The car brand Datsun was revived after a span of 30 years and will be projected to sell budget vehicles with the aim of developing the different upcoming car markets. Each of these car markets will get a car model suited to their specific requirements and for the hatchback crazy Indian market Datsun has launched GO along with the GO Plus MPV model.
The Datsun GO hatchback comes with a hexagonal radiator grille with chrome accented inserts along with head lights that start from the front of the hood to the middle of the front face of the car.
