The Datsun GO hatchback sits above the redi-GO and is for customers looking for a little more space and a more powerful engine. It is powered by a BS6 compliant 1.2-litre engine that develops 67hp and 104Nm with 5-speed manual transmission, while it delivers 77hp and the same amount of torque with a CVT. In terms of features, it gets a 7-inch touch screen infotainment system, LED DRLs and 14-inch alloy wheels. There is enough room to seat five occupants inside and the interior comes in an all-black colour scheme. Safety features include ABS with EBD, dual airbags, reverse parking sensors, side crash & pedestrian protection regulation as standard. Prices for the Datsun GO start at Rs 4.02 lakh and go up to Rs 6.51 lakh (ex-showroom).

    In terms of design and styling, the Datsun GO looks fairly utilitarian but there are some subtle hints of sharp creases spread all over. The front of the car has the familiar-looking Datsun grille with a silver border. Along with this, one can also see halogen headlamps and vertically mounted LED DRLs beneath them. The most interesting element on the sides are the 14-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The Datsun GO is offered in six colour options including Ruby Red, Bronze Gray, Amber Orange Vivid Blue, Blade Silver and Opal White. All these are single tone colours and there are no dual-tone options on offer.

  • Datsun GO Interior

    Even on the inside, the Datsun GO has a fairly basic but functional layout. There is a round steering wheel with no controls on it, the MID has two large analogue dials and a small digital display and there is a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit at the centre. The gear lever is mounted on a console extruding out from the dashboard itself. Datsun has fitted the GO with something called ‘anti-fatigue seats’ which maximise comfort for the occupants.

  • Datsun GO Engine

    The Datsun GO comes with only one engine option that is a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, naturally-aspirated unit. This engine produces slightly different outputs depending on the transmission options. When paired to a manual transmission, the engine makes 67hp of peak power and peak torque of 104Nm comes at 4000rpm. With the CVT, the power output jumps up to 76hp while the torque output remains the same at 104, however, it is now achieved at 4400rpm.

  • Datsun GO Transmission

    As mentioned before, the Datsun GO comes with two transmission options. One is a conventional 5-speed manual and the other is a CVT. The CVT is a sensible option for anyone that wants the more powerful version of the car or has to negotiate a lot of traffic on a daily basis. The automatic is, however, only being offered in the top two T and T(O) trims.

  • Datsun GO Braking and Safety

    The braking setup on the Datsun GO consists of a fairly basic yet effective setup of disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. It also gets features like ABS, EBD, Brake Assist, VDC and two airbags as standard.

  • Datsun GO Mileage

    Since the Datsun GO is an entry-level hatchback and comes with a fairly frugal 1.2-litre NA engine, it is a good pick for mileage conscious buyers. Datsun claims that the vehicle can return a mileage of 19.02kmpl in the manual version while the CVT can return a higher figure of 19.59kmpl.
