The Nissan Pulsar
by Car Rentals 365 in Sydney
The Nissan Pulsar was one of Australia’s favourite cars during its heyday through the 1990s, and was even manufactured locally between 1983-93. Australia first saw the Pulsar nameplate attached to the N10 model in 1980 during that awkward phase where Nissan products wore Nissan and Datsun badges at the same time.
The Nissan Pulsar offers reasonable comfort thanks to relatively soft suspension settings. However, those settings also allow the body to tilt in corners more than many other small cars, which diminishes comfort in its own unsettling way.
Pulsar ST versions and the ST-L hatch receive a safety rating of Very Good. The addition of a reversing camera and other safety enhancements elevates the ST-L sedan and both versions of the Pulsar SSS to Excellent.
Automatic emergency braking, which is available on some small cars, is not offered on any Pulsar.
