Overview

Datsun Go is the model which marked the entry of the Japanese brand in the country. The car which was first introduced in 2014, was pitched in the affordable hatchback segment and was able to grab a slight share of pie in the class. However, the overall response of the car was lukewarm since its inception so the carmaker decided to give a major update in 2018. The new Datsun GO has been launched with an impressive list of updates this time around. The car now looks a bit more upmarket from inside and out with the mechanicals remaining the same. The hatchback was also been high criticized on the safety ground but now the carmaker has responded rightly to the feedback by giving a major update in this department too. At the same time, the affordability factor hasn’t been compromised; even the newer model is more reasonable than the earlier version.
The new Datsun GO gets a range of updates and it seems the carmaker has done a pretty good job. At the front, the signature hexagonal grille feature new mesh and the bumper now looks more angular and sportier than ever, giving the front fascia a nice touch. The Japanese automaker has also fitted LED DRLs which further gives the car more personality. Coming to the side profile, the thing immediately comes to notice is the new set of 14-inch diamond cut alloy wheels with fatter tyres enhancing the side stance of the car. They do look so much pretty that you would think worth stretching your budget a little. Things remain pretty much the same at the rear except the new grey strip beneath the number plate and a nice chrome strip at the base of the boot lid. Other than this, the car gets a new Amber orange colour option which does complement the whole styling package. Other colour options remain the same namely Ruby Red, Bronze Grey, Crystal Silver and Opal White.
The interior of the car witnesses a sea of changes. The car gets all black interiors, new dashboard design, revamped front seats and a whole bunch of small but significant changes that makes the car more appealing and user-friendly than before. To begin with, the hatchback now gets a proper lid for the glove box, driver’s side door gets switches to power all the windows as well as electrical adjustment capability for the rear-view mirrors. The instrument console has also been revised with new analogue tachometer. The party trick inside the cabin is the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit by Blaupunkt that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The system is fairly smooth to operate and a whole lot better than the bland aux-in system in the earlier model. There is also a USB and Aux-in slot given under the gear knob.
The car also gets updated front seats which are now reasonably comfortable and way better than connected seats of the previous version. And the space in between is taken away by traditional handbrake as oppose toe the pull-type lever in the old model. Rear seating space is also fair while the 265L boot space is still more than good for the segment it competes in.
The engine under the hood remains the same 1.2L petrol unit that produces 68PS and 104Nm of max torque, mated to 5-speed manual transmission. The car returns satisfactory mileage of 19.83 kmpl. Another talking point this time is the addition of safety aspects. The carmaker has equipped the vehicle with dual airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, rear parking sensors, driver seatbelt reminder and follow-me headlamps as part of the standard safety package.
The Japanese firm despite of all these additions, has priced the car quite sensibly. The new Datsun GO starts from Rs. 3.29 lakhs while top of the line variant is tagged at Rs. 4.89 lakhs, ex-showroom. Looking at the drastic changes this time, it seems Maruti Celerio, Tata Tiago, Maruti Wagon R and 2018 Hyundai Santro will be having tough time ahead. The new Datsun GO feels a more healthy and interesting package and goes beyond the stigma of an unsafe car. In short, it has become easier to recommend than before.

Interior

Kudos to the carmaker, it has now addressed the feedbacks coming from all the quarters. The earlier model was launched barebones and this has changed quite a lot with the newer version. Even the basics have been given importance this time around. What this means is that the twist and pull handbrake has been replaced by a conventional stick we are all used to. The instrument cluster has been updated incorporating a larger analogue tachometer in the display. This is especially important because the older setup makes it hard to determine the revs. Besides, the instrument shows information including digital clock, dual tripmeter, engine running time and average speed of the vehicle.
The plastics used in the newer model is improved yet not of high standard, but we can’t complain much given the price point of the car. The dashboard in the all-black cabin has also been restyled. The treat to the eyes lies at the center console in the form of 7-inch touchscreen infotainment that is powered by Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. That means it gets Google Map Navigation, voice recognition, SMS/WhatsApp/Email Read, Bluetooth, USB, Aux-In as well as radio connectivity. This might really surprise many but the other cars from Renault-Nissan family such as Terrano and Captur don’t get Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. So this may be a nice treat for the first time buyers.
The touchscreen unit is provided by Blaupunkt and is amongst the best one would see in a budget car. The touch response, resolution or graphics is surely going to set the benchmarks in the class. While there isn’t a rear camera offered in the car, you can get one fitted from a dealership as the screen supports camera and will relay the video feed. The rear passengers finally get power windows, the feature which was missing in the old car. Another well thought addition is the electrical adjustment of the ORVM. And then there is new rear wash wipe a feature which is often overlooked by many brands.
However, there are still some misses in the car such as non-adjustable driver seat and day/night mirror. Coming to the comfort and space, the biggest miss in the car is perhaps the non-adjustable headrests. While if you are sitting at the front, you would not complain about the lack of headrests, however, the rear passengers are likely to complain. And for the taller passengers, the integrated headrests will be at the shoulder level, which would be practically unusable for them.
In terms of space, there is nothing special to differentiate between the older and newer model, it’s identical. Datsun GO is known for its space, especially at the rear and it is perfect for a small family. Three adult passengers can easily fit at the rear as oppose to Celerio and Wagon R. However, the middle occupant would not get much legroom, so the car should be better be perceived as a perfect 4-seater. Talking about the boot space, the 265L is still class leading which is one of the USPs of this car. Apart from this, there are several utility storages across the vehicles including the door pads, central floor console and at the rear. Overall, the interiors have been a nice overall package.

