Datsun, the cost-effective brand from Nissan, has announced that it would launch the highly anticpated GO+ MPV on January 15, 2015 in India. Being based on the already launched GO hatchback, it would be the country's first sub 4-m MPV. This second offering from Datsun is expected to priced in a bracket of Rs. 4-5.5 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi).

Dastsun GO+ is going to create a whole new segment - Compact MPV or entry-level MPV - with its arrival in the country. As far as styling and appearence is concerned, it appears pretty similar to the GO hatch, except for the newly added third row. The company is quite strict on budget and hence offering only 13-inch steel wheels; no alloys for the time being. Coming to the interior cabin, it seems to be designed pretty well albeit sourced directly from the GO hatch. The Datsun GO+ MPV boasts a dual-tone dashboard, charging sockets but surprisingly no music system. The third row of seating is strictly for kids due to being compact. It can be utilized for creating more boot space for luggage by folding it.

Datsun, despite being criticised heavily over the unsafe GO hatchback, is not willing to offer either ABS or Airbags with the GO+ MPV even as optional features. The company is launching the MPV in petrol fuel trim only with the GO's 1.2L motor. The 1.2L, 4-cylinder petrol engine sourced directly from the GO hatch is retuned to obtain extra torque for the MPV. It would churn out a maximum power of 69 PS and peak torque of 105Nm, while being paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox. The GO+ MPV ain't got any direct competitors in the country, but it would still compete with the Maruti Ertiga and likes.
