Nissan's latest hatchback, the Pulsar – its first new model in nearly a decade – is a versatile and reliable family car that has something to offer everyone.
As well as the standard entry-level Pulsar, you can upgrade to higher specifications such as the Acenta, N-Connecta and Tekna trims. Upgrading your Nissan Pulsar to one of these higher specifications will give you access to additional features such as DAB digital radio, satellite navigation, and a 360-degree parking camera mounted on the roof, as well as alloy wheels between 16 and 18 inches and leather seating.
Technology and comfort
The Nissan Pulsar has been designed to be a high-quality family vehicle, and as such it features excellent build quality alongside robust materials. The driving position is easy to adjust for both reach and rake. The Tekna trim comes with leather seats (heated in the front), whilst the N-Connecta features lumbar support for the driver and front passenger. The entry-level Pulsar still makes controlling the car more comfortable for the driver, and includes feature such as steering wheel-mounted stereo controls.
Performance, engines, economy and efficiency
There is a selection of three engines to choose from when buying a Nissan Pulsar. If you favour a petrol engine, you can either have a 1.2-litre turbo with 113bhp, or a 1.6-litre unit which draws on 187bhp. The entry-level 1.2-litre engine should be powerful enough for most drivers, however, as it is capable of travelling from 0-60mph in just over ten seconds. A single diesel option is also available, and comes in the form of a 1.5-litre turbo diesel. Harnessing 108bhp, the diesel unit is the most economical choice, returning a fuel economy of 78.5mpg and emitting just 94g/km of CO2.
Safety and security
The Nissan Pulsar has been awarded a five-star crash-safety rating from Euro NCAP, meaning that it is one of the safest cars available on the market. A full complement of six airbags comes included as standard, as do a custom speed limiter and stability control. The Tekna trim also includes additional safety features such as the Safety Shield, which adds Forward Emergency Braking, blind-spot monitoring, a 360-degree parking camera, and a lane departure warning.
The Nissan Pulsar has clearly been designed to handle anything that can be thrown at it during the course of day-to-day life – that much is clear from the very first glance. The Pulsar is practical as well as stylish, favouring an understated design that takes cues from Nissan's popular Micra, including a narrow grille with chrome bars, and chic, angled headlamp casings to create an ideal look for the city and urban living.
