Datsun Is Ready to Take on the Alto and the Kwid With the Redi-Go
The Redi-Go has been jointly designed and manufactured by Renault and Nissan.
Datsun came out with a hatchback called ‘Go’ a few years ago but failed to create a stir
in the market. Now, the company is ready for round two with the Datsun Redi-Go. Although
there was no official announcement about the price of the car during its global
unveiling, the company did say that the bookings will commence from May and deliveries
will begin from June.
Datsun classifies the Go as an Urban-Cross, but it is more like a tall hatchback with a good ground clearance (185 mm).
The large D-Cut grille with chrome outlining, wrap-around headlamps and Daytime Running Lights (DRLs) make the car look bigger than it actually is.
The car is powered by an 800 cc three cylinder engine that comes mated to a 5-speed transmission.
The interiors have several of compartments and a decent-looking three-spoke steering wheel, and the instrument cluster is a combination of digital and analogue meters.
With the Redi-Go, Datsun is planning to take on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Alto and will provide an interesting alternative to the segment leader. For now, we need to wait for the price announcement, and if Datsun manages to price it around the Rs 3 lakh mark, it might be able to do what the Datsun Go couldn’t.
