Datsun GO, GO+ launched with Vehicle Dynamic Control technology

By Divyank Kushagra Bansal | on June 3, 2019

The 'Vehicle Dynamic Control' technology is Datsun's version of traction & stability control; Datsun GO additionally gets a new 'Vivid Blue' exterior colour option.

A while back, Datsun had updated its GO hatchback and GO+ MPV with the mandatory list of safety features like rear parking assist, dual front airbags, ABS & EBD. In 2018, both models received some styling updates and a comprehensive revision to their equipment list. The most significant changes included a new dashboard layout, redesigned AC vents, a new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, electrically-adjustable ORVMs, rear power windows and a reworked instrument cluster.

Now though, Datsun has enhanced the driving dynamics & safety quotient of the GO and GO+ with the addition of its Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) technology, which is essentially the addition of traction & stability control. With this, the GO and GO+ become the only cars in their respective segments to offer electronic traction control. The VDC, in essence, works in tandem with the car's existing safety equipment like the ABS and EBD, to monitor drive aspects like wheel speed, steering wheel position & lateral acceleration with the help of multiple onboard sensors. With this, the system can alter the car's speed and handling characteristics if it senses the car undergoing oversteer/understeer.

Furthermore, Datsun has introduced a new 'Vivid Blue' exterior colour option for the GO hatchback which joins its existing five-colour palette. At this point, we are yet to receive official word on which variants of the GO and GO+ will get the VDC technology, and how much will it affect the prices.
