To be launched on the 1st of June 2016, first units of the new Datsun Redi-Go have started arriving at company’s dealership across India. Here is one such spy photo which was recently clicked at a Datsun dealership in Goa.
Based on the Renault-Nissan alliance CMF-A platform, Datsun Redi-Go is the third and smallest Datsun car to be launched. Sharing components with the hugely successful Renault Kwid, Nissan now hopes that the Redi-Go will have a similar impact on the consumers in India.
Expected to be priced lower than the Renault Kwid, Datsun Redi-Go comes with a sporty styling. Datsun says that this is their Urban Cross, built to take on commuting challenges in Indian cities.
It is powered by the same 0.8 liter petrol three cylinder engine which is also powering the Kwid. This engine delivers 54 PS @ 5678 rpm and 72 Nm @ 4386 rpm. Transmission is taken care by a 5 speed manual gearbox and mileage claimed stands at 25.17 kmpl.
Apart from Kwid, Datsun Redi-Go will also compete with the likes of Maruti Alto 800 and Hyundai Eon. Below is a detailed comparison table of the entry level cars.
