Datsun redi GO – All You Want to Know in 10 Quick Points

Datsun rediGo price in India

Launched in the month of June 2016, the Datsun redi GO has been receiving phenomenal response from buyers across the country. The company claims to have sold 3000 units of the vehicle within just 23 days of its launch. Total bookings for the vehicle have now crossed 10,000 units. Available in a total of five variants, Datsun’s small car was rolled out at a jaw-dropping price of Rs 2.38 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

Referred as the country’s first ‘Urban Cross’, the Datsun redi-GO is based on the CMF-A platform which is the same that underpins the Renault Kwid. Despite sharing the platform with the Kwid, the rediGO is 25kg lighter than the former which also help in improving its performance.

Power for both the Datsun redi GO and Renault Kwid comes from the same 0.8-litre petrol mill that has been developed by Renault-Nissan Alliance. The alliance is also working on a new 1000cc petrol engine that might debut with the Kwid AMT later this year.

Everything about the car in 10 quick points – 

1. Datsun redi GO Price in India

Variant Price (Ex-showroom, Delhi)
redi-GO D Rs 2.38 lakh
redi-GO A Rs 2.82 lakh
redi-GO T Rs 3.09 lakh
redi-GO T (O) Rs 3.19 lakh
redi-GO S Rs 3.34 lakh

Thanks to its aggressive pricing, the redi GO has undercut all of its competitors including Maruti Alto 800, Renault Kwid and Hyundai Eon. As a matter of fact, Datsun’s new small car is just 10,000 pricier than the Tata Nano, which is India’s most affordable car.

2. Datsun redi GO Specifications

Engine Details
Type 800cc, 3-cylinder, DOHC petrol
Power 53.2bhp @ 5678rpm
Torque 72Nm @ 4386rpm
Transmission 5-speed manual

The redi-GO’s 799cc, 3-cylinder petrol engine develops power worth 53.2bhp at 5,678rpm against a peak torque of 72Nm at 4,386rpm. Transmitting power to the front wheels of the car is a 5-speed manual gearbox.

At a later stage, Datsun might also introduce an AMT (automated manual transmission) gearbox-equipped version of the redi-GO. If reports are to be trusted, the Datsun rediGO might also get the same 1000cc engine which will be introduced on the Kwid later this year. This engine will be good enough for 65bhp.

3. Datsun redi GO Mileage

City 18kmpl (estimated)
Highway 23kmpl (estimated)
ARAI-Certified 25.17kmpl

Thanks to its light weight and smaller engine, the Datsun redi GO returns an impressive mileage of 25.17kmpl (ARAI-certified). With this, Datsun’s new small car matches the fuel efficiency figures of the Renault Kwid. In other words, Renault Kwid will now have to share the title of being the ‘most fuel-efficient car in the category’ with its cousin redi-GO.

5. Datsun redi GO Colours

The rediGo is available in a total of five exciting shades –  White, Ruby Red, Silver, Lime and Bronze Grey.

6. Datsun redi GO Dimensions

Length 3,429mm
Width 1,560mm
Height 1,541mm
Wheelbase 2,348mm
Ground Clearance 185mm
Turning Radius 4.73m
Boot Space 222-litres


Datsun’s new entry-level hatchback offers the best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm and a high seating position. With a length of 3,430mm, the new Datsun hatchback measures 249mm shorter than the Kwid. Despite that, this will be slightly taller and more spacious. The height and wheelbase of the hatchback stand at 1,540mm and 2,430mm respectively.

7. Datsun redi GO Exterior 

Though the Renault Kwid and Datsun rediGO share their underpinnings, they look completely different from each other. The redi-GO, in fact, looks largely identical to its concept that had made its debut at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo.

The front fascia of the car has a sporty appeal, thanks to its hexagonal honeycomb pattern grille with chrome slat, stylish sweptback headlamps with LED daytime running lights (first-in-class), chromed bumper with integrated LED fog lights and twin character lines running across the front to the rear.

Datsun redi-GO red front

Other elements that the Datsun redi-GO borrow from the concept are sculpted bonnet, steel wheels with skinnier tyres and sporty rear design. At the rear, there is a contoured tailgate, vertical tail lamps and separate reflectors on the lower bumper.

8. Datsun redi GO Interior

The interior design of the redi-GO is quite different from any of its siblings. The car gets a 3-spoke steering wheel, front power window controls on the floor console, round HVAC vents and tall gear lever.

Datsun redi-GO red interior

Datsun claims that the redi-Go offers best-in-class space and kneeroom for front and rear seats occupants. Similar to the Kwid, Datsun’s new small car gets a beige dashboard with black plastic centre console and fabric seats with dual-tone brown and beige finish.

9. Datsun redi GO Rivals  

Positioned below the GO and GO+, the Datsun redi-GO hatchback takes on the likes of Renault Kwid, Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Hyundai Eon, Tata Nano and others in the segment

10. Everything Else

Datsun redi GO Warranty Period

The hatchback comes with segment-first optional 2 or 3 years/ unlimited kilometers warranty & free road-side assistance. This provides an option of up to 5 years/unlimited kilometres warranty coverage.

Suspension System

Front – MacPherson strut with lower transverse link & twin tube hydraulic shock absorbers
Rear – Twist beam with coil spring & twin tube hydraulic telescopic shock absorbers

Tyre Size

Front – 155/80 R13
Rear – 155/80 R13

Datsun redi-Go Ratings
  • Overall Styling
  • Performance
  • Features
  • Comfort
  • Interior Quality


With decent performance, some best-in-class features and an aggressive price range, the Datsun redi-GO surely is a good value for money product. The only drawback is its interior quality.

      Hi Hem

      The car will be launched in the second week of June, 2016. Normally, the dealer will ask you for around 25-30 per cent of car price as down payment. Keeping the redi-Go price in mind, you would require around 75,000 as down payment.

      The redi-Go engine is the same offered with the Renault Kwid, and it is fairly decent engine compared to Eon. Yes, the top-end model gets power steering, AC and sound system, but it does not support Rear view camera.

    renault kwid is far more superior then all small cars like alto, datsun go or redigo,eon etc. most appealing thing is the build quality renault offer in this price range. nissan is selling fragile cars under the brand name ” datsun” while renault has achieve milestone by offering sturdy design,qhality,features shining its brandname. lets hope, redigo will not be as fragile as datsun go and aulto.

      As far as the reverse gear’s positioning is concerned, you’ll get used to it. Many cars these days come with front-shift reverse gear. The on-road in Kochi should be between Rs 3 lakh – Rs 4 lakh.

      In terms of performance, the redi-GO is slightly better. In terms of spaciousness, the Kwid has an upper hand. Mileage-wise, both are equal since they share the engine.

    • Editorial Team

      June 13, 2016 at 8:10 PMJun

      When it comes to after sales, no company can beat Maruti Suzuki in India. However, Datsun has claimed that the redi-GO will have the least maintenance cost in the country, and it’s working on network expansion to offer better after-sales service. Since both the WagonR and rediGo are tall vehicles, driving both the cars should not be a problem for you.
