When we talk about cars, the first thing that pops out in our minds is the luxury. Cars are a symbol of luxury and automatically we have an assumption that cars are an expensive affair. So before purchasing a car, buyers think ten times and conduct a very very very thorough research.

For the onlookers, buying a car may seem like a not so difficult decision but only the owners of a particular vehicle will know about the amount of head-scratching, strategic budgets, planning, saving up, and marketing campaigns and surveys that are deployed behind the purchase.

Now, because the consumer is going to spend a big amount in purchasing a vehicle, their expectations, especially about the performance, reliability and comfort, from the sellers are also high. So, many companies fail to deliver the best product at a pocket friendly rate. But there is a new car to be launched this month which not only meets all its customer demands but also has a very pocket friendly approach.


Datsun, a Japanese brand owned by Nissan, is here with an all new product which is said to be specially made for the rising demands of the ready to go young generation. The Datsun redi-GO “Urban Cross” hatchback is the brand’s third offering in the Indian market after the Go and Go Plus.  Redi-Go is one of the best products the brand has come up with till now. It takes the best features of a crossover and mixes them with the major characteristics of an urban hatchback.

The best of Japanese technology has been implemented into the Datsun redi-Go to give it the perfect look, high class performance and a soothing comfort to the owners of the car. Datsun rediGo hatchback is said to be the much-awaited car of 2016.

Let’s take a look at the three most interesting features appeal to me the most:

  • Design and Looks

The first thing that caught my eye is the look of this car. Datsun’s redi-Go has a very trendy and stylish look with a vibrant colour which is a perfect fit for the young generation and specially for me. It features a very contemporary and sporty design which is exactly what youngsters like me look for. The car is available in five bright and chic colours i.e. White, Ruby Red, Silver, Lime and Bronze Grey.



Another cherry on this cake is the sleek and dynamic look of the car. The car has stylish headlights and a distinctive ‘D-cut’ grille. The gem-inspired chrome bezel and delicate honeycomb pattern perfectly enclose the Datsun logo. With higher stance and a wider window, the view is also wider and better. The interior of the car and the dashboard has a very classy gray styled look. Also the daytime running lamps are an added benefit that will help you drive safely. The Datsun redi-Go’s looks are going to be one of the biggest selling points of the car and is one of the most important reasons I would love to take this car out for a spin.

  • Comfort

The second thing that makes me want to take this car for a spin is the comfort. Buyers, including me, consider the comfort level offered by a car as one important factor while making a purchasing decision. Datsun redi-Go offers a spacious interior with comfortable seating for at the most five people with their luggage. It also has power windows switches conveniently located so that both, the driver and the co-driver, can use them easily and everyone can enjoy fresh air. So you don’t need to continuously pester the driver to open or close the windows. The 5-speed manual transmission also gives you smooth control over the car.



Apart from this, the seats are also thin and tall with a good back support which keeps the driver comfortable throughout the journey. I am very particular about the driver’s seat comfort. The superior air condition system has been built specially keeping in mind the Indian rough weather. Also its incorporated center AC vent makes sure that 50% of the air flow distribution is given to the passengers on the back seats. With the USB port and the high quality audio system, you can plug in your favorite music and have a pleasant ride.

  • Performance

The consistency of the car is a very important factor on my list. If I buy a car, I should be able to use it for at least 4-5 years smoothly. And this is what Datsun redi-Go offers. The high ground clearance will help you drive smoothly through rough Indian roads. So, goodbye bumpy rides. There is a shift indicator that shows the ideal time to shift for maximum efficiency and performance. The Datsun redi-Go has the Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (i-SAT) Engine which automatically adjusts spark timing in response to fuel quality and power requirement and as a results gives you a smooth performance.


The car also has a small turning radius which will really be helpful for me as I live in a tight and congested area. The car has an improved braking system and a crash protection shield along with airbags to keep the passengers safe. The engine has been designed in way as to offer the owner a good fuel-efficiency and adequate city usability. This means, the car can be used for a long time without having to worry about anything.

Where would I drive it? What would I test it for?

I would love to take it for a spin in my town (Uttan). I live near the beach and the road towards the beach has a beautiful view with beautiful trees, greenery and flowers which I will be able to enjoy due to the wide opti-view window. Also, with this car I will be able to drive smoothly through the bumpy roads. I would to test this car out for its fuel efficiency as well as to see how many people can actually comfortably sit in it.


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