The Datsun GO makes the car of your dreams a reality. With impressive acceleration and fuel efficiency, a spacious interior for family and friends, and plenty of room in the boot, it’s designed for the way you really live. You can stop wishing and start driving today.
When it comes to stature and presence, the Datsun GO feels like a class above. A low, roofline and wide stance give it a sporty attitude and road-hugging handling. And even with its long wheelbase and high ground clearance for a smooth ride, Datsun GO is still compact enough to slip right into tight parking spaces.
Everyone gets to stretch out in the Datsun GO, thanks to best-in-class cabin length. Your rear passengers will feel like they’re in a cosy sedan, with best-in-class knee room and a well-cushioned seat. Up front, you’ll find best-in-class shoulder room, and more head room than many competitors. Personal items have their own place too, in the under-dash storage, the deep bin on top, and in the door pockets with bottle holders big enough to keep your thirst quenched.
There’s a little bit of race car in every Datsun GO. Its 1.2-L engine is one of the largest in its class, borrowing “perfect circle bore machining” from race car technology to deliver class-leading power and torque. You’ll love the get-up-and-go, while a counterbalance system minimizes noise and vibration to give you a quiet, smooth ride.
Frugal Fuel Efficiency
Datsun GO gets an impressive 5.2l/100km – competitive in its segment, even though the Datsun GO is bigger inside and out. That’s a smart package.
Small Turning Radius
Even with a longer wheelbase than most cars in its class, the Datsun GO still has a very small turning radius – handy when you need to make a 3-point turn on a narrow street.
Enjoy the conversation and your music. Because the Datsun GO is solidly built with strategically placed insulation which absorbs driving and wind noise, making your time behind the wheel quality time.
Generous Boot space
Weekend getaway?Friends flying in? Not to worry. With best-in-class boot space of 265 L, the luggage will fit.

It’s time to drive a car that truly reflects you. A car as fresh as a new day and as bold as your outlook. This is the Datsun GO. From its distinctive front grille to its athletic rear shoulders, Datsun GO looks modern and robust at the same time. Get ready to stand out, for all the right reasons.
Bold Character Grille
It’s a face you can love. The lines of the car draw your attention to the striking honeycomb style grille, featuring a chrome surround that frames the DATSUN® logo for an even more striking impression.
This is where the Datsun GO really outclasses some of its narrow, flat-sided competitors. The wide, deeply curving shoulders on the Datsun GO suggest substance and strength. And they make a nice impression on the driver behind you.
Flowing smoothly into the front end, these bold, curvy fenders make a statement. It's the kind of daring design you usually see in more expensive luxury cars.
Sleek Interior Design
Clean, simple and modern is the key, with an emphasis on thoughtful details that reflect quality. Consider the elegant, dipping line of the dash inspired by a bird’s wing, just the right touch of silver accents, the gear-lever placed on the instrument panel in easy reach of the steering wheel, and even the clever shape of the door handles.
Just like eyes, headlights can say so much. The elongated 3-D shaped headlights have a multi-faceted design framed by a metallic accent and add just the right amount of drama to the car's surface.

The Datsun GO doesn’t just look modern, it’s modern to the core – filled with innovative thinking for a vehicle in its segment. It might be a detail, like the texture of the cabin materials. Or it might be as fundamental as large, ventilated front disc brakes to improve stopping power. Welcome to a brand-new way to move through the world.
Airbags together with seatbelts have saved lives. If the unexpected happens, drivers can feel more secure with the advanced airbag safety technology employed in the Datsun GO.
The Datsun GO is engineered to respond quickly to driver input and to take the bumps in stride. The class-above front suspension uses a double-pivot front arm for greater agility, while a high response damper, inspired by luxury sedans, quickly absorbs irregularities in the road. Imagine, a car that makes the road feel smoother than it is.
Speed-sensitive Electric Power Steering
Sometimes you want more steering assist, other times less. The system in the Datsun GO has it all figured out by adjusting the level of power assist according to how fast you’re going. At lower speeds, it gives you more assist, so it’s easier to park and manoeuvre. At higher speeds, steering is tighter, for more control.
Ventilated Disc Brakes
Eventually, your Datsun GO has to stop, and to make sure you can do that safely, we use 22 mm ventilated disc brakes in the front. The brake system helps reduce brake “fade” from overheating, which means more secure, consistent stopping and a longer life for your brakes.
Low-Fatigue Seat Design
The front seats in the Datsun GO are specially designed to keep you relaxed and alert, even during long hours behind the wheel. By adapting to the natural curve of the spine when sitting, they individually support the pelvis and chest and relieve pressure on your back. You’ll arrive at your destination feeling refreshed, ready for whatever you have to take on next.
Intelligent Wiper System
Bad weather needs good wipers. The wipers change frequency automatically as your car’s speed increases, so you don’t have to worry about adjusting them. You can stay focused on driving safely, with better visibility. And when you use the windshield washer function, the wipers have a special mode that waits a few seconds, then comes back on to wipe away the last few drops.
Leather-feel Grain Pattern
This is the kind of detail that makes the Datsun GO feel like a class above – a dashboard and interior trim with a leather-feel grain pattern that’s soft to the touch. We put a lot of care into choosing material that would elevate the experience by giving the dash an upmarket feel.
Electronic Accelerator Pedal
Step on the accelerator and notice how smoothly it responds. That’s because it’s controlled electronically – not by a cable – which also means less maintenance and lower emissions.
When does your car become your home away from home? When it’s a Datsun GO, with every detail feeling like it was designed for you personally. From music at your fingertips to extra lighting that guides you safely, the Datsun GO puts you at the happy centre of a unique driving experience.
In the event of a front-end crash, the driver-side airbag, in conjunction with the seatbelt, helps minimise the impact on the driver from the collision. When the airbag automatically deploys and inflates in a front-end crash, it mitigates against serious head injuries.
Mobile Docking Station
Music makes everything better, especially when it’s your own playlists. With this Mobile Docking Station, you can bring all your music along for the ride. Your smartphone mounts right on the dashboard (in portrait or landscape) and plugs into two door speakers. Instant soundtrack, plus, now you have access to the navigation apps on your phone. An auxiliary connects your smartphone to the MDS and use the USB port as a handy source of power.
Even the air conditioning vents are special. Unlike traditional rectangular vents, their circular design lets you pinpoint exactly where you want the air to blow. You can also close them to force more air out of other vents – if it’s just you on board, you can enjoy all the air. And the upper dash vents are perfectly placed to cool off your rear passengers.
Front Connected Seats
The connected design of the extended front seats is unique in the segment and makes it easy to slide across and out the other side in tight parking situations.
Not just a Smart Meter, but the smartest meter in the class. It includes a digital tachometer, plus a gear shift guide on the speedometer that shows the ideal time to shift for maximum efficiency and performance. The Drive Computer displays fuel consumption, average fuel consumption and, really helpful, distance to empty.
Long Range Headlights
More than stylish, these headlights with large, hexagonal reflectors provide wider and longer visibility than the competition for best-in-class lighting performance.
Follow Me Home System
These auto-off headlights will help guide you safely to the front door of your destination. Just click the passing switch once for 30 seconds of light, up to four times for 120 seconds. Because Datsun GO looks out for you, right up to the very end of your journey.
