Nissan Australia has at last tacked the SSS badge to the rear of its Pulsar sedan, joining the ‘warm hatch’ that launched here in early 2013.

Originally due here in the second quarter of 2014, the warmed-up SSS sedan joins a now more affordable SSS hatch and a revised Pulsar range.

Buyers looking to step into a manual-equipped SSS from $25,990 for the hatch - down from $29,690 - and $26,990 for the sedan. Opting for an auto will see those prices creep up to $28,490 and $29,290 respectively.

Both are powered by the same turbocharged 140kW/240Nm 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine that already drives the hatch model.

Like the hatch before it, the sedan wears unique SSS styling elements and 17-inch alloy wheels. Rear parking sensors are also standard on both models.

The 2015 range also sees the SSS replace the Ti as the sedan range’s flagship model, bringing it in-line with the hatch range.

To that end, both body styles have now also dropped the ST-S model, with the lines now streamlined to ST, ST-L and SSS.

The entry ST hatch rises slightly in price to $19,990, matching the ST sedan, while the ST-L model in both lines drops in price to $20,990 for the hatch and $22,490 for the sedan.

The ST-L sedan picks up a 5.8 inch touch display (upgraded from 4.3 inch) with sat-nav, a reversing camera with on-screen guides and Bluetooth audio streaming.

ST and ST-L models are again powered by a 1.8 litre petrol four-cylinder engine, producing 96kW and 174Nm of torque.

All models are front-wheel-drive, and transmission choices include a six-speed manual or a new Xtronic CVT automatic.

Sales of the Pulsar range have slipped 18.3 percent year-to-date, notching up 2126 by the end of March, against 2601 for the same period in 2014.

The Pulsar’s showroom performance places it ahead of the Subaru Impreza (1053 YTD, although the WRX contributes 848 of its own) and the Honda Civic (1229), but well behind segment giants like the Corolla (11,672) and the Mazda3 (11,059).
