Datsun, the affordable car canopy from the Japanese automobile manufacturer, Nissan, had first made its mark in India by launching its Go hatchback series that was followed by the Go+, which is its seven-seater variant.
Although both the cars were extremely pocket-friendly to the Indian customers, still it could not make up to the anticipated sales numbers for the Japanese carmaker. June 2016 saw Datsun launching its new redi-GO hatchback series in India and since then they have been doing some good business. On September 29th, 2016, the Japanese automaker will be launching a limited edition of the sporty looking redi-GO.
Here is what to expect from the new limited edition variant of redi-Go from Datsun.
The External Details
Based on the picture of the redi-GO limited edition variant that was released by Datsun, the outsides of the car are expected to have a blacked-out hexagonal framework, which will have black strips running on the lower half of the doors and over the bonnet in the center. The wheel covers will also receive a treatment with black color. Overall, the car is definitely eye-catching. In addition to all this, it is expected for Datsun to add some exclusive body color options especially since it is for the limited edition variant.
The Internal Details
Though the company has not yet released any photographs regarding the slick and snug interiors of the car, it is foreseen that Datsun will try to liven up the interiors with body-colored accessories on the plastic panels and even the upholstery shall be given the spotlight.
Under the Hood
The limited edition will be power-driven by the same motor which runs the regular variants of the Renault Kwid and the redi-GO. It has a three pot engine with a capacity of 0.8 liters, running on petrol, producing a torque of 72Nm and a power of 54PS. With an average mileage of 25.17 kmpl, this petrol-powered engine is certified by ARAI as one of the most fuel-efficient engines in India.
Renault, which is the alliance partner of Nissan in India, had recently launched the 1.0-liter variant of its latest best-selling car, Kwid, to trick in more customers. Datsun seems to have grasped on to the same strategy but with a different take of its own keeping in mind the interests of the Indian customers.
With the standard redi-GO ringing in some good numbers for Datsun, the limited edition is also ready to add some panache to the hatchback series from the Japanese automaker.
