Datsun Go (2014)Mon, 15 Jul 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Datsun has unveiled its new Go ahead of its release in India early next year.
Designed at Nissan's global Design Center in Atsugi, Japan, the Go is the first model to be produced since Datsun's revival as a low-cost brand. The five-door hatchback is expected to be "a category up" in its price range of below INR 400,000 (around $6,700).
Measuring in at 3,785mm long, 1,635mm wide, 1,485mm high and sitting on a wheelbase of 2,450mm, the five-seater Go is designed to cultivate a new Datsun aesthetic that will be followed by future models. At the front, it features a hexagonal honeycombed grille with chrome surrounds and chunky, angular headlamps.
Inside, it is designed to be compact yet spacious with plenty of headroom while offering an expanded front bench seating configuration. There's also a Mobile Docking Station to connect smartphones.
The Datsun Go will also be exported to Indonesia, Russia and South Africa, with models individually developed for different markets but following "a common inspiration".
More details will be released closer to the Go's release date.
