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 is now optional on all variants: While the Alto gets a driver airbag as standard, it can now be had with an optional front co-passenger airbag across all variants as well. Two airbags at the front reduces the chances of injury to both front occupants. CarDekho recommends all buyers to opt for variants with dual front airbags.
    • Maruti’s wide sales and service network: Maruti Suzuki's extensive sales and service network makes servicing and owning the car a hassle-free experience.

    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: The Alto’s 0.8-litre engine can only be had with a 5-speed manual transmission. AMT adds to the driving convenience, hence Maruti Suzuki should have offered it on the updated Alto.
    • Stripped out base variant: The Alto’s base variant misses out on essential features like power steering, front power windows and air conditioner.
