Datsun GO Plus review

Overview

Introduction: 


Since its revival in March 2014, Datsun has launched 4 models (GO, GO+, mi-Do & on-Do) across 4 markets (India, Indonesia, South Africa & Russia) and started production at 3 plants in 3 countries (India, Indonesia & Russia). Quite symmetrical we must say! However in India, we only have two Datsuns as of now in our market. GO was the first one that made its way here and GO+ was launched few months after that.


The GO+ is a compact alternative to the larger MPVs as well as a larger alternative to the regular hatchbacks. The company quotes GO+ as an 'estate / station wagon' that offers 5+2 seating. But it wouldn't be out of place to call it a 5-seater with a large boot (vis-a-vis an optional 7-seater MPV).


Pros: 


1. The only car in its price range to offer a third row. It can accommodate a total of 7 passengers. All other options in the price range are 5 seater hatchbacks.


2. The third row can be folded down to be used as a large 347 liter boot. 


3. Has a few upmarket features like the Follow me Headlamps, a comprehensive Multi Information Display, Gear Shift Indicator and Speed Sensitive Wipers which are offered right from the base trim. 


Cons: 


1. Bare basic features on offer. Even on the top end variant you don’t get a proper infotainment system.


2. Cost cutting has led to compromise not only on the feature list but also the safety. 


3. The Datsun brand is new t the Indian market and the image that it has generated around it is negative. Both in terms of safety & quality. 


4. Datsun utilizes Nissan’s after sales network which lacks reach. 


Stand Out Features: 


1. Very high claimed fuel economy of over 26 kmpl. The highest of a 7 seater MPV. The figure is high when compared to its hatchback competitors as well. 


2. Practicality of a 7 seater in a nifty size under 4 meters.  


Exteriors:



The Go+ is basically a Go with extra space in the rear – so when seen head on, it looks exactly like the hatch counterpart. Everything from the hexagonal grille with a black honeycomb mesh, the V in the bonnet to the angular headlamps with metal inserts and the windscreen are identical. We’ve always like the simple yet effective design of the Go, thus a thumbs up for the Go + as well. 



In profile, the Go+ forces you to believe how small a 7-seater(5+2 to be precise) can get. From outside, the Datsun Go+ can easily pass of as a mini-estate having a bulbous rear attached to the Go hatchback. It doesn’t look like an afterthought add-on job like we’ve seen on some compact-sedans in market currently and looks very well fused.


Side profile of the GO+ is an angle from which you can figure out that this is a wagon, at least aspires to be one. Despite being a 7-seater, the GO+ doesn't have a large footprint. Thanks to the difference of only 210 mm between the GO and GO+. Also, the width and wheelbase are the same. So, don’t expect it to do an Ertiga or Mobilio for you.


We didn’t like the huge wheel well gaps that are glorified by the tiny 155/70 R13 tyres. If not 15’, at least 14’ tyres should have been there. At the rear, this gap exposes everything from the fuel tank, suspension to the exhaust pipe assembly.



As we stated in the starting, this is basically a stretched Go, therefore Datsun has pulled the bumper further back – so the rear overhang is quite prominent. The tailgate is extremely light; in fact it’s the lightest unit we’ve ever seen. 


There isn't a separate keyhole or lever for opening the boot – that has to be unlocked only through the driver's side release.


The number plate on the Go+ has been moved to the tailgate (Go’s housed on the rear bumper). The rear is clean and the overall styling does look convincing. Overall, the Go+ is a decent looking offering that looks well-proportioned.




 


Interiors:



Except the 3rd row, inside of the GO+ is identical to the hatch sibling. The dash and door panels are of 'greige' (mix of grey + beige) colour. Though plastic quality is very basic and just above satisfactory, sturdiness of the panels is a point worth mentioning here.



We quite liked the black centre console that looks quite finished and smoother than the rest of the dashboard which carries a grainy texture. Quality of the plastic panels is decent & the GO+ uses the Sunnys-shaped door handles (save for the chrome).


The GO+ uses an old school 'stick' type locking knobs, which might remind you of the car in which u learnt driving, but admiring them is a bit difficult. Central locking is available on the top-end variant only.  


The roof feels damn flimsy. There's a lot of crunching & crinkling when you push the lining a few inches before hitting the roof. The sun visors have been carried over from the GO and don't get vanity mirrors.




