Datsun has just released a teaser image of the upcoming redi-GO hatchback. The updated model is expected to have some design changes, feature upgrades and of course a BS-VI compliant engine
Nissan India has dropped a teaser image of the upcoming Datsun redi-GO face-lift. As you’d expect, the redi-GO will now feature a BS-VI compliant engine. Aside from the updated heart, expect the hatchback to also feature some changes in terms of design. The image released gives a glimpse of the 2020 redi-GO with a larger grille, reworked headlamps with L-shaped Daytime Running Lamps and a Datsun badge on the fender above the wheel arch. The image also reveals a new wheel design – although the teaser image deceives you into thinking that it will sport alloy wheels, it is unlikely to be offered in this class of cars. The redi-GO face-lift will continue to sit on wheel caps. At the back, the image shows a stubby roof-mounted rear spoiler – it is likely that this will be limited only to the top-spec variants.
Datsun hasn’t quite released any images of the interior but we expect it to feature some changes too. Just like the Renault Kwid, expect the redi-GO also to come with a touchscreen infotainment unit.
At the heart, the redi-GO will continue with the 799cc three-pot petrol motor that will continue to make 54 bhp and 72Nm. This engine will come paired with a 5-speed manual. Just like before, the redi-GO will also come with a 1.0-litre engine option in the higher-spec models. This one will also continue to make 67 horses and 91Nm, and will come mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT.
The last update that the car received was in July 2019, when some new safety features were added to the list. Despite the addition, the redi-GO only scored a single-star in the Global NCAP tests. It remains to be seen if Datsun has really worked on this aspect in the updated 2020 redi-GO.
