2013 Nissan Pulsar Hatch SSS – CarSales Video

2013 Nissan Pulsar Hatch SSS – CarSales Video


The Nissan Pulsar was recently relaunched
in Australia and since then it’s been welcomed back with open arms.
The new Pulsar is shaking up the small car market and this pocket rocket proves that
it’s been well worth the wait. This is the top of the range Nissan Pulsar
hatch SSS model. Everything about it oozes sport, style and
power. There’s the racy contours, the eye catching
rear spoiler, the prominent body skirts on all sides, the 17 inch sports alloy wheels,
LED stop lamps, the racy indicator lights, and the effortless cool of the embedded head
lights. All of which, is practically begging me to
take it for a drive. And there’s nothing better to get the pulse
racing than the Nissan Pulsar and a race track. Let’s put the pedal to the metal.
Currently propelling me at a significant rate is the 1.6L turbo charged engine.
With 6 speed transmission available in both the manual and CVT options, you can work the
pulsar exactly how you want to. But don’t let sporty exterior and considerable
power fool you into thinking it’s a gas guzzler. It’s more economical and environmentally friendly
than you may imagine. With a fuel efficiency of 7.7L per 100km and
low CO2 emissions. Just on the off chance that you don’t have
your own race track to take it for a spin, the ride and handling of the Pulsar have been
localised for Australian conditions. This is the next step in performance from
the other variants of the Pulsar and different to the Pulsar Sedan.
The interior feels very spacious for a small car, with the rear seats giving you extra
versatility. With a 60/40 split fold, giving you four different
seating combinations. Again a feature that was missing from the
Pulsar ST and TI sedan. Nissan Pulsar SSS comes with all the mod cons
that you would expect from a top of the range model.
Theres the intelligent key entry, push button start, bluetooth connectivity to allow hands
free calls, bluetooth audio streaming, and ports for a USB and ipod.
A 5.8inch display gives you significant screen size to check you’re heading in the right
direction with inbuilt sat nav. The screen also doubles as your rear view
reversing camera with distance guidelines. There’s also a multi-function drive computer
which gives you all the vital stats you need, fuel consumption, driving range, and outside
temperature. The Nissan Pulsar SSS also doesn’t scrimp
on safety. With 6 SRS airbags, ABS, traction control
and brake assist. The all new Pulsar hatch SSS. It’s an invigorating
drive from a pretty handsome model. All in all I’d say the Pulsar hatch SSS is
a pulsating drive. Think I got time for one more lap.

  1. Hold on carsales son, how much are you being paid by Nissan? By that script reading, I assume not too much. Hang on Nissan! Didn't you also remove your other SSS video that I also commented on?

  2. Hi all, this is an advertorial video undertaken with CarSales production team. @MelbStevo, this is the only advertorial video that we have done and we have not deleted any of your comments.

  3. I bought the 2000 model and love it, Nissan all these years and you come up with a 1.6 turbo. Very disappointing…… Why didn't you go a 2ltr Turbo to rival the other hatches. You offer nothing new except a slower car.

  4. 140kW/240Nm 1.6-litre direct-injection turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant, which produces 35kW/61Nm more power and torque than the naturally aspirated 2.0-litre of the last SSS
    Kerb Weight: 1304 kg = 107 kw/tonne
    Kerb weight 1142 kg. = 91.9 kw/tonne

  5. Kev I understand what your saying, but what I'm trying to say is that Nissan after 13 years have brought out a slower hatch compared to the current market. Look at the Mazda MPS, Ford Focus, WRX and the others all up there with performance 2ltrs. The SSS was something in its day, why they didn't bring it out with a 2ltr turbo so as to give it some grunt.
    Little disappointed to be honest, the Mazda seems the car of choice, top performance @190kw and great value.

  6. oh OK i see what you mean!

    I like the idea of the 1.6L though cause while its not the fastest it has good power and is economical as well.
