The boxy Nissan Roox showed itself at Tokyo. Measuring 3.4 metres long and 1.7m high the minicar should appeal to the no-frills fraternity.

Nissan's Roox is 3.4m long, almost 1.5m wide and 1.7m high. Not the biggest car out there by any stretch of the imagination. Nevertheless, Nissan claims it's the "most spacious" in its class. The boxy shape is ideal for loading and utility, storage spaces are abundant, including a beverage cooler in the upper glove box (cubby hole) as well as a storage bin under the front passenger seat. It also has a rear sliding door for easy ingress and digress.

The Roox might not win any beauty contests but it should get its owners from A to B in a relatively comfortable environment. No engine or performance figures are available. Hopefully they will be within the next few weeks in anticipation of the car's December launch in Japan.
