Nissan Pulsar Overview

The Nissan Pulsar was initially classed as a subcompact car and then as a compact car in its later years. This vehicle was in production from 1978 to 2005 and has just made markets for 2013. The Pulsar name was not used in Europe or the UK and was mostly used in Japan and Australasia. This car was first introduced as a replacement for the Nissan Sunny and in 2007 the Nissan Tiida replaced the Pulsar. The latest version of the Nissan Pulsar, introduced in 2013, is a well built, good looking small car. They are comfortable cars, reasonably well equipped but they lack in drivability. The suspension and gearboxes leave a lot to be desired and overall there are better options on the market. Does this sound like your experience of the Pulsar?

Nissan Pulsar History

The Nissan Pulsar was first introduced in 1978 as a replacement for the Nissan Cherry. Before it was discontinued in 2005 when it was replaced with the Nissan Tiida, it was available over 6 different generations: 1st generation (1978-82), 2nd generation (1982-86), 3rd generation (1986-90), 4th generation (1990-95), 5th generation (1995-2000) and the 6th generation (2000-05). The Nissan Tiida replaced the void left by the Pulsar in 2007. The newly released 7th generation (2013-present) is only available in the Australian and New Zealand markets. This is the current version on the market.
