Sharing most of the styling cues from Go siblings, the GO-Cross will be positioned as a sub-4 metre crossover. This mini crossover will rival against the likes of the Mahindra KUV100 and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Ignis. It is expected to be priced in the range of INR 4 lakh to INR 6 lakh. Based on the elongated Nissan V platform that also underpins Nissan Micra and Datsun GO siblings, the Datsun GO Cross concept features a very familiar front fascia.
It comes equipped with a hexagonal grille with chrome surround, flanked by sleek headlamps with LED strip, silver chromed bumper with black plastic extensions, LED fog lamps and auxiliary circular lamps. On sides, the vehicle surprisingly looks sporty thanks to several elements like silver lower body cladding, roof rails and chrome finished wheels. It comes with a high ground clearance and bold silhouette that gives it a SUV-ish look. The GO Cross concept rear end looks completely different from the GO siblings. It comes with newly styled taillights with LED inserts, pseudo air intakes on rear bumper and silver diffuser.
Like the GO and GO+, the GO-Cross gets a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder, 12V, DOHC petrol engine. This engine is capable of producing a top power output of 64.1bhp at 5,000rpm along with a peak torque of 140Nm at 4,000rpm. Power will be transmitted to front wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox. The company might also introduce a diesel engine in this compact crossover, which could be a 1.5-litre TDCi unit. This is the same engine that also powers the Nissan Micra and Renault Pulse.
