Nissan’s low-cost brand Datsun officially made its comeback after nearly three decades with the commercial launch of the all-new 2014 Datsun Go hatchback yesterday. While, we were expecting the Go to carry a sticker price of sub-Rs 4 lakh, so as to go head to head with the market leader Alto K10 and the Hyundai Eon in the entry-level hatch segment, we certainly weren’t prepared for the extremely competitive price tag of Rs 3.12 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi.)
Now clearly, to achieve that phenomenal budget pricing, Datsun has ripped most of the creature comforts from the standard hatch and packed in, only the bare necessities in the car. However, to suit the demands of every type of customer, the company has created seven accessory packages to chose from - making it easier for the buyer who would rather not go through the trouble of picking each accessory individually from the long list of options.
We detail all the seven accessory packages below:
- Women Edition
In the Women’s Edition, your Datsun Go hatch will be fixed with a reverse parking sensor, reverse parking camera, remote locking security system, parcel tray, rear window curtain, side window curtain, cushion kit, moon light and body graphics - all at an extra cost.
