Nissan Pulsar

Recommended Posts

Mine was the 1.0 DX manual version.

 

This one:

 

http://www.torque.com.sg/3525/i-remember-my-pulsar/

 

Interior very spacious but very underpowered. Very popular back in 1983 & 1984. Sold like hot cakes.

 

I got mine brand new for only $27K. No COE at that time.

 

Also got my resale HDB 4 room flat near town for $55K at that time. Took only 10 year loan.

 

Gone are those good old days in Singapore.   :TT_TT:

back at one of the car shows at expo, they previewed us with the Pulsar on display. the interior is indeed with abundance of space!

 

Downside is its full of hard plastic.. making the car "feel cheap"..

 

IMO, should it be priced nearer to the note, i believe it's a value buy for people who needs the space and transport. [thumbsup]

Made in Spain. Buy lor.

 

By the way, what is the difference in performance between a 3 n 4 cylinders if both are 1.2 engine.

if u are comparing with the note's 3 cyl, that is either N.A or Supercharged. Most 3 cyl engines have a "rattling" noise which takes abit of getting used to. The Pulsar with a 4 cyl will have lesser vibrations comparing to a 3 cyl. That should make the ride less noisy.

My guess in terms of performance, the 3 cyl would be less powerful? But it should be more frugal on the fuel consumption during cruising.

Like that I will take a 3 cylinder anytime as FC is a concern to me. And my car load is usually two pax.

Pulsar is priced similar as C4 and Golf 1.2

 

Profit margin is very high, at $22K for every car sold, based on $50K COE.

 

Tan Chong shd give the Pulsar a pricing advantage, and buyers will be more willing to bite. Just nice, somewhere in between Note DiG-S and Qashqai 1.2 pricing.

 

At such pricing, I rather save $16k and get the Lancer at $86K.

The engine response is horrendous.

 

U stepped hard and it revved up and quickly drop rev again. U get what I mean?

Lancer comes in four speed auto. That is how it behaves, unlike CVT where rev is constant.

The lancer engine is probably unchanged. I remember test driving it in 2008 and I recall one uncle in the showroom calling it a motorboat engine lol.

2008 was using 1.5l engine.

 

But now using 1.6l engine.

 

But at this kind of pricing and made in Japan, cannot complain.

Yep I drove the 1.6 version. SLD plate.

 

Thought should be good.

 

It's not about the 4 speed auto. I have driven 4 speed auto which are much better.

 

It's the engine response and behaviour.

Indeed point a to point b bnb car MIJ this should be it. Mid 80 k

Every time I see a new lancer on the road I shake my head at the silliness (this is the mildest word I can think of to write here so as not to offend) of the owner. Edited by Nav14

Chris Tan seems very positive on the Pulsar. Even claims it drives better than the Civic Turbo. Wow....

Not surprised!

This is 10yrs old this year, all the changes are mainly cosmetic.

The whole platform are still the same as 10yrs ago.

But QQ 1.2 is under power, with the same engine as QQ, the Pulsar should be very nice to drive.

And from today ST review, equipment level are very high.

It is made for Europe market, not surprising on the handling.

This 1.6 engine are the same old 1.6 used since late 90s, just re-tuned and re-tuned many times to meet later emissions requirements.
