Datsun has unveiled its Go-Cross Concept based on the Go+ MPV platform, at the Nissan headquarters in Yokohama, Japan.

Datsun says that the concept is built for the city life as well as the great outdoors. More importantly, it also hints at the brand’s forthcoming design language. The Go-Cross was designed by a dedicated team in Japan and bears all the characteristics of a crossover. It has a high ground clearance, body cladding, prominent wheel arches, roof rails and skid plates; to top it off, Datsun has even mentioned that it has “not envisaged” four wheel drive for the concept.

Other design highlights are the hexagonal grille, LED head- and tail-lights with the front getting another set of circular lights just below them, LED strips on the air intakes, aerodynamic roof rack sitting on a black patterned roof, five spoke 17-inch alloys and a tailgate-mounted spoiler. The designers have made a flick on the shoulder line at the back to remind anyone who is seeing that it’s based on the Go+ MPV. The carmaker has not revealed any technical details.

“Our new crossover concept has also been created with practicality in mind. There’s ample space inside for families and friends travelling together. The usefully sized luggage area is complemented by the extra luggage capacity offered by the roof rack, while the higher ground clearance and tough exterior cladding mean it will be able to cope with everyday road and traffic conditions in the country.” said Koli Nagano, executive design director, Datsun.

There is no word on production yet. We have added a high-res picture gallery for you to check out the Go-Cross Concept below.
