Datsun code named K2 teased

Famous for the 510 Fairlady roadsters and later the Fairlady (240Z) coupes, the Datsun automobile brand is nowadays almost forgotten. But resurrection is on its way as Nissan announced that since the 2012 spring the name Datsun will revive in countries like Indonesia, South Africa, India and Russia. Datsun prepares a new entry model for July 15th and since the day is almost here, some teaser images have been released to raise interest.

The ne Datsun doesn’t seem impressive at all as it is not a quite original car. However, this will be compensated by an attractive price, the Datsun being a car that anyone can afford. The officials at Renault-Nissan claim that the hatchback is developed for middle-class customers and that the low-cost Datsun will combine functionality and style to become a best seller. With all these advantages the new model could be a success.

The new Datsun model is code named inside the factory the K2. Its production name is yet not known. The vehicle will borrow the platform from the Nissan Micra and the engine, too. So, it will be powered by a three-cylinder, 1.2-liter gasoline engine. There is no other information regarding its output. The car is meant to battle the popular enough Maruti Wagon R and Hyundai i10. The small Datsun is expected to go on sale sometimes in 2014.
