2014 Datsun GO Review

Datsun India launched its maiden product the GO hatchback yesterday in the entry-level hatchback space. The GO is targeted at the first time car buyers, young aspirational individuals that the folks at Datsun call ‘risers’. The company understands that young drivers or car owners are looking for individuality with their vehicles and with car customisation catching up in India very well, Datsun has provided a host of special packages that buyers can choose from to make their GO aesthetically and ergonomically more appealing.

Datsun has introduced special packages that will go on sale soon. What the company has essentially done is taken certain accessories and clubbed them together to offer additional features for different target customers, which can be added to any variant of the car. Let’s take a look at all the packages on offer.

1) Go Women Edition
