Kyalami - Datsun is entering the seven-seat miniature-MPV market with its new Go+, and it comes at a price that's going to be irresistible to those seeking a practical people mover on a tight budget.
As the name implies, the newcomer is essentially a stretched version of the existing Go hatchback. It has the same 2450mm wheelbase but the rear section has been lengthened by 210mm to accommodate the two extra seats. There's practically no boot when they're in place, but the rear bench does at least fold to create a 347-litre loading space, which is 82 litres more than you get in the regular hatch.
The Go+ is priced at R134 900, significantly undercutting other seven-seat favourites such as the Honda Mobilio (from R207 000), Suzuki Ertiga (R189 900) and Toyota Avanza (R214 700).