Exterior

On the face of it, it might look that the car has not given any update unless there isn’t the new orange colour option in the view. The overall looks have been drastically enhanced and the car can easily grab attention at first sight. And the primary reason for that is the addition of new 14-inch diamond cut alloy wheels which replaced the older steel ones and also feature wider rubber, providing the car an improved stance. The tiny wheels on the earlier model make the car looked comical. The ORVM gets body colour treatment in the update which is a nice move.
At the front, the changes are minors. The car gets solid dab of chrome, larger grille and revamped bumper with more prominent creases. The fog lamps are still missing in the car but what you get this time is the new daytime running LEDs which are brighter than the sibling redi-GO. Apart from this, the bonnet remains sculpted while the large headlamps are identical as well. The rear as against the front end, looks a bit sedate. The carmaker could have included a neat spoiler, however, you still get revised bumper which now houses parking sensors, rear wash wiper and chrome strip at the bottom of the boot lid. The large tail lamps remain the same.
So with the latest facelift, the small hatch will certainly attract more eyeballs than before.

Mileage Running Cost

Being a small hatchback, fuel efficiency becomes one of the top priorities. Nothing has changed in the mileage figures though, the new Datsun GO returns the ARAI certified mileage of 19.83 kms for a liter of fuel which is good looking at class it falls in.

Comfort Suspension

The suspension set-up has also been improved and now more pliant for our road conditions. But you can’t expect ride quality of a premium hatchback, yet it is comfortable enough unless the roads become rough. The steering is light and well suited for rapidly evading pesky motorists but is not super accurate. So if you experience dullness at the front wheels through the corner, don’t be surprised. The body roll is predictable especially if the lanes are changed at high speeds.
As far as ride quality is concerned, it is comfy enough within the urban driving conditions. And if you want more comfort than it is best to keep four adults on board. Driving the car sedately will even out majority of the bumps and thumps out of the cabin. If you are driving the car at high speeds, you wish it could have been more planted.

Engine Performance

The spec sheet remains the same as before. The car comes powered with the same 1.2L 3-cylinder naturally aspirated 12V DOHC EFI petrol engine that produces 68PS and 104Nm of peak torque with the same 5-speed manual transmission doing its duty for transferring the power to the front wheels. This is the same unit that powers Nissan Micra Active and remains the biggest in its class in terms of power and performance.
The engine remains enthusiastic as before with high power to weight ratio. The hatch offers peppy and fun to drive experience especially if the engine is dragged to its redline. A small hitch comes due to limited low-rpm pulling potential. So, one has to really push the accelerator a little hard to get going. But this is something of advantage when you are travelling jam packed or handling the ghats. If you continue to get going, you would not face any problems whizzing in and out of the traffic.
However, the newer model is not as quick as compared to the previous version. Why? Because of the added 150kg of weight and on open stretches the car would run out of breath. And here you would need to plan overtake in advance. But there is nothing to worry much as these cars are meant for pottering within the city premises. Coming to the NVH levels, the carmaker seems to have taken the nasty feedbacks seriously. The engine sound is muffled right to some extent but it does get thrummy if you push it hard. The refinement levels in the facelift has been bettered, there is more cladding so those small pebbles and stones hitting the underbody are now better controlled.

Braking Safety

The braking bite is average and the pedal doesn’t have a sharp bite as there in the competition. The most interesting update comes in the safety department and Datsun might have really surprised many in the auto industry. The carmaker has loaded the new Datsun with standard features such as dual airbags, ABS with EBD, Brake Assist, follow me headlamps and rear parking sensors. This is certainly par with the segment above cars and might attract more first time buyers. So, it seems Datsun has taken the right step in the right direction.
