The Datsun brand was re-launched by Nissan in July this year. Datsun is known for offering value to its customers. As part of the re-launch program, Datsun has revealed the GO hatchback earlier this year in India. The GO+ is an MPV which is based on the GO platform. The GO+ shares its design language and components with the hatchback version. The GO hatchback will be launched in India early next year followed by the GO+ MPV later. Nissan dealerships are going to sell Datsun cars in India. The GO+ MPV will be first sold on Indonesian soil where MPVs have huge demand.
The GO+ will be the first Datsun car to be launched in Indonesia and is highly anticipated to give stiff competition to the Suzuki Ertiga, Honda Mobilio, Toyota Avanza, etc. The Datsun GO+ is a sub 4-metre MPV which has been designed specifically for markets like Indonesia and also other emerging markets. The GO+ is a 7-seater MPV and is built on a monocoque construction setup. It is expected to feature class leading cabin space like the hatchback version. The dashboard is directly taken from the GO hatchback.
The Datsun GO+ MPV is powered by a 1198cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine which is a de-tuned version of the engine which does duty on the Nissan Micra. It churns out a maximum power of 68 HP and provides a maximum torque of 104 Nm. This engine is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The GO+ MPV has a length of 3995 mm while the width is 1635 mm, height is 1485 mm and the wheelbase is 2450 mm. This vehicle has a kerb weight of 794 kgs. The GO+ features ventilated disc brakes at the front and traditional drum brakes at the rear. This MPV is going to be run on 155/70/R13 tyres. The Indian version of the Datsun GO+ will be powered by a diesel engine as there are no takers for petrol MPVs in India.
