Cape Town - Datsun has launched a limited edition, high-spec version of its Datsun Go Lux.
The new Go Remix sports additional accessories including new bodykit, 15" alloys and new interior trim.
The limited edition Go hatchback is priced at R159 000.
Targeting 'risers' in SA
Des Fenner, general manager of Datsun South Africa, said: "The major appeal of the Datsun Go Remix lies in the fact that there will be only 200 units sold in South Africa. For Datsun enthusiasts, this means the opportunity to own a rare vehicle specifically crafted for ‘Risers’, young trend-setters in the 18 to 30 age group, looking for ways to stand out from the crowd. Making the car more desirable is its price, making it possible for this category of motorists to buy a stylish brand new car.
DRIVEN: Datsun's back! We drive the new Go hatch
"The Remix forms part of an exciting line-up of three new cars launched by Datsun in South Africa since October 2014, and will add further youthful appeal and distinctive looks to our success story. Attractive pricing and value have always been major factors in the Go’s success. We are proud that the Datsun tradition will be continued in this regard."

• An aero kit for the front, sides and rear of the vehicle
