A brief summary - Datsun Redi GO
From the house of the world’s sixth largest automaker, Nissan is its subsidiary division, Datsun. The specialty feature of Datsun is that it focuses on only making low-cost cars for upcoming, emerging auto markets. But the notable aspect to be kept in mind is that all its already-introduced vehicles are definitely in the reckoning and has a good customer base.
And as part of a reinitiating of sorts, and as a brand strategy, Datsun debuted in the Indian market with two of their cars in Year 2014, the Datsun GO hatchback and the GO+ MPV and had made quite a mark in both these segments. And now, Datsun unveils its third car, the hatchback Datsun Redi GO in this year’s Auto Expo 2016 and is already aiming to position itself in the packed B-segment hatchbacks.
This hatchback is set in its alliance partner, Renault Kwid’s platform. As is common with the present-day, hatchback design, it has an overall sporty, yet a neat look that suits the hatchback design type.
The Datsun Redi GO’s Exteriors
The Datsun Redi GO wears its exteriors with the latest and an eye-on-the-future look. The external fascia retains the chrome hexagonal grille already seen in the GO and GO+ but is now equipped with sleeker headlight and backlight placements. Overall, the Redi GO’s exteriors are definitely very appealing, complete with a sporty rear façade, flared wheel arches and a contemporary look that gives it an overall elegant stance.

With all the standard features and elements retained, the decent and interesting finish with quality upholstery and a good sound accompaniment completes its differential element. The modern dashboard and all safety features in place will also be a notable aspect.
