Datsun’s Go was the first car launched by Nissan under the Datsun brand in the entry level hatchback segment. The Go was launched to take on established entry-level hatchbacks like the Maruti Alto and Hyundai Eon. The Datsun Go offers excellent value and class leading space in a rather intriguing package. The only thing letting the Go down is poor brand connect and network in smaller towns where entry level hatchbacks rule the roost. The Datsun Go price ranges from Rs. 3.24 to 4.05 lakh (Ex-showroom Delhi).

Can the revival of Datsun with the Go be enough to go up against the might of the Hyundai Eon?
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.
Lets start with styling. The Datsun Go and the Hyundai Eon, although priced very similarly, are styled very differently.

Datsun Go offers space of a large car in the price of basic hatchback and hence, offers tremendous value for money. Styling of Go is of a typical hatch though the bulbous frontage tries to aggravate its actual footprints. The nose is low slung and shapely headlamps offer decent illumination. The cabin of Go is decent place to be in if you are not looking beyond the basics. Of course, quality could have been better but then when you consider the price range of Rs 3.29-4.24 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), this niggle doesn’t hold its ground. Under the hood, Datsun Go is powered by 1.2-liter petrol engine making the output of 68PS/104Nm and come mated to the 5-speed manual transmission which sends the drive to the front wheels of the Go. In Indian market, the Datsun Go is up against the likes of Maruti Alto and Alto K10, Hyundai Eon, and Renault Kwid among others.
