Datsun India has released an official teaser of its upcoming hatchback, the Datsun Redi GO facelift. It has already been caught testing in India. the launch will happen the once current Coronavirus lockdown is lifted.
It may be noted here that all the models in this segment have already gained compliance with the updated emission norms, with the only exception being that of the Datsun Redi GO.
Now, however, the company is ready to roll out the updated set of motors along with a handful of styling updates that should make the car more likeable.
Datsun Redi GO Specifications
Datsun will equip the hatch with a BS6 compliant petrol engine.
From the test mule, it could be seen that the design of the bonnet and the bumpers have been updated. Also, the grille too will be revised. The teaser image shows sharper headlights and also LED DRLs.
The grille design looks much larger than the present model. These changes seem to be in line with the new crash test and pedestrian safety norms set to come in to force in India later this year.
The rear of the car seems to have seen minimal changes, with only a new bumper and new wheel-hub designs being visible. We also expect the Redi-go to come with a strengthened body-shell to meet the newer norms, as seen with the Datsun Go and Go+.
The 1.0-liter motor in the Kwid facelift makes 68PS and 91 Nm, so we expect similar outputs here. The 0.8-liter motor will continue as well with 54PS and 74 Nm.
Both engines will come with a five-speed manual and an AMT. Prices of the Datsun Redi go are currently starting at Rs 2.8 lakh, and go up to Rs 4.37 lakh for the top version. We expect these prices to increase between Rs 25,000 to Rs 35,000.
