Rumour: Datsun GO Cross India launch next year

Recent media reports suggest that Datsun India is planning to launch the GO Cross by the end of next year. The GO Cross was showcased as a concept at the 2016 Auto Expo. The response at the expo has reportedly motivated the Japanese automaker to increase the pace of the GO Cross project, so as to launch the production model in India by next year.

The GO Cross concept featured a distinctive front-end, featuring a hexagonal front grille, swept back LED headlights, a bulging skid plate, and black plastic cladding. The black cladding is expected to be carried forward into production, since it has now become a norm in the crossover segment.

On the inside, the GO Cross concept featured a 5-seater configuration, instead of the 7-seater arrangement found in the GO+ MPV. Datsun will also reportedly equip the production-spec GO Cross with a new dashboard.

Powering the GO Cross will likely be two engines: a 1.2-litre and a 1.5-litre TDCi diesel. Both these engines would be borrowed from the Nissan Micra.

Datsun will place the GO Cross in the hatchback crossover marketplace that currently comprises of the Hyundai Active i20, Toyota Etios Cross and the Fiat Avventura.

As per IndianAutosblog, Go Cross is targeted to be priced below the Vitara Brezza, when it goes on sale in 2018.

If it is going to be as tinny as its Go siblings, it might not find many takers.

I own five Go Pluses (cabs). Horrible build quality, horrible. The entire car vibrates at idle. You can even see the A and B pillars shaking.

And I have seen umpteen accident images of the Go siblings torn like an envelope.

If they want to go premium, the wafer thin sheet metal / light weight route is not going to work.

The car is surely a looker, though. If only they get the build quality right.

I just want to see how all these players(DATSUN/RENAULT/NISSAN) will cope up with the situation once Bharat New Vehicle Safety Assessment Program (BNVSAP) comes into existence. Will they beef up their vehicles(crumple zones) and make them more safer to withstand impact or just dump their products with low sales.
