Nissan Pulsar vs Qashqai 1.2T

Recommended Posts

As above, from the brochures both seem to be using the same engine. If that is the case, does that mean the Pulsar will be better in acceleration and fuel efficiency ?

I m also thinking in this direction...then again Nissan cant be so stupid to come out with another model to compete or kill off Qashqai. Thought qq was one of their best selling models.

I think they don't mind if you pick a qq or pulsar.

 

As long as you pick one as the margin for both

 

cars is very good.

Gentle reminder: It's not a Nissan GTR.

Since Singapore car buyers are a practical bunch why not ask more relevant questions?

 

Hatchback cars are generally not popular in our car buying trend becos it lack a boot. And both QQ and Pulsar are basically hatchbacks how will they serve a family of ppl well?

 

A car with raise ride height is easier for older folks to get in and out of the car. If your family has elderly passengers the QQ will be ideal.

 

Talk about practical and useful stuff. FC is highly dependanton the driver and the route the driver uses daily. FC figures are not to be taken very seriously becoz they are never accurate. Acceleration for family cars are about the same. That 1 or 2 secs difference doesn't win you a trophy. It doesn't give you the GTR feel. Focus on the stuff that suit your wants and needs.

 

Sometimes I feel that videos that promote cars make ppl go crazy over some pointless things. Like as if you drive on a track or circuit daily. You cup corner like that guy in the youtube video? Does it matter Car A is 0.5 secs faster dan Car B on a track? Hello, you are driving on Singapore roads. They even have a leader board that shows what cars go faster around a track. Ask yourself, what purpose does it serve?

Who cares? It's whether you like the look of the car or not. 0.5km/L FC? That's not even significant enough to be measurable.

Test drive and see for yourself lor. By right should be similar or fairly close.

 

Pulsar is a regular hatchback. Qashqai is crossover, so it taller ride height, and more headroom inside, plus perhaps slightly bigger boot. Both cars cater to different groups of people. Driving wise both should be about the same.

part of the manufacturer strategies I guess. like already mentioned, to cater for different segment (referring to different packaging). not many buyer really looking into whether inside engine same or not. even it's the same, so what?

 

you often hear comments like 'xxx so common', 'you see so many xxx on the road', 'whenever you turn your head you can easily spot 1 or 2 on the road'...

but you seldom hear people staying away from a model because sharing the same engine [:)]

I find Pulsar reminds me of back then Latio Sports, the interior space and boot space almost the same. So if you like Latio hatchback, then you will also like this Pulsar. Lol.

Thanks for all the knowledgeable input on what are the equivalent can compare with, but whatever it 'should' be, can we come back to the topic?

Can we just take this thread like I prefer apple to orange and why?

Nissan 1.2L Pulsar vs Nissan 1.2L Qashqai, hatch vs crossover.

Perhaps TS can share more of your criteria, assuming that you started this thread is because you have shortlisted and torn between which of the 2 to get.
