The Datsun GO comes fully loaded with considerable improvements, including a safety upgrade. With a robust body, strong and dynamic lines, distinctive headlamps and impressive arches, its bold design reflects its character. We review the all-new Datusn GO at Nissan The Glen.

Exterior & interior

Its D-cut grille with chrome lining shows the GO’s strong character. From the athletic rear shoulders to its cosy cabin space, the Datsun GO is stylish.

Its signature elongated 3D-shaped headlamps feature a multifaceted design, framed by a metallic accent to provide a premium and stylish look, and the daytime running lamps will keep you visible all day long (available on selected models).

Keeping in step with modern trends, the GO boasts bold tailored cues that attract the right attention. It has the right mix of strong, aggressive lines and seductive curves that make it a fashion statement.

The contours of the car draw attention to the honeycomb-style grille, which features a chrome surround that frames the Datsun logo, giving an even more striking impression to the D-cut grille. Individually adjustable front seats for the driver and the front seat passenger provide total comfort.

Safety

In the event of a front-end crash, the driver and passenger airbags, in conjunction with the seat belt, will help minimise the impact on the driver and passenger from the collision. When the airbag automatically deploys and inflates in a front-end crash, it mitigates serious head injuries.

Power & performance

The Datsun GO comes with a powerful 1.2 litre engine, using race-car engine technology adapted for maximum torque of 104Nm and power of 50kW.

It is integrated with cutting-edge technologies for its drive train. These include a newly-developed and powerful engine, superior front suspension, ventilated disc brakes and an electronically-controlled accelerator, enabling more control and a smoother driving experience. In addition, the speed-sensitive power steering gives you better handling and control.

And despite its wide wheelbase, the Datsun GO has a conveniently small turning radius. To top it all, it delivers excellent fuel efficiency, with a consumption of only 5.2 litres/100km.
