The Datsun GO promises to add a little thrill to your daily driving demands. Put your foot down and feel the perky power deliver, while frugal fuel efficiency helps you cruise right past the petrol station.
There’s a little bit of race car in every Datsun GO. Its 1.2-Litre engine is the largest in its class, borrowing “perfect circle bore machining” from race car technology to deliver class-leading power and torque. You’ll love the get-up-and-go, while a counterbalance system minimizes noise and vibration to give you a quiet, smooth ride.
Datsun GO gets and impressive 20.6 km/L – competitive in its segment, even though Datsun GO is bigger inside and out. That’s a smart package.
Step on the accelerator and notice how smoothly it responds. That’s because it’s controlled electronically – not by a cable – which also means less maintenance and lower emissions.
Sometimes you want more steering assist, other times not so much. The system in Datsun GO has it all figured out by adjusting the level of power assist according to how fast you’re going. At lower speeds, it gives you more assist, so it’s easier to park and manoeuvre. At higher speeds, steering is tighter, for more control.
As you grab the next gear on the 5-speed manual transmission, you’ll appreciate the positive engagement and comfortable placement of the gear shift knob. Up and out of the way, it donates its extra space for the comfort of your legs and feet.
Eventually, your Datsun GO has to stop, and to make sure you can do that safely, we use 22 mm ventilate disc brakes in the front, the largest in the class. The brake system helps reduce brake “fade” from overheating, which means more secure, consistent stopping and a longer life for your brakes.
Even with a longer wheelbase than most cars in its class, Datsun GO still has a very small turning radius – handy when you need to make a 3-point turn on a narrow street.
