More power for Nissan Pulsar hatchback

New 1.6-litre engine provides more spritely performance for the hottest Nissan Pulsar hatchback

The Nissan Pulsar range has been given sporting intent with the introduction of a new 1.6-litre turbocharged engine.

The Nissan Pulsar 1.6 DIG-T 190 is available in three trim levels, offers a 0-62mph time of 7.7 seconds and comes with a range of suspension upgrades designed to deliver a sportier drive.

Nissan says the way the new engine delivers its power means it can accelerate strongly from low engine speeds, making it easier to drive quickly. Despite the 187bhp produced, Nissan says the new model can return up to an average of 49.5mpg. CO2 emissions of 134-139g/km mean it'll cost you £130 in annual road tax.

The car's power steering has been retuned to provide sharper responses and the suspension has been recalibrated to be sportier while maintaining ride comfort. The bodyshell itself has been stiffened and the car's electronic stability control system has been tweaked.

The DIG-T 190 engine is available in Acenta, n-tec and Tekna trim, but features a number of upgrades not present with other engines. These additional features include new alloy wheels (17-inch on Acenta and n-tec, 18-inch on Tekna) in a two-tone black and silver finish, as well as black-edged headlights and a chrome exhaust pipe.

Inside, DIG-T 190 models are fitted with a different dashboard trim panel and white stitching on the steering wheel. Tekna models have leather seats.
