The spy images from Autocar India showcase the upcoming redi-GO facelift model completely camouflaged without revealing much changes to the interiors or the exterior of the hatchback. However, we can see that the strong shoulder line on the side of the hatchback seems to be missing which gave the small hatchback an aggressive look.

The facelift model of the redi-GO is expected to feature a host of changes. This includes a new structural design to comply with the crash-test norms which came into effect from October 2019. Also, it would feature an updated version of the 800cc and 1.0-litre engines to comply with the upcoming BS6 emission norms.

Both engines come mated to a five-speed manual transmission as standard with an optional five-speed automatic on the 1.0-liter engine.

We expect the updated engines to produce similar power figures when updated to become BS6 compliant. The two engines are already updated to BS6 and featured on the redi-GO's segment rival the Renault Kwid.
