Set to be launched in India in the next few months, the Datsun Redi-Go facelift will debut with a 1.0-litre engine as well as an AMT option. Based on the same CMF-A platform that underpins the Renault Kwid, the Redi-Go facelift is also likely to receive a few up-market additions to widen its appeal among consumers.

The new 1.0-litre engine that the Redi-Go will receive is believed to be the same 999cc motor as seen on the Kwid. This engine produces 68 PS of power and 91 Nm of torque. Also seen on the Kwid is the AMT variant, which will also be introduced with the Datsun hatchback. Once launched in India, the new Datsun Redi-Go will rival the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Hyundai Eon. Stay tuned for updates.
