Used Nissan Pulsar 2014-present review

What alternatives should I consider to a used Nissan Pulsar hatchback?

The Pulsar seems like good value, but you might want to look into rivals such as the Hyundai i30 and Kia Cee'd, which are often just as well equipped and come with long warranty periods to back up their quality claims.

The Kia Cee'd has a seven-year warranty, which is exceptionally long. It won’t cover all issues, particularly in the later years, but it's good to have that additional support. The Cee'd is relaxing rather than exciting to drive, but it's spacious and its diesel engines are particularly economical.

The Hyundai i30 has a slightly shorter warranty than the Cee'd, at five years, but that’s still two years longer than the Pulsar's. The diesels offer similar economy to those in the Cee'd, and the petrols are equally hushed.
