The Datsun CROSS is powered by a 1.2-liter 68/78 hp gasoline engine, with 77 lb-ft of torque.
In addition to the manual transmission, the model also offers the X-Tronic CVT (continuously variable transmission). Introduced for the first time in the Datsun lineup, this latest-generation CVT technology further enhances drivability and enjoyment. Smooth and easy to drive, it’s also highly fuel efficient, offers better performance, has fewer moving parts, and is more durable, lighter and more compact than a conventional automatic gearbox.
The Datsun CROSS is equipped with Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) technology as standard in all grades. Using the latest software controlled by onboard computers and sensors, the VDC suite of features embraces anti-lock brakes (ABS), electronic brake distribution with brake assist (EBD), traction control (TCS) and brake-limited slip differential (B-LSD). The Datsun CROSS also benefits from other safety equipment including dual front airbags, safety belt warning lights and automatic headlights.
There’s ample room for five adults and a spacious trunk for their luggage. There’s also the bonus of two extra seats in the back that can be used, if needed, over short distances.
The car will be produced at the Nissan/Datsun plant in Purwakarta, West Java, with the first deliveries planned in March. The car will be offered at a booking price starting from N4.5 million (excluding cost of shipping to and clearing at the destination port). Precise pricing and grade information will be announced closer to the start of sales.
