Datsun Redi-Go : Fun Freedom Confidence

Datsun is set to launch the Redi-GO this July and is expected to be the most successful car by the company in India. It is expected to be priced at around 2.5 -4 lakhs bracket. It has a quirky design and stands out from other hatchbacks or budget cars available in the Indian market.  For people upgrading their two-wheeler to four it is of great value.

A 799 cc 0.8L three cylinder petrol engine provides an amazing mileage of 25 km/l. The I-SAT engine automatically adjusts the spark timings with fuel quality and power requirement giving a smooth performance. The maximum power can be attained by this is 54PS with maximum torque going up to 72Nm. The 5-speed manual transmission with light gear shift gives smooth control. It also has an impressive ground clearance of 185mm suitable for huge bumps on Indian roads. In terms of dimensions the car is shorter but taller. The stall stance gives enough space for 4 passengers to be in comfort. The company claims a full turn-around with just a 4.7 meter turning radius.

The features which appeal to me the most and drive me to take this out for a spun would be its safety, looks and comfort.

It is a very attractive cars and steals the eyes. A lot of effort has gone in the making and it does stand out. The fascia also includes a futuristic bumper which is separated from the front grille by a narrow air dam. The headlights and the fog lamps are standard halogen units in a bid to keep the cost of the car down. The side profile includes flared wheel arches and aerodynamic lines that extend into the boot and then onto the other side. Bring the entire family, because there’s more than enough room for everyone. With seating for five along with space for luggage, be ready to make your way through the city along with everyone. The dashboard on your Datsun redi-GO is a thing of beauty. The digital tachometer provides a modern touch, while the drive computer keeps you informed of your current fuel economy. Radio, CD, MP3, USB, Aux-in – it’s all here in one convenient audio system. The Datsun Redi Go will go on sale in five colours red, white, silver, grey and green.

The seats are higher and makes the cabin airy. The Datsun redi-GO's air conditioner has been optimized for Indian weather conditions – Its precisely calculated air circulation ensures that the passengers are comfortable inside, irrespective of the outside temperatures. Datsun redi-GO’s 5-speed manual transmission gives you smooth control, with precise shifting for a more seamless response to your demands. The easy-to-read shift indicator shows the ideal time to shift for maximum efficiency and performance. The front seats get integrated headrests like the rear seats. There is enough headroom and knee-room for two adults in the back while the third person will certainly be a squeeze.

In terms of safety you do get a driver-side airbag on the top-of-the-line-variant. High maneuverability at low speeds and stability at high speeds. High bolstering support while cornering. H-shaped torsion beam with double pivot arm gives high stability and cornering performance. Good view of road and surroundings improves driving confidence and safety.

I would love to drive to work in it to maneuver easily in the crowd. The short radius turn-around and high ground clearance would be a boon in the bangalore traffic. I would like to take it for short trips to test it ultimate performance. 

 Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback. Visit for more info or to book a test ride.
