Datsun, as we know, is looking to make a big splash in the developing markets with its range of affordable compact vehicles including a compact crossover. The brand has previewed the latter model in the form of the Go-Cross concept at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
The Go-Cross concept is based on the Go+ compact MPV and hints at a forthcoming compact crossover model from Datsun.
The GO+ design influence can be seen in the front-end that features typical Datsun design elements like a large trapezoidal grille and the stylish headlights.
Additionally, the Go-Cross concept gets beefy plastic cladding, roof rails and chunky wheels. Also on offer are projector lights with LEDs and daytime running lights.
The Go-Cross is still in concept form which means there are no details on the interiors or drivetrain yet. Having said that, a small and efficient petrol engine is expected.
Datsun’s next model will be the production-spec Redi-Go that will arrive early next year. It will be the first vehicle to be based on the Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A platform.
As for the Go-Cross, the concept will eventually pave way for Datsun’s first even crossover model that will give the budget brand a significant boost in expanding into new markets.
