Presenting the new Nissan Pulsar
Nissan has released new information of its new compact hatchback model, Pulsar, which -in combination with Qashqai– are expected to further strengthen the brand’s position in the category.
Drawing design inspiration and technology from the new Qashqai, Nissan has unveiled its new compact hatchback model, which goes by the name Pulsar. In this way, Nissan has decided to reposition itself in a key category of compact cars, with a conventional hatchback body, which aims to infiltrate the mighty German and Japanese competition. So in conjunction with compact crossover Qashqai, the brand further strengthens its position in the market, significantly expanding the its target group.
The new Nissan Pulsar is fully integrated into the company’s new design identity, as shaped by the Qashqai and X-Trail. Drawing, then, its inspiration by the company’s crossover models, Pulsar has larger-than-usual wheels, a waistline in a cone’s shape and the great profile.
Thanks to the longest wheelbase in its class (2,700 mm), Pulsar proves more spacious than many older models, as shown by the 692 mm of the space between the knees of the rear passengers and the seats. That spaciousness is combined with reasonable exterior dimensions (a length 4,385 mm), which gives Pulsar important civic usability.
Under the hood of the new Nissan Pulsar is the turbo petrol engine 1,2 DIG-T, which gives power of 115 hp, while there is also the motor oil 1.5 liter dCi, which produces 110 horsepower and 260Nm of torque. In addition to their high efficiency, Pulsar’s motors are great for their low CO2 emissions, that are less than 95 g/ Km. The new compact Nissan model will be offered in versions with the automatic transmission of the company.
The new Nissan Pulsar is equipped with a number of useful technologies that promote comfort and safety for the driver and passengers. The security system of Nissan’s Safety Shield has an impact, consisting of a toolbox of technologies and systems, which combine to provide a safety net for the driver and passengers. Among the systems offered in the new Pulsar are the emergency braking system (Forward Emergency Braking), the Moving Obstacle Detection System that is of great use, the Lane Departure Warning, which informs you when changing lanes in a quick way and, finally, the Blind Spot Warning. Moreover, the second generation system of NissanConnect has been used, giving you the chace to connect it with smartphones, the Google Send-to-Car feature and access to numerous applications. Finally, like Qashqai, the use of technology LED headlight has been chosen.
