Datsun Redi-GO 2020 is spotted during its road test for the first time
Datsun’s business is not going well in South East Asia and Russia, which causes the Japanese carmaker to retreat from these markets. In the meanwhile, the same scenario is unlikely to happen in the Indian market, at least in the near future. Currently, the facelift version of the Datsun Redi-GO was seen running on the road in India with full camouflage, indicating an imminent launch in our market. The spy images suggest that the hatchback is going to get a comprehensive make-over to keep up with the competition in its space.
As seen in the video, the Datsun Redi-GO test mule is covered in full camo-wrap from the front to the rear. However, if we take a closer look at the design of the new hatchback, we can still notice some slightly different details. For example, the Datsun Redi-GO is likely to get a revised front end with a new grille and bumper along with a different light setting. The interior of the Redi-GO is completely hidden from the camera lens, however, we can expect to see some exciting bits to be updated on the inside.
Datsun Redi-GO will get some updates regarding the cosmetic and mechanics.
Other than cosmetic updates, it is expected that the facelifted Redi-GO will feature a few alternations in terms of the structure in order to comply with upcoming stringent safety regulations. Regarding safety, Datsun has a lot of work to do with the Redi-GO since the current model is poorly rated in the Global NCAP crash test with an only one-star rating.
The 2020 Datsun Redi-GO will retain the ongoing CMF-A platform. The same platform is used on the Renault Kwid and the small MPV Triber. Under the hood, the current engine options will be carried forward with some slight updates to meet the upcoming BSVI emission norms. The 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre petrol engines are currently good for a total output of 53 PS and 72 Nm along with 67 PS and 91 Nm, respectively. There will be no change regarding the transmission options. These engines will be mated to either a 5-speed manual or a 5 AMT. To get more car news, visit IndianAuto.com.
