You know that's actually not bad considering the safety features and standard equipment, including aircon.

EDIT: Looks horrendous but then it is cheap.

again, do you buy cars with your head or your heart.
looks are subjective, some people might like it.

If you put a Toyota badge on a wheel barrow it will sell.
Then the owner will tell you:

a) how reliable it is
b) how it will have the highest resell value in the world.

true, but then again,
put a BMW badge on a Donkey cart and the same will happen,
or for that matter any manufacturer badge.

Renault Kwid starts at R163k for a 0 star NCAP safety rating for adult occupant.
Datsun Go starts at R177k for a 1 star NCAP safety rating for adult occupant.
Toyota Ayga starts at R178k - the 2015 model scored a 4 star ASEAN NCAP rating for adult occupant.

Some of these seem more like tuk-tuks than cars...

here you go, hers a tuk tuk as well

considering most people "willingly" get into a Sipho's HIACE every day,
how bad can these budget cars be? certainly better than a Kombi.

or would you rather everybody had Bikes like Asia or India with 5 people on a scooter?

I am sure the state of global transport safety and the myriad options available to people is an interesting discussion, but the point I was making was that safety clearly need not be sacrificed at the price point in question. If Toyota can achieve it then so can Renault/Nissan. Instead, we have a page on the Datsun website dedicated to safety reminding people not to drive when they are tired and to check their mirrors regularly.
