Datsun Go MPV and sedan rendered: Maruti Ertiga and Honda Amaze rival
Datsun, the all new sub-brand of Nissan was re-launched after a gap of 33 years earlier this year in New Delhi, India. At the launch, Nissan also revealed their first low cost car under the Datsun brand, named Go. This will be the first car to be launched early next year, with a price range of Rs 3.5 lakh.
With an aim to capture 5% of Indian auto industry by 2016, Nissan has plans to introduce 10 new cars, 7 under Nissan and 3 under the Datsun nameplate. The 7 new cars under Nissan are Terrano SUV, Qashqai SUV, new X-Trail, new 370Z, new Micra, new Evalia and new Sunny. Under the Datsun brand, it will be the Go hatchback, Go based MPV and and a Go based sedan, reveals Overdrive.
We have already seen how the Go based sedan would look like, in a render that was revealed last month. Now, here is the new render which shows us how the Go based MPV will look like. To seat 7 passengers, the new Go MPV will compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Ertiga, and Chevrolet Enjoy. By the time Go MPV is launched, Hyundai and Honda too would have launched a car each in the same segment.
From the render here, we can see from the side profile that the length is slightly increased, so as to accommodate third row seating. Design look similar to that of Go hatchback, with same headlight and taillights. Engine options to be offered will be a choice of petrol and diesel engines. Petrol will be the same 1.2l which will be seen on Go, while a 1.5l diesel will also be seen. Rendering is credit to AbesselingSVF.
Apart from this, the artist has also revealed a render which gives an idea of the Datsun Go based sedan. Unlike the previous render, which gave it a Toyota Etios kind of rear look, this one here gives a look more like a Maruti Suzuki DZire. Once launched, Go Sedan will compete with the likes of Honda Amaze, Grand i10 Hyundai sedan, and Maruti Suzuki Dzire. You can also see the Datsun Go based sportback render by the same artist in the gallery below.
