After the name, the first thing that struck you about the Nissan Pulsar was the car’s sheer size. Or, more accurately, lack of it. In pictures, the Pulsar looked to be about the size of a Toyota Corolla or maybe Nissan Stanza. But in reality it was more like a Honda Civic. The Pulsar NX replaced the long in the tooth Datsun 310 GX hatchback coupe. This time, Nissan’s planners decided to make the top of the line 310 replacement something more than a mere coupe version of the everyday hatchback sedan models.
