How is the performance of Datsun Go?

Powering the Datsun Go is the same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine from the Nissan Micra. The state of tune however, is different. Datsun Go is Tuned for better fuel efficiency, the Datsun Go’s engine is able to produce 68PS of power and 104Nm of peak torque. The Datsun GO offers a speed-sensitive electronic power steering system, which is well designed. It is convenient for both – city as well as highway duties. The gearbox has precise throws but feels a tad notchy.
The highly efficient 1.2 Liter petrol engine of Datsun GO delivers tremendous power and torque at high revs which results very good acceleration and pick up. It powers car to cross the 100 kmph speed barrier in just 16 seconds from standstill and to touch the top speed mark of 160 kmph.
The mileage of Datsun GO is also very impressive. Its 1.2 Liter power mill is integrated with an electronic gasoline fuel injection system which results very good fuel efficiency. It delivers around 17 kmpl mileage in city traffic while on highways you can easily get above 20 kmpl mileage. Its ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) certified mileage is 20.63 kmpl.
My experience with Datsun GO is also very good. It is a perfect combination of power, pick-up, mileage and comfort. Just put your foot down at the accelerator and feel the power of this car. Its counter balance system minimizes the noise and vibration and gives a very smooth and comfortable ride.
