Nissan brings technology, style and sector leading space to the compact car segment with the new Nissan Pulsar hatchback in Europe.

22 May 2014 | International News : France

Using the same design approach and thought process that produced the Qashqai, X-Trail and Note, the European arm of Nissan is expanding its product portfolio once more with the Pulsar hatchback. The Pulsar bears signature Nissan trademarks such as a V-motion grille and boomerang shaped lighting signature. The car was designed and engineered for Europe and will be built at Nissan's production facility in Barcelona, Spain.

The LED headlamps - first introduced on the Qashqai and X-Trail - draw 50 percent less power than conventional bulbs, and provide a distinctive visual signature
Combining a gallant design, technical innovations and interior space, Nissan believes the new Pulsar brings a new dimension to the European compact car segment, offering all the familiar Nissan qualities in a new package.

The new Pulsar offers a wide number of safety features usually reserved for premium or luxury models including the marque's advanced Safety Shield - essentially a suite of systems and technologies which offer a fully comprehensive 'safety net' for drivers.

Among the systems offered are Forward Emergency Braking, Moving Object Detection, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning.

The Pulsar also features Nissan's second generation Nissan Connect system, which offers a range of novelty features including full smartphone integration, Google Send-to-Car and accessibility to a wide variety of apps.

Through the Pulsar, Nissan offers a wide range of turbocharged engines starting with the 1.2-litre DIG-T powerplant, which provides 113bhp of power while a higher 187bhp rated 1.6-litre petrol engine will join the range early next year. The 1.5-litre dCi diesel lump generating 108bhp and 260Nm of torque will also be available in the range.

The new Pulsar engines offer adequate performance levels and deliver emissions lower than 95g/km and are linked to an advanced XTronic automatic transmission.

The long 2,700mm wheelbase and clever packaging has resulted with better rear leg and shoulder room than its sector rivals. With 692mm of rear knee room, Nissan believes the Pulsar offers more space than several compact executive cars. Moreover, a compact footprint of 4,385mm makes it easier to park in tight urban environments like Singapore.

The new Pulsar hatchback goes on sale in Europe from Autumn 2014.
