Can the revival of Datsun with the Go be enough to go up against the might of the Hyundai Eon?

 

Datsun Go vs Hyundai Eon Comparison

 

 

The Datsun Go is the newest entrant into the cutthroat sub Rs 4 lakh hatchback segment, and keen readers of ZigWheels might remember how it did manage to impress us quite a bit recently. With a zesty engine, decent handling, good space (for its class) and a general feel good factor about it, the Go is a pretty potent machine to go up against the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Hyundai Eon. We put the Datsun Go up against the Hyundai Eon to see if Japan’s resurrection could combat Korea’s dominance.

 

 

Datsun Go vs Hyundai Eon Comparison Side

 

 

Lets start with styling. The Datsun Go and the Hyundai Eon, although priced very similarly, are styled very differently. Where the Eon adopts the recent global trend in egg shaped hatchbacks, which maximise interior space while keeping exterior dimensions to a minimum, the Go adopts a more conventional strategy. The Go is not only a larger vehicle than the Eon but also looks more balanced in terms of overall design. Where the Eon’s short and rounded nose gives the car a more upright and ‘tallboy’ look, the Datsun Go’s elongated nose gives the car a more mature feel. The larger dimensions also make the Datsun look more expensive than it actually is.

The chalk and cheese differences in design continue along to the rear of the car. Where the Eon features large vertically stacked tail lamps that merge into the rounded boot area, the Go features a slight stubby boot section and large conventionally placed tail lamps. The slightly stubby boot design also helps the Go when it comes to boot space. Where the Eon’s boot is small and as expected of a tiny hatchback, the Go’s boot is big enough to fit a rather oversized automotive journalist in decent comfort, although we do not encourage such practices.

Datsun has revived itself with its all-new entry level Go. With attractive pricing and a good mechanical package, the Go makes an ideal buy for the first time new car buyer. The Hyundai Eon on the other hand is the cheapest Hyundai one can buy and is one of the Go's biggest rivals. We pip them against each other to see who comes out on top.
