Nissan expands its model lineup with the all-new family hatchback – the Pulsar. The automaker says it has used the same design approach that produced the Qashqai, X-Trail and Note.

The Nissan Pulsar was designed and engineered for Europe and will be built at the automaker’s production facility in Barcelona. It  brings “a new dimension to the C-segment by combining bold design, technical innovation and interior space,” Nissan said in a press release.

Despite the spacious cabin, the Pulsar retains its compact dimensions being just 4,385mm long.

The Nissan Pulsar features a range of accessible and useful technologies. Among the systems offered in the new Pulsar are forward emergency braking, moving object detection, lane departure warning and blind spot Warning.

It is powered either by a 1.2-liter DIG-T petrol engine that delivers 115 PS; a 1.5-liter dCi engine that produces an output of 110 PS; or by a 1.6-liter turbocharged petrol engine that generates 190 PS.
