“Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.”
I ALMOST decided to skip over this headline,as I was whiling my time away on the Internet,as usual.But ofcourse,providence had better plans,and I ended up clicking on the Urban cross link.Never have I been more thankful about my clumsy fingers:I ended up spending the better part of an hour exploring the features of India’s first ever urban cross: the Datsun redi-GO!
Being a city girl,I have always been grateful for these tiny,chic means of transportation that can whiz you to your destination faster than any of their bulkier counterparts.(Ofcourse, omitting airplanes.I apologize for my sense of humor,or the lack of it.I must admit I’m quite thrilled by the redi-GO, and humor has taken a backseat.)I might be looking at my very own car, if things go as planned, and I manage to talk daddy dearest into it!
I would love to take it for a spin on the busy streets of Mumbai.I already have visions of myself in the majestic ruby variant,zipping away on the sea-link!Among the features that stand out and might possibly seal the deal for many of us,are the redi-Go’s affordability,its design-from the compact dash,spacious interior,to extra storage space;and its performance.
Starting at around 2,38,900 INR, the Datsun redi-GO certainly does justice to their tagline, “break through”,as it does exactly that, breaking through the stigma of affordability.The times of having to buy expensive vehicles for enjoying simple comforts are over.Having said this,the way the redi-GO does not compromise on its design and technology just to ensure affordability is a mean feat that Datsun have pulled off easily,and with style!
The ergonomic design with its attractive exterior ensures we drive comfortably,even in the chaos and hassle of city traffic.If you get stuck in traffic,sit back,and relax in the air-conditioned comfort of your redi-GO ,with a mobile dashboard to help you fend off attacks in Clash Of Clans,(strictly when you are stuck in traffic.)The specially engineered low-fatigue seats ensure you always ride in comfort.The Datsun redi-GO’s spacious 222 liter boot has enough room for all your junk.And that too,even when all 5 seats are occupied. In case we are headed out to a quiet picnic out of town,we can just fold down the rear seats and get over double the available space,to fit all the stuff that we need,and even the rest that we end up carrying,without really needing to!
However,appearances are not everything.Performance matters.. With its “high torque, high performance engine” and “impressive fuel efficiency”, the franchise promises that it is far ahead of others in its segment. If it delivers on performance too,this car might just be the new hot favorite in town! I can’t wait to take it for a spin,and explore its features,the performance and the mileage.For extra safety,the Datsun redi-GO boasts of performance augmented breaks,reinforced crash protection shell,front airbags,and high eye point opti-view,for a wider view of the surroundings while you drive along the city streets.
All in all,the datsun redi-GO looks like just the perfect vehicle for the average Indian:ranging from the peppy teenager looking for a fun ride with his friends,to a new family buying their first car,to a retired couple eloping into the sunset,it caters to the needs of all!
