Datsun redi-GO


Datsun Redi-GO 2016 launched in India at a starting price of Rs. 2.38 lakh, making it a part of the entry-level hatchback segment and one of the most affordable cars in India. There are total five Datsun Redi-GO variants and the Datsun Redi-GO price in India tops at Rs. 3.34 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom, New Delhi.) Under the hood, the ‘urban crossover’ has only one option, which is an 800 cc engine that uses the iSAT technology.

The platform of the new Datsun Redi-GO is same as the Kwid but the latter is slightly longer. The Redi-GO has a length of 3,429 mm, width of 1,560 mm and a height of 1,541 mm. The ground clearance of the small hatch is the best in class at 185 mm. The car is in direct competition with Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Hyundai Eon, Renault Kwid, etc. Therefore, it isn’t going to be easy, but will Datsun Redi-GO make it? Time will tell…





Datsun Redi-GO features the Yukan design philosophy and has quite bold exteriors, ranging from the futuristically-designed headlamps to the horizontal grille that uses D-shaped contours and rear tail lamp cluster that are in a three-dimensional
form.Datsun Redi-GO colors include Lime, Ruby, White, Silver and Grey.

The “tall boy” design gives the car a bigger look and the driver a better clearance. The character lines are sharp and give the curves a strong outlook.



Datsun Redi-GO interiors are quite neat and clean. On the inside, you get decent space but the rear seats can feel cramped. The dashboard is very simple, in a good way, and cluster free. You get a sporty feel once you step inside the crossover and the silver accents in the cabin further add to the looks of the interiors.The air-conditioning in the car is pretty likeable and can help you stay cool throughout your drive.

The car gets low fatigue seats that are designed in a way that they give you an excellent support while driving, thereby ensuring comfort even during long drives.



Datsun Redi-GO specifications include a DOHC 12 valve 800 cc engine that can deliver 54 PS at 5678 rpm. The car comes mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The engine uses the iSAT technology, i.e., the Intelligent Spark Automated Technology.

Datsun Redi-GO mileage is claimed to be 25.17 kmpl. However, how the car actually performs is something that we will have to watch out for. The competing Alto 800 delivers around 18 kmpl in the city and 20 kmpl on highway, whereas Renault Kwid offers 25 kmpl. The claimed mileage of the new Datsun Redi-GO is quite impressive but what it offers in day-to-day driving is what will ultimately matter.

It will be interesting to see how the car performs in the actual scenario because it stands in competition with India’s much loved Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Hyundai Eon and Renault Kwid, which is rising in popularity at a great speed. With H-shaped torsion beam with double pivot arm suspension system, the car drives with a good balance.




The top-end variant of New Datsun Redi-GO features driver side airbags as well, which makes for a very good offer in this segment. Along with this, the car gets disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear to give the driver a confident drive.



We think that 2016 Datsun Redi-GO has the potential to challenge the competitors but the maintenance costs can pose a challenge. The car looks smart and different with its “tall boy” design, and is comfortable on the inside in the front seats. Let’s keep an eye on how far this takes the Datsun Redi-GO.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Datsun redi-GO


When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
