Nissan has revealed Australian pricing for its upcoming Pulsar Hatch line-up, on sale from June 1.
The range will be offered with four trim grades, kicking off with the $18,990 ST and topping out with the top-shelf SSS auto at $31,740.
Nissan will also offer a stripped-out $24,990 ST-S version of the SSS, offering fewer features but the same turbocharged engine.
Engines And Transmissions
Depending on specification, the Pulsar Hatch range will be offered with two petrol engine options, along with six-speed manual or CVT automatic transmissions.
In the ST and ST-L models is Nissan's 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine, producing 96kW and 174Nm of torque.
A six-speed manual is standard in both models, while the familiar X-Tronic CVT auto is available as an option.
For now, specific fuel consumption figures are not available, although the same engine lists around 6.7 to 7.2 l/100km in the Pulsar sedan model.
The mid-spec ST-S and top-shelf SSS models are powered by a turbocharged 1.6 litre engine, delivering 140kW and 240Nm of torque.
As with the ST and ST-L, these models can be had with a six-speed manual transmission or the X-Tronic CVT auto.
Standard features with the entry ST model include 16-inch alloy wheels, cloth trim, cruise control, Bluetooth phone connectivity and four-speaker audio with MP3 compatibility and aux-in, steering-mounted audio controls, power windows and central locking with remote keyless entry.
Standard safety features include Vehicle Dynamic Control, anti-lock brakes and electronic brakeforce distribution with brake assist.
Upgrade to the ST-L and there's front fog lights, a rear spoiler, leather-accented steering wheel, 'premium' cloth seat trim, a 4.3 inch colour display, six-speaker audio with USB/iPod connectivity and a rear centre armrest.
The mid-spec ST-S adds the SSS' turbocharged engine, along with 17-inch alloy wheels.
In the top-shelf SSS, there's the same turbo engine and 17-inch alloys, along with a sports body kit, automatic Xenon headlights, 5.8 inch touchscreen display, satellite navigation, rear-view camera, Bluetooth audio streaming, leather-accented seat trim, dual-zone climate control, intelligent keyless entry and push-button engine start.
The Pulsar Hatch range will hit Australia in early June.
