The Datsun Go+ is an extended Datsun Go with a third row of seats

The Go+ is basically a Go with an additional row of seats. The car also derives its 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine from its hatchback sibling. The motor is capable of 68 PS (67 bhp) at 5,000 rpm and 104 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. The transmission is a 5-speed manual unit. The MPV delivers an impressive ARAI mileage of 20.62 km/l.

The Go+ measures 3,995 mm in length, 1,635 mm in width, 1,490 mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,450 mm. The ground clearance and boot capacity stand at 170 mm and 48 litres respectively. With the third row down, the boot space extends to 347 litres.

The interior is carried forward from the Go.

The suspension layout is typical of a regular FWD vehicle with McPherson Struts (front) and torsion beam (rear). The front wheels are retarded by ventilated discs while the rear wheels make do with drum brakes. The 13-inch wheels come shod with 155/70R13 tyres.

The Go+ is available D, D1, A and T variants and like its hatchback sibling, only the top-end T trim offers power steering. The fully loaded variant offers central locking, full wheel covers, body colored bumpers, front power windows and HVAC system.

Competitors: Base gasoline variants of the Maruti Ertiga, Chevrolet Enjoy and Honda Mobilio

Expected Price: Rs 4.5-5.75 lakh, ex-showroom

Launch date: Early 2015
