Letting go my Honda City or even comparing it with some other car brings in the guilt of envying my 4 year old car. But when I read about this new stylishly designed car – Datsun Redi-GO, I was overwhelmed and tempted enough to take a look at it’s features and write about it’s catchy features here. Considering the history of Nissan’s Datsun brand with Datsun Go, Go+, on-Do and mi-Do, it’s hard to resist this one. Ranging along it’s competitors like Maruti Celerio, Renault Kwid, Maruti WagonR, a car buyer has to look at Redi-GO too. With it’s 0.8L and 3 cylinder petrol engine, 54 PS maximum power, 72 mm peak torque, 5 speed manual transmission and 185 mm ground clearance, a car buyer can’t miss on this power packed car.
Among it’s many features, the ones that caught my eyes the most are fuel mileage, stylish exterior and interior and the fact that it’s low on price yet high on quality. It’s impressive fuel mileage of 25.17 kmph is indeed a blessing for us Indians. Be it the rocky roads, busy city streets, speeding on the national highways, the excellent mileage is something to look out for and the Redi-GO has just hit it. The intricately designed stylish exteriors can be easily appreciated by every eye which looks at it. The interiors are carefully crafted to suit the needs of its passengers. From the dashboard to the speedo console, everything is taken care of. The spacious interior is a true achievement for an entry-level car like Redi-GO and stands out from many of it’s peer cars in terms of comfortable seating. The color shades used also give the feel of spaciousness stronger.
What would a first time buyer look for in a car? The price? Of course, a first time buyer would be a beginner to 4 wheeler driving, so he would be more careful about the expected scratches and crashes his new car might have to bear. So the price will play an important role. For a low price, he might have to compromise on the features, but not on the important ones. For using it anywhere between 5 to 10 years, some mandatory features cannot be ignored and good quality is always expected. Datsun Redmi Go makers keep this in mind during it’s creation.
As claimed, the car has excellent milege. Being in a metro city always, I would like to test it on the busy streets filled with pot holes. For daily commuting, I would expect my car to be less jerky on the pot holes and smooth with brakes. After all, after having a busy day or before starting one, I wouldn’t want my car to be an extra over head with it’s own set of problems.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
