Datsun Go+ MPV, initiating new sub-compact MPV segment, is offered in a spread of four variants – D, D1, A and T, but none of the trims add ABS to the car. Top of the line variant gets one Airbag as option. Go+ can be differentiated from its hatchback sibling essentially by the longer bodywork and flexible third row seating that is best suited for children, pets and snack baskets.
Datsun Go+ MPV is dubbed as a Compact Family Wagon.
The second product wearing Datsun monicker in India has 3,995 mm length, 1,635 mm width and 1,490 mm height, 2,450 mm wheelbase, good 170 mm ground clearance and appreciable 4.6 m turning radius (which helps manoeuvre and park better in city conditions). The car has plenty of room, especially to relax the legs, in front as well as second row. It’s the third row that is quite discouraging to seat an adult.
Basic features in sub-4 metre Datsun Go+ MPV include power steering, front power windows, manual central locking, mobile docking station, manual AC system and dual tone interior colour scheme.

Power is drawn from the same 3-cylinder 1.2 litre petrol engine doing duty in Datsun Go hatchback, that produces 67 bhp max power @ 5,000 rpm and 104 Nm peak torque @ 4,000 rpm. Even the transmission system is carried over from the smaller offering, the 5 speed manual gearbox. The motor is certified to deliver 20.62 kmpl mileage in ARAI standard test conditions. Datsun Go+ MPV can manage to clock 100 kmph in under 16 seconds and reach top speed of around 150 kmph.
