Datsun India has launched the all-new redi-GO compact hatch in India and it boasts of a slew of changes including a reworked design and some class leading connectivity features that definitely make it a lucrative offer in its segment.
The redi-GO has carved a niche for itself in the entry level car market as a spacious and sharp looking hatchback. The new version now benefits from a revised look that gives it a progressive yet sporty stance and definitely makes it look more upmarket. There is enough chrome up front to give its distinctive fascia a fresh appeal and you also get neat looking L-shaped DRLs, silver accents on the headlights, LED fog lamps and 14-inch wheels that now sport a Pentablade dual tone wheel cover. Datsun has also revised the cabin with a new fabric that carries over to the door trim as well.
In terms of class leading features, the new redi-GO offers an 8-inch touchscreen advanced infotainment system that comes with voice recognition and is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The instrument panel has been revised and now sports a dual tone look with a premium gunmetal finish.
On the safety front, the Datsun redi-GO boasts of a crash resistant body structure, pedestrian protection, dual airbags and a rear view camera with projection guide lines to help in tight situations.
Having said that, the Datsun redi-GO carries over some of its key characteristics that it is known for including the 187 mm ground clearance, class leading knee room for rear seat passengers and the 0.8L and 1.0L engines. On that note, Datsun is offering the redi-GO in a total of six variants including manual and Smart Drive Auto transmission options and prices start at INR 2.83 lakh.
