Rumour: Datsun GO, GO+ facelift launch in September 2018


Datsun is reportedly planning to launch the GO and GO+ facelift in India around September 2018.

The updated GO hatchback and GO+ MPV are already on sale in Indonesia. The cars get redesigned front bumpers with black inserts and chrome highlights as well as vertical LED DRLs. The front grille has a chrome frame and comes with a new mesh design. The car gets redesigned headlights and higher variants ride on 14-inch alloy wheels. 

The interiors have also been updated with a new dual-tone dashboard and a redesigned centre console with new air-conditioning vents. The new cars get a touchscreen infotainment screen and a covered glove box. The 3-spoke steering wheel gets silver trim and the instrument cluster comes with a new tachometer. The front bench seat has been replaced with two separate seats. The two seats are now separated by the handbrake lever, which was earlier placed on the centre console.

Details about the India-spec Datsun GO and GO+ facelift are scarce. However, media reports suggest that the Indian version might get features like electric mirror adjust, power windows, rear washer and wiper, rear parking sensors, driver and passenger airbags and ABS. Both models are likely to use the same 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder petrol engine which makes 67 BHP @ 5,000 rpm and 104 Nm of torque @ 4,000 rpm which is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
