The Datsun redi-GO comes with features like daytime running lamps, steel wheel with full wheel covers, electric power steering, AC, digital tachometer, foldable rear seat, power windows, MP3 player with two speakers and driver airbag. The redi-GO 1.0L may have some additional features to justify its higher price, taking a cue from the 'Sport' Edition.
