Datsun, the budget car brand from Nissan, will unveil the production-spec Go Cross at Jakarta, Indonesia on January 18, 2018. Seen below is the latest teaser image of the upcoming model. The latest spy images give us a peek at the interior of the upcoming model. As can be seen below, the Datsun Cross interior comes with a touchscreen infotainment and a dashboard that looks much better than that of the Go Plus MPV. Also, the central air-vents are rectangular. Our guess is that the interior would be far more premium than of the Go+ MPV.
As is the case of all Datsun cars on sale in the country, even the 2018 Cross will be produced in India and Indonesia. The new model’s India launch date will likely fall in mid-2018. The new Datsun Cross shares in plenty with the Go+ MPV and is a 7 seater.
Datsun Cross India Launch Date
|Launch Date (expected)||August 2018|
The new 2018 Datsun Cross India launch isn’t expected to happen at least until the festive season of 2018. That said, one just can’t ignore the popularity and demand for crossovers and SUVs in India. Hence, Datsun might bring the Cross to India earlier than expected. We expect Datsun to reveal more launch details at the fast-approaching Auto Expo 2018.
Datsun Cross Price in India
|Minimum Price||Rs. 5.5 Lakhs|
|Maximum Price||Rs. 8 Lakhs|
While it might be too early to speculate, we still expect the Cross to have a starting price of around Rs. 5.5 Lakhs. The high component-sharing with the Go+ MPV will help Datsun price the Cross competitively. Also, Datsun India will use high-level localization to keep the costs really low. The top-end model of the Cross could have a price of Rs. 8 Lakhs (ex-showroom).

The o-Cross will share its motor with the Go+, which means it will receive the fairly potent 1.2-litre petrol motor that powers the compact MPV. Assuming that the Datsun GO-Cross borrows the GO and GO+’s 1.2 L motor, this is what the above is what the specifications table could look like.
Datsun Cross Mileage
*expected mileage figures
The 2018 Cross will borrow its 1.2-litre Petrol engine from the Go. Hence, we expect it to have similar mileage figures. Datsun India is expected to re-tune the engine for Go Cross. This could increase the mileage and performance marginally.

Datsun Cross Exterior Design
As we said, the new 2018 Datsun Cross is based on the Go+ MPV and hence, gets similar panels and other details. It boasts of the large hexagonal signature Datsun grille that comes finished in gloss black, stylish LED headlamps, a rugged front bumper that features a skid plate and LED fog-lights, roof rails and black plastic cladding. It is rather interesting to note the efficient manner in which Datsun has managed to infuse several rugged looking elements with the Go’s design. The production-spec Datsun Go Cross will lose some of the design elements as is generally the case, but features like the body cladding, skid plates, LED DRLs and larger wheels are expected to be retained.
Thanks to a bold silhouette and a high ground clearance, the GO Cross looks a lot like a compact SUV. It looks very rugged and masculine. The front-end features some chrome highlights, LED lamps and a silver faux skid plate. It also gets Auxiliary lamps and LED foglamps. In the side profile, it looks attractive due to stylish alloys, roof rails and rugged body cladding. The rear-end is also smart with pseudo air intakes and LED taillamps.
Datsun Cross Interior Design
Datsun hasn’t revealed the interiors of the concept yet, but the Datsun Cross interior images seen above hints at a different setup from the Go+ MPV. The dashboard will look more premium and would have a touchscreen interface. We’re not sure if Datsun will keep the third row of seats. It could come with a bolder color for the seat fabric. As the Go Cross will be aimed at the young and adventurous, it will have a more stylish interior. Expect the top model to have features like an Auto AC and built-in audio system.
