World premiere reportedly on April 14.

The Automotive India forum member Vinoth has spotted a pre-production Datsun redi-Go in Medavakkam, Chennai, featuring roof rails, a roof spoiler and a black plastic rear bumper.

The redi-Go test mule appears to be the top-end variant, as it features roof rails, rear spoiler and a different bumper.

From various spyshots so far, the redi-Go appears to be a filtered down version of the Datsun redi-Go concept unveiled at the Auto Expo 2014. It will be the second vehicle to ride on the CMF-A platform that spawned the Renault Kwid, sporting rugged crossover bits and bobs such as black plastic bumpers, roof rails and high ground clearance that should garner appeal in a segment populated with mundane designs.

Reports suggest that the Datsun Redi-Go will be priced below the Renault Kwid, and hence the interior could miss out on some features that are offered in the French mini crossover, such as a touchscreen-equipped infotainment system and a digital instrument cluster. However we come to understand that the Redi-Go will get its own interior design.

The redi-Go is expected to pack the Kwid’s 799 cc SCe engine paired to a five-speed manual transmission. The motor produces 54 PS/74 Nm and is capable of attaining 25.17 km/L (ARAI-certified) in the Kwid.

Competitors: Renault Kwid, Maruti Alto, Hyundai Eon, Tata Nano
Expected Price: INR 2.5-3.5 lakhs (ex-showroom)
Release Date: April 14 (unverified)
