The facelifted Datsun Go 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 new model. Inside, there's a new instrument panel borrowed from the Datsun Cross. The crossover's 6.75-inch touchscreen infotainment system has not made it to the hatchback, and the JVC-made single-din audio system continues serving.

The Datsun Go is expected to soldier on with the HR12DE 1.2L three-cylinder petrol engine that produces 68 PS and 104 Nm of torque post facelift. A 5-speed manual transmission is standard. Datsun will introduce a CVT option with the mid-cycle refresh. CVT models will carry a badge on the tailgate, as seen in one spy shot.
