The Datsun Go facelift features a sharper design for its lower air intake, tweaked headlamps, new exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals, new five-twin-spoke alloy wheels and new bumpers. Datsun Indonesia will continue offering a sporty bodykit comprising underbody spoilers, side skirts and roof spoiler. The rear parking sensors sit a little higher in the facelift model.
Inside, there’s a new instrument panel borrowed from the Datsun Cross. However it doesn’t offer the Cross’s 6.75-inch touchscreen infotainment system.

The Datsun Go is expected to carry the same HR12DE 1.2L three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 68 PS and 104 Nm of torque. Transmission options will be either a 5-speed manual or a CVT. The Datsun Go facelift is expected to hit the Indonesian market on 7th May, while it will reach other Asian markets towards the end of this year.
Ghandhara Nissan is in process of launching the Datsun Go and Go+ in Pakistan, we will have to wait and see if they introduce the facelift models here or not.
