Datsun South Africa has quietly added a new limited-edition model to its local Go range, dubbing the newcomer the "Go Flash".

The Go Flash, which is offered in white or grey, is based on the standard Go hatchback, but at R135 900 costs some R3 000 more.

So, what do you get for the extra cash? Well, Datsun has applied graphics to the body, bonnet and roof, while also adding a silver exhaust finisher and mud-flaps to the mix.

Inside, the Go Flash gains a radio system complete with Bluetooth and USB (the standard model features a mobile docking station instead) as well as a splash of silver trim.

As with the standard hatch, the Go Flash is powered by a naturally aspirated 1,2-litre three-cylinder petrol engine, sending 50 kW and 104 N.m to the front axle via a five-speed manual gearbox. It likewise features a single airbag and does without ABS.

At the start of 2018, Datsun SA quietly removed the entry-level, airbag-less model from its Go range.
