Latest On Datsun Redi GO
July 26, 2017: Datsun has launched the RediGO with a more powerful 1.0-litre engine. It shares its powertrain with the Renault Kwid SCe, but an entirely different styling gives the redi-GO a distinct flavour.
Features like a high seating position and healthy ground clearance make it a car that’s easier to drive around the urban jungle. It’s shorter than the low-slung Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, but the Datsun makes up for that by offering a wider and taller cabin with more boot space too.
The 1.0-litre 3-cylinder engine in the new Datsun Redi-GO makes 68PS of max power and 91Nm of peak torque. More than the increase of 14PS and 19Nm in peak power and torque figures, the bigger engine impresses with off-peak performance. It’s much easier to drive in the city and requires fewer downshifts to pick up the pace. It delivers a fuel efficiency of 22.5kmpl as per the new ARAI test cycle. The number is just 0.2kmpl less than the new figures for the 800cc Redi-GO. The 5-speed manual is the only transmission option right now. That said, an AMT version is likely to make its debut soon.
With GST kicking in, prices of the Datsun Redi-GO have been revised. Based on pre-GST taxes, the ex-showroom prices have gone down.
Mumbai:The starting price for the hatchback now starts at Rs 2.41 lakh, as opposed to Rs 2.67 lakh pre-GST. That’s a reduction of Rs 26,000. Prices have been slashed across variants. The top variant is now Rs 34,000 cheaper and now costs Rs 3.39 lakh as opposed to Rs 3.73 lakh pre-GST.
Delhi:The starting price for the car remains unchanged for Delhi and starts at Rs 2.41 lakh. However, the top variant has received a Rs 2,000 reduction and now costs Rs 3.39 lakh. Prices have been slashed across all variants except the base variant.
Do note that prices for insurance are marginally higher, as they are taxed at 18 per cent instead of the earlier 15 per cent.
