Datsun has teased the Redi-Go facelift
Nissan India has just released teaser images for the Redi-Go hatchback made by its Datsun sub-brand. This shows Nissan‘s commitment towards Datsun for our Indian market, even during these troubled times. Datsun looks to reshape the brand image with this new revamped Redi-Go that gets an all-new package with the new design and features.
The picture showcases the front three-fourth of the car revealing a distinct L-shaped DRL. Additionally what can be seen is the front grille and a pronounced hood with bold, sharp creases. Overall, Datsun is aiming to give it a more SUV-like stance for better road presence and a bold progressive exterior look.
But at first glance, the teaser images of the Redi-Go make it look a bit like a baby Ford Ecosport, especially when you look at the headlights. However, if you take the image and increase the brightness you will also see the alloy wheels and a little bit of the side body lines that you can check out in the photo below which editor Sirish has tweeted out.
The Datsun Redi-Go has been spotted testing with multiple spy shots of it showing a high stance, giving it much better ground clearance than the previous model. We also hope Datsun has worked on the safety aspects of the car, as the previous generation performed quite poorly during standard crash tests. Coming to the interiors, it might get a newly designed touchscreen infotainment system and now with also the mandatory dual airbags up front.
Powering this little hatchback will most likely be a BS6-compliant version of Datsun’s 1-litre petrol engine, mated to a five-speed manual and an AMT transmission.
As of now, we do not have any timeline of when the car will be launched, but it will go head-to-head with the Maruti Suzuki Alto and Renault Kwid There will likely be a price hike, and that is due to the addition of features like airbags, anti-lock braking, high-speed warnings and other essential safety equipment now mandated by the government.
