The Nissan Pulsar is most notably known for being a value family car. Leaning into the recent market demands, it blends function with space. On paper you’d be forgiven for thinking you’re reading about the Qashqai, both cars offer the same appeal to the busy active family. The similarities do not stop there, a quick look at the interior and you’ll see they are almost identical, in fact, the Pulsar has been dubbed an SUV without being an actual SUV

As we’ve come to expect in recent years, every variation of this car comes with air-conditioning and cruise control as standard. Being a family car, arguably the most important feature is safety, and Nissan doesn’t disappoint. The Pulsar scored 5 stars when tested by the Euro NCAP, with this, the enhanced emergency city braking (on the more expensive models) and lane departure warning, its drivers can feel safe on the school run or on long-distance motorway journeys.

There’s a good choice of engines, including the 1.5-liter turbodiesel, and 1.2-liter petrol, where these are limited, it allows the car to appeal to its intended user and subsequently its intended use.

Nissan did bring out a 1.6-liter petrol engine, which critics agreed was essentially neither one thing nor another and sales were predictably low. It has an enormous boot for the size of the car and great internal space.

Its predecessor debuted in Japan in 1978, and between this year and 2000 it was named ‘Bluebird Sulphy’, elsewhere it was branded the Tilda. The Tilda was withdrawn in 2014 and replaced by the Pulsar. Nissans attempts to boost the Tilda's sales by replacing it with a new model didn’t pay off and they ended up discontinuing it after just 4 years on 12th September 2018. The lack of sales was predominantly blamed on the market shift to SUVs for families rather than the smaller family car, which meant it lost out to its slightly larger rival, the Quashqai.
