The Datsun redi-GO entry-level hatchback now comes alongside a facelift with BS6-compliant engines. It looks more sporty on the outside and the cabin was refreshed to catch up with the times too.
The Datsun redi-GO continues to offer two petrol engines to choose from-a 0.8-liter unit that now produces 54PS/72Nm and a 1.0-liter unit producing 69PS/91Nm. Both are paired to a manual 5-speed transmission, but only the 1.0-liter petrol engine also gets a 5-speed AMT variant. Datsun has dropped the S trim in the new lineup of variants and the T(O) trim is the new top-spec. The entry-level model stays the same when all other models get pricier by up to Rs 54,000.
The updated redi-GO has a redesigned interface as demonstrated by the spy shots and leaked documents and the latest 8.0-inch touchscreen monitor is the most noticeable design inclusion. This infotainment device comes with connectivity with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and the panel also serves as a mirror for the rear parking monitor. This is limited to the top-spec T(O) variant while offering a basic audio system from the T variant onwards.
Datsun has also revised the pre-facelift model to include certain basic safety equipment, such as driver airbag, rear braking sensors, EBD ABS and speed warning function. The top-spec variant is restricted to the front passenger airbag. The 2020 redi-GO also sports LED daytime running lights, LED front fog lights (first-in-segment), a wireless tachometer, updated 14-inch dual-tone wheel covers and keyless entry. Although it gets a blower as usual, the entry-level model does not deliver AC and power steering.
