine with 60 horsepower, a 1.4-liter petrol engine with 75 horsepower, a 1.6-liter petrol engine with 95 horsepower, and a 1.5-liter diesel engine with 60, 70, or 80 horsepower. The diesel engine was the most popular option, as it was punchy, refined, and impressively frugal. It could achieve an average fuel consumption of over 50 miles per gallon and had a service interval of two years or 24,000 miles. The Kubistar had a five-speed manual transmission or a four-speed automatic transmission, depending on the model. It also had an optional four-wheel drive system for better traction and stability on rough terrain.

Features and Safety

The Kubistar came in two trim levels: E and SE. The E trim level included tinted windows, remote central locking, power steering, an airbag, a bulkhead, a rubber load mat, and interior wheel arch protectors. The SE trim level added electric windows, electric door mirrors, a CD player, a roof storage shelf, and anti-lock braking system (ABS). The Kubistar also had some optional features such as air conditioning, fog lights, roof bars, alloy wheels, and metallic paint. The Kubistar had a driver's airbag and side-impact protection as standard safety features. It also had an immobilizer and an alarm system to prevent theft.


The Nissan Kubistar was a small van that offered a lot of benefits for its size. It was practical, economical, versatile, and easy to drive. It was ideal for couriers, tradesmen, and families who needed a vehicle that could adapt to their needs. The Kubistar was discontinued in 2009 and replaced by the Nissan NV200, which is based on the second generation of the Renault Kangoo. However, the Kubistar still remains a popular choice among used car buyers who are looking for a reliable and affordable small van.
