The Datsun GO Plus is a large budget MPV that is based on the GO hatchback. As such, the two vehicles share the same design language. Things like the design of the headlamps, tail lamps, grille and alloys are similar. The GO Plus has a wheelbase of 2,450mm which is the same as the GO hatchback. However, the GO Plus has a longer overall length of 3,995 mm, that allows for more room on the inside.
The Datsun GO Plus has a grey and black interior colour theme with fabric upholstery for all the variants. This is in contrast to the GO hatchback that has an all-black interior. The rest of the equipment remains the same across the two vehicles. There is a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The third row has two seats that can be used to seat two children or folded to free up some room in the luggage compartment. With all rows up, the boot space is 48 litres and with the third row folded it is 347 litres.
The GO Plus comes powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine that is also seen in the Datsun GO. Power and torque outputs remain the same as well. The manual version of the car develops 67hp while the CVT version generates 77hp. Torque output 104Nm for both transmission options. A small difference can be observed in the rpm at which this output is achieved, the manual achieves it at 4000rpm and the CVT at 4400rpm.
The Datsun GO Plus can be had with a 5-speed manual transmission as standard, while a CVT gearbox is offered in the higher T & T(O) variants. The CVT option is not only easier to drive in traffic but also produces more power compared to the manual variant.
Braking duties are taken up by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear. In terms of safety features, you get driver and passenger airbags, central locking, ABS, EBD and VDC. The car also complies with side crash and pedestrian safety regulations.
The manual variant of Datsun GO Plus has a claimed mileage of 19.02kmpl while the CVT has a mileage of 18.57kmpl. The MPV is very frugal for daily use and you will not have to make frequent trips to the fuel station.
