The GO and the GO+ have the same cabin in terms of layout, elements and features but in the case of the latter, it is a dual-tone setup (beige over black) while the GO is a full black affair.
This cabin has been in force since Datsun updated the car in late 2018 and is a major step up from the pre-facelift model’s cabin which could best be described as a large grey slate. The highlight of the dashboard is, of course, the 7.0-inch touchscreen system which offers all the functionality expected of a car in this segment like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity and light and dark mode. However, it performs averagely when it comes to graphics and transitions.
The quality of plastics in both cars is quite impressive for this price bracket and is once again quite a step up from the previous car. On the practicality front, you get deep door pockets, covered glove box and for the first time, a rear parcel shelf.
The cars that we drove had been accessorised with some rather fancy looking seat covers bearing the GO/GO+ loGOs and trimmed out in body colour and silver respectively. With the 2018 update, Datsun ditched the extended passenger seats for regular bucket seats and these offer better comfort and support. Despite the driver’s seat and steering not having the height or reach adjustment, the ergonomics behind the wheel is acceptable and it is not very hard to find a GOod driving position.
While there is so much going on with the front seats, the rear is quite bare as there are no storage spaces or even an armrest. The support from seats is decent and with a bit of squeezing you would be able to fit three abreast.
The GO+’s USP, of course, is its third-row but you should consider this as an emergency seating option or slightly premium luggage storage space. In both cars, the second row folds while in the GO+, the third row folds down offering a massive 347-litres of storage space. All versions of the GO and GO+ now get dual front airbags, rear side crash protection, pedestrian protection regulation, central locking as well ABS with EBD as standard across the range.
