According to some reports, Datsun India is planning to launch the much-awaited crossover Go Cross to heat up the battle in the crossover segment. The company will launch the new crossover model in 2017.
The Go Cross was showcased by the Datsun as a concept at the 2016 Auto Expo. The car enthusiasts were happy with Datsun's concept at that time and this motivated the low-cost brand to develop it at a faster pace.
The latest information that is on the internet is that the Go Cross will be launched by mid-2017 after it's parent company Nissan launches the X-Trail Hybrid. Nissan will launch the X-Trail Hybrid by April this year.
The Go Cross will likely get two engine options: a 1.2- and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel. These two engines would be shared from the Nissan Micra.
Outside, the GO Cross concept has boxy design and is featured with a hexagonal front grille, swept back LED headlights, a protruding skid plate, and thick plastic cladding.
The fourth offering from Datsun will compete against the likes of yet-to-launch Maruti Suzuki Ignis, Hyundai Active i20 and Toyota Etios Cross. We can expect Datsun to price the Go Cross around Rs 5 lakh, which will make it a value for money competitor.
