Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Cons

    Datsun GO

    • New dashboard setup looks much better.
    • Good boot space, ample enough for a short family trip.
    • The exterior changes, especially the new 14-inch alloy wheels, look good.
    • Dual-airbags, ABS, EBD, BA, rear parking sensors and follow me home headlamps are now part of the standard safety kit.
    • The 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is responsive, has a good resolution and supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

    Maruti Alto 800

    • Passenger airbag optional on all variants.
    • Maruti’s wide sales and service network
    • Easy to drive with compact dimensions
    • Fuel efficient with a claimed 22.05 kmpl mileage

    Datsun GO

    • Lack of storage space for the second row
    • Disappointing audio quality with just two speakers
    • Underbody noise insulation still lacking as stones hitting the bottom make a sharp noise.

    Maruti Alto 800

    • No automatic transmission option
    • Stripped out base variant
    • Not very spacious. Taller passengers will have difficulty sitting one behind the other.

Must read articles before buying Datsun GO and Maruti Alto 800

  • The 2018 Datsun GO facelift is offered in a choice of five variants, starting at Rs 3.29 lakh, going up to Rs 4.89 lakh (ex-showroom India). But which one should you put your money on?

    By RaunakJun 18, 2019
  • Datsun ups the automatic game in the compact hatchback segment by giving its GO duo a CVT transmission. Reason enough to bring it back into contention?
