Datsun had previously confirmed that the price for the upcoming redi-GO will be between Rs 2.5 lakh and Rs 3.5 lakh. However, looks like the Nissan-subsidiary has a small surprise for us. Prices for the redi-GO will start from Rs. 2.39 lakh. The starting price is mentioned on Datsun's official webpage.
While we wait for the official launch and variant-wise pricing, scheduled for June 7, here's a quick look at what we know so far. The redi-GO shares its DNA with the Renault Kwid and is based on the same CMF-A (Common Module Family) platform. It also borrows the same 800cc motor, that develops 54PS of power and 72NM of torque. Just like the Renault, ARAI certified fuel-efficiency is rated at 25.17kmpl.
Unlike the Kwid, the Datsun follows a conventional tall-boy design. The profile gets plenty of cuts and creases that give the baby Datsun an edgy look. The automaker will be offering the redi-GO in attractive colours such as a lime green and a deep red, which is sure to appeal to the youth. The interiors follow a safe grey and beige combo, but the equipment list seems spartan when compared to the Renault. For instance, it skips on the touchscreen infotainment system for a conventional single-DIN unit.
In case you are planning on buying one, here's all you need to know to make the decision. In case you're wondering how it stacks up against its sibling, the Renault Kwid, follow this link here.
