Under the curtain of the past year came the news of an impending closure of the brand Datsun. Allegedly, the expansion Datsun stalled, sales are stagnant, and therefore, why is it needed? Especially since Carlos Ghosn, the initiator of the revival of the brand, is arrested and is under house arrest awaiting sentencing (currently, he managed to escape to their historical homeland — in Lebanon).

The Japanese responded immediately: stated that Datsun will live and its future is not in danger. And in a sign of the seriousness of these intentions even rolled out the updated sedan on-DO. However, updates in the car low, they are more for show. And it is still popular in the market sedan, essentially a slightly refined clone of Frets Grants with an increased rear overhang.

Handling on-DO not a fountain, but the energy intensity of the suspension at the height of her uneasy even huge amishi.Handling on-DO not a fountain, but the energy intensity of the suspension at the height of her uneasy even huge amishi.

1. How to distinguish the updated on-DO?

If we talk about the on-DO sedan, then Yes, it is, of course, has changed. But the point is that Datsun its exterior is nothing new: the sedan received “face” from the hatchback mi-DO (don’t know why, but their “faces” until recently, differed). Now trehobemnyh there’s a new front bumper and mirrors with repeaters of indexes of turns. Bumpers themselves, by the way, now already in the basic version of Access are painted in body color.

There is another important, albeit subtle at a glance innovation — lyzovanie headlamps. Their appearance can be as happy, and upset. In the asset — more powerful light on the background of previous reflex optics. In the passive time-consuming process of replacement bulbs. We in edition even aces barely able to cope with this work.

Interior lever the Parking brake is now fully tightened and the plastic looks much tidier still. The paddle shifters are better recorded, and the control unit of the ventilation system — to require less effort when turning the handles. Finally, the driver’s seat has got height adjustment. But, in fairness, landing still remained high: I wanted to land another couple of inches.

Audio system taught to play with the ignition off, and on-Board computer — alert buzzer in the event of damage or other emergency situation. New salon mirror gives a great field of view, although I still had no complaints. But for the absence of illumination of glove compartment we are on-DO not just scolded. Now she appeared. The case for small — to move the USB connector from the glove compartment to a more convenient place.

Interior design is generally the same. The finish is rather poor, but tidy. Unlike Grants, on-DO offers multimedia with a touchscreen.Interior design is generally the same. The finish is rather poor, but tidy. Unlike Grants, on-DO offers multimedia with a touchscreen.

The front seats finally got the adjustment on the vertical. That’s just they move from a high position to a very high. Low planting can only dream about.The front seats finally got the adjustment on the vertical. That’s just they move from a high position to a very high. Low planting can only dream about.

The second row offers modest space — like related Grant. Want more room — view towards Vesta and Logan.The second row offers modest space — like related Grant. Want more room — view towards Vesta and Logan.

2. Ergonomics and roominess okay?

Overall, the salon Datsun design and ergonomics suits me. At least it is not worse than the interior of a more expensive Renault Logan. And the build quality is decent — the parts fit tightly, nothing anywhere bristling.

But the space is not all smooth. On the second row of the person is 180 cm tall, if he will sit “he himself” continues to be closely. And the width of the margin is small. So three of the head restraint here — deceit. If you want to get more space in this price range, try to “try on” Logan or Lada Vesta. Of these cars in the gallery much more “air”.

3. The trunk is a lot take?

And here on-DO not class spacious: according to official data, it can be downloaded compartment 530 liters of Luggage. The figure seemed exaggerated. Had to double-check. And you know, sarulesti measuring the amount of Luggage was not so far from the claimed figure — 506 liters. In this segment nobody stood. We add that separately folding the rear seat backs lean just rich versions of the Dream.

The trunk seems disproportionately long. On the other hand, it had a positive effect on its volume.The trunk seems disproportionately long. On the other hand, it had a positive effect on its volume.

Inside the on-DO is placed 530 liters of Luggage. And all is good, but to fasten the handle to close in Datsun did not bother.Inside the on-DO is placed 530 liters of Luggage. And all is good, but to fasten the handle to close in Datsun did not bother.

