Datsun Redi-GO is available with two engine options. The 800cc motor only produces 53 bhp and 72 Nm of torque which is not enough by today’s standards. This motor will feel lethargic and underpowered and will just be enough for city duties. The 1.0-litre motor would be the pick between the two, as it has considerably more power for a car of this size and would deliver a certain peace of mind behind the wheel.

Variants Price (ex-showroom)
D Rs 3.83 Lakhs

Datsun Redi-GO gets all the necessary features you would expect from a vehicle at this price point and a vehicle of this segment. However, it misses out on ISOFIX child seat mounts in every variant which is a bit disappointing and Datsun could have included it in the top trim at least. Overall, you cannot complain much from a vehicle of this segment and the type of features it offers.

Studying the table, a person can easily infer that the Datsun Redi-GO does not have many features which promote comfort and convenience inside the cabin. The base variant misses out on basic features like power steering, power windows and AC. It is shocking to see that a vehicle in this day and age is not equipped with these basic features. No matter how basic the car is and how affordable the price tag is, every manufacturer should include these basic features in their cars.

There is not much to talk about this department when it comes to this vehicle and overall, Datsun has provided the vehicle with all the necessary features in this aspect.

Conclusion

Datsun Redi-GO is an entry-level hatchback which is a good option for a first-time buyer. It comes with two petrol motors, an 800cc and a 1.0-litre engine. The 800cc motor is practically of no use and the power output will not be enough. It is a lethargic engine and will feel underpowered in the city, let alone on the highway. The 1.0-litre engine should be the pick among the two. The most value for money variant through this analysis turns out to be 1.0 T(O) as it gets all the features the Redi-GO has to offer at a reasonable price. People who prefer an automatic transmission can go for AMT 1.0 T(O) without a problem.
