Nissan Pulsar

Nissan Pulsar review

Review continues below...

The Nissan Pulsar is a family hatchback that’s designed to appeal to those seeking a straightforward, no-nonsense car.

A family car like this one has to be good at everything, from the school run or work commute to coping with holiday baggage. There’s an array of talented cars to choose from in this hugely competitive class, however, including the Audi A3 and the VW Golf, but the Pulsar certainly merits consideration. It’s spacious, decent to drive and great value for money – both as a private or company choice.

Read on over the next few pages to get our in depth impressions of the Pulsar, and to see how it compares with those popular rivals in this hotly contested class, and also to find out which trim and engine options we recommend.
