The Datsun redi-GO AMT is now available to pre-order in India. Some dealerships have even started offering test drives of the car.
Like in the Renault Kwid, the AMT option in the Datsun redi-GO is available only with the 1.0-litre petrol engine. It is a 5-speed unit. Customers can pre-book their Datsun redi-GO 1.0L AMT at Nissan and Datsun dealerships nationwide for an amount of INR 10,000. Deliveries of the AMT-fitted redi-GO will commence on January 23, 2018.
The Datsun redi-GO’s 1.0-litre petrol engine is a naturally aspirated three-cylinder borrowed from Renault Kwid. It produces 68 PS at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque from 4,250 rpm. The 1.0L AMT configurations could have a fuel economy rating of around 23 km/l.
Datsun offers the redi-GO 1.0L in only the top-tier T(O) and S grades. It should offer the redi-GO 1.0L AMT also in these two grades or maybe even only the range-topping S grade. The redi-GO 1.0L AMT should get all the main features of the car, including daytime running lamps, power windows (front), MP3 music player with Aux-in and USB and driver airbag.
The Datsun redi-GO 1.0 AMT’s prices are expected to start at around 3.90 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
