Datsun Go Cross Design – Exterior & Interior
The Datsun Go Cross concept is a sportier, rugged version of the Go+ and as you can see, is much better looking. Its front gets sleek headlamps, big hexagonal grilles, and highly detailed bumper with circular foglamp and LED DRLs. The car’s sides are beefier than the go+, courtesy of the grey coloured body cladding. Its character lines and roof rails are aggressive and looks great on the concept. The rear gets silver coloured skid plates, complimenting the overall rugged nature of the car.
Though Datsun Go cross concept definitely looks good, how much of the design will be carried over to production is unknown. However, expect to see something very similar.
Pictures of its interor are not available yet and will be updated as soon as they comes out. Renault (& Datsun) knows how big a part good feautures do in the smaal car division. In fact, the 80% of the Renault Kwid sold in India has touchscreen infotainment system. So expect a similar or better-equipped car.
Datsun Go Cross Engine
Powering the Datsun Go cross could be the same 1.2 liter, 3 cylinder mill that produces 68 Ps of power at 5,000rpm and a 140Nm of Torque at 4,000rpm. This engine is mated to a 5 speed transmission.
Since the Crossover segment banks heavily on frugal diesel engines, such an option is to be expected on the Go Cross as well.
Datsun Go Cross launch date, Price
On launch the car is expected to be priced aggressively near the 5-6 lakh range, which would be a game changer. Further Datsun could launch it in two variants of 5- and 7-seating capacity.
Expect a production version of the car ro be present at the 2018 Auto Expo Delhi. Official launch in the same quarter.
Look forward to the Auto Expo 2018
