While the Datsun Go and the Datsun Go+ aren’t available with a CVT option at the moment, the soon-to-launch 2018 Datsun Cross will offer a CVT option. Actually, the company has released a teaser image that clearly hints at this feature of the upcoming crossover. The Cross is basically a production-spec version of the Go Cross prototype that was put on a show at the Auto Expo 2016. Now, it looks like the production-ready version will make its India debut at the Auto Expo 2018.
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.
2018 Datsun Cross India Launch Date
|Launch Date (expected)
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.
2018 Datsun Cross Price in India
|Rs. 5.5 Lakhs
|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).
2018 Datsun Cross Specifications
|Engine Type/ Displacement
|1.2 L Petrol
|Acceleration (0-100 km/h)
|Air Conditioner Type
|Automatic Climate Control
|Steering Audio Controls
The 2018 Datsun 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.
2018 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.
