Datsun GO Plus Nice Car For The Price But Not Flawless
More for less is what most of the Indians strive for. The MPV segment has been steadily growing for the past few years and new players are regularly becoming the part of this space. MPVs are known for people carriers and best for large families. Datsun GO Plus is the car which has been created on the same lines and targeting especially the new car buyers. My family was also looking for such a car with large space. We were working on to choose between Maruti Ertiga and Datsun GO Plus and finally, we chose the second one. The most important reason was the pricing. Though Maruti Ertiga is feature loaded and there isn't any doubt about that, but even if you choose the base variant, it is over Rs. 1 lakh expensive than the top end variant of Datsun GO Plus. Yeah, you get that right, the top model of Datsun GO Plus is cheaper than the base model of Ertiga. And this was the most striking thing about this car.
The second reason was the 20kmpl mileage of the petrol variant which was also higher than the Ertiga's 17kmpl. The engine of Datsun GO Plus produces decent power but the engine noise filters into the cabin. Also let me remind you, contrary to what the information floating around the web this vehicle is not a proper 7-seater, the third row can either accommodate huge luggage or small children of 7-8 years. Also, with affordability comes the compromise of safety as you will not find ABS in the car, however, there is optional driver's side airbag available on the T variant. So if you are looking for a large family car which is spacious, fuel efficient and affordable, Datsun GO Plus might fit into your requirements. But make sure you ok with the above-mentioned flaws.
