Datsun has launched its second model in India, badged as the Go+. The Datsun Go+ is based on the Go hatchback’s platform. It is longer in length though and comes with third row seats that makes it a seven-seater MPV. The Datsun Go+ is the only compact MPV in the market with a length of 3,995mm. And with prices ranging between Rs. 3.79 lakh to Rs. 4.61 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), the Datsun Go+ is also the most affordable MPV.
Powered by a 1.2 litre, three cylinder petrol engine, the Go+ also benefits from lower duties as it is powered by a small petrol engine. The engine has maximum torque and power outputs of 68PS and 104Nm respectively. The engine is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The Go+ has an ARAI rated fuel economy figure of 20.6 km/l.
Speaking at the India launch, Vincent Cobee, Global Head of Datsun, said, “Datsun GO+ is our second model for India in a span of one year and confirms our commitment to the Indian market. It delivers on our promise of making motoring more accessible and more attractive for Indian customers and helping them realize their dream of car ownership. The Datsun GO+ also opens up a completely new segment of sub-4 meter Compact Family Wagon in the country and we are confident that the ‘+’ will certainly add new possibilities to our customers’ lives.”
The Datsun Go+ has been launched with four variants on offer, namely, D, D1, A and T. The Go+ D variant is an absolutely basic one that is offered without power steering and air conditioning. This is meant to be an affordable and relatively safe mode of transport for large families. The top end Go+ comes loaded with features such as manual central locking, power steering, air conditioning and heating, follow-me-home headlamps, speed sensitive wipers with teardrop function and a mobile docking station.
“The Datsun GO+ is our effort in recognizing the needs of evolving Indians who are always seeking for more. This compact family wagon ensures just that – more comfort, flexibility and practicality. All this is packaged in a stylish and distinctive body style and backed by Nissan’s technological expertise. With this product, we are not only committed to deliver more value to our customers, but also a superior ownership experience to boost their lifestyle,” said, Guillaume Sicard, President–Nissan India Operations.
The Datsun Go+ is an extremely practical and affordable offering that offers 347 litres of boot space with the third row of seats down. And if you need to move house, folding the second and third row seats makes for an extremely spacious cargo area. It has been launched with a choice of six shades, namely, Red, Gold, Blue, White, Silver and Bronze. Datsun is offering the Go+ with a two-year warranty with unlimited kilometer coverage.
