Get Up, and Datsun GO!

Thirty years after Datsun said goodbye to South Africa, the brand returned with a bang, and a new concept in funky, affordable mobility. Say hello to the compact Datsun GO Lux…

So, you’re thinking of buying a new car. Considering that it is one of the biggest financial investments you will make in your life, getting it right without breaking the bank is crucial. Plus, you want style, affordability, and personality thrown in as part of the deal.

Enter the Datsun GO Lux, South Africa’s most affordable deluxe compact car, and a favourite new car for first-time buyers.

A success story from day one, the GO has made headlines for Datsun since the brand returned to South Africa in 2014, by outselling most of its rivals and providing many hours of happy motoring to thousands of GO customers.

Powered by a 3-cylinder 1.2-litre engine that develops 50 kW and 104 Nm of torque, the GO Lux has enough get-up-and-go to satisfy even the toughest critics. Best of all, it not only gets you going quickly with the 0-100km/h sprint done in 13.3 seconds, but it will also keep you going for longer as it sips on a mere 5.2-litres of petrol per 100 kilometres.

While being a nippy little performer, the GO also takes the business of transporting its precious cargo in comfort, very seriously. There is loads of room for up to four adults, and with 265 litres of available boot space, no one will be leaving any of their luggage behind either.

However, best-in-class cabin and luggage space is not the GO’s only accolade; it also leads the pack in terms of its tight turning circle. At a mere 4.6 metres, getting the GO in and out of any parking spot is a breeze, while the clever connected seat layout up front, means that you can hop out the passenger side door should you get yourself in a bit of a tight spot.

The GO Lux features a couple of must-have extras including air conditioning, a multi-information display and electric windows. You also get a unique Mobile Docking Station (MDS) to sync your smartphone directly with the car, giving you hassle-free access to satellite navigation, hands-free telephony, a USB charger, music player and radio all via your smart device. And to make driving the GO Lux even more enjoyable, power steering and a multi-function on-board computer are also included.

The Datsun GO may be officially positioned as a low-cost urban run-about, but in reality, it is the answer to thousands of South African’s car ownership dreams.

You too can make your dream of owning a new car come true today. From R125,900 you can get a GO in any one of five gorgeous colours – Sky Blue, White, Gray, Silver or Ruby – and while you’re at it, get peace of mind with Datsun’s 3-year 100,000km warranty, and roadside assistance service included as standard.
