The Datsun GO-Cross Concept carries appealing styling elements and has the ability to be a good seller. It is expected to be priced between Rs. 5-7 lakhs when launched.
Nissan had showcased the Datsun GO-Cross concept at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2015 and now the Japanese automaker has showcased the vehicle here at the ongoing Auto Expo. The GO-Cross is based on the Datsun GO+ but it comes with rugged styling elements and it looks much more sportier than the regular GO models. The GO-Cross comes with a raised height as compared to the GO+. The headlights look far more sleeker on this model and the bumper also gets nice detailing.
From the side, the GO-Cross looks really butch thanks to the black body cladding and the beefy alloy wheels. The rear also looks very rugged and the bumper carries a silver skid plate too. The vehicle also gets roof rails. The GO-Cross comes powered by the same 1.2-litre petrol engine that also powers the GO+ and it is tuned to churn out 68 PS of power.
While the GO and GO+ are not selling in high numbers, the GO-Cross looks like a very promising product. It looks good and carries far more appeal than the regular GO models. It is expected to be a volume gainer and could be a game-changer for Nissan in the Indian market. We can expect the company to price it very aggressively, thus attracting a lot of crowd at showrooms.
