Toyota Corolla Ascent Tidy and functional, but the styling of the upright dashboard is a particularly element. The rear seat is roomy, but not quite as large as the Media system has a small and can be hard to read at a glance.

Boot is only 280 litres some cars a class have more space.

Pulsar ST-L: Very for a small car. Plenty of leg and shoulder room in the back Trim is bland looking, but quality and well put together.

Under the bonnet

Toyota Ascent Sport: The engine is a operator, with good delivery via the CVT automatic. Little-to-no from a standing start, and the has stepped ratios so it feels a regular auto. Not fast, but more usable than the particularly in stop-start traffic.#160;

Pulsar ST-L: Not as user-friendly as the drivetrain. The CVT auto is slow to in traffic, and the throttle response can be too Still, the engine offers grunt for most people#8217;s and it#8217;s willing – if a tad – when pushed

How it drives

Toyota Ascent Sport: Firmer makes for a more sporty experience, and it proves more at sharper bends. Though set up to solid, it never crashes bumps and remains comfortable at speeds. The steering offers weighting and more feel to it, and less body roll bends, too.

Nissan ST-L: The Pulsar#8217;s softer does a good job of isolating the from bumps and lumps at speeds, but it has a tendency to jiggle smaller inconsistencies at slower and can get out of shape through rough The steering is slow to react and feel as sporty as the Corolla.

Winner: Toyota Corolla Sport


Toyota Ascent Sport: The Corolla has a 100,000 kilometre warranty. capped price servicing requires services every six or 10,000km, with costs at $130 per visit. But the maintenance only lasts three or 60,000km.

Nissan Pulsar Also has a three-year, 100,000km Like the Corolla, services are due six months or 10,000km, and Nissan#8217;s covers the car for up to six years or 120,000km. the average cost is a heavy per service – more double the Toyota#8217;s.

Winner: Toyota Corolla Sport#160;


Toyota Ascent Sport: The most car in the country so far this year, and good reason. The Corolla has going for it, and wins this as its the more rounded offering.

Pulsar ST-L: By no means a bad particularly for those who appreciate space and who don#8217;t rank excitement high on their list.#160;

Winner: Toyota Ascent Sport
