The Datsun GO live, an exciting new concept, debuts at the GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show today. As the name suggests, the Datsun GO live is based on the popular Datsun GO. However, it's obvious at first sight that this compact hatchback is something altogether different – created specifically for young Indonesians who see customizing vehicles as a way of life. It's obvious at first glance that the GO live's exterior has been created to reflect the fashion mindset and culture among today's young Indonesians. For example, the camouflage-style paint scheme is based on colors and patterns found on many of today's trendy clothes, shoes and accessories. The bright yellow accents throughout the body make the concept car stand out in any crowd.
The GO live's dramatic body style exudes a totally different personality from the Datsun GO, turning the compact 5-door hatchback into a confidence-inspiring and vigorous road machine. The front fascia is now characterized by a large, bold hexagonal grille and slim, canted headlights. Bulging fender flares, inspired by Datsun's design heritage, give the car a wide, muscular stance. The GO live's unconventional silhouette is tall and sleek. Its main intention is to provide a fun, personalized mode of transportation. Stepping into and out of the vehicle is a breeze thanks to its high roofline and floor – not to mention large front and rear doors. To complement its elevated stance, the GO live comes with 17-inch alloy wheels, featuring yellow spokes to match the body accents. Kyu said he chose the wheels and tires with large profiles to showcase the diverse nature of the GO live – giving the vehicle a "big boots" image rather than a "racing" image.
The sporty side skirts provide plenty of flair when seen in profile. The rear sits high, giving the impression that the GO live is constantly moving forward. It's highlighted by large, square tail lights, a thick rear bumper and a flamboyant, roof-mounted rear wing. Although the GO live was designed with Indonesian customers in mind, Kyu said the car is for anyone in the world who loves to spend weekends actively – whether that consists of going on a long leisurely drive or spending the day at the mall.