4. What motor is better?

With the restyling changes to the engine range has not happened. The base version comes with a 1.6-liter 87-horsepower VAZ 8 klapannym with the so-called lightweight connecting rod and piston group. The motor is commendably torquey “down” and hopeless in the area of medium speed, but “upstairs” — a sadness. Screeming, but not going. So if you prefer an active driving style, it is best to take modification with a 106-horsepower 16-klapannym the same volume of vitality it more.

The engine is offered exclusively with 5-speed manual transmission. But with basic unit extra charge, you can get the machine. Oddly enough, the antiquated 4-speed Jatco box is very good Datsun. Switch it is always on time and absolutely not bother with the jerks. In passport to disperse hundreds for 14.4 seconds not believe. Feel everything happens for a couple of seconds faster. But this is just feeling. Real acceleration measure were not slippery it was in the days of the test.

Machine with a gun is more expensive on 50 000. Don’t hesitate — it’s worth it.

5. How goes the Datsun on-DO?

Good handling was not a trump card Datsun and did not. Have on-DO uninformative the wheel turns, he comes unwillingly and strongly heels. Active drivers will not like. To Vesta — as the moon.

Very strange are set up brakes. Not to say that they are ineffective, but the drive works like this: you have put pressure on the pedal, meet resistance, and the deceleration still no. And somewhere at the end of the stroke of the pedal the car begins to slow down — this particular had a long time to adjust. But the problem is well known and visucam, engineers Datsun.

However, when evaluating vehicle handling in the first place put not all. For many of us, an equally important aspect is the smoothness. And she had Datsun wonderful! Tricks of our roads suspension carries stoically. Holes and road cracks echo in the cabin only minor wobbles. If your region of smooth asphalt is in short supply, the on-DO can be a lifesaver.

Lights on-DO now linkowanie. And in the manual the diagram shows the old reflex optics.Lights on-DO now linkowanie. And in the manual the diagram shows the old reflex optics.

Interior light interior lighting in the book is also still the old model — the interior is equipped with a modern “chandelier”.Interior light interior lighting in the book is also still the old model — the interior is equipped with a modern “chandelier”.

6. What about insulation — passengers at least heard?

When on-DO made its debut, the Japanese company emphasized that the insulation of their sedan better than the classmates. At idle the sound level meter showed 52 dB. The result is nice but not outstanding — Logan on our recent test was 53 dB. At the speed of 50 km/h advantage over Logan increases: respectively 66 and 68 dB. But at 100 km/h in Renault already quieter: 71 dB against 73 Datsun. But there will remark: reference Logan was with the CVT, which for hundreds of the crankshaft is spinning at low speed, while with a gun at Datsun the tachometer needle is at around 2500 rpm.

7. And paint learned?

The thickness of the paintwork measure at four points the body: in the region of the front edge of the hood, on the fender (near the wheel arches), on the threshold (in case of impossibility of calculation in the lower part of the door), and near the lower edge of the trunk lid.The thickness of the paintwork measure at four points the body: in the region of the front edge of the hood, on the fender (near the wheel arches), on the threshold (in case of impossibility of calculation in the lower part of the door), and near the lower edge of the trunk lid.

  1. Hood and 87 µm
  2. Wing — 98 µm
  3. The threshold/door — 88 µm
  4. Trunk lid — 94 microns

As you can see, in all test points the thickness of the paintwork modest. In the same places at Logan’s layer was not less than 117 microns. So the owner Datsun is necessary to protect the coating of the body: to scratch it to the metal easily.

8. Suitable for family with kids?

For large families on-DO not do. So, in his back row can only be a few infant seats with Isofix anchorage. The third will not enter at all desire is not enough space in width. And adult between two child seats will be cramped. On the right front seat, too, ordered way, since the front airbag is not disconnected here. So if you have three children, then on-DO you are unlikely to suit you — looking for a bigger car.

9. What’s with the prices?

In the Russian market on-DO is one of the most affordable cars (from 506 000). Cheaper only Lada Granta (from 455 900 rubles). But to compare them is not quite correct, because in contrast to the Frets in Datsun initially has front electric Windows, serverappliance and heated side mirrors, heated front seats, power steering. If you add all this in Harmony, the prices are almost equal.

In General, because the options on the Datsun are inexpensive, it is advantageous to take the top version. Modification with automatic, touchscreen, navigation, climate control and heated windscreen will cost 686 000. Similarly packaged car will cost about a million.
