After compact SUVs and compact sedans, there’s a new trend in the Indian Automotive Market, baby SUV! Renault witnessed a great success for their small car Kwid, their another budget brand Datsun is all set to unveiled Go-cross at Auto Expo 2016. Price of Datsun Go Cross in India is expected around 4.5-6 Lakh range for the base model.
Go cross was unveiled first time at the 2015 Tokyo Auto show. Based on Datsun Go+ MPV, Go cross will be more masculine. Rugged side cladding, roof rails will make it a Go + on a steroid. Though all the mechanical components will likely remain same as Go+.
Datsun has not revealed any engine configuration of the Datsun Go cross, but it’ll share the same engine as Go+, which is powered by 1198cc petrol motor that churns out 68 Bhp at 5,000 rpm and 104 Nm of torque at 4,000. The motor is mated to five speed manual transmission. The company claimed fuel economy of Datsun Go+ is around 20, that’ll be another advantage of Go cross.
If launched with a diesel mill Go cross will give a tough fight to Ford Ecosport and about to launch Tata Nexon. As Datsun is a low cost sub brand, Datsun will keep Go cross sub-four-meter just like Go+, to retain excise benefits. Go cross will be priced around 4.5-6 Lakhs in India.
