The Datsun GO Plus MPV will receive its first update since its launch thus expect some major changes made to both the exterior as well as to interior
We have recently informed you that Datsun is all set to launch the facelift Go hatchback and Go+ MPV on 9th of October 2018 just before the festive season. Datsun dropped their first teaser of the Go+ MPV today which confirms the fact that they will indeed be taking the covers off the facelift car next month.
Datsun is expected to add some serious updates to the hatchback as well the 7 seater MPV because this will be the first major update since their launch in India. Datsun Go+ MPV will receive an updated front profile which is expected to get a redesigned grille and headlamps which will most probably also be integrated with a daytime running lamps to add a premium feel.
We also expect the MPV to also feature a redesigned front bumper as well. The side profile will most probably receive a new set of 14-inch alloy wheels which will be available with only the higher spec trims currently, both the hatchback and the MPV gets steels wheels with plastic covers. Just like the front and side profile the rear profile too will receive a redesigned taillamps and bumper.
Just like the outside, the facelift Go+ MPV cabin will be equipped with a new 6.75 touchscreen infotainment system which will replace the existing unit. However, we also do believe that the new infotainment system will be limited to some high spec trims only. Besides that Datsun will perhaps also replace the current cars bland looking dashboard with a new and updated one.
The instrument cluster too will also be revised and will feature a new tachometer which was missing earlier. The rest of the expected features inside the MPV will include a proper lockable lid for the storage container and repositioned air-con vents for better airflow. Both the updated hatchback and the MPV will continue to be powered by the same 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol engine mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The engine produces about 67 Bhp of peak power and 104 Nm of torque and promises to return impressive overall fuel efficiency figures around 19 km to a litre. There is a fair chance that Datsun might introduce an AMT transmission soon with the Go+ MPV which will be the same unit which offered in the markets of Indonesia. As far as the pricing of the updated Go+ MPV is concerned to expect the facelift variant to be priced at least 25-30 thousand above their existing models.
