New Datsun redi-GO Design & Features
The new Datsun redi-GO features a significantly revised design. The exterior of the new model has a fully renewed front end with sleeker and sharper headlamps, new bonnet, larger radiator grille with a prominent chrome frame, L-shaped LED DRLs, LED fog lamps and a more muscular bumper.
On the sides, the Datsun redi-GO has received a Datsun-branded badge above the turn indicators, bigger, 14-inch steel wheels and new, dual-tone wheel covers designed to look like alloy wheels. At the rear, there are new tail lamps with LED signature light. Moreover, unlike on the old model, there’s a roof spoiler with integrated stop lamp. All in all, the SUV-styled city car looks a whole lot bolder and sportier now.
The interior of the new Datsun redi-GO comprises a plethora of changes. Firstly, there's a newly designed dashboard with a shiny trim panel. It's sleeker and looks more stylish. Then, there's a new centre console, which is bigger and looks more upmarket. All the four AC vents are also new, designed to go with the sharper exterior. Datsun has changed even the floor console and door armrests (both front and rear) of the redi-GO. Obviously, the upholstery is also new, and it features tri-arrow pattern, a signature design cue of new-age Tata Motors models.
The design of the Datsun redi-GO’s interior has been transformed and it’s a welcome change. The car no longer feels cheap and gives that low-cost appeal, at least not from the looks of it. Instead, it looks really appealing now.
Steering-mounted controls are still a miss. However, an infotainment system has finally made it to the budget car. It’s an 8-inch touchscreen unit, replete with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, video playback and voice recognition. The instrument cluster has been changed with a new, honeycomb pattern background for the speedometer and a blue backlight for the digital tachometer & drive computer. The ORVMs are now internally adjustable, but manually.
On the safety front, Datsun has added passenger airbag and reverse camera in the redi-GO with the mid-cycle refresh. The parking camera’s feed is shown in the display of the infotainment system.
