    Hello,

    Datsun Go has descent body specs, like if to compare Datsun Go T with Ford Figo Zxi

    - Engine Specs - 1.2 Lit, 71 BHP, 102 NM Torque in Figo / 1.2 Lit 67 BHP 104 NM Torque in Datsun Go. Also Datsun Go weighs much lighter in weight over Figo - it gives good Power to Body Weight output in adding quicker pickup in Go
    - Length & width - almost similar (3.79 M Length, in Shoulder room - Datsun go even has slight more space with 1/2 inch more shoulder room)
    - Height - Datsun Go is taller by 5cm and offers good headroom with better view
    - Boot - Both cars have good boot space almost the best in segment, but Figo exceeds slight with 19 Lit, a small laptop bag additionally can be put in.
    - Ground Clearance - not much of difference, both cars have more than 165mm - which is good for Indian roads. Figo @ 168mm & Go @ 170mm
    - In terms of Features - both have Power Steering, AC with Heater, Front Power Window, Central Lock,

    But bigger difference is

    Datsun Go Pros
    - Mileage - Almost 1/3rd more fuel efficient - if compared mileage on ARAI Terms. Figo ARAI is 15.63 Kmpl, Datsun Go @ 20.63 Kmpl. Also has Average Fuel Economy displayed in Speed o meter - to check on regular on drive mileage
    - Has Additional Features - Follow me Headlights, Speed Sensitive Wipers, Mobile Docking Station so that you can connect smart phone to listed to music - no need of separate head unit for music system
    - Has Body Colored Door Handles against Figo Exi which has Black Colored Door Handles (you can also get Body Colored by paying additional sum of Rs. 5000 for Paint charges)

    Ford Figo
    - Interiors - Looks much premium with better color theme, fit, finish over Datsun Go - gives a premium feel
    - Exterior Body Looks, Rear view in Ford Figo appeals us a slight more over Datsun Go
    - Has Additional Features like - Remote Central Lock, CD Player Music System (however - same can also be installed by choosing accessory package from Datsun dealer by paying additional sum of Rs. 12,000)
    - Has established bigger sales and service network, brand value over new Datsun brand
    - Relatively much lower Noise and Vibration levels, almost a silent engine as against Datsun go

    If you considering Value - Datsun Go T looks value - its 50,000 cheaper - has good mileage, good space, almost similar power & engine performance. Ford Figo looks a bit premium - has better interiors, looks, much lower NVH (Noise & Vibration levels) and key point is established brand with proven after sales & service network - over Datsun brand - which will be catered by Nissan.
