I am interested in spacious car in 1.2 Litre Engine and shortlisted Datsun Go. What are Positives, Negatives along with future Service Maintenance Costs of the car
Admin Accepted Answer

Below is review of Positives & Negatives as observed in Datsun Go Hatchback

» 1.2 Litre Powerful Engine - much better in Power, Pep, Acceleration - against Alto & Eon 800cc & Spark 1 Litre Engine. Even in respect to bidy weight - Power output is still one among the best in the segment

» Space - you will love it - Legroom (thanks to much longer wheelbase), Shoulder rooom, Spacious Boot Space - it's no compromise and offers much more breathing space as a 5 passenger car

» Low Service Cost - Datsun Go is a pocket friendly car. Read the Go Service Review, can expect Service costs of just 30p per Km (on 50,000 Kms in 5 yrs)

» Engine Noise & Vibration: The Noise & Vibration levels are slight higher when you initially move the car. However - it seems to subsides as soon as you are on speed. Still - initial NVH Levels seems a bit on higher side

» Very Average Interiors: Feels very average in Interior Aesthetics. Infact - its Sibling Renault kwid and Datsun Redi Go with all black interiors looks more premium. Even - Alto K10, Hyundai Eon feels more upmarket than Datsun Go in Interiors

» Basic Features: The Features List feels basic even when compared to Kwid, Redi Go or Eon.

» Safety Concern: In NCAP Crash test - even the structure was marked unstable in crash. Very high safety concerns for the car in crash test rating.
