Japanese automaker Nissan has officially revealed the first images and details about a new five-door hatchback called Nissan Pulsar that was teased online a week ago. The new car marks Nissan’s re-entry in the highly competitive European C-Segment hatchback segment, since the Almera ceased production in 2006 and also marks the revival of the ’Pulsar’ nameplate that was originally used in 1978.

The all-new five-door hatch is built on Nissan’s new modular CMF2 architecture, which also underpins the European Qashqai and X-Trail. Design-wise, the resemblance between the Pulsar and its two big SUV brothers is striking. At the front, lies the V-shaped grille around the badge, strong shoulder lines and the angled headlights - that are identical to the Qashqai’s. Dimensionally, the Nissan Pulsar measures 4,385mm in length and 2,700mm in width, which according to Nissan makes the hatchback the best in its class when it comes to legroom and shoulder room. 

The car has been fitted with a long list of comfort and safety features such as blind spot warning, lane departure warning, moving object detection and forwards emergency braking. The Pulsar will also feature the second generation NissanConnect system that offers smartphone integration and access to a huge variety of apps. 

The range of engine options include, a 113PS 1.2-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine, a 187PS 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel engine that is rated at 108PS and 260Nm of peak torque. 

The Nissan Pulsar will be manufactured at the company’s newly renovated factory in Barcelona, Spain and is expected to commercially launch in Europe before the end of 2014. Once launched, the Nissan Pulsar will rival the likes of Volkswagen Golf, Ford Focus and the Vauxhall Astra.
