With the support of Nissan, Datsun brand has been back after almost three decades and this time ready to hit the Indian Automobile Industry with the new launch in hatchback segment namely GO. The GO hatch has been already unveiled at 12th Auto Expo in Feb 2014 and now company is ready to launch it tomorrow i.e. 19th March. This all-new model is looking trendy which will direct compete with the models like Maruti Suzuki Celerio, Hyundai Grand i10 etc. Let’s have a look what this new brand is serving to its customers.

Price:

To raise a tough fight among the same segment models, company has placed its price tags on a very competitive scale. The Go is carrying four variants having price range of all under 4 lakhs. These four variants namely D, D1, A and T carry the prices of 3.12 lakhs, 3.14 lakhs, 3.46 lakhs and 3.69 lakhs, respectively.

User's Asked Question

Engine details:

As of now, company has equipped only petrol unit in this hatch while diesel is missing. The Datsun GO is powered by an 1198cc, 1.2 liter petrol engine which is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox and developing the max power of 67.07bhp and peak torque of 104Nm.

The company has tried to make it one of the fuel efficient small models by offering the mileage figures of 20.6 km/l (ARAI certified) which seems impressive on looking at first. As per the company, Go can accelerate 0-100km/h in mere 13.3 seconds.

Space & Dimension:

It’s a five seater hatchback which is 3785mm long, 1635mm wide and 1485mm tall. The main and noticeable modification in Datsun GO with comparison to other same segment models is the position of hand brake which has been moved from left-hand side to the front. By doing this, a vacant space has been made in the left-hand side now which can be used for luggage holding or even a third person or a child can be adjusted at front row now, only if needed.

Though, the hatch users who have become habitual to use the emergency brake at left-side only could face the problem by equipment of that brake in front.

Other than this, the small GO is carrying a car boot of 265 liters, ground clearance of 170mm and wheelbase of 2450mm.

Interior:

At inside the cabin, company has done some wonderful experiments in this hatch model like the equipment of mobile docket on dashboard along with the USB charging and Aux-In portability at side, though Bluetooth connectivity is missing. Also, company is claiming to design this car by providing enough legroom and headroom. The other essential features like manual AC, manual central locking, power windows at front etc are also making their warm presence in this car. Well, the disappointed factor is GO’s poor material quality which have a scope of improvement.

Still, one experiment by company makes this hatch different from others is the availability of various packages of accessories as per the people’s daily need. These accessories packages include Women Edition, Family Package (in two different packs), Sporty Package, Trendy Package and Essential Package (in two different packs). One will have to pay extra money to avail any of these packages but it will also save the customers time and they can buy a bulk of features altogether instead of buying one at a time.

Exterior:

Its exterior glimpse is looking classy and sharply curved. It’s striking grille with chrome surround having Datsun logo in it, bold n curvy bumpers, attractive Sky color etc making it a trendy small hatch model. The Go is available in four different colors which are Sea Blue, Red, White and Grey.

Safety:

Safety wise, the new hatch disappoints us. Datsun didn’t equip any required safety devices like ABS or airbag etc in GO not even as optional which can be raised as a major drawback in comparison to other same segment models.

Verdict:

Being the company’s first ever model in India, it’s a good and applauded try. Its affordable price, few advanced interior features, impressive mileage figure etc have tendency to make this car a deserving competitor of same segment. But still, there are some sections where improvement could be done by the company, especially when its competitors are Maruti Suzuki, Hyundai etc. Let’s see what will be the customers’ reactions on this trendy new hatchback.
