The BS6 Datsun Go starts at Rs 3.99 lakh while the Go+ MPV carries a sticker price of Rs 4.20 lakh for the base variant. Both cars continue with the same 1.2-litre petrol motor as before and come with a 5-speed manual and CVT option
With Datsun releasing the teaser image of the redi-GO a few weeks back, we have been expecting them to launch the car some time this month. While there is no official launch date announced just as yet, they have, however, launched the BS6 compliant GO and GO+. The hatchback offering is priced starting Rs 3.99 lakh and the top-spec variant demands Rs 6,25 lakh. The compact MPV, on the other hand, ranges from Rs 4.20 lakh to Rs 6.70 lakh. All prices ex-showroom.
Both cars now get cleaner BS6 compliant iterations of the same old 1.2-litre petrol motor. This engine comes paired with a 5-speed manual and a CVT option. The former makes 67bhp and 104Nm, while the latter is marginally punchier developing 76.4bhp. Torque rating for the CVT remains the same at 104Nm. While all other carmakers offer AMTs in this segment, Datsun is the only brand to fit both these cars with a CVT.
The GO and the GO+ remain largely unchanged from the model before it. The exterior design as well as the feature list has been carried forward. Top-spec variants of both cars come with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Other features include electrically adjustable ORVMs, rear wipe/wash, 14-inch diamond cut alloy wheels and LED DRLs. Safety features include dual front airbags, ABS, EBD, Brake Assist and reverse parking assist.
Like a lot of other carmakers, Datsun too is offering several finance options and schemes to stimulate customer demand. The company has announced a ‘Buy now Pay later’ scheme as per which customers can choose to start their EMIs in 2021. Customers can also get 100% finance, low EMI, and EMI assurance benefits.
