a little over a year that Datsun reemerged from its ashes, after more than 10 years without used the brand. Nissan decided to restore this historical name to create a new brand low-cost, especially designed for emerging markets like India, Russia, Indonesia or south Africa. Since then there are various models that the brand has presented, all cutting economic, and up to the date has sold over 100,000 units.
In the Hall of Tokyo, the firm has taken the opportunity to give to know the Datsun GO-Cross, a prototype of more interesting. This is a crossover that looks modern and at least at this conceptual stage, very away from looking like a car economic. Its aspect is robust to the time you are able to keep the identity generated by the most recent models of the brand, while in the side view reminds us a lot of the Nissan Qashqai of the first generation.
Datsun has not confirmed, nor much less, that go to launch a SUV based on the Datsun GO-the Cross. With this prototype have wanted to show their possibilities in the future, and although a crossover away a little of what you are trying to offer Datsun, might be an interesting option for the public that are looking for something more than a low price, but that does not count with a budget very loose.
Although the side view of the Datsun GO-Cross we remember the first Nissan Qashqai is a model that has nothing to do, although this would be a good way to reuse a model of success already amortized. The GO-Cross used the platform of the Datsun GO+, although it doesn’t seem to have some proportions studied and a design infinitely more attractive. Datsun has not commented on the powertrain of this model. The GO+ from which it stems is marketed with an engine 1.2 petrol 98 hp with front-wheel drive and manual change of five relations.
