Could be presented in five- and seven-seat versions.
The Datsun GO-Cross Concept has been teased ahead of its local premiere at the Auto Expo 2016 in Greater Noida on February 3. The model has not yet been green lit for production, according to the company. It would be showcased alongside the Datsun Redi-GO which is believed to be unveiled and launched at the show.
Based on the Datsun GO+ MPV’s platform, the Datsun GO-Cross is a crossover-styled car that was unveiled at Nissan’s global headquarters in Japan during the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show. It is reported to be offered in two versions, a five-seater and a seven-seater, when launched.
Reports also said that the seven-seat version will be launched a considerable time after the five-seat model is introduced in the market. It is believed that the Datsun GO-Cross will be the flagship on the GO platform.
The GO-Cross would be powered by the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder DOHC 12-valve engine that would be tuned to produce 68 PS at 5,000 rpm and 104 Nm at 4,000 rpm. Transmission system would also be the same five-speed unit as on the Go+.
