The Go has ruffled a few feathers with its well-formulated package. But how does it stack up against the Maruti Suzuki Celerio and the Hyundai i10?

Datsun Go vs Maruti Celerio vs Hyundai i10
You have to give Nissan Datsun credit for its approach with the Go. The company is entering a segment that will drop the axe if one misses the plot. And knowing that, instead of taking the tried and tested route, Datsun is attempting to make a mark for itself by offering a package it thinks is the perfect fit for a first time car buyer… no less, no more.

And we agree the Go as an entry-level car works well. But, can it also ruffle feathers in a segment above; among cars that are pricier but similar in size and value? To find out, we have compared the new Maruti Suzuki Celerio and the Hyundai i10 with the Go on what they offer. Here goes…

Ideally, we’d move to the features much later but with the Go, it’s the most standout aspect. To stick to the very tempting sub- Rs 4 lakh price tag announcement, Datsun decided to cut a few corners. The ORVMs have to be manually adjusted from the outside, there is no conventional stereo system, the front seats are almost like a bench and because of that, there are no cup holders. Moreover, the rear gets archaic seatbelts and the Go rides on 13 inch wheels. For a first time buyer, Datsun is hoping that these will not be make-or-break aspects.

Datsun has been very smart with the noticeable features it provides, though. Everyone uses a smartphone these days, so Datsun has provided the Go with a mobile docking station with Aux-in for in-car entertainment. Features like a gearshift indicator and distance to empty readout are useful for first time buyers, and a bench for the front seat creates a possibility of occupying more passengers. It gets power windows up front and power steering and air conditioning was standard on the car we drove. Also Read: Datsun Go: Review

 

The Datsun Go is powered by the same 1.2-litre 3-cylinder petrol mill from the Micra mated to the same 5-speed manual transmission but comes detuned at 68PS in the Datsun. The extra power has been traded for better efficiency and the skinny 13 inch wheels complement it in this aspect. Datsun claims an ARAI certified mileage of 20.63kmpl. The Go measures at 3,785mm x 1,635mm x 1,485 mm (LxWxH) and has a 2,450mm wheelbase. It is the largest car in this class and has the longest wheelbase too.  And finally, the Go has a boot space of 265 litres which is also the best in class.
