Comfort Levels

I remember finding our 2009 Cube 1.8 S' driver's seat rather uncomfortable. The 2010's seemed better, though it doesn't appear to be different, aside from the fabric. Another editor, who took the Krom on a longer trip, was unimpressed: What was soft on a short drive translated to unsupportive over the long haul. As before, front passengers wanted an inboard armrest; only the driver's seat has one.

The Cube has an edge over the xB and Soul in one comfort aspect: ride quality. It soaks up bumps well, which gives it another advantage on pockmarked city streets. Likewise, even though the Krom is almost an inch longer than other Cubes, it's 4 inches shorter than the Soul and roughly 10 inches shorter than the xB, which makes it good for small urban parking spaces. The turning diameter is 33.4 feet, tighter than the Soul and xB, both of which are more than 34 feet.
