Datsun India teases mystery car ahead of imminent unveil

 
Datsun Go+ cross

The new car is likely to have crossover ensembles.

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.

The Go+ is one of the most affordable people carriers in India.

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 upcoming derivative will be positioned above the existing Go+ variants.

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+.

    Poor fellow has been jailed, look at the 3rd row… It is for sure there will be no competition to this, as none will provide such monkey seating car.
    No 60:40 split seat in the 3rd row.:(
    Toyota has to bring in Calaya with Petrol version.
    Thanking this guy for the perfect picture of the 3rd row. Not many will provide such clear snaps.
    Just count how many GO+ runs on the road, still company is doing just cosmetic changes, instead they should have scrapped the design team.

    Karuppa, thanks for uploading perfect snaps that speak each and every curves of the car, kudos.
