Marketed as India’s first urban-cross vehicle, the redi-Go is based on Renault-Nissan’s CMF-A architecture that also underpins the Renault Kwid. Thanks to an aggressive localization of around 98% and careful spread of features across the variant lineup, Datsun was able to come up with an attractive entry level price point of INR 2.49 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai).

A fresh design inside out, spacious cabin, low cost of ownership and high fuel efficiency are the redi-Go’s key selling points. Speaking on the fuel efficiency, the 800 cc three-cylinder petrol engine delivers an ARAI certified mileage of 25.17 kmpl. It has 54 PS and 71 Nm of torque in store. Transmission is a 5-speed manual unit.
