The specification sheet has been prepared by comparing Datsun Go+ T Petrol with the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga ZXi.

Datsun Go+ Vs Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Design and Exterior)

The Datsun Go+ that has been derived from Datsun Go looks visibly same from the front like the Datsun Go. Both these cars have very good road presence but there is nothing exciting that stands out in terms of design.

The Go+ has a comparatively sharper nose and comes with sharp headlamps and a trapezoidal grille which gets a chrome finish. Ertiga has no chrome elements and has a bulbous and round nose but the overall design looks pleasing. The Ertiga has a comparatively larger wheelbase and looks a tad bigger in comparison.

Due to the more pronounced wheel arches and straight lines of Ertiga, overall, it looks more pleasing in comparison.

Datsun Go+ Vs Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Interiors and Features)

The interiors of Datsun Go+ are similar to the hatchback Datsun Go and are not great in terms of quality. The interiors and equipment level offered show the cost cutting measures that have been taken to keep the price low. Just like the Datsun Go+, Ertiga comes with light beige and grey interiors, but they are of much better quality.

The Ertiga offers 7 seat capacity which the Go+ does not provide. The Go+ is essentially a 5+2 seater vehicle with the rear 2 seats essentially for children. The Ertiga has a longer wheelbase and offers better interior space due to that reason.

Datsun Go+ Vs Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Engine and Gearbox)

The Go+ uses a 3 cylinder pertrol engine whereas the Ertiga comes with a 4 cylinder K-Series VVT petrol engine. The petrol engine on Ertiga is substantially more powerful than the Go+ and offers better power and torque figures. Ertiga also comes with a diesel engine but the Go+ has no diesel variant at present.

In case of both the cars, the engines are mated with a 5 speed gearbox. The Go+ seems underpowered due to its smaller capacity engine but it is no enthusiasts' car and is aimed at private car buyers and taxi market.

Datsun Go+ safety features Vs Maruti Suzuki Ertiga (Mileage and Safety)

The Maruti Suzuki Ertiga comes with ABS, engine immobilizer, central locking and parking assistance features. The Datsun Go+ really deficient in terms of safety features and offers only engine immobiliser and central locking. Due to the 3 cylinder, smaller capacity engine, the Go+ offers a better mileage at 20.6 kmpl as compared to the Ertiga which offers only 16.3 kmpl. The Go+ should be able to lure the cost conscious Indian buyers with its comparatively better mileage.

You can also compare full features of both the cars from here.

Verdict
The Go+ is one the cheapest MPV that the Indian car buyers can get in the market. The product is very well positioned in terms of quality and overall offerings. The pricing is the USP of this car and should have its takers. However, we should note that all this comes at expense of safety features and equipment level. We would like to see a variant of the car that offers a larger capacity engine and safety features that are at par with others cars in this category.
