Datsun Redi-Go BS4 is being offered with massive discounts worth up to Rs 1.5 Lakh this month.
As the April 2020 deadline is around the corner, auto manufacturers in India are so busy upgrading their cars to the new BSVI norms as well as clearing the BS4 stock before the BSVI rollout. Nissan’s subsidiary, Datsun is bringing attractive discounts worth up to Rs 1.5 Lakh for its entry-level hatch Redi-Go. Currently, the Datsun Redi-Go is on sale at the price bracket of Rs 2.82 - 4.4 Lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi).
In its BS4 guise, the Datsun Redi-Go is offered with a 799 cc and a 999 cc petrol engine options. While the smaller engine can produce 54 PS of max power and 72 Nm of torque, the bigger 999 cc motor is good for 68 PS of power and 91 Nm of torque. Transmission choices include a 5-speed MT as standard along with an optional 5-speed automated manual transmission.
Reports also reveal that Datsun is developing a mid-life update for the Redi-Go which will be compliant with the stringent emission norms. The car will be equipped with BSVI-compliant versions of the outgoing 799 cc and 999 cc powertrains. The Redi-Go facelift has been spotted on test several times but it is heavily camouflaged.
We expect the upcoming BSVI-compliant Redi-Go to sport some visual changes and additional features like a new touchscreen infotainment system. Apart from the styling changes, the 2020 Datsun Redi-Go will be made to meet the latest crash test standards and the upcoming pedestrian protection regulations. Once launched, the Datsun Redi-Go BSVI will continue to join the competition with the likes of Maruti S-Presso, Maruti Alto, Renault Kwid and other cars in the entry-level hatchback segment.

Besides the Datsun Redi-Go, the company is offering two other products for India: Datsun Go and Go+, both of which are not upgraded to the BSVI compliance yet. The Datsun Go can be had at the price of around Rs 3.77 – 6.21 Lakh (ex-showroom) while the Go Plus is positioned at around Rs 4.15 – 6.83 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
