In both cars, the CVT option will only be available with the top-end T and T(O) variants of the GO and GO+, and we expect them to come with a premium of about ₹ 50,000 over the asking price of their respective manual models. The features remain identical to the manual variants. Both the Datsun GO and GO+ CVT also get enhanced crash performance with front and side crash performance, roof and pedestrian protection reinforcement. They also get the recently introduced first-in-segment Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), along with dual airbags, ABS with EBD and Brake Assist, engine immobilizer, reverse parking sensors and follow-me-home headlamps, and speed sensing auto door locks.
Both cars continue to be powered by the same 1.2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine that is capable of churning out 67 bhp and develop 104 Nm of peak torque. As of now, the motor only comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.
