About the Pulsar

The Pulsar is yet another model in Nissan’s collection that has a long history going back decades. It was first created and marketed as a subcompact car back in 1978, continuing on to 1995 when they released a new model, the N15 as a compact rather than a subcompact car. In 2013, the B17 and C12 models were released, a sedan and a hatchback respectively.

The modern Nissan Pulsar C12 shares a close connection (and even some resemblance) to the Nissan Tiida. In fact, Pulsars sold in Australia were rebadged Nissan Tiidas. The European market received an updated version, the C13 in 2014 badged as the Nissan Pulsar. It only had a short production run in Europe from 2014 to 2018, but continues to be made and sold in the Chinese market where it does quite well.

The original N10 model from 1978 was built as a replacement for the Nissan Cherry, and actually shared some similarities with it. The model even demonstrates design hints from models like the VW Golf and VW Scirocco from that time. It was boxy and came as a 3- or 5-door hatchback.

Over the years, the Pulsar evolved into a compact sedan, rounding off the square edges during the 1990s, and then by 2013-2014 the C-series models started to arrive. The latest iteration, the C13 (released in 2014) uses a 1.2L gasoline 4-cylinder engine with turbo, or a 1.6L turbocharged version. There’s also a 4-cylinder 1.5L Renault K9K diesel engine option.

The higher trim levels were quite well kitted out inside, even with a somewhat spartan interior overall. The gear shifter and center stack included piano black finish trimmed in chrome, and there was a 5.5-inch infotainment system with a lot of buttons and dials.

In the end, declining sales saw the Pulsar discontinued in 2018 but as we mentioned it is still popular in China, but there it is badged as a Nissan Tiida.
