Datsun has launched a more powerful version of its bread and butter model, the Redi GO 1.0L, at Rs 3.57 lakh (ex-showroom, Pan India). It borrows its engine from the Renault Kwid 1.0L. We have driven the Datsun redi-GO 1.0L recently; here’s what its extra power and torque feel like in the real world: Datsun redi-GO 1.0-Litre: First drive review
Prices (Ex-Showroom, Pan India)
Datsun redi-GO T(O): Rs 3.57 lakh
Datsun redi-GO S: Rs 3.72 lakh
Unlike the 0.8-litre version, the redi-GO 1.0-litre is available in just two variants – T(O) and S. It borrows its features from the standard hatch, such as daytime running lamps, audio system (no Bluetooth connectivity), front power windows, power steering among others. It comes with an all-black cabin, which is also present in redi-GO Sport. It features a central locking system with remote keyless entry and a lock/unlock button on the dash, all of which is added for the first time in the Redi GO’s line-up.
Engine: 1.0-litre i-SAT
Power: 68PS @ 5500rpm
Torque: 91Nm @ 4250rpm
Transmission: 5-speed MT
Fuel Efficiency: 22.5kmpl
The redi-GO 1.0L goes up against its own sibling, the Kwid 1.0L and the Alto K10, all of which are the entry-level 1.0-litre offerings in the country. Though the Kwid 1.0L and the Alto K10 offer an AMT (automated-manual transmission) option, the redi-GO will be a manual only offering for now. It might borrow an AMT unit from the Kwid at a later stage.
