The Japanese manufacturer has issued a teaser image of the new Nissan Pulsar, which will be built at Nissan's factory in Barcelona, Spain.
Nissan says the C-segment hatchback has been "designed to meet the specific demands of European car buyers" and will feature "the same high quality, high innovation approach that has come to typify Nissan models".
It's the first time Nissan has been represented in the C-segment since the Almera was phased out.
The Pulsar name first appeared in 1978 and was widely used for models in Asian and Australasian markets over the course of the last four decades. It also appeared in certain European markets in the early 1990s on the N14 model.
The new Nissan Pulsar will be officially revealed in full next Tuesday.
