NISSAN Australia has announced a Pulsar range reshuffle, headlined by the introduction of the long-awaited SSS sedan and trimmed down hatchback line-up.

The new SSS replaces the outgoing Ti as the top-tier Pulsar sedan and comes equipped with the same 140kW/240Nm 1.6-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine as the warmed-over Pulsar SSS hatch.

Priced from $26,990, before on-roads for the manual, and $29,290 for the automatic, the SSS sedan has all the equipment of the old Ti, along with a bodykit and rear-park assist.

But the sportier variant is $3000 cheaper in manual and $700 cheaper in auto guise when compared with the former flagship.

The Pulsar SSS hatchback also gets a $3800 price reduction from $29,790 to $25,990, after being on the Australian market for nearly two years.

The mid-spec Pulsar ST-L sedan is also cheaper, with a new price of $22,490 for the manual and $24,790 for the automatic, representing a saving of $1200. The ST-L also receives satellite navigation, reversing camera and Bluetooth audio streaming as standard.

Although the entry level Pulsar ST sedan remains unchanged, priced from $19,990 for the manual and $22,290 for the automatic, the base-level Pulsar ST hatchback rises by $700 from to $19,990 for the manual, and by $650 for the automatic to $22,240.

The mid-level Pulsar ST-L hatchback receives rear-park assist and drops by $1600 to $20,990 for the manual and $23,240 for the automatic.

As previously reported, the mid-tier ST-S hatchback has been deleted, with Nissan Australia managing director and CEO Richard Emery telling GoAuto earlier this month that the Pulsar line-up had too many variants, making some of them “orphans”.

Nissan found 2126 homes for its Pulsar in the first quarter of this year, down 18.3 per cent from the 2601 sold over the same period last year.

In 2014, Nissan sold a total of 10,515 Pulsars, a drop of 25.2 per cent on the 14,065 sold in 2013, placing it sixth in the sub-$40,000 small-car segment, well behind the market-leading Toyota Corolla (43,735), Mazda3 (43,313) and Hyundai i30 (31,505).
