Nis­san turns in­no­va­tion to fam­ily car

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - MOTORS-SOUTHBUCKS -

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.
