Datsun is gearing up to launch the Go and Go+ CVT variants in October. Both models received a facelift late last year, which added additional safety features, restyled interiors and an updated exterior design.

With this new update, the Go and Go+ will become the first cars in their respective segments to feature a CVT-automatic gearbox, as all their competitors get the more cost-effective Automated Manual Transmissions (AMTs). Datsun offers both cars with a single engine option – a 1.2-litre, three-cylinder petrol unit, which is rated at 68hp when mated to the 5-speed manual and 77hp when mated to the new CVT automatic; the torque is rated at 104Nm for both engine-gearbox combinations.

We can also confirm that Datsun will offer a CVT gearbox option only on the top two trim levels – T and T (O). All variants come equipped with two airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, a driver and front-passenger seat-belt reminder and rear parking sensors as standard. We have also compiled a list of all the features that will be available on the aforementioned CVT variants, below.
