Datsun redi-GO, India's first Urban Cross

Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to experience the Datsun redi-GO, a fantastic car with unparalleled assemblage of style, comfort and built with the finest Japanese technology! I did not know of its upcoming launch until I came across the same in Datsun's official website. The Car by it looks is sporty but not by its engine for sure. The 0.8 L Intelligent Spark Automated Technology is a laid back one delivering very less torque. On the positive side, making a car which look so pretty with superb electronics, spacious interior but a drool worthy 4.7 meter turning radius makes this an affordable city machine to own. For me other cars in its segment are going out of budget. So Datsun redi-GO should be the best preference!

I personally can’t get my eyes off this wonder car. Trust me, Datsun redi-GO is indeed a very charismatic looking car. From the front- bold and classy Datsun character grille, elongated projector head lamps, daytime Running Lamps, with its Yukan design making the car look Strikingly delightful & ready to pounce as you press the accelerator pedal. The high ground clearance of the redi-GO makes the car roll in its class. Lean and dynamic side character lines give the added sporty look to the car along with its heightened stance. I feel the interiors are also very sophisticated. But my heart melted from the moment I read in details about this redi-GO. It is certainly a unique fusion of compact crossover and urban hatchback as the manufacturer is claiming it to be. Overall the interior of the Datsun redi-GO looks comfortable and luxurious. I wish to own it someday and drive thousands of kilometers to travel each and every state of India. May Almighty accept my prayer!

Now time to pick three of its features that appeal to me the most and elaborate why these features make me want to take this revolutionary car out for a test drive.
- Yukan Design: Oh God, right from its design Datsun redi-GO looks like a premium imported car. At least nobody can guess that this one is a sub four lakh model. When you own it you do not have to feel inferior from inside before your friends for buying a budget car. Even if my friends and colleagues check out its price they can only get jealous on their peer for managing such a “value for money” deal!
- Exceptionally high ground clearance: As I said before about my plans of driving across the length and breadth of India, 185 centimeters of ground clearance shall come real handy. India has different types of roads in her different regions. It can be awesome to awful, depending on your luck and choice of place. Sometimes it can be simple gravels scattered without a sign of black tar. So, if your vehicle is not having a respectable ground clearance it will keep bottoming and ultimately there will be sudden break down. Datsun redi-GO will keep me away from such fear.
- High strength body shell to take up impact for traveler safety: Datsun redi-GO's structure is Strengthened for optimized Torsional Rigidity and stiffness and it is UN94 crash performance compliant! I am not expecting of an accident. But in worst case if it happens, I will be fairly safer.

Where in India would you test it? What would you test it for?
- I would love to test it in my city Kolkata itself as this is where I belong. I'll test it for checking whether manufacturer’s promise on above specifications are true or not. From their good reputation I would start with optimism surely.

My firm belief is that Datsun redi-GO would help me beat my urban driving blues with its phenomenal maneuverability, controlled power, comfy interior, superb mileage and added trust of an established brand!

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
