Well, the slow selling Nissan Cube is officially dead and it looks like Toyota is throwing in the towel on the xB and moving it to a conventional looking wagon/hatch design. I guess that leaves the Soul as the last box standing. Make mine a 2015 with heated/cooled nappa leather seats and Android-powered UVO system...

Nissan Murano Cross Cab, Cube Dead for 2015

Scion xB Said to Be Replaced By Toyota Auris Next Year
Not sad to see any of them go. The cube is even uglier that the iQ, so go figure...

Never been a fan of the xB, and the cross cab was a joke...:|

Yeah, the Cross Cab was the answer to a question no one had ever thought to ask until some drunken, sleep deprived Nissan designer asked, "What would happen if we combined a Nissan Murano with a '70s era Cadillac Eldorado convertible?"

+1, and Kia hit the nail on the head with the Soul. I tried to get my wife into one of those when we bought our Sorento. She didn't care for it...

I tried to convince her she would be the coolest Mom on the block if she had one, still didn't work...:(

2014 KIA SOUL receives J.D. Power apeal award for third consecutive year.
IRVINE, Calif., July 29, 2014 – Coming off its best-ever first-half sales performance in company history, the fun and funky 2014 Soul has received the J.D. Power Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) award for the third straight year in the Compact Multi-Purpose Vehicle segment. All new for the 2014 model year, the Soul sold an individual nameplate record 74,999 units in the first half of 2014.

“Since launching in 2009, the Soul has earned a devoted following thanks to its unique blend of attitude, style, technology and value,” said Michael Sprague, executive vice president of sales and marketing, Kia Motors America (KMA). “Now in its second iteration, the iconic Soul remains true to its roots while adding refinement both inside and out. Taking top honors in its segment for the third year in a row in the J.D. Power APEAL study is further verification that the Soul just keeps getting better.”

The J.D. Power APEAL study measures new-vehicle owners’ overall satisfaction with their vehicles in the first 90 days of ownership. The results are divided into 10 categories and weighted accordingly: exterior, interior, storage, audio, seats, heating and ventilation, driving dynamics, powertrain, visibility, and fuel economy.

The Honda Element was my favorite. Lots of room. The original XB was a fantasic conversion vehicle for the Handicap. Scion ruined it. The Cube was a cartoon design. Lots of my photograher friends own them, cause of they cargo capabilties. It drove really nice. I always like the Souls design. The new one is superior to the older model.
