Datsun motors is all set to buzz the Indian markets with it's new car redi-Go. This one happens to be the third car in the series after GO and GO2. All the three cars have certain similarities as well as dis-similarities. Redi-Go was unveiled during the auto-expo show during the year,2014. Datsun promises to offer an upmarket exterior as well as exterior with redi-Go.I always have a curiosity for trying out my driving skills at different kinds of cars. The Redi-Go looks quite a comfy car to drive in considering, we are a small family.
Redi-GO looks like a smart pick to me because of the following three urban driving blues !!
a) CONTEMPORARY EXTERIORS
I guess present generation always gives some weight-age to the overall appearance of the car and especially, boys nowadays like cars that have a sporty look, somewhat inspired by SUVs as compared to the classic sedans.
Redi-GO from Datsun has a very futuristic design that will appeal to the contemporary youth.For once, the Chrome finish metallic sheen in all the colour variants that are available is a big plus factor.Also, the aeromechanical lines that can be seen on the side-profile of the car and continue to the boot space and then cross over to the other side are a rather quirky incorporation in the design of the car.Redi-GO has body coloured bumpers that beautifully fit in with the design. It is a classic hatchback with tail lights that have been side-swept and wide flared wheels. The boot space is good enough. From the front, redigo offers a sporty look all thanks to it's hexagonal grille and chiseled bumpers.The angular headlamps look spectacular,too.
b) COOL and COMFORTABLE INTERIORS
Coming to the interiors of this car, the wise use of Beige colour for the dash-board and the glove-box is commendable as it gives a chic and clean look to the car. The centre has controls for air-conditioner,AUX/USB,Stereo etc. The speedometer has a wide dial. If we talk about the space, then front seats have enough room for head and legs. The back seats can comfortably accommodate two people but the third one, if at all, has to squeeze in.No luxury features have been incorporated, which is okay considering the fact that price range falls in a very affordable category.You have an option of front power-windows, depending upon the exact model you pick.
c) IT IS A BUDGET CAR FOR AN AVERAGE INDIAN FAMILY
So, it is basically a car for the family of 4.The price range falls in the category of 2.5 to 4 lakhs nearly.
For those who really love driving, this car would be a great buddy as the higher placed driving position and low dasboard helps to give you a fantastic view along with the tapering front window line.It has a 800 cc,three pot 53 bhp motor, in the petrol version. I would love to take Redi-go out for a spin at the Yamuna expressway because it is a fantastic highway to drive on and would give me a fair idea of certain things that matter the most like: pickup, mileage, smoothness while shifting gears, cooling from the air conditioner etc.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun Redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback. So, what are your thoughts about the new Datsun Redi-GO?
