The test mules indicate that the Cross will bear a lot of resemblance with the GO+ save for the redesigned front profile
The which is the production-spec version of the GO Cross concept will make its world premiere on January 18, 2018, in Indonesia. But before that, a couple of test mules have been spied up close, revealing that it will just be a spruced up version of the micro MPV as against the concept, that had plenty of sheet metal changes.
Along with the Cross’ reveal date, Datsun had also released a teaser picture of the production-spec model’s front profile a few days ago. And it was good to see that the automaker has retained most of the design cues of its concept. However, unlike the front fascia, it seems that the side and rear profiles will have a lot in common with the GO+ micro MPV on which it is based.
First off, the side profile of the concept was more sculpted. The window line was also relatively streamlined and sleeker compared to that of the GO+. Even that aside, the concept’s quarter glass was way more sporty compared to the carried over, MPV-like larger units in the Cross.
he character lines were also more pronounced in the concept compared to the GO+ and the doors were differently moulded with a prominent lower crease.
We believe that Datsun should have taken this opportunity to subtly alter the production model’s sheet metal to replicate the concept. More so because it has already redesigned the front profile and has taken over two years to bring it into production.
