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.

Editor's View of Datsun GO
Best-in-segment passenger and luggage space, peppy petrol motor, easy to drive and manoeuvre in the city
Cost cutting too obvious, high NVH levels, safety features not offered as standard
The Datsun Go is a very good entry-level hatchback. While it is more spacious and more comfortable than the competition, it does suffer from cost cutting measures.

Datsun GO Highlights
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.
