Nissan is reviving the Datsun brand and has already unveiled its budget hatch; now it’s lifted the lid on another model. The second Datsun to make its appearance is the five-plus-two seater Go+ MPV.

It's based on the same platform as the more conventional five-seater Go hatchback, which will come to South Africa in the second half of next year at a target price of less than R100 000.

This means the GO+ should have competitive pricing too.

The lightweight Go+ is quite small for a seven-seater, at 3 995 mm long overall on a 2 450 mm wheelbase, 1 635 mm wide and 1 485 mm high, but big on versatility as its third row of seats can fold to create a family five-seater with a spacious cargo bay.

It's also surprisingly well-equipped; Nissan makes the point that it’s the only vehicle in its price bracket with a built-in docking station for a smartphone. It has a 1,2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine driving the front wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox that's tuned for fuel efficiency and good acceleration while delivering agility on congested roads.
