Datsun, the secondary unit of Nissan Company introduced on the domestic shorelines in the year 2014, launched its two incredible cars, including the GO hatchback and GO+ MPV aiming the most selling car industries in India. The company is now all set to launch Datsun Redi-Go hatchback in India that is likely to be challenging for other models like Chevrolet Spark, Maruti Alto, sibling Renault Kwid and Hyundai Eon.
This elegant produce from the Japanese car producers will be based on the platform of Renault Kwid and also borrowed the engine from a subsidiary company. The company has bestowed Datsun Redi-Go with more modern features to emphasize its elegance. With facia coming featured with giant grille resembling the Go hatchback, there are more stunning features to describe Datsun Redi-Go hatchback.
- There are few things you should notice with this hatchback while you first look at it, It has a quirky design and appears different comparable to another budget hatchback accessible in the market.
- Redi-Go looks much similar to concept car being presented at the Delhi auto expo a couple of years back
- Unlike Renault Kwid, it appears more like a hatchback, but not an SUV.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
The hatchback comes with ideal dimensions for the city car that makes it easier to manoeuvre even clogged urban conditions and effortless to park as well. The other highlights are narrow front having a muscular bonnet and signature grille and swept-back headlamps.
Quality, features and interior room
Apart from being taller than Kwid, it is also more spacious. The front seats are featured with support at the sides; however the fixed headrests are a great cost saving measure. The steering wheel has a sporty and nice shape and the contours provide natural grip. The glass area is liberal and you obtain great overall visibility.
The dashboard is slightly offset and really interesting. You get a DIN entertainment system and a USB port. Though there is no touchscreen infotainment screen, you can have a good music player. You also find a grey dash with a splash of piano black near the center console.
Handling, performance and ride
The redi-GO comes with the same 799cc, 3 cylinder petrol engine, along with 5-speed manual gearbox. As anticipated, this engine has been crafted to provide better fuel-efficiency and sufficient city usability, instead of outright performance. Gear shifts are very light and the clutch as well, which makes it unique for the first-time buyer who moves from a scooter or a motorcycle. The hatchback comes with the finest 185mm of ground clearance, while the steering makes it simple to be used in-city. The ride quality is best as well, even on the broken and bad roads.
Even if you are seeking for a second car to add in your garage, the Redi-Go will make up for the best city-runabout due to the best-aforementioned features. It is definitely the car for you to run on the scratches, abuse and the bruises of the daunting urban roads.
I would love to test it for its great handling feature. If given a chance, I would like to drive this car in the crowded street of Delhi. Driving a car in Delhi is always a challenge, people coming from anywhere, kids playing on the street, hawkers and shops at every corner make it more difficult to drive. I am sure Datsun Redi-GO will provide me the confidence to drive in such busy road with its advanced features.
