Kubik by Kimura. Style and substance in a minute package.
The 2nd generation of Kimura's Kei car, the Kubrik, debuted alongside the 2013 Kimura Auburn at the Tokyo Motor Show for the 2014 model year. You can get the small car with a choice of 2 engines, drivetrains, and transmissions. A N/A and turbocharged 659 cc Inline-4 with VVT and VVL are available with either FWD or 4WD and a 7-Speed DCT or 6-speed manual. 4 wheel independent suspension is standard on all models for comfortable cruising along with partially aluminium panels to let the already lightweight Kubik shed a few more kilos. Even with a tall roof, the Kubik remains steady through tight corners, with a very tight turning circle and stiff anti-roll bars preventing excessive body roll. Even with a short wheelbase, the Kubik is still capable of staying planted at high speeds thanks to months of meticulous suspension tuning.
As a departure from the previous, more adventure-focused Kubik, the new car has a more practical 5-door hatchback package as opposed to a 3-door. Along with the Auburn, the all-new Clear Sense™ infotainment system was introduced. A 6.5-inch touch screen which is standard on all trims, compatible with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The main theme with the Kubik was "geometrically cute." Thus, multiple shapes and textures were used through the cabin, with up to 5 different accent colors including red, white, grey, blue, and black available. Despite it's small size, many advanced safety features such as automatic braking, Lane Keep Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, and KimuraGuard™ are available. The exterior continues the cutesy theme with a blocky design that's lovable yet sophisticated. With nearly 1000 color combinations, you can truly personalize your own Kubik just the way you like it. You can change the side accent colors, roof and mirror colors, wheels, base car colors, grille colors, and even more to make your Kubik, well, yours. Prismatic headlights continue to be present in the Kubik, with a full LED setup available. The Kubik oozes style, but manages to stay sophisticated. It's charming, yet pragmatic. It truly is the definitive Kimura Kei car.
