First, let's talk about the biggest upgarde though - the engine. The redi-GO is now powered by a 1.0 litre, three-cylinder engine that makes 67 hp of power and 91 Nm of torque and is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. Thanks to the Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (iSAT), fuel efficiency has also been improved to 22.5 kmpl (as certified by ARAI).
The redi-GO now comes with LED DRLs (daytime running lights) mounted on the bumper as standard. The more visible the car is for others on the road, the safer it will be and DRLs promise just that. The Datsun GO series was first launched some three years ago. The GO was the first to launch, followed by the GO+ and then finally redi-GO.
The interior is now all-black and certainly gives it a premium appeal. The black treatment has not hindered with the perception of the cabin space either. Heavier than the older version, the redi-GO 1.0L has not seen any changes to the suspension or chassis. But it has been tuned in accordance with the increased weight, which has also helped in improving stability and handling.
redi-GO owners will no longer need to slip in a key to unlock a door. It now comes with a remote key for keyless entries. However, speaking of convinience, the redi-GO is so far not available with an AMT (automatic transmission), while both its direct competitors - Renault Kwid and Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 - are offered in AMT versions.
The air-conditioner vents and the horn pad have been given silver finish, which add a bit of a contrast to the otherwise blackened out interior. And to top it all, another little trinket that distinguishes the redi-GO 1.0L form the previous 0.8 L car is the '1.0' logo on the boot lid.
