Same hatchback with a powerful 1.0 Litre engine and an affordable pricing

Datsun introduced the Redi-GO last year but unfortunately was not able to attract a lot of attention either because of its compact dimensions or lack of features or perhaps an underpowered engine. Although Datsun might not have addressed the first two issues, they took care of the third and probably the most important issue.Datsun Has decided to add a bigger engine under the hood of their entry level offering.

The redi-Go was the first model that was introduced after the Renault-Nissan alliance’s CMF-A flexible platform which is the same platform that also underpins the Renault KWID as well. The hatchback even uses the same 799cc, a three-cylinder engine which also powers the Renault KWID. The slightly more powerful Redi-Go 1.0 Litre unit is also the same engine which has been borrowed from the Renault KWID, while Renault calls it SCe (Smart Control Efficiency), Datsun has decided to go with i-SAT name.

Jerome Saigot, vice president, Datsun India, added, "Datsun is focused on offering accessible and high-value-for-money cars for aspirational "young India." The Datsun redi-GO 1.0L is the latest example of our brand’s core strengths, and we will continue to enhance the Datsun model line-up in line with our customers’ expectations."

Datsun launched the redi-Go 1.0 Litre in India and for those customers who want to get their hands on the more powerful redi-Go variant can go to any Nissan dealerships and can book theirs.

Datsun Launching More Powerful Ready Go In July Will You Buy One?

We answer all your queries and provide you with the right answer

The Redi-Go is the joint venture effort of Renault and Nissan which was not quite successful mainly because of the hatchbacks compact dimension which resulted in an insufficient interior room. The Redi-Go, when launched, was priced at INR. 2.39 Lakhs ex-showroom making it even more affordable than the Alto 800.

Now according to the recent reports, Datsun is all set to launch a slightly more powerful variant of the Redi-Go hatchback. Now just like the smaller 799 cc unit this 1.0 Litre, three-cylinder unit will also be borrowed from Renault. This is the same unit which also powers the KWID hatchback as well. Now the good news is that just like the KWID the Redi-Go will also get the AMT transmission as well which will be sold as an option beside the manual transmission.

Now installing a slightly more powerful engine and an AMT will be enough to make the Datsun Redi-Go hatchback a reliable entry level car? Well, we try to find out answers to all your questions.
