Unveiled in Indonesia and due to arrive in India later this year, the Cross, as indicated by the leaked brochure images and details, receives a honeycomb grille, projector type headlights with daytime running LEDs, pod-like fog lamp surrounds, silver front and rear skidplates, as well as 15-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust tip and black cladding around the wheel arches, on the bumpers and at the base of the doors.
Standing 30 mm higher than the Go+ for an overall ground clearance of 200 mm, the Cross' interior benefits from a new 6.7-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth and USB, while standard spec includes all around electric windows, automatic headlights, ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, rear parking sensors and Vehicle Dynamic Control.
As previously reported, the seven-seat Cross will again be powered by a 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, but with rated outputs of 50 kW and 104 Nm in models equipped with the standard five-speed manual gearbox and 57 kW and 104 Nm in the case of the new CVT 'box. Regardless, drive in both models are routed to the front wheels.
Projected pricing for the Cross in Indonesia will commence at 163-million Rupiah (R149 637) although Datsun is yet to announce whether it would bring the Cross to South Africa.
