The Datsun redi-GO follows the ‘YUKAN’ (勇敢) design philosophy that seeks to create cars that are Brave and Bold, Compact yet Sleek with crisp and clean lines. India’s first urban-cross, Datsun redi-GO blends the modern styling of an urban hatchback with the spirit of a crossover. Its high, wide stance gives you a commanding feel on the road, while retaining the agility of a compact vehicle – truly the best of both worlds.
With roomy interiors for that sense of space, an amazing mileage of 25.17 kmpl and a commanding seating position to help you enjoy all the sights and sounds of the world around you, long drives will never be the same again. On first glance you’ll notice redi-GO’s sporty good looks and smart dimensions. Inside you’ll find spacious room for all passengers and a high eye-point for the driver, making Datsun redi-GO both smart and stylish.
I was very impressed when I read about this new car that has hit the Indian roads. It has some exceptional features that make it the perfect car for the Indian Roads. There are three features that make it the perfect car for me.
High Ground Clearance
It has the best in ground clearance of 185 mm which helps in dealing with the low obstacles that we encounter on the street. Having sprained my back many times because of the low obstacles on the road which are not visible sometimes, this feels like the best feature ever in a car.
I am quite tall and in most of the cars, I feel very cramped in the back seat, especially if the people sitting in the front seat are also tall. The Datsun redi-Go has ample second row knee room for those sitting at the back.
Room for More Storage Space
The Datsun redi-Go has a 222 litre boot, enough to keep a lot of luggage or other items even when all the seats are occupied. This makes it the perfect car for the long road trips that I love to go on.
Test-Driving the Datsun redi-Go
I stay in Mumbai and most of us know how stressful it is to drive in a big city where people are in a hurry to get to their destination and low on patience. Combine that with the poor quality of roads full of potholes and it becomes a nightmare for the person driving the car.
I would like to test the Datsun redi-Go on the Mumbai roads as the roads here are very bumpy and full of people driving haphazardly and pedestrians crossing the road from wherever they want to. It has the shortest breaking distance because of its PAB performance augmented brakes due to which the responsive time from brake pedals to wheels is very short.
The other feature for which I would like to test drive the car in Mumbai is the Tall Boy Stance. I am an animal lover and many times, we have small cats and dogs crossing the roads in Mumbai and it becomes difficult to see them. I would like to see if the Tall Boy Stance helps overcome this hurdle while driving.
With these features, this is one car I would love to own!
