In a few days time from now, Indian auto-enthusiasts will get their first look at Datsun's second offering in the country Go+ MPV. Datsun, Nissan's low-cost brand is all set to pull the wraps off its much anticipated Go+ in the Indian market on 15 January, to become one of the few cars to enter domestic market in the first month of the New Year.
Datsun Go+, the second offering from Datsun's stable after Go hatchback has been in the news for quite a while now. For starters, Go+ MPV measures 3,995mm in length, 1,635mm in width, and 1,490mm in height. It comes seated on a wheel base of 2,450mm and gets the power from 1.2-litre engine coupled to a five speed manual gearbox.
As its name indicates, Go+, a model based on Datsun Go+ hatchback will have more than a passing resemblance to its small sibling, not just the exterior styling, but also the interior. The Go+ will get features like follow-me-home headlamps, spinal support seats; tear drop wipe function for the wipers. Unfortunately, here too Datusn failed to offer safety features like airbags and ABS. Not to forget, Datusn Go was recently at the receiving end after it failed to score Global NCAP crash tests.
Go+, a sub-four meter car, will rival Maruti Ertiga, Chevrolet Enjoy, Nissan Evalia and Honda Mobilio in India.
Speaking of the price, expect the car to get a price tag in the range of ₹4.5 -6.5 lakh as it will reap the benefit of a sub-four metre car. Go+ MPV is already on sale in Indonesia, where it is priced at Rp85 million (₹4.42 lakh) for base variant and Rp102.9 million (₹5.36 lakh) for the top-end model.
