Datsun Redi-GO spotted testing in Chennai again – Spied
Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
To rival the Maruti Alto 800.
The Datsun Redi-GO has been snapped again in Chennai. Its production version is expected to be unveiled at or before the 2016 Auto Expo in Greater Noida in February, as sources have told IAB that the car will have its commercial launch in the current financial year.
Codenamed the Datsun I2, the Redi-GO will be the third and the most affordable model in the Datsun lineup. Sharing the CMF-A platform from the Renault Kwid, the Redi-GO would be an all-new car in every aspect. IAB was informed that the A-segment hatchback will be powered by a new petrol engine and not the 0.8-litre SCe motor that is seen on the Renault Kwid. This engine is expected to be offered with the choices of a five-speed manual transmission or a five-speed Automated Manual Transmission.
The Red-GO will compete with the likes of the top-end Tata Nano, the Maruti Alto 800, the Hyundai Eon and the Renault Kwid. Expect it to be priced from well below INR 3 lakhs.
