Nissan has introduced this week the Euro-spec Pulsar which wants to go up against the Golf, Focus and other similar models in this segment. The vehicle is 4385mm long and boasts a 2700mm wheelbase which they say has given the model a best-in-class rear legroom as well as shoulder room. It comes with a wide array of assistance and safety systems like moving object detection, lane departure warning, blind spot warning along with forward emergency braking. Moreover, the Pulsar also comes with a second-gen NissanConnect system.
In terms of motorization, clients will be able to order the car with a 1.2 DIG-T gasoline engine delivering 115 PS or with a more economical 1.5 dCi outputting 150 PS and a peak torque of 260 Nm allowing the Japanese hatchback to have CO2 emissions of 95 g/km. Sometime next year, Nissan will introduce a hotter Pulsar powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine rated at 190 PS. These motors are coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission while for more money there’s an optional continuously variable transmission.
