Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.
Marks the return of Datsun to Sri Lanka.
Datsun has confirmed that the all new Datsun redi-GO will launch in Sri Lanka in September. This marks the return of the Datsun brand in Sri Lanka, where it will sold through Nissan’s long-time partner in Sri Lanka, Associated Motorways (Private) Ltd. (AMW).
Prices and variants of the redi-GO will be announced closer to its launch date. It will cost slightly lower than the Renault Kwid, which is priced from LKR 2,095,000 (INR 9.63 lakhs). The redi-GO is based on the Renault Kwid, sharing the 0.8L three cylinder engine that produces 54 hp and 72 Nm, paired to a 5-speed manual transmission.
The Datsun redi-GO is one of the most fuel-efficient petrol hatchbacks in India, capable of averaging a fuel efficiency of 25.17 km/L (ARAI-certified).
The redi-GO measures 3,429 mm long, 1,560 mm wide, 1,541 mm high, has a wheelbase of 2,348 mm, and boasts of a best-in-class ground clearance of 185 mm.
