Datsun redi-GO (1-litre) AMT launched in India. The new Datsun redi-GO AMT carries an introductory price tag of Rs 3.80 lakh for T (O) trim and Rs 3.95 lakh for the top-spec S trim. Both prices are ex-showroom (Delhi). The deliveries of the redi-GO 1.0L AMT will begin from today across India. The bookings for the car had commenced on January 10, 2018.
Datsun claims that the newly launched redi-GO 1.0L AMT is the most feature rich AMT model in its segment. The redi-GO Smart Drive Auto is offered with two driving modes: Dual-Driving Mode and Rush Hour Mode to provide an ultimate driving experience, especially in urban conditions.
In the Dual-Driving Mode, customers can switch between automated and manual mode during uphill/downhill and city traffic conditions. The Rush Hour Mode offers a crawling function, with a cruising speed of 5-6km/h in bumper-to-bumper traffic conditions. The AMT variant of the redi-GO will certainly attract urban buyers as it is easy to drive in traffic conditions.
The Datsun redi-GO AMT draws power from the existing 1-litre Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (iSAT), three-cylinder petrol engine producing 67bhp and 91Nm of torque. The AMT variant of the Datsun redi-GO is based on the CMF-A platform and shares its components with the Renault Kwid.
The Datsun redi-GO AMT features Bluetooth audio streaming with hands-free calling available in the T(O) and S trim levels. The AMT hatchback comes with all-black interiors, central locking with remote key. The redi-GO AMT also sports best-in-class ground clearance (185 mm), cabin space, boot space and head room.
The Datsun redi-GO AMT is dearer by Rs 22,000 as compared to the standard variant of the hatchback. With the Smart Drive Auto function with two driving modes and the addition of Bluetooth Audio System justifies the bump in the price tag. The redi-GO 1.0L AMT is available in five colours: Ruby Red, Lime Green, White, Grey and Silver.
