Datsun has updated the redi-GO with new safety features to make it compliant to AIS-145 safety norms. The new model's prices start at INR 2.79 lakh* and go up to INR 4.37 lakh* now. The base variant of the car is now costlier by INR 12,000 due to the new additions.
The Datsun redi-GO comes with many standard safety features such as driver airbag, rear parking assist sensor, high-speed warning and seat belt reminder for driver and front passenger now. Only a few months back, ABS with EBD was made standard in the car.
The lower T and S trims of the Datsun redi-GO now comes with central locking with remote lock, while the A trim has gained power steering. The engine options still include a 0.8-litre petrol engine which generates 53 PS and 72 Nm of peak torque and comes paired with a 5-speed MT, and a 1.0-litre petrol engine which delivers 67 PS and 91 Nm of peak torque and works in conjunction with a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT unit. The claimed fuel efficiency of these engines is 22.7 km/l and 22.5 km/l respectively.
Announcing the update, Hardeep Singh Brar, Director Sales and Commercial, Nissan India said: "At Datsun, we are committed to delight the customer and enhance the customer experience. Our popular model, Datsun redi-GO now comes with various added safety features as standard which is yet another testimony of our focus to bring in progressive mobility backed by safety, technology, style and convenience."
The Datsun redi-GO is now compliant to the AIS-145 safety norms, but it will likely need to be reupdated for the BNVSAP safety norms which will kick in on 1 October 2019.
