Review Summary
The Nissan Pulsar fills a hatchback niche that was left vacant when Nissan first introduced the Qasqhai crossover.

Review Summary
The Nissan Pulsar is spacious and quiet and has a well equipped interior. It's decent to drive and offers good value for money.

Review Summary
What the Pulsar does well is offer occupants a refined, polished and, crucially, spacious cabin, plus a generous level of equipment. If convenience, ease of use, space and looks are a priority, the Pulsar is has to ignore.

Review Summary
The Nissan Pulsar family hatchback is spacious and refined, but it’s a bit lacking in the fun department.

Review Summary
The family hatchback market is an incredibly hard one to crack. The Pulsar certainly doesn’t have the interior or driving standard of the Golf or Focus, but when you hold it against what the carmaker claims to be its rivals, the i30 or Auris, it is a very capable model.

Review Summary
While the Nissan Pulsar name may be unfamiliar in the UK, this model heralds the Japanese brand's return to the mid-size family hatchback class for the first time since the demise of the Almera back in 2006.

Review Summary
If space is your number one priority then the Nissan Pulsar is worth a look, particularly when you also factor in the high levels of standard specification and low running costs. However, in other areas it falls a fair way short of the best models in this class, which offer classier interiors and superior driving dynamics.

Review Summary
By doing nothing disagreeable, the Pulsar is worthy a middling three stars and passing consideration among a mass of options.

Review Summary
A perfectly able family hatchback that brings absolutely nothing new to the sector. Why, Nissan?
