It's a go for the new Datsun Go!
Better interior, better safety features
Nissan Go

The Datsun Go has been updated and the revised version has substantial improvements, including a safety upgrade.

With the facelifted Datsun Go, the Japanese company hopes to improve the average sales count of the preceding model of around 500 units a month. To date, almost 25 000 Datsun Go variants have found homes in South Africa.
The Datsun Go’s revised fascia features a more modern infotainment system. The front bench also been replaced by two individual seats.
There has been a huge focus on the part of Datsun to improve the Go’s cabin quality and ergonomics. A conventional handbrake has been fitted, doing away with the agricultural and ungainly “umbrella handle” handbrake, which used to protrude from the dashboard.
There’s an all-new touchscreen infotainment system, which is more akin in layout and user experience to that of a smartphone than a “fancy car radio”, ideal for the Go’s tech-savvy intended target market. Also in the mix is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Another nice feature added to the Go’s spec is rear parking sensors.
The Go’s powertrain has been carried over and it’s 1.2-litre 3-cylinder motor produces 50 kW and 104 Nm. Power goes to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. Datsun claims an average fuel economy figure of 5.2 F/100 km.
The massive change, however, is the addition of significant safety features. A second airbag for the front passenger has been added and crucially, an anti-lock braking system (ABS) has been fitted.

The addition of ABS will result in fewer collisions and help inexperienced drivers, in particular. As for improvements to the Go’s structural rigidity, especially around the passenger cell, it is expected that Datsun will still make running upgrades in anticipation of further crash testing being conducted on the upgraded Go by organisations such as NCAP.

Even with a longer wheelbase than most cars in its class, Datsun GO still has a turning radius of only 4.6 metres.

It will be looking at introducing stability control in 2019.
This newer version feels more stable than the previous model and offers a relaxed drive.
The new Go seems to be solidly assembled and finished. The gear action is light and smooth, and the box’s shift quality slick.
Now that safety has been addressed, one can justifiably regard the Datsun Go as a strong all-round contender in the exceedingly price-sensitive budget car segment.
The addition of ABS has huge implications and this should further bolster sales. In terms of interior quality, the difference between the outgoing model and the newcomer is night and day. More convenience features such as the smart and modern infotainment system will also help draw customers in.

The new Datsun Go is starting to look like quite the budget bargain and Datsun Go customers will receive one year’s insurance with their new car, sweetening the deal even further.

Datsun GO Mid R144 500; Datsun GO Lux R165 500; Datsun GO+ 7-seater Mid R154 200; Datsun GO+ 7-seater Lux R175 900; Datsun GO+ Panel Van R155 200. The Datsun Go is sold with a 3-year/100 000 km warranty and an optional service plan.
