    Is it worth buying?

    Compared to the manual transmission variants of the Datsun Go and Go Plus, the automatic variants are anywhere between Rs. 86,000 to Rs. 1.26 lakh more expensive. The Go T variant adds the most to the price tag. Rs. 1.26 lakh is a big increase for the Datsun Go T variant, especially considering that it’s a low volume car. Cars like the Datsun Go and Go Plus, which sell in low numbers also depreciate faster than their competitors. If they were a little cheaper, then it'd have been easier for us to recommend these cars.

    The other reason why this car makes less sense for you is because there are cheaper AMT automatics in the market. When you begin to use an automatic car, the kind of technology matters less for an everyday use. If you want to save money and don't mind the slightly slower shifts, then the AMT automatic will give you:

    • 2-pedal driving (the convenience of an automatic)
    • Low cost of acquisition
    • Low cost of maintenance

    So, even though, the CVT automatic of the Go twins come is objectively superior technology, buyers you should still be open to considering an AMT automatic. Just know that the CVT will be far smoother but the AMT can do the job just fine.

    However, the 1.2-litre petrol engine has been the Datsun Go and Go Plus’s strength right from the beginning. For the price of a 1.0-litre car, you’re getting a 1.2-litre engine that’s

    • pretty reliable
    • extremely refined and
    • very frugal

    Not to mention, space and equipment the Go twins offer, blow the competition out of the water.

    The Datsun Go and Go Plus had three major turn-offs:

    • Poor safety record
    • Messed up ergonomics and cabin design
    • Notchy 5-speed manual transmission

    With the facelift, Nissan Datsun fixed the ergos and cabin design, strengthened the chassis and added ABS and airbags. The addition of CVT automatic takes care of the poor manual gearbox. So, the car is definitely worth serious consideration with no rough edges around the corners anymore. But whether it’s worth buying or not depends on what you compare it with.
