Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
Datsun is a well-known Japaneses car brand owned by Nissan. It made a stellar debut in India and is now well known here. Datsun recently launched their Datsun redi-GO which is a mind blowing car in its segment. It is chic, classy, beautifully crafted and packed with features. It makes the ideal city car with its comapct design and a turning radius of 4.7m. Imagine that!
As a millennial soon to hit mid-twenties, my own car means a great deal to me. It is a statement that yes I can. Datsun redi-GO makes for a smart choice out of all the others. It is really a breakthrough with its focus on fun, freedom and Confidence. These are the words by which every millennial leads their life. And the green color of the Datsun redi-GO is just the right amount of funk one needs. Here are some features I really loved of the Datsun redi-GO.
1. The Exterior with Yukan Design and D-Cut Grille
The first thing that anyone notices about the car is its design. The looks! Datsun redi-GO scores full marks when it comes to the exterior. The Yukan Design, which is often only found in crossovers, gives the car a robust exterior with a wide stance and a very sporty feel. The first word which comes to my mind when I see this car is FUN. It fun yet sleek with a Modern yet functional driver oriented feel. And this is not all. It comes with a classy and bold D-Cut grille which adds a character to the front and speaks of the quality of the design. The design is just specifically designed keeping the youth in mind and caters to their every need. It is the embodiment of the fun, freedom and the confidence of today’s youth.
2. 5-Speed Manual Transmission with Drive computer and Shift Indicator
Driving can be a perilous task sometimes especially for a newbie. We can always wear out those gears with lousy shifting and less efficient changeovers. Datsun redi-Go solves all this with its 5-speed Manual Transmissions, which guarantees better fuel efficiency and control, and its Drive computer. The Drive computer provides instantaneous and average mileage calculations. It shows the distance to empty and the fuel remaining which is very useful information especially when embarking on long trips out of town. The shift indicator is just a blessing. It is an easy-to-read indicator placed right on the front screen which shows the ideal time to shift for maximum fuel efficiency and great performance. This is truly important for newbies who are still learning these things.
3. Safety Ensured with the Datsun Pro-Safe 7
Road accidents are a very real possibility with odds in nobodies favour. They happen all the time and luck may not always be at your side. Datsun puts safety first and its redi-GO comes with Datsun Pro-Safe 7 which is a common thread across all Datsun Cars making them all safe, secure and reliable for all to use. It comes with performance augmented brakes which give the shortest braking distance ever. This is especially important in cities. It comes with a reinforced crash protection shell. This is a high strength body shell which is designed to absorb impact for passenger safety. It is optimized for torsional rigidity and stiffness and provides better frontal offset crash performance. It is also UN94 crash performance compliant. It also carries an adaptive electric power steering and a force absorbing bolster support for greater safety of the passengers.
Datsun redi-Go provides great spacious interiors, awesome fuel economy with an I-Sat engine, superior air-conditioning and a turning radius of just 4.7m. If I got a chance to test drive this incredible car, I would definitely try it on Delhi roads where I’ll be using it the most. I would test this for the brakes, the performance and definitely the 4.7m turning radius. I would also like to try the Shift indicator which I think is a very cool feature to have.
All these features of the Datsun redi-GO would just drive my urban driving blues away. Knowing that I’m safe in the car is a huge relief. Also the performance enhancing features are a major thumbs up. Hence, I’m a total fan of the Datsun redi-GO. For me, this is the best car for urban driving.
