Engines

1.6 DiG-T
Nissan’s 1.6-litre turbo petrol is punchy and doesn’t command a huge premium over the DIG-T 115, but like that engine it doesn’t have much low-end shove. It’ll cost you a bit more to run, than the DIG-T 115, too. If you’re regularly carrying lots of luggage or passengers, however, its extra pull might prove useful. Only offered with a six-speed manual.
1.5 dCi
The 1.5-litre diesel, which comes with a six-speed manual gearbox, offers up decent pull and makes a good choice for company car drivers, thanks to its low emissions and high claimed economy figures. Private buyers will be better off with the more refined DIG-T 115, however.
1.2 DiG-T
The entry-level 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine is a really good choice in the Pulsar. It’s quiet, smooth, economical and performs well enough, but does feel flat just above idle. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, but you can have it with Nissan’s Xtronic CVT automatic.
