Many think hard work will deliver them favourable results, and that can be true. However, it’s through smart work that one truly sees exceptional results, and with Datsun’s redi-GO zipping through India’s ever-changing and distinctive landscape, we have physical proof of that belief.
In the highly competitive market of affordable cars the Datsun’s entry-level hatchback, the redi-GO offers more than just a budget-friendly vehicle, it also provides the kind of comforts a 21st century driver has come to expect (and deserves). After all, the advancement of technology in any industry should ultimately, also advance quality of human life.
So without further ado, here are the 5 Things You Need to Know about the Datsun redi-GO, which was officially launched on the 7th of June 2016.
1. Exterior Features – Crossover Design
Though small on size, this entry-level hatchback still packs a height punch with its tall-boy design. It has a similar body to its Datsun GO and GO+ counterparts. However, certain aspects like the chrome hexagonal grille was given a more hi-tech looking finish, especially accompanied by its swept back headlights. Its ultra-modern bumper also continues its advanced urban-cross finish, which is separated from the front grille by a narrow air dam.
The redi-GO’s rear definitely doesn’t disappoint either, cementing its sporty meets urban look are its high-mounted rear windscreen, boomerang-shaped taillights and chrome accent along the boot. Plus, overall the car’s silhouette is highlighted by sharp lines and wide wheel arches.

The interior of the redi-GO is fitted with a simplistically styled dashboard, which creates a modern affect and also contains an infotainment system, as well as an air conditioning system. No doubt, this will come in handy during those sweltering summer months driving towards the coast. It can also comfortably accommodate 2 (adults) to 3 people at the back, while its various storage features, like door pockets and bottle/cup-holders adds to its creature comforts.
For serious shoppers or simply individuals who love to be on the go, the redi-GO’s boot provides 222 litres of space, making its compact build deliver on a generous storage component.
