Both the Datsun GO and Tata Tiago have bigger 1.2-litre engines. Besides being the most powerful car in this comparison, the Tiago is also the most efficient as per the claimed figures. The GO is actually the least fuel efficient car in this list and the only one that doesn’t offer an automatic option.  The Santro, WagonR and Celerio also come factory-fitted with CNG fuel kits, trading in boot space for increased fuel efficiency. On the other hand, the Tiago is the only car here with a diesel engine option.

The updated Datsun GO gets a modern infotainment system and more safety features as standard than its rivals but misses out on steering-mounted controls. The Maruti cars get the least safety equipment as standard, and the infotainment definitely needs an update. Tata Tiago only recently introduced a touchscreen infotainment system on the new XZ+ top-spec variant. The Hyundai Santro is also well equipped compared to the competition but only in the higher variants. Front passenger airbag and rear parking sensors are reserved for the top variant only.

Rs 4.14 lakh - Rs 5.39 lakh

Rs 3.9 lakh - Rs 5.65 lakh

Datsun has undercut all its rivals with the pricing of the updated GO. The fact that it gets all the basics right makes it a package worth considering now. The new Hyundai Santro disappoints with its high prices for equivalent safety features despite offering a more premium feel to the car. But competition in this segment will be more fierce than ever once Maruti Suzuki launches the new WagonR in January 2019.
