Datsun redi-GO Latest Updates
Datsun has updated the redi-GO lineup making it safer now. The entry-level hatchback now gets driver airbag, rear parking assist sensor, high speed warning and seat belt reminder as standard. Along with this, Datun has also discontinued different variants and the hatchback is now only available in 5 variants - D,A,S and S 1.0-litre and S 1.0-litre AMT. The base variants are now more dearer while the mid variants get a price cut.
Features like a high seating position and healthy ground clearance make it a car that's easier to drive around the urban jungle. It's shorter than the low-slung Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, but the Datsun makes up for that by offering a wider and taller cabin with more boot space too.
The 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine in the Datsun Redi-GO makes 68PS of max power and 91Nm of peak torque. More than the increase of 14PS and 19Nm in peak power and torque figures, the bigger engine impresses with off-peak performance. It's much easier to drive in the city and requires fewer downshifts to pick up the pace. It delivers a fuel efficiency of 22.5kmpl as per the new ARAI test cycle. The number is just 0.2kmpl less than the new figures for the 800cc Redi-GO. The 5-speed manual is the only transmission option right now. That said, an AMT version is likely to make its debut soon.

Editor's View of Datsun redi-GO
value for money, spacious, good ground clearance
average build quality, low quality plastics and is low on features
The Datsun redi-Go looks very appealing from most angles and has ride quality working in its favour. But, the engine isn’t very refined and quality isn’t impressive either.

Datsun redi-GO Highlights
The redi-GO has a 799cc and a 999cc engine, both of which are available in a 3-cylinder configuration. Power output for the two motors stands at 54PS and 68PS while the torque is rated at 72Nm and 91Nm, respectively. Both the powertrains are paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The smaller engine delivers 22.7kmpl, and the bigger one can run 22.5kmpl.
Exterior and Interior
The Datsun redi-GO's tall body, high ground clearance and an aggressive face help it confidently pull off the mini crossover look. No wonder it's the most sought after car in the Datsun lineup. The LED DRLs look tacky, but there are enough cuts and creases in the body panels to make the overall design far more appealing than what its price tag would suggest.
The 800cc variants of the redi-GO had a grey interior, which looked pretty basic. With the launch of the 1.0-litre variant, Datsun updated all trims of the redi-GO with black panels, which gives the cabin a richer vibe. Asymmetric AC vents offer a unique styling twist while a small MID behind the thick steering wheel offers lots of information. Storage spaces are abundant, but there are no bottle holders on any of the four doors. The tall dimensions liberate a lot of space inside, and there's no shortage of headroom or knee room even for tall occupants.
The Datsun redi-GO is available in five trims: D, A, T, S and Sport. There's also a T(O) trim that sits between the T and S variants. The smaller motor is available across all variants, but the bigger engine is only available in the T(O) and S options. Pricing for the 800cc variants ranges from Rs 2.41 lakh for the D trim and goes up to Rs 3.63 lakh for the Sport. The 1.0-litre variants are available at a premium of Rs 23,200 over comparable 800cc variants and priced at Rs 3.57 lakh for the T(O) and Rs 3.72 lakh for the S. There's no automatic available with the redi-GO, but it's likely to borrow the 5-speed AMT setup from the Renault Kwid.
Maruti Suzuki Alto 800: The Alto 800 challenges the 800cc trims of the redi-GO. On the design front, the Alto 800 feels dated, but its strength lies in its reliable mechanicals, extensive sales and service network, low running costs and a strong resale value. Although its USP isn't visible to the naked eye, it’s still at the top of its game.
Maruti Suzuki Alto K10: The Alto K10 competes with the 1.0-litre variants of the redi-GO and offers the same no-frills ownership experience that you'd associate with a Maruti, in a package that's quite a bit faster than the basic Alto 800. It has its shortcomings which swell up when parked next to the Kwid. Thankfully, it packs no unpleasant surprises, and that's its strength.
Hyundai Eon: The Eon wears Hyundai’s Fluidic design theme that's starting to show its age. Just like the Alto, it offers solid reliability and a low cost of ownership. What sets it apart from the competition is its styling, which is more than just functional. The 1.0-litre engine in the Eon has a bit more power and torque, but its heavier kerb weight keeps its performance at par with the Alto K10. Just like the redi-GO, the Eon doesn't offer an automatic transmission of any kind.
Renault Kwid: The Kwid has made budget hatchbacks cool without sacrificing on practicality. It is surprisingly spacious, very well-equipped and handles bad roads with ease. The only critical miss is the lack of ABS, but the competition doesn't offer that either. The rotary dial-type AMT is available with the bigger 1.0-litre engine, and it's, possibly, ‘the world’s simplest interface in an automatic’. Although this system requires a steep initial learning curve for experienced drivers, the benefits for new drivers are unmatched.
The redi-GO brings the tall boy design to the entry-level hatchback game. Despite its limited length, it offers good headroom and usable cabin space. A high seating position offers a good view of the road ahead, and the healthy ground clearance of 185mm allows you to overcome larger speed bumps without scraping the belly. The redi-GO shares its engines with the Renault Kwid, albeit without the option of an AMT. The Datsun badge seems to be the only thing holding it back.
