NISSAN Pulsar review

NGC verdict 12.07.2015

After phenomenal success in the sporty 'crossover' market with the Qashqai, Japanese car maker Nissan has gone back into the medium size family hatchback market; think VW Golf, with the Pulsar after a nine year gap. Entry level models are particularly good value and Nissan has a good reputation for reliability.

If you wanted to be toffee nosed you could say the Pulsar is unremarkable in almost every way; but safe, consistent and economical is fine for most folk and the Pulsar is more spacious and practical than a Golf. Diesel makes most sense for company car users because of low official CO2 emissions.