The Go+'s wheelbase is longer than most of our hatchbacks. As a result, there’s ample space in both the rows. What we also liked is the decent shoulder and headroom. Ingress and egress is convenient. Corners of the dashboard slope inward, which is boon for older drivers who sit first and then swing their legs. Though, an adjustable steering would have made it very comfortable.



GO+’s front seats are 'connected' to each other - like the HM Ambassador. The driver's chair is a conventional one, it's the front passenger's seat that has an extension to fill the gap. Datsun says that area in-between is useful for placing knick knacks & handbags. But we think –it’s not that thoughtful because in case someone tries to sit there(which we’re sure many would), can be risky.


The seats feel offers ample comfort and feels more foamy than cushiony. It gets integrated headrests and the seat cushioning remains thin. Knees of the rear occupant can be felt through the seat, which’s annoying on certain occasions.


Performance:


Petrol: 




The compact MPV is powered by the familiar 3-cylinder, 1.2-liter petrol from the GO & Micra Active hatchbacks. It churns out the same 67 BHP @ 5000 rpm & 104 Nm of torque @ 4000 rpm. The ARAI puts its fuel economy at 20.62 kmpl that’s just 0.01 kmpl lower than the GO.



Despite the same motor churning out the same number of horses as in the Go, that too having an added 20 kilograms to pull, the Go+ doesn’t gives you a chance to complain. The motor has been re-tuned, but the altered ECU tune hasn’t changed the eager nature of the three pot mill. Engineers at Nissan have done a great job in enhancing the overall drivability and refinement of the motor.


Thanks to its healthy power and torque to weight ratios, Go+’s engine feels quite peppy and the throttle is responsive too. The MPV doesn't feel sluggish, although continuous downshifting helps might irritate you a bit. It’s reasonably quick in a dash to 100 kmph and able to easily attain & sustain 120 kpmh. Though we don’t recommend going over that speed. Period.


NVH & Insulation is better than Go hatch, but engine as well as wind noise permeate through the cabin easily. Not just motor's gruff note, you can even hear the exhaust as well, which we found very irritating. The suspension is also noisy, accompanied by excessive tyre noise on bad roads.


Ride and Handling:




Go+ offers a really pliant ride. Its suspension has been tuned to deal with the greater load at the rear, but seems quite pliant and absorbent overall. The light controls make it very easy to drive within the city and the small turning radius of 4.6 meters is like icing on the cake.


The steering is light enough at low speeds, and weighs up when you hit the highway. Like other electronic units, this doesn’t feel too nervous or unsure at higher speeds.


The MPV is not a corner carver and isn’t meant to be one either. Body roll is quite evident during the drive. At higher speeds, the car feels wafty and, on uneven highways, becomes bouncy at the rear.


We would recommend upsizing the tyres as the stocks ones are too puny for the GO+. Also, they are produced by an unknown Strada brand. Upgrading them to a 175 size from a reputable manufacturer is what we would suggest.



Safety: 


Safety is one of the biggest concerns with the Go +. When its younger sibling, the Datsun Go, was put through the Global NCAP crash test, the results were dismal. It scored zero stars and the testing authority claimed that even if the Go were to be tested with airbags, the results would bear no difference. The car's structure was just so bad. 


The Go + is similar to the Go in terms of structure and this is where our concerns lie. 


Datsun had to trade off a features to keep the costs in check and safety seems to have taken the biggest brunt. While the Go + is sold with an optional driver airbag, we highly recommend looking for a safer alternative. 



Variants: 


The feature list of the Datsun Go +, even on the top end variant is small. The Go + is offered in a total of 5 trim levels. 


The base trim (D) gets a few stand out features like the follow me home lamps and 3rd row seats. However, the airconditioning is available only on the next (A) trim. You do miss out on power steering here which is offered on the A (ESP) variant. ESP standing for electronic power steering. 


The one with an AUX input with 4 speakers media system and phone dock is found on the (T) trim. The AUX is the only option for your media requirements as there is no option for a USB, CD or Bluetooth input. The USB on offer is only for charging your device.  Along with this, the (T) trim offers power windows. 


The only safety feature on offer is a driver side airbag on the top end T (O). We highly recommend opting for this variant. 



Verdict:




Though Datsun insists on calling it a seven-seater, the Go+ isn’t exactly a proper one. The third row can only accommodate luggage and can't really be used to seat any adult. But if you look at it as a five-seater, with a decent amount of luggage space, then the Go+ makes more sense.
