If all your needs point towards a small hatchback which offers two-pedal convenience for less, you must take a good look at the newly launched Datsun redi-GO AMT. An entry-level hatchback which offers modern looks and a small footprint which is so essential in urban conditions these days, the redi-GO AMT has been launched at an introductory price of INR 3,80,600.
Available in five colour options – Ruby Red, Lime Green, White, Grey and Silver, the redi-GO AMT looks identical to its stick-shift sibling and is powered by a 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder which is good for 68 PS @ 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 rpm, all transferred to the front wheels via a 5-speed AMT system. The new Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto comes with new Dual-Driving Mode and Rush Hour Mode, where the former allows the driver the flexibility to switch between automated and manual mode during uphill / downhill and city traffic conditions. Further stamping its authority as an Urban warrior, a Rush Hour mode allows the car to cruise at a speed of 5-6 km/h, which is such a boon in bumper to bumper traffic conditions.
Offering a ground clearance of 185 mm, the redi-GO AMT is built to take on the tough urban challenges our cities provide. With the new Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive, Datsun has also introduced a new Bluetooth Audio System (with hands-free calling and Audio Streaming) across its range of redi-GO model in T (O) and S grades. Talking about the new launch, Jerome Saigot, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. said, “Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto combines the convenience and flexibility of dual-driving mode with best-in-class ground clearance, cabin space, boot space and headroom. In line with our commitment towards our customers, we are launching the new redi-GO Smart Drive Auto at an attractive introductory price and rich features in its segment.”
