Datsun entered the Indian market back in 2013 with the Go hatchback offering. Later that year, the company also brought in the subcompact seven-seater Go+ offering as well. Now after four years, Datsun will finally bring in the facelift versions of their Go and Go+ offerings in the country. The two cars, based on Nissan's 'V' platform are manufactured at their facility in Chennai.
Datsun first launched the new Go and Go+ facelift version in Indonesia in early May 2018. Both, the Go hatchback and the Go+ MPV facelift come with a revised styling package. However, it is still not clear if these styling kits will be available on the Indian-spec cars.
Exterior styling on the Datsun Go and Go+ facelift versions include reprofiled headlamps, revised front bumpers integrated with LED DRL. The front hexagonal grille on the cars will also be updated with a new mesh design. Higher-spec variants of both the hatchback and MPV offering will feature 14-inch alloy wheels.
Datsun is said to have completely revised the interior look on both the cars. The facelifts of the Go and the Go+ will feature a brand new dashboard. The interiors will also feature a newly designed AC vent along the centre, along with a 6.75-inch touchscreen infotainment system.
The facelift version will new get a restyled instrument cluster, with the addition of an analogue tachometer. Other changes include new individual front seats, along with a proper lid for the glovebox.
However, the Go and the Go+ facelifts will still carry over the high set gear levers and the side air-con vents.
Other standard features on the Datsun Go and Go+ facelift versions: electrically adjustable mirror, rear parking sensors, power window, rear wipers, ABS and airbags.
Both the hatchback and MPV facelift offerings will carry forward the same engine option. This includes a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine. This produces 68bhp and 104Nm of torque. The engine will be mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
The Indonesian-spec also comes equipped with a CVT transmission. However, the Indian-spec might miss out on the CVT gearbox.
Thoughts On The Datsun Go And Go+ Facelift India
With all the updates on both the hatchback and MPV offerings, Datsun is expected to price the cars at a premium. Prices for both offerings is expected to increase by Rs 25,000 to Rs 30,000.
