2016 Nissan Pulsar driving impression
The 2016 Nissan Pulsar won’t make some revolution in driving experience, but there are some advantages and lacks which are noticed. Comfort in high speeds is excellent, which couldn’t be said for lower speeds. So, this car is made more for open roads, than for city cruising or country terrains. Handling is secure and grip level is decent. On the other side, steering is not so bright. Company could add something more accuracy to it. Another advantage is quit cabin, although it is mainly motorway vehicle. Even at high speed and bumpy road, engine delivers power and stays quiet.
