Datsun Go to be launched today, measures 3,785mm in length, 1,635mm in width and sits on a wheelbase measuring 2,450mm. It possesses a 3 cylinder, 1198cc petrol engine offering peak power of 67bhp at 5,000rpm and peak torque of 110 Nm at 4,000rpm. This is the same engine doing duty on the Micra which has been tweaked for added efficiency on board the new Go due to which mileage stands at 20 kmpl.
Datsun Go is the first product after revival of the brand. The base model of Datsun Go will receive black bumpers as against body colored bumpers, manually operated windows and will be devoid of both power steering and air conditioning. The mid- level Datsun Go receives air conditioning along with two speaker audio system with AUX-IN while top end Go comes in with power windows in the front, electric power steering, colored bumpers, wheel covers and folding rear seats.
This model is also fitted with trip computer with digital tachometer, tripmeter, distance to empty indicator and fuel efficiency display. This top end Datsun Go is estimated to be launched at a price of Rs 3.80 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). Being an affrdable hatchback means that the Maruti Suzuki Alto and Hyundai Eon will see some tough competition in the new Datsun Go.
