The Redigo is scheduled to launch on June 7 and will use the same 800cc petrol engine as the Kwid, delivering 53bhp and 72Nm of torque. The power goes to the front wheels via the five-speed manual transmission. Datsun offers lesser features in the Redigo compared to the Kwid, it will miss out on the touch-screen system and would offer few others as optional extras. The Redigo will be available in five colours – ruby red, white, silver, lime green, and grey and will compete with Hyundai Eon, Maruti Alto 800 and Renault Kwid.
The new car will sport the trapezoidal grille like all the Datsun cars (Go and Go+) before it and slimmer more stretched out headlamps. The new Redi-GO will also have a muscular bonnet and a very distinct side profile with a visible partition line on that swoops up just above the rear wheel and fuses into the tail lamps. The tail lamps itself are placed high and the rear hatch also gets a good muscular design.
Motive force for the redi-GO will come from the same 800cc three-pot mill that does duty in the Renault Kwid. It will come mated to a 5-speed manual transmission while the later models of the redi-GO could come with an AMT variant option. With a fuel tank capacity of 35 litres, Datsun claims the redi-GO will return a mileage of over 25kmpl.
Datsun Redi-Go, in India, is the upcoming model in cars. The latest upcoming cars in India are looking for the market share to boost for the company.
