Both cars will get ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, dual airbags and rear parking sensors as standard
Datsun India is set to launch the GO hatchback and its seven seater version, the GO+, in India today. Both cars get significant cosmetic changes and feature additions to make them feel more upmarket than before. With the additional equipment in place, expect higher variants of the GO and GO+ to be hiked by Rs 10,000 to Rs 30,000. Bookings are already underway for an upfront payment of Rs 11,000, with deliveries beginning immediately after the launch.
Both cars are likely to be available in a choice of four variants. Here’s a brief look at the prices of the outgoing version along with what we can expect from the new models.
|GO PRICES||GO+ PRICES|
|D||Rs 3.38 lakh||Rs 3.95 lakh|
|A EPS||Rs 3.98 lakh||Rs 4.77 lakh|
|T||Rs 4.25 lakh||Rs 5.03 lakh|
|T(O)||Rs 4.41 lakh||Rs 5.25 lakh|
The Datsun GO and GO+ will receive an updated set of bumpers. They will also get LED daytime running lights too.
Top-spec variants will get larger 14-inch wheels equipped with fatter 165/70-section tyres instead of the 155/70 13-inch units.
New colour options - Amber Orange the GO and Sunset Brown for the GO+.
Interiors And Features
Both cars will get a slightly redesigned dashboard. The GO+ will receive a two-tone finish.
The front seats get a conventional setup in place of the connected layout seen in the older version.
Both cars get a conventional floor-mounted handbrake instead of the pull-type lever offered before.
The biggest draw, however, will be the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It will feature Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto connectivity.
In a bid to aid more convenience, Datsun will add rear power windows and wiper with washer to the feature list.
With the upcoming BNVSAP (Bharat new vehicle safety assessment program) kicking in next year, the GO siblings will get dual airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist (BA), driver seatbelt reminder and rear parking sensors as standard fitment.
Engine and Specifications
Under the bonnet of both vehicles will be the same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine as before. This unit churns out 68PS of power and 104Nm of torque.
As much as we would like to have them, Datsun has refrained from introducing a CVT or an AMT gearbox with the new models. This means we’ll have to make do with a 5-speed manual gearbox for now.
The Datsun GO rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Celerio and the recently unveiled Hyundai Santro. There is no direct competitor for the Datsun GO+ as it is the most affordable 7-seater in the country right now.
