Nissan has launched its latest five-door hatchback, the Nissan Pulsar in Thailand, which was first showcased at the 2011 Beijing Auto Show. The Nissan Pulsar, which is essentially the hatchback version of the new Nissan Sylphy has replaced the Nissan Tiida in the Thai market.
Though the C-Segment hatch is 320mm shorter than the Sylphy sedan, it still rides on the same 2,700mm wheelbase, which translates into enough leg room space in the rear.
Tagged as the premium sports hatch in the Thailand market, the Pulsar has been packed with a number of features such as bi-xenon projector headlamps, 17-inch wheels, cruise control, Bluetooth, keyless entry and reverse camera.
Powering the Nissan Pulsar, is a 1.6-litre C-VTC engine that produces 116PS of max power and 154Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated only to a CVT, while an option of a manual transmission is not being offered. The Nissan Pulsar is currently rated at 776,000 Thailand baht and will soon make its way across other markets in Asia.
Though the Nissan Pulsar may never see the light of day in the Indian market, its bigger sibling the Nissan Sylphy is expected to launch in the country sometime this year. In the Indian market, the Nissan Sylphy will be positioned between the Sunny and the Teana and compete with the likes of the Corolla, Laura, Jetta, etc.
