Datsun Go takes on Maruti Alto and Hyundai Eon, comparing tech specs

 

Maruti Alto and Hyundai Eon are soon to get a keen competitor in the form of Nissan Datsun Go, a budget hatchback which is slated for official debut in India this month. Nissan Datsun Go will take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Alto K10 and the Hyundai Eon as the company did earlier confirm the top end variant shall be made available at a sub Rs 4 lakh price range.

Datsun Go hatchback will receive a 1.2 litre petrol engine offering peak power of 74 bhp and peak torque of 104 Nm which will be mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Standing 3,785 mm in length, 1,635 mm in width, 1,485 mm of height and based on a wheelbase of 2,450 mm from the Nissan Micra, the upcoming Datsun Go will claim fuel efficiency of 20.6 kmpl and will be offered in exterior colors of white, silver, red and blue.

datsun-go-tech specs (1)Nissan has already started accepting pre orders of this upcoming Datsun Go hatchback which debuts on March 19 in India with an advance payment of INR 11,000. The new Go will be a well designed car where its exterior design is concerned, while interiors will be frugal as the company has made all possible efforts to keep costs low.

datsun-go-tech specs (2)Where cost cutting measures are concerned, the new Datsun Go will have to do with just a single wiper, glove compartments without covers and no power windows at the rear. The new Go will also not receive basic safety features such as ABS and air bags which will be offered as an option.
