Nissan’s answer to the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf has finally been revealed, and it’s a looker.

Powered by a 113 horsepower turbocharged 1.2L 4-cylinder gas engine or  a 1.5L diesel, the Pulsar borrows its initial powertrains from the Qashqai, which shares its Common Modular Family underpinnings. Later on, a boosted 1.6L engine making 187 horsepower (shared with the Juke) will arrive (and likely be the basis for a Nismo version). Fuel economy figures haven’t been released, but the diesel should emit a Prius-rivaling 95 grams of CO2 per km.

Interior space and wheelbase are said to be tops in its class, and the Pulsar will feature the latest in active safety systems as well. Fingers crossed for this one making its way over to North America. Wouldn’t this be a nice alternative to the Sentra?
