As expected, the design is basically a filtered down version of the Datsun redi-Go concept from the Auto Expo 2014. It is an evolution of the design in their current models, featuring the Datsun hexagonal grille, high ground clearance, and sleek headlamps. One version of the redi-Go was seen with spoiler, roof rails and a rugged-looking bumper.

The Datsun redi-Go is the second product in the Nissan-Renault Alliance to ride on the CMF-A platform, first being the Renault Kwid. The platform has been highly localized at the Renault-Nissan alliance factory in Oragadam, Chennai, and relies on frugal engineering to keep costs low.

Under the hood, reports suggest that the Datsun redi-Go will source the 0.8-liter SCe engine from the Renault Kwid, which produces 54 PS and 74 Nm. It will be paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox that is reportedly retuned for shorter ratios in first and second gears for better pickup. A 1.0 diesel engine is also in the works, which could be introduced later in its lifecycle.

Rivals: Renault Kwid, Maruti Alto 800, Hyundai Eon
Expected Price: INR 2.5-3.5 lakhs, ex-Showroom
Expected release date: April 14
