Datsun Go Cross India Launch

Based on GO+ MPV platform, the Datsun GO-Cross will challenge products like Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza.

Nissan, the Japanese automaker revived its low-cost brand – Datsun – to gain some market share in the growing nations including India, Russia, Indonesia and others. The company is currently selling three cars – Go hatchback, Go+ MPV and the redi-Go small car. Datsun’s next all-new product for the Indian market will be the Datsun Go Cross compact SUV, which was showcased at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo. It was speculated that the car will take at least 2-3 years to get into production form. Seeing the great response for the Go Cross concept at the Auto Show, the Japanese automaker has fast tracked its development work.

Internally known as EM2, the GO Cross will lock horns with products like Maruti Vitara Brezza and Ford EcoSport. Similar to the existing Datsun cars, the new compact SUV will be manufactured in India with high level of localisation to price it competitively against its rivals. The vehicle will be based on GO+ MPV platform, and may come in both 5 and 7 seat configurations.

Talking about styling, the compact SUV gets a distinctive front end featuring hexagonal radiator grille, sweptback LED head-lamps, LED fog lamps, plastic cladding and skid plates. Under the bonnet of the SUV will be a 1.2-litre petrol engine that also powers the Go twins. The company might also introduce the diesel powered SUV, which is likely to be powered by a 1.5-litre dCi unit borrowed from the Nissan Micra.

6. Datsun GO Cross Exterior & Interior

The Go Cross is based on the elongated Nissan V platform, which also underpins the new Go+ MPV. It claimed to be as light as its MPV sibling. Featuring bold silhouette and a high ground clearance, the Go Cross crossover gets a stance of a proper compact SUV. This one, in fact, looks a lot better than many compact SUVs on sale currently.

The MPV gets an aggressive front fascia featuring a hexagonal grille with chrome bezel and LED headlamps. Other design highlights include silver chromed bumper with black plastic extensions, LED fog lights, auxiliary circular lamps and higher bonnet line. On sides, the vehicle is equipped with silver lower body cladding, a pair of chrome finished 5-spoke alloy wheels and roof rails. Though, the rear end is quite different from the GO hatchback and GO+ MPV. At the rear, the car gets a bumper with pseudo air intakes, LED taillight enclosures and silver diffuser.

The company hasn’t revealed details and pictures of the GO Cross cabin. It is expected that the vehicle will share some of its features with the GO Plus MPV. However, the quality of materials and fit & finish will see an improvement. The company might also add a touchscreen infotainment system on the top-end model, while ABS & dual airbags could be offered as an optional.

7. Datsun GO Cross India – Engine & Transmission

In India, the Datsun GO-Cross crossover might be offered with a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, 12V, petrol and a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder in-line diesel engine. These powertrains also do duty in other Nissan cars. The petrol mill is capable to yield a maximum power output of 76bhp at 6,000rpm and a peak torque of 104Nm at 4,000rpm. On the other hand, the diesel mill churns out 63.1bhp at 4,000rpm and 160Nm at 2,000rpm. Transmission duties could be executed by a 5-speed manual gearbox. Though, the company hasn’t yet revealed the engine details of the vehicle.

This is all what we have for now on the Datsun Go Cross, stay tuned to IndiaCarNews for all updates on this.

    I like go cross , but I am confusing because interior design not good I think plastic quality is very chief when I am watching interior pic.
    External design is super.
    But need to do some improvement just like interior with a led and plastic quality
    If plastic quality is good to kindly change plastic colour in available colour saying i am chief.
    I hope you can develop those think in future.
