Few people in the market are spreading these rumours any update.
I don't think it's a rumour - we now have the answer a couple of posts below yours. It has to be the Datsun Go+ sub-4m 5+2 seater that is being readied for launch.

It is indeed the Go+ being tested here. The rear bumper seems to offer just a little bit more protection to the hatch and tail lamps when compared to the Go.

It would be better if Datsun throw out the last row of "seats", add some much needed features, include safety features as optional and market this car as a low cost station wagon instead of passing it off as a "7-seater MPV".

A quick test drive of the Go+ later, I can say it is a worthy contender in terms of practicality. It scores over the Kwid by giving a 1.2L engine for the Kwid's 800cc.

However equipment levels and interior packaging is much worse than even the Nano. For basic creature comforts such as AC, Power steering and music system one has to start looking at least two to three variants up, and the base price of < 3L quickly loses its sheen. Also the dashboard design ensures an aftermarket music system will actually look aftermarket too.

So if you value practicality over looks, it might be an interesting buy. However if you want a better interior, please look elsewhere.

Rumour: Datsun GO might get a 1.0-litre engine

Datsun India is reportedly planning to replace the 1.2-litre engine that currently powers the Go hatchback with a 1.0-litre engine. The new 1.0-litre powerplant will be sourced from the Renault Kwid 1.0L, which is expected to be launched in the coming months.

Currently, the Datsun Go is powered by a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder engine that churns out 68 BHP and 104 Nm of torque. The Japanese automaker is now planning to replace this with a 1.0-litre, three-cylinder engine which will likely be rated at 65 BHP.

The major reason behind this decision to swap the Datsun Go's engine is the fact that the currently used 1.2-litre mill is an expensive unit, owing to the fact that it needs many imported components. On the other hand, the 1.0-litre engine made under the Renault-Nissan alliance boasts of high levels of localization, which will help Datsun to price the Go hatchback at a slightly more aggressive price tag.

But in order to plonk the new engine, Datsun will need to make some changes in the Go's engine bay, as the 1.0-litre engine was designed to be equipped with cars that are based on the CMF-A platform.

Go, RediGo, and Go+, now that's called as the exploitation of a concept to the fullest. If we put the sales number of these 3 cars along with Kwid about 6 months from now when the RediGo will stabilize its market share, put together these cars would be touching about 20K mark per month; which is a good news for the French-Japanese Duo while an alarm for MSIL to ensure even more VFM proposition for their first time customers through Alto.

What Renault-Datsun offer through these cars is good amount of real estate and a more powerful engine for the same kind of investment as Alto.

Also, both RediGo and Kwid are better designed in terms of road presence compared to the bland Alto.

If these companies are able to ensure after sale service closer to MSIL; even championing 1 product can bring in success and keep the cash register ringing.

Good strategy !

They could have put in a 2.0 ltr engine as well. Doesnt matter, nobody cares.

IMO the very concept of Datsun is flawed in India. This car would have sold a few if it was a Nissan.

Smile Review of TAXI cars from the BACKSEAT!!!

Hello Dear BHPians,

Now as a 19YR old I don't get the Opportunity or the time to test drive new cars and hence on my trip to Delhi this week and on the occasion of a couple of trips in Ola cabs I sought to write small reviews on the Cars that served as our cabs. ( This is not a review of Ola cab service but only of the cars )

The first car was a Datsun Go

As you sit into the car the first thing you notice is that the doors close with a hollow bang.

The seats are thin and lack support

Then what impresses you is the fact that the quality of the materials used in the things you see and touch like the door cards and the dashboard are more than acceptable.

Many parts in the interior have been taken from the common Nissan parts bin. Also the front passenger lacked a roof handle.

While sitting in the back seat you notice that the integrated headrests in the front seats are really wide and constrict the view of the back passenger.

The B-Pillar was completely bare.

The cabin was very spacious and the width of the cabin would even put some of the cars from a class above to shame
I don't know about higher variants but this one had really poor sound Insulation.
Lot of sound seemed to seep in from the boot section.
Even this lower most model had a digital tacho.
Ride seemed to be fine. The engine did not sound strained despite 4 people sitting in the car with me and my father being on the heavier side.

PIC 1-
The Dash. The DATSUN logo on the steering looks fab

PIC 2- Great Amount of headroom. I am 184CM high.

PIC 3 The quality of door card plastic is above acceptable

PIC 4 Constricted view of the rear passengers

[Next review coming soon. BTW how can you add text between the pics??]
