After the initial unveiling of the Datsun brand and its first product this generation – the ‘Go’ – the sub 4 Lakh warrior from the Renault-Nissan alliance has been spotted testing in Chennai.
Essentially a restyled,rebranded and detuned version of the previous generation Nissan Micra, the Go is expected to contribute to Nissan’s sales in India. By 2016 Nissan hopes that half of its sales will come from India.
The Go does not skimp on power windows or USB/Phone connectivity in its standard stereo and the engine is the same 1.2L three cylinder engine.
Of course, the Datsun Go is also based on the Renault-Nissan ‘V’ Platform.
