The New Pulsar is Nissan’s answer to the family hatch-back range, it marks the rebrand and re-entry into what is most likely the most competitive car market, the family hatchback market. Here at West Way we are thoroughly excited about the new Pulsar, you also have the chance to win a family day out when you test drive the Pulsar before the 31st October !
So why buy the new Pulsar we ask? Let’s take a look at what the reviews have been saying so far…
“Nissan has taken all of its crossover know-how and used it to make the Pulsar a safe, spacious and surprisingly refined hatchback. Nissan’s return to the hatchback market has been worth the long wait.” – Auto Express
What is particularly important to note is the addition of Nissan’s Safety Shield system, this new system includes forward emergency braking, lane departure warning system which can detect people around the car and warn the driver if he drifts across lanes.
“The 1.2 petrol is better. It’s usefully nippier, and says smoother and quieter when you accelerate.” – WhatCar.com
With an abundance of technology to choose from, Nissan have also given you a choice of two engines, the 1.2-litre DIG-T petrol engine (mentioned above) comes with a six-speed manual gearbox and produces an adequate 113bhp. Alternatively if petrol isn’t for you, the 1.5-litre diesel dCi engine produces 108bhp, 78.5mpg and only 94g/km, which when compared to the petrol’s claimed figures of 56.5mpg, 117g/km the diesel is the more fuel efficient option. –
“The latter is impressively economical with a claimed 78.5mpg and CO2 of just 94g/km but both are refined and quiet on the move, giving decent performance when required.” – Honest John
A big talking point is the new Nissan Pulsar’s interior space. Parkers.co.uk we’re quick to say that:
“This wealth of room is especially evident in the Pulsar’s rear, with extraordinary amounts of legroom and plenty of space for three adults in the back.”
The Pulsar priced from £15,995 appeals to everyone, those who want a hatchback, or those who want the practicality of a Crossover but still long for the style of a Hatchback. As expected there are different models to choose from, the Visia comes fitted as standard with Bluetooth connectivity, air conditioning, 16-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, electric adjusting mirrors and a five-inch touchscreen infotainment centre. Other models (the Acenta, the N-Tec and the tree topping Tekna) include features such as Autonomous braking, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED daytime running lights, the Nissan Safety Shield technology and heated seats).
