Datsun Go has just been launched in India and the car comes at a pricing which is almost bang on to say the least. During the launch, officials from the company stated that they do not believe there should be a hierarchy to the variants of the car and customers should be able to choose the way they want to configure their cars. Thus the Datsun Go accessories packages have been launched, each with a bundle of accessories suited for different needs. This move is pretty unique in the segment, and Nissan/Datsun hopes that this will improve the ratings of the car among the customers.
The Datsun Go accessory packages include the Women Edition, Sport Package, Trendy Package, Family Package 1 & 2 and Essential Package 1 & 2. Let us take a look at what all is on offer in each of the packages:
