Nissan launches sporty DIG-T engine for Pulsar

Nissan's Pulsar is set to get pulses racing with the launch of a new, range-topping DIG-T engine.

Available to order now with three trim grade options, the new punchy 189bhp turbocharged petrol engine has been developed alongside a range of styling, suspension and chassis upgrades that deliver a sportier driving experience.

The Pulsar 1.6 DIG-T is the sportiest and most powerful engine to be offered in the range  further broadening Nissan's appeal in the hatchback market. It develops maximum torque output of 240Nm and can accelerate from 0-62mph in 7.7secs.

While the 1.6 DIG-T engine has the firepower to match larger engines, its fuel consumption and emissions have not been compromised  a major advantage of Nissan's downsizing philosophy. With Nissan's motto 'more with less' in mind, the Pulsar DIG-T is capable of returning up to 49.5mpg and will emit just 134g/km of CO2 emissions.

Nissan has also engineered a new chassis set-up, designed to make the most of the extra performance on offer. The package of upgrades includes a new power steering configuration that has been fine-tuned to give more direct feedback and quicker responses. Front spring and damper settings have also been revised with increased stiffness and spring length to improve body control while maintaining ride comfort. New rear dampers and wider 18-inch wheels complete the dynamic package.

The engine is fully compliant with new Euro 6 standards and features a range of technical upgrades including a newly tuned traction control system, shorter gearing for sharper acceleration, low friction technologies and cooled exhaust gas recirculation.

Available in Acenta, n-tec and Tekna trim grades, all DIG-T models feature a number of upgraded items as standard. These include bespoke alloy wheels (17-inch on Acenta and n-tec, and 18-inch for Tekna) and a sportier headlamp design. At the rear, a chrome exhaust finisher is fitted to further enhance the sporty look and feel.
