Spec Comparison: Datsun Go T vs Tata Tiago XZ Petrol

Spec Comparison: Datsun Go T vs Tata Tiago XZ Petrol

Datsun has revised their budget hatchback, the Datsun Go, with a few tweaks to the exterior and a reworked interior layout four years after Datsun introduced the Go badge in India. With renewed vigour, the Datsun Go will take on the compact budget hatchback segment and its newest rising star, the Tata Tiago. The Tiago is also an all-new product, a result of Tata 2.0, and it offers much better quality and build as compared to the previous generation Tata cars.


When you look at both the cars, the Datsun Go looks larger because of its design which consists mostly of straight lines and angular cuts. While it is longer than the Tiago, the curvy Tata is wider and taller than the Datsun. While both cars get reflector headlamps, the Datsun now gets LED DRLs added to its kitty along with the optional diamond cut alloy wheels. The Tiago, however, still takes the cake by a whisker when it comes to premium looks especially with the blacked-out headlamps and the overall design.

Interior and Safety

It is being said that Datsun has addressed the safety concerns that marred the Go regarding the build quality. The new Go is heavier and is said to feel sturdier as well which should mean better structural rigidity. Also, with the driver airbag being offered as an option on all variants, safety is taken care of.

Also, the New Go gets a new interior layout which has improved the look and feel of the cabin by a country mile. The new touchscreen infotainment system now takes centre stage in the Datsun Go and the fabric interior has also been tweaked for a fresh look. The Tiago’s layout has always been good with the Harman touchscreen unit. The top-spec Tiago gets all-four power windows, electrically adjustable wing mirrors along with central locking.

Engine and Gearbox

Since the Datsun Go is available only with the 1.2-litre petrol, we will keep the diesel Tiago out of the equation. The Tiago is also powered by a 1.2-litre petrol that develops 84 bhp as against the 67bhp of the Datsun. Surprisingly, it also offers better fuel economy, rated by the ARAI at 23.84 kmpl when compared to the 20.1kmpl of the Datsun Go. Both the cars get five-speed manual gearboxes but Tata also offers the Tiago with an AMT.


While the renewed and refreshed Datsun Go has brought a much better deal to the table as compared to its previous bare-bones self, the Tata Tiago still offers more car even though it costs more than the Datsun Go across all trims. But with the buying choices changing drastically over the past five years, buyers now are ready to spend more for a car that offers more features rather than going for a bare-bones car just to be able to buy one.
