YOUNG South Africans – and indeed older, perhaps retired, people – struggle every day due to lack of mobility. The causes: the cost and unreliability of public transport and the prices of personal vehicles.

But perhaps the main one is home-to-work-to recreation…

The new Datsun GO!, the automaker says, allows aspirational youth (and the older folk) to be mobile, to move at their own speed.

SO, WHICH CHOICE…?

So, meet Mpumi… she’s 26 years old, lives in Soweto, and was a BTech Journalism student at TUT in Pretoria. She now works in Sandton.

Let’s see which would be the more effective transport choice – public transport or buying and using a Datsun GO! Prices start at (2018 prices) R144 500.
