Busy roads, less space, and ever-rising fuel prices are enough for the auto majors of the world to think ‘small’ as far as India is concerned.

As the market-share of small cars keep growing, beside Maruti and Tata, automakers like Hyundai, Chevrolet and Honda have also jumped into the fray.

Not to be left behind, Nissan, the Japanese auto company which had earlier shunned its Datsun brand saw the opportunity to bring the old warhorse back.

The brand which went dead in the early eighties has come back in a new avatar as Datsun GO.

The car, which is likely to be available by early 2014, will certainly rave up competition on Indian roads.
