For those in Europe that is. The proportions certainly seem similar enough, low crossover LOL?

always loved the old pulsar's especially the GTI-R , hopefully they do something sporty to it, even a NISMO version would be great to have. Throw in the Juke Nismo engine and transmission

These competitors will dictate what powertrain and interior options that the upcoming HR-V is going to have. Let hope that the competitors go all out and have a lot of choices in these subcompacts so we have more choices to choose from in the HR-V!

Honda has been good with their options so far, I would expect to see around the same along with some new stuff, overall it should be inline or close to the competition.

There has been a bit of speculation about a NISMO version of the Pulsar. Someone made a rendering.



So if there does end up being a NISMO model, hopefully that will prompt Honda to make a performance variant of the HRV.

Maybe like the old Pulsar some people might swap an RB26 into it which would be awesome but that will only happen if it's RWD.

Black and the bigger more fancy wheels make the Nissan Pulsar look sharp! Hopefully, Honda America is reading this thread!

Bigger wheels, yes. Just not those wheels, design is horrible.
Actually if it was a better wheel design, even that current size would be fine.

The new Nissan Pulsar is a traditional hatchback, so it will ride lower than a crossover like the HR-V. It looks likely to be new sheetmetal on the second generation Tiida. The first Tiida was sold in the US as the Versa and although it was marketed as a subcompact was larger than the Fit and actually part of the European C segment like the Pulsar. It will compete against the Euro Honda Civic (also a hatchback) and Toyota Auris (rumored to be coming to the US as a Scion). If released in the US it would be best compared as a compact, think "Sentra hatchback", as the new Versa is smaller than the first generation. Aptly, our Sentra is named Pulsar in Australia and available as both a sedan and a hatchback on which I think the Euro Pulsar is based. Compare the rear window frame with the Australian Pulsar (Tiida):
