JAKARTA (Dec. 27, 2018) - Datsun CROSS was named the “Best City Car’” of the year by ‘Indonesian Car of the Year 2018’ – a competition held by MobilMotor, a credible national automotive magazine in Indonesia.
The Datsun CROSS emerged as a winner in one out of the ten categories set by ICOTY and among 29 different models that were evaluated. Tests (over 200 km) were conducted both on highways and congested urban roads in the cities of Cibubur and Jakarta. The cars were evaluated on different parameters such as design, safety, features, technology, performance and comfort. First this year, cars were also tested for performance during night time as well.
Receiving the award, Masato Nakamura, Head of Datsun Indonesia said, “We would like to thank MobilMotor for this great award. It is an acknowledgement of the capabilities of the Datsun CROSS – a vehicle that is more than just a city car and caters to the various needs of customers in Indonesia.”
The award results were announced by a jury of five professional testers. The competition has been on-going for 17 years now, with the objective of helping customers compare and choose a car best suiting their needs and preferences.
