Looks like Nissan will soon be joining the likes of the Golf GTI and Focus ST in the hot-hatch segment.

Nissan revived the Pulsar nameplate in 2014, in an attempt to join the ever-growing compact hatchback segment with a brand-new vehicle. Nissan is mainly aiming at the European market, a place where compact hatchbacks are selling like hot cakes, and its intentions with the Pulsar are quite simple. The goal is to offer an affordable vehicle powered by small, fuel-efficient engines that will grow on consumers and steal some costumers from the likes of Ford and Volkswagen. With the Pulsar already launched in 2014, Nissan is now focusing on a performance version of the hatch. Naturally, the beefed-up compact will arrive with a Nismo badge.

Showcased as a concept car at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, the Pulsar Nismo previews what European buyers will find in showrooms starting 2016. The vehicle carries a traditional Nismo body kit and an updated interior, and although there are no official details surrounding its powerplant, we bet on a turbocharged unit delivering at least 250 horsepower will find a home under its hood. Although the actual details of this Nismo are still a long way off, the concept displayed in Paris is a good indication of what Nissan is currently up to.
