Packed with advanced technology and offering sector-leading levels of cabin space, the stunning five-door hatchback has been borne from Nissan’s commitment to innovation and excitement and distills those two now familiar Nissan qualities into a stylish new package.
Its arrival will further strengthen Nissan’s outstanding product portfolio, offering traditional C-segment buyers an alternative to the successful Qashqai crossover, and will open the brand to a new and wider audience.
And a highly competitive and flexible pricing structure has been developed to ensure the latest addition to the Nissan line-up makes a big impact with customers.
From launch, Pulsar will be available in four familiar grades – Visia, Acenta, n-tec and Tekna – giving buyers the ability to easily choose a model that best suits their lifestyle and their budget.
The entry level Visia, priced from £15,995, is well equipped and features an array of standard equipment typically only found on higher specification rivals, including a 5” colour screen, steering wheel mounted controls, Bluetooth and air conditioning.
Meanwhile, the n-tec, which starts at £18,995, adds large 17” alloys, privacy glass and Nissan’s signature LED lights. It also offers two much sought after features – a helpful colour reversing camera and NissanConnect 2, a state-of-the-art infotainment system offering full smartphone integration, Google® Send-to-Car and access to a wide variety of useful and informative apps.
Finally, the range-topping Tekna, priced from £20,345, adds further Nissan Safety Shield Technologies including Forward Emergency Braking, Moving Object Detection, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning for the ultimate in passenger protection.
Customers will have the choice of two new engines – a 1.2-litre DIG-T petrol unit and a 1.5-litre dCi – with either manual or Xtronic automatic transmissions for the perfect blend of performance and efficiency.
The petrol powerplant punches above its weight with an output of 115PS and 190Nm of torque, while the 1.5-litre dCi commonrail diesel unit generates 110PS and 260Nm of torque. An even more powerful 190PS, 240Nm 1.6-litre turbocharged petrol engine will join the range early in 2015.
