Nissan has launched the Datsun Go+ sub 4-meter MPV in India ,at a starting price of Rs 3.79 Lakhs.But instead of calling it a compact MPV , Nissan would be describing it as compact family wagon, for strategic reasons.
On design, The Datsun Go+ is almost entirely based on the Go, whether it’s the exterior or the interior, and comes with the same features and equipment.The interior is rather simple , with only basic features provided . The front and middle row seats provide good head and legroom , but the same cannot be said about the rear.Though cost cutting measures are evident , this can be neglected due to the almost unbelievable price tag it comes with .
What cannot be accepted is the indifference that manufacturers show towards safety. If Datsun had provided abs and airbag even with a slight premium, it would have still made the Go+ more desirable than it is now.
Mechanically , the Datsun Go+ will be powered by a peppy 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder mill , capable of producing 68PS of peak power and 104Nm of peak torque.
The Datsun Go+ fall in to an all new segment in the Indian automobile space , and it goes with out saying the car has no direct competition as of now. It will compete with the likes of Hyundai Grand i10 and the Maruti wagon R , as both of them fall in to a similar price category.
Even with the lesser features , We can say that Nissan has got almost everything right with the Datsun Go+. It falls in a great price bracket , has no competition and is fair to say, it looks more desirable than any cars at the price.This will help to attract much more buyers from the larger Indian middle-class families. Strange what a simple addition of a 3rd row seat could do to a car.
