NASHVILLE, Tennessee — The quirky Nissan Cube hatchback and Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet crossover convertible are being dropped from Nissan's 2015 model lineup, the automaker confirmed for Edmunds on Monday.

Slow sales are being blamed for discontinuing two of the quirkiest models in the Nissan lineup.

The 2015 Murano crossover will continue in the lineup and arrive at U.S. dealerships in late 2014. Pricing has not been announced.

The Cube, a boxy small car, competes with the 2014 Honda Fit, Kia Soul and Scion xB.

The unusual Murano CrossCabriolet has no real head-to-head competition, but aims to set the Murano apart from more mainstream vehicles, including the Ford Edge and Toyota Venza.

Edmunds described the CrossCabriolet as "a vehicle that looks like the result of some mix-up from the SUV and convertible assembly lines. But somehow, this genetically modified crossover SUV actually works out pretty well."

The 2014 Murano CrossCabriolet starts at $42,855, including an $860 destination charge. In comparison, the base 2014 Murano without the drop top starts at $29,390, including shipping.

The 2014 Nissan Cube starts at $17,710, including an $810 destination charge.

Edmunds says: Time to head to your Nissan dealer if you want to get your hands on the outgoing Cube or Murano CrossCabriolet.
