The 2009 Nissan Cube gets an EPA-estimated 28/30 mpg city/highway for the optional automatic transmission and 24/29 mpg for the standard manual.

There’s a recent surge of boxy/cube-like vehicles with the Cube and Kia Soul being introduced as competition to the already available Scion xB.  

The Cube’s mileage bests the competition with its automatic transmission; with the manual, it loses the top spot to the Soul and its 26/31 mpg.  

For a complete listing of the Cube’s mileage versus its competitors, see this KickingTires post.
