Datsun has been one of the few companies this year to have launched limited-edition models of Datsun Go. The models are named as Remix Edition Go hatchback and Go+ MPV, which will be priced at Rs 4.21 Lakh and Rs 4.99 Lakh, respectively. Bookings for the special edition vehicles have begun at booking amount of Rs 9,000 and Rs 6,000 more than their respective variants.
Both the models have received exterior and the interior cosmetic changes with a motive of pushing sales of the rather slow-selling cars. For instance, the Remix Edition models will get a new finish: a black and orange dual-tone exterior; Storm White shade for the hatchback; white, black and orange for the MPV. Besides the colour change, the special-edition models will also get a new rear spoiler, a black grill, black wheel covers, chrome bezels on the bumper and chrome-finished exhaust tips.
On the interior side, the cabin shall be in piano black, along with new seat covers. The level of equipment is quite similar to the T variant, such as the remote keyless entry and Bluetooth compatibility for the audio system. Other features include follow-me-home headlamps, front power windows, an electric power steering, auxiliary-in and USB ports and central.
Mechanically, both models will be having the same 68hp, 1.2-litre petrol engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.Also read: You can now get a fancy number for your vehicle
The rivals of the all-new special edition Go models include Maruti Alto K10 and Hyundai Eon, and higher-spec versions of the Renault Kwid and its sibling, the Datsun Redigo. The Japanese carmaker is also looking to bring a crossover based on the Go+ MPV, which was launched in Indonesia at the beginning of 2018.
It would be interesting to see how the new models are on the market and whether or not their target audience, i.e the young generation accepts their concept vehicles.
