Whether same engine with micra ?

Hello F.M.Siddique !!
Nissan Micra and Datsun Go feature the same engine ie 1198 cc engine delivering power of 68PS. The claimed mileage in case of Datsun Go is 20.63kmpl and that in Micra Active is 19.64kmpl. The mileage factor depends upon many factors including kerb weight, fuel supply system and lot of other parameters. The major difference is with respect to design of the car and features. Datsun Go has slight edge over Micra in this regard. Its a worthy selection as a brand new car.
Datsun Go plus is based on the same platform as Nissan Micra and it also shares the engine specification of Nissan Micra. Both the car are powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine having a displacement capacity of 1198cc. This straight three engine churns out 68bhp of power at 5000rpm and 104Nm of torque at 4000rpm. The engine has been successfully mated to 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. The mileage offered by Datsun Go Plus is better at 20.63kmpl than Micra’s 19.49kmpl.
Datsun Go+ MPV comes with same or identical engine from Nissan Micra i.e. engine with 1198cc delivering power of 67PS and Power of 105Nm but with some refinements leads more fuel economy then Nissan Micra and better load carrying capacity as now same engine have to lift 2 extra passengers. According to my point of view its most proffered to go for brand new car i.e. Datsun Go+ rather then going of same old Nissan Micra because of updated features and minimal flaws.
Datsun Go + MPV and Nissan Micra share the same 1.2L engine with a displacement of 1198cc. However, in both the cars, it has been tuned differently. Thus, in Go+, the power output it cranks off is 67bhp at 5000rpm and the highest torque is 104Nm at just 4000rpm. While in Micra, it comes with a slight improvement and dishes out a healthy power of 75bhp at 6000rpm along with a peak torque volume of 104Nm at 4400rpm. In terms of acceleration, Datsun lags power and end up giving only 150kmph and takes up to 15 to 16 seconds to reach up to 100kmph.
Datsun Go + MPV is powered by a 1.2L engine, which is available in the petrol version while Nissan Micra gets power through two engines; 1.4L petrol and the 1.5L diesel. Both the engines are way ahead than Datsun Go in a head to head comparison. Micra’s engines are more frugal and agile. Both the engines are refined and drivable. On the other hand, Go + engine is comparatively produces less power and torque and it cannot deliver the efficiency required when compared with other cars.
