The two cars get styling tweaks and much better interiors for the 2018 model year. The Go hatchback gains a CVT gearbox too.   

Datsun has revealed mid-cycle updates for the Go and Go+, both of which are on sale in Indonesia.

Even though the aesthetic updates given to the two facelifted cars are subtle, they go a long way in adding a dash of flair to the aging design of the Go/Go+. Up front, the signature Datsun grille is now bigger and bolder, the headlamps have been tweaked and the new bumper is much more detailed. The bumper also houses LED DRLs.

On the sides, the ORVMs sport new integrated turn signals and there are new 14-inch alloys too. The rear bumper is all new as well. Inside, the dashboard is heavily redesigned and now features a more modern layout along with a brand-new instrument cluster. The unconventional phone holder from the old model has made way for a much modern infotainment screen. There is a new, conventional handbrake lever too.

Both Go and Go+ get the same updates for 2018, expect for one. For the former, Datsun is now also offering a CVT gearbox option. The engine, however, remains the same, which is a 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol unit producing 67bhp of power and 104Nm of torque.

The cars have gone on sale in Indonesia. The facelifted Go and Go+ should launch in India in the foreseeable future. However, there is also no surety if Datsun will bring new options like CVT and touchscreen infotainment system on the India-spec cars.
