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.

Importantly, the Pulsar Hatch enters as one of the sharpest-priced offerings in the small-car market, scraping in below the cheapest models in the Cruze, Corolla and Mazda3 line-ups.

 

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.

 

Features

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.
