Datsun redi-GO : Capability of a crossover and convenience of a hatchback.


The latest entrant Datsun redi-GO is a car having the combination of ease of a hatchback and the ruggedness of a sports utility vehicle (SUV).

The Datsun redi-GO will be the third car from the Datsun after the Go and Go Plus which are currently on sale in India.

Datsun says that the redi-Go will be India’s first ‘Urban-Cross’, a car with the best features of a crossover and mixes them with the major attributes of an urban hatchback.

Datsun redi-GO is 3,430mm long. One of its USP is the best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm and different looks. It also gets LED daytime running lights, a first in the entry-level segment.

The tall body structure gives a spacious, bright interior and high driving position that is beyond expectations for a car in this class.



The top-of-the-line redi-GO comes equipped with power steering, front power windows and an infotainment system compatible with CD, USB and AUX. On the safety front, Datsun redi-GO is equipped with PRO SAFE 7 crash protection shell and a brake with the shortest braking distance, all of which ensure a person’s safety.

redi-GO is powered by an all-new, fuel-efficient 0.8L (800cc), three-cylinder engine paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

redi-GO has boomerang shaped tail lamps which look quirky and add some style to an otherwise simple rear. The rear bumper gets a faux skid plate as well and a reflector at either end.
