Datsun India teases mystery car ahead of imminent unveil
Datsun India took to social media to tease what appears to be a variant extension of the Datsun Go+. The silhouette’s length, nose and ground clearance are consistent with that of the Go+.
We suspect the soon-to-be-unveiled model to be a soft crossover version of the compact 7-seater. The model is likely to be a part of Datsun India’s festive season strategy.
Like the Datsun Go+, the new variant will have no direct rival in the Indian market. In Indonesia which is another important market for the Go+, the new model will be pitted against the new Toyota Calya.
We expect the new Datsun derivative to sport different front and rear bumpers with black plastic and silver inserts, lower body cladding all around, flared wheel arches, roof rails, new alloy wheel design (possibly larger than the regular Go+’s wheels), roof-mounted spoiler, and rear diffuser.
The budget 7-seat MPV which is based on a stretched version of the Go’s architecture (which in turn is based on Nissan’s modified V Platform) is positioned as one of the most affordable people carriers in India and Indonesia.

The new Datsun Go+ soft crossover would be hoping to take advantage of the crossover frenzy. Prices are expected to be marginally highter than the regular Go+.
