Tested: Tata Bolt vs FAW V2 vs Datsun Go – 1

Thanks to a tanking rand and a grim economic outlook, South Africans are increasingly being forced to consider less car for more money. What then does a growing family choose if the criteria is that their car needs to be not only new (for security and warranty reasons), but also able to accommodate four or five in reasonable comfort? Here we shine the comparative test spotlight on three possible contenders for a small family car, Tata’s new Bolt, FAW’s V2 and South Africa’s cheapest car, the Datsun Go.


Welcome to my corner of the automotive world! I'm Mandy Lawson, better known as mandla85, and I'm absolutely obsessed with everything related to cars and motorsports. You bet I'm interested if it has four wheels (or sometimes two!) and an engine. For me, cars aren't just a means of transportation; they're a passion, a lifestyle, and an endless source of fascination. I love diving into the world of automotive engineering and design, exploring the latest trends, and uncovering the stories behind the machines. Email / Facebook
