Since four years they stopped selling the Tiida ago the Japanese firm has endured in our country with a successful Qashqai but not a classic representative in the compact segment which solved now with the Nissan Pulsar which together with completely revamped crossover and X-Trail with the image of these you can help add an unknown number of sales for the brand.
The first compact Nissan to reach Spain was the Cherry (1985) that happened on Sunny (1989) and followed the Almera (1995) with two generations the first manufactured in Japan and the second in the UK. Three very different names but they all known elsewhere as Pulsar. A name that has a long tradition although in Spain the vast majority of them will sound again. In between one Tiida a concept of global car designed for all markets here do not achieve the anticipated success.
Nissan Pulsar Pero let's focus on the new Pulsar. A model manufactured in the Spanish plant Zona Franca in Barcelona. It is a compact five-door with 4.39 meters in length is between the longest in its class with few choices ahead as the Mazda3 with 4.46 or 4.42 Opel Astra and like the Mazda holds next to the biggest battle of them all with 2.70 meters. Not surprisingly this measurement is 5cm longer than the Qashqai and one in length with which it shares some structural elements. All this allows us to offer a space in their back seats record. Something that Opel Astra or Mazda3 fail to take advantage of both.
The Nissan Pulsar front seat space is also generous with a considerably larger and larger possibilities for adjusting the driving seat width. Even better if the sidewalk could lower positioned and supported in the upper half did not have much inclination; something that has not been welcomed by all drivers have tested the car.
For quality finishes only the top of the dashboard and doors exhibit fluffy plastic while Burr union between the lower parts of the center console not seek a nice touch. Front seat backrest adjustment lever rather difficult roulette precise adjustment of the cockpit while the rear seatback is split into two asymmetrical sections although not bring them down are flush with the trunk floor to create a surface load TV.
Nissan Pulsar 1.5 dCi Diesel engine which comes from Renault is also present in other compact as Mégane and Mercedes A180 CDI; although in the press feels slightly rough by a somewhat higher noise level at idle and vibration. He is a veteran and propeller 8-valve and although not as refined as the 1.6 dCi offers lower it and reduced consumption. The average number obtained by our Technical Centre is 5.1 l / 100 km far from the approved 3.6; which in practice is impossible to reproduce. Things cycle NEDC European approval which in future will be replaced by a globally harmonized. Nevertheless consumption in city is competitive to 4/10 of that obtained by e-HDi 308 and A3 Sportback 1.6 TDI Ultra two of the best. On the Road is situated in the middle to make the same difference of four tenths with the Audi but this measurement are all much closer together in their records. In terms of benefits acceleration runs enough for what we expect from its 110 hp but recovering lack pleased to use excessively long developments chosen change. Wanted to lower consumption and meet the standard of emissions Euro6 but hinder achieve a good balance and force them into the gear lever more regularly even to ride limited to 90/100 km / h in 5th instead sections of in 6th. The 1.2 DIG-T is more refined vibrates less and runs almost the same but not so sparing in consumption.
Nissan press it electric steering conveys enough information and accurate like change but when driven very quickly is missing better touch while the brakes meet sufficiency albeit in very demanding driving fatigued quite easily and fail to arrest notable distances. As happens with the Qashqai with which it shares many components offering good ride quality and a very refined rolling broken only by a noise level and vibration level above the 1.6 dCi with which we usually tested this crossover.
After an unprecedented success with his SUV Qashqai which has cornered the top of the ranking of sales in recent years. Nissan Pulsar with the ends of structuring its offering in the C segment with a traditional compact with a clear commitment to the economy simplicity and space to meet the classic client category; the new Qashqai which adds to the aesthetics and practicality versatility of its body crossover and X-Trail with a somewhat-more commercial approach camper that really higher load capacity modularity and the ability to have seven plazas. An option for every type of customer. It will triumph. for the other reviews about the newest cars visit here.
