Commenting on the GO Live concept, Kei Kyu, Datsun’s executive design director said “The GO live was created to show the `freestyle’ mind set of young Indonesian drivers, as well as the diverse character of the GO itself. In short, it’s meant to be fun, upbeat and cool.” The camouflage-style paint scheme offered on the Live concept is based on colors and patterns found on many of today’s trendy clothes, shoes and accessories.

The front fascia of the car features a large, bold hexagonal grille and slim headlamps. Bulging fend flared give the car a wide, muscular stance. The concept is also wider than the regular model, thanks to its flared fenders. The ground clearance has also been increased to accommodate larger 17-inch alloy wheels. These large alloy wheels features yellow spokes that complements the body accents.
