These are some of the attractive Datsun GO features that should entice you to opt for this hatchback in comparison to their peers. The seven-seat configuration inside offers comfortable space in first and second rows but the third row is meant only for kids. Under the hood, it gets the 1.2-litre, petrol engine missing out on the diesel unit and transmission duties are carried over by the five-speed manual gearbox. Datsun GO carries a price tag that fits well within the affordable limit. The hatchback is accessible in 5 different colours - Grey, Ruby, Silver, Sky and White. It certainly has large dimensions as compared to rivals belonging to budget division.
Datsun GO acquires attractive hexagonal honeycomb grille. The chrome surrounds look stylish all the same. The lift type door handles blend seamlessly with Datsun Go exterior. The single wiper is a money saving venture. Deriving design cues from the GO hatchback, it gets an identical front profile and side facet. With the addition of third row, the sub-compact MPV sports give a different rear profile with four creases on the side profile, which makes the car look attractive and alluring. You can experience more creases in the rear areas especially around the tail lamps.
The Japanese quest for maintaining the highest quality standards is evident in Datsun GO interior. The front seats with slim backrests and integrated headrests are comfortable enough. Datsun Go has an extra layer of padding between the two front seats to enable you to store items, if required. The car provides a great informative centre console considering the low pricing of the vehicle. The umbrella-type hand brake and the mobile holder complement each other beautifully. Other Datsun GO features include the digital tachometer and the informative electronic fuel gauge that shows the distance you can travel before you exhaust the fuel.

Datsun GO shares the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol engine with Nissan Micra. The only difference available is better tuning in this particular engine. This allows for greater fuel efficiency. The car is capable of achieving a speed of 100kmph within 13.3 seconds, which is a tremendous achievement for such a small car. The well insulated cabin muzzles sound and vibrations of the 3-cylinder engine thereby paving the way for a comfortable Datsun GO performance. The 5-speed manual Datsun GO transmission is an efficient one by all means.
The speed-sensitive power steering system enables easy Datsun GO handling. The 1.2 litre, three cylinder engine sourced from Micra outputs 68PS at 5000 RPM infers a healthy power to weight ratio for the car weighing 788 kg. This reflects the way GO perform, especially at high and mid revs. The 13-inch tubeless tyres enhance Datsun GO performance levels. The MacPherson struts for the front wheels make riding over the toughest roads quite easy. The ground clearance is 170 mm thereby allowing it comfortable leeway whereas the turning radius of 4.6m makes the Datsun GO an easily maneuverable vehicle.
Safety and Security
The vehicle has disc brakes on the front wheel but lacks the auto braking system. Hence, experiencing wheel lock-ups especially when you brake hard is common. Though the car might tend to change its direction a bit during this procedure, it still manages to feel stable at high speeds. The suspension can make the car feel a bit bouncy on uneven roads. It can be difficult to imagine Nissan providing airbags at this pricing level. Some of the important Datsun GO features are engine immobilizer, child locks, and manual central locking system.
