Datsun Redi-GO Unveiled in India, here’s everything you need to know!
Datsun has finally taken the wraps off its highly awaited ‘urban-cross’ hatchback, the Datsun Redi-GO. Unveiled during an official event in Delhi today, the Redi-GO marks Datsun’s third product in its Indian portfolio. But what came as a disappointment to many is the fact that the Datsun Redi-GO price in India will be revealed at a later date. While people will be able to book the Redi-GO from 1st May, deliveries will only commence one month later, ie, from 1st June.
The Datsun Redi-Go exteriors have been designed to make it stand out from other competitors in its segment. A ground clearance of 185 mm makes it the highest entry-level hatchback currently on offer. The front fascia has been given a chubby profile, which looks to be a combination of the Chevrolet Beat and Datsun Go. But the overall result is indeed eye-catching, especially due to the presence of Daytime Running Lamps (DRLs). The side profile continues its dynamic nature, as the door panels house multiple prominent design lines, while the prominent kink in the car’s shoulder line provides it a distinctive persona. The rear end too is tastefully designed, with the small vertical tail lamps, and separate reflectors placed on the lower bumper.
No specific details about the Datsun Redi-Go interiors have yet been revealed, but the Japanese manufacturer claims that this new A-segment hatchback will offer best-in-class knee room, and will come with a spacious rear seat. Moreover, the higher placement of floor board is bound to enhance visibility, thus making the car easy to maneuver in stop-go city traffic. The official Redi-Go interior image revealed during the unveil points to a driver-focused design of the dashboard, with the centre console been shifted slightly to the right. The entire dashboard has been given a beige treatment, similar to what is offered with its elder siblings, the Datsun Go and Datsun Go+.

Under the hood, the Datsun Redi-Go engine options will include a 0.8-litre, 3-cylinder petrol unit that is the same mill that powers its inter-stable twin, the Renault Kwid. This motor will be mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Power, torque and mileage figure are yet to be revealed, but the manufacturer has indicated that it will also put out class-leading economy figures.
Prices will be announced at a later date, but we at MotorCruze suspect it to start around the 2.99 lac mark.
