Car Zoom’s take:
By unveiling these two models in hatchback and MPV category as well, company is trying to establish its network in India. The chances of the success of Go+ MPV are high coz the expected price range looks very affordable and within budget and car is looking trendy and powerful too. Though people in India will have to wait for some time for its launch here coz Datsun is planning to launch these cars first in Indonesia, Russia and South Africa and then in India. So till then, keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned for more updates.
