The Nissan Pulsar is a modern family hatchback which competes directly with the likes of the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf. It offers frugal petrol and diesel engines and both passenger and boot space is competitive next to rivals. Trim levels are also well equipped and even basic trim Pulsar cars come with numerous welcome luxuries. Considering both the quantity and quality of the competition, the Pulsar is a good effort by Nissan. If you’d prefer a more original choice of family car compared to the current norm, then the Pulsar should be considered a strong contender.
