AutoExpress got the chance of driving the new Nissan Pulsar, ahead of its public unveiling during this year Paris Motor Show. The British magazine was impressed by the Japanese compact car, which Nissan considers being very important.
The 2014 Nissan Pulsar features a 2,700 mm (106.2 in) wheelbase and has an overall length of 4,385 mm (172.6 in). According to the Japanese officials, the 2014 Pulsar will provide the best rear legroom and shoulder room in its class.
Under the hood, the 2014 Pulsar is featuring a 1.2-liter DIG-T petrol unit which can deliver 115 horsepower. In early 2015, Nissan will offer a more powerful 1.6-liter unit which can deliver 190 horsepower.
Upon launch, the 2014 Nissan Pulsar will also come with the frugal 1.5-liter dCi diesel engine rated at 110 horsepower and 260 Nm peak of torque. All these engines will work in standard with a six-speed manual transmission, but on the option list, buyers will find a CVT.
