Datsun Go Cross India Launch

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

Datsun, Nissan’s low cost brand is gearing up to enter into the growing compact SUV segment. The company will launch the much-awaited Datsun GO Cross crossover in the country in early 2018. It is expected that the production-spec model of the car could be unveiled at the Delhi Auto Expo 2018. This model will be 4th Datsun product in India and will join the likes of GO hatchback, GO+ MPV and redi-GO. The company which was resurrected by Nissan few years back is yet to witness success in India. With the GO Cross in the pipeline, things are looking up for Datsun.

The model raked in good reviews at the last year’s Delhi Auto Expo and based on that the company is apparently expediting the production. This compact SUV will be developed on Nissan V minus platform that also underpins the Nissan Micra. It is expected to be the most affordable car in its league. Reports suggest that Datsun could launch this crossover in two seating layout – 5 and 7, but we believe that the small SUV will be launched as a five-seater.

Internally known as EM2, the crossover will foray into the highly competitive sub-4 meter SUV segment that is currently ruled by Ford EcoSport and Maruti Vitara Brezza. Due to its crossover-like styling, other similarly priced models like Mahindra KUV100 and Maruti Ignis also come in the radar. The new model will be manufactured at the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s production facility in Chennai. It is expected to share several components with GO+ MPV, which should help Datsun to price it competitively.

Visually, the car will have an assertive front end with elements like chrome finished hexagonal front grille with honeycomb backdrop, pulled back LED headlamps, LED fog lamps and skid plates. While on the inside, the crossover is likely to come with a choice between five and seven seat-layout. The engine set-up could include a 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre oil burner with a standard five-speed manual gearbox.

It is expected that the production version of the crossover could be unveiled at the Auto Expo 2018. We will update our readers with the exact launch date, as soon as there is an official announcement. Read More – Datsun Redi Go – All You Need To Know

Datsun GO Cross Price in India

Variant Expected Price
Base Model Rs 5 lakh
Top Model Rs 10 lakh

The upcoming car will be developed on Nissan’s V minus platform, which is currently been developed in India. This low-cost platform with extensive localisation and component sharing with GO+ would help Datsun to price it well against the rivals. Considering the comprehensive localisation for GO Cross, we expect it to fall between Rs 5 lakh to Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom).

Datsun GO Cross Specifications

Engine 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Petrol
Maximum Power 76bhp @ 6,000rpm
Maximum Torque 104Nm @ 4,000rpm
Engine 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder In-Line Diesel
Maximum Power 63.1bhp @ 4,000rpm
Maximum Torque 160Nm @ 2,000rpm
Transmission 5-speed Manual

The compact SUV will source its engine setup from the Micra hatchback. While the petrol version will be powered by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder unit, the oil burner will be a 1.5-litre K9K unit. Transmission options are likely to include a 5-speed manual and an AMT unit.

Datsun GO Cross Mileage

Petrol 18kmpl – 20kmpl (Estimated)
Diesel 23kmpl – 25kmpl (Estimated)

The petrol and diesel engines are likely to be frugal with the estimated mileage rated at 18kmpl and 23-25kmpl respectively.

Datsun GO Cross Exterior & Interior

Sharing underpinnings with GO+ MPV built on Nissan’s V platform, the GO Cross is expected to be lightweight akin to its sibling. With a bold silhouette and a raised ground clearance, the crossover resembles a compact SUV. In fact, it overpowers most of the compact SUVs from the current lot in visual terms.

The aggressively looking front fascia of the SUV is equipped with chrome laden hexagonal grille, flanked by LED headlamps with daytime running lamps. Other design highlights include silver chromed bumper with black plastic extensions, LED fog lights, auxiliary circular lamps and high bonnet line. The side profile gives MPV-like impression, but features like silver lower body cladding, roof rails, raised height and muscular wheel arches offers a bold look. The flared wheel arches are likely to be fitted to 15-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels. The rear end is a far cry from its hatchback sibling, featuring bumper with pseudo air-intakes, LED taillights enclosures and silver diffuser.

Information deeming GO Cross interior is limited, but it is expected to source some features with the GO+ MPV. The material quality, fit & finish is likely to be better as opposed to other models. And there could be a touchscreen infotainment system on the top-spec variant with optional safety tech including ABS and dual front airbags.

Datsun GO Cross India – Engine & Transmission

The carline will be offered with petrol and diesel engines in manual version. While Datsun has not revealed engine details, it is expected to use a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol unit with 76bhp of maximum power at 6000rpm and 104Nm of peak torque at 4000rpm for the petrol variants. Diesel powered GO Cross is likely to plonk a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder, in-line oil burner with 63.1bhp at 4000rpm and 160Nm of torque at 2000rpm. Both the engines will be mated to a conventional five-speed manual unit.

    If plastic quality is good to kindly change plastic colour in available colour saying i am chief.
