Taking the youth of the country into consideration and trying to grab all their attention with the tag "Fun. Freedom. Confidence". The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun Redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback is priced starting just at 2.50Lakhs(Ex-showroom).To make it easier to access the company has also introduced a ‘Datsun India App’ that can be downloaded from Google Play store. This app not only provides latest news about the Redi-Go, but enables customers to book the car as well. Though I have not test drive the car myself, I have come across many reviews applauding this new beauty by Nissan.
Being from a middle class family by myself, I feel that what makes the Redi-go more appealing to the Indians and make it sure shot winner in India in its category is its fuel-efficiency with Nissan claiming that it can offer an impressive mileage of 25.17kmpl which is best in the category.
Style matters and with the kind of forward styling you would find on a crossover, the Datsun Redi-GO is anything but conventional. With a wide, robust stance, you get impressive room and a sporty attitude. Compact & sleek, yet aggressive robust stance - Created by agile dynamic cabin & robust under body construction. The bold and classy Datsun character grille speaks of its high quality. The gem-inspired chrome bezel and subtle honeycomb pattern perfectly frame the Datsun badge, symbolizing the great things still to come.
We, Indians, make sure that when we spend ,we do it on the right things, with so much to offer and with a price starting from 2.50 Lakhs, Nissan Datsun Redi-Go is surely going to give a feel good feeling.
I would definitely like to test drive this beauty by myself and whenever I get a chance I would definitely like to go on a drive from my native place Guwahati to enchanting Shillong. With just 4.7-metres turning radius the new Redi-Go will be more than handy along the curves of Shillong.
