GALLERY: Nissan Pulsar Review

Its strong points include the spacious interior, which can shames larger cars from the class above, decent standard equipment levels, and a full-house of safety kit that delivers an impressive five-star safety rating. The downsized engines only offer adequate performance, but they are economical.

W hen  Nissan  launched the original  Qashqai  in 2007, it said it no longer needed a conventional family car. That turned out to be false, particularly where business fleet operators were concerned, and so Nissan has returned to this hotly contested sector of the market with the Pulsar.

The N10 model Pulsar, introduced in May 1978, replaced the earlier Cherry F-II internationally, and benefited from the engineering efforts of the Prince Motor Company which developed the Nissan Cherry before the company merged with Nissan in 1966. It retained the rack-and-pinion steering of the Cherry, as well as the independent suspension with coilover struts in front and coil sprung trailing arms at the rear. It retained the Cherry name in Europe and many other export markets, even being sold as the "Cherry Europe" in some markets such as Belgium to separate it from the Cherry F-II which remained on sale for a while. The "Cherry"-badged version was first introduced at the Dutch AutoRAI show in February 1979 and went on sale shortly thereafter. The Pulsar was a subcompact car to augment the Sunny sedan. An unusual styling feature for the car was its long nose, which was due to Nissan envisaging that the car would also be built a with longitudinal rear-wheel-drive layout for developing markets; however, only front-wheel-drive models were actually built. At the time of introduction, the Pulsar only had a four-door fastback-styled sedan bodywork, and either a 1. 2- or a 1. 4-liter engine. The two-door and the coupé arrived in September 1978. Many export markets also offered a 1. 0-liter option, with 45 PS (33 kW) while the 1. 2 offered 52 PS (38 kW).
