Nissan turns innovation to family car
Nyears. Now, using the same design approach and original thinking that produced its crossovers, Nissan is expanding its product portfolio again with an exciting, all-new family hatchback challenger – the Pulsar.
Combining bold design, technical innovations and class leading interior space, the all-new Nissan Pulsar brings a fresh dimension to the C-segment, offering familiar Nissan qualities in a stylish new package.
The Pulsar’s introduction highlights Nissan’s ambition and desire to deliver intelligent design and technical innovation to the widest possible audience. Designed to appeal to a range of buyers, from D-segment downsizers to family motorists who have outgrown their B-segment cars, the Pulsar showcases Nissan’s design skills ISSAN’S passion for innovation and technology has seen it transform the family car landscape over the course of the last seven and introduces an array of in-car technologies – some which are new to the sector. With exceptional material and build quality, the Pulsar offers buyers a premium ownership and driving experience without premium prices.
Instantly recognisable thanks to its trademark Nissan V-motion grille, boomerang signature headlamp characteristics and bold, muscular curves, the Pulsar was designed for Europe and will be built at Nissan’s Barcelona production facility.
The Pulsar combines strong lines with outstanding detailing to create an elegant, athletic form.
The confident, premium approach continues inside, where high quality materials and clear design are perfectly integrated with Pulsar’s impressively high equipment levels.
Thanks to the longest wheelbase in the class (2,700mm) and clever packaging, the Pulsar offers more rear legroom and shoulder room than its sector rivals. Indeed, with 692mm of leg space – the Pulsar boasts more rear legroom than the average D-segment offering. Yet despite this, it retains a compact footprint (length 4,385mm), making it easy to park in tight urban environments.
As drivers have come to expect from Nissan, the new Pulsar is fitted with a range of accessible technologies designed to make the ride feel more confident and comfortable. Nissan’s reputation for introducing new-to-sector technologies has been strengthened with a number of features usually reserved for luxury models.
These include Nissan’s acclaimed Safety Shield system with Moving Object Detection, Lane Departure Warning and Blind Spot Warning.
Nissan’s Around View Monitor brings more advanced technology to the sector, as does the latestgeneration NissanConnect system that offers seamless integration with smartphones and full satellite navigation functions.
The Pulsar launches with two highly advanced engines – a 1.2-litre DIG-T petrol unit and a 1.5-litre dCi diesel. Both offer exceptional performance, economy and refinement, and integrate a host of fuel-saving technologies to help owners go further for less.
The new Pulsar range features four familiar trim grades: Visia, Acenta, n-tec and Tekna – with all four offering exceptionally high levels of standard equipment. All models come with air conditioning, five-inch Advanced Drive- Assist Display, alloy wheels and electric windows all-round.
Tyre Pressure Monitoring System, six airbags and Stop & Start system are also all fitted as standard across the range.
