Datsun has launched the updated 2019 redi-GO in India. The updated Datsun redi-GO is now compliant with the AIS-145 safety norms with the new safety features. The prices for the 2019 Datsun redi-GO start at ₹2.80 lakh and the top-spec variant is priced at ₹4.37 lakh. Both prices are ex-showroom (India).
The 2019 Datsun redi-GO gets additional safety features such as driver’s side airbag, rear parking sensors, high-speed warning system and front seat belt reminders. Previously, the Datsun redi-GO was updated with ABS with EBD. With the latest update, the entry-level hatchback gets all the necessary safety features.
Datsun has also updated the variant line up of the redi-GO and has discontinued the mid-spec T (O) variant. Apart from that, there are no changes done to the redi-GO. The 2019 Datsun redi-GO draws power from the same 0.8-litre petrol and 1-litre petrol engine.
The 0.8-litre petrol engine produces 53bhp and 72Nm of torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The 1-litre petrol unit churns out 67bhp and 91Nm of torque and the engine is coupled with a 5-speed MT or a 5-speed AMT gearbox. With this update, the Datsun redi-GO will remain on sale till the new crash test norms are implemented. The new crash test norms will come into effect from October 1, 2019.
Datsun is expected to introduce the facelifted redi-GO in India around the festive season and it will comply with the new crash test and pedestrian safety norms.
