Datsun’s Redi-go range has been out a while and has been quite successful in Datsun India portfolio. Now reports in Autocar India suggest that Datsun will launch the AMT version of the recently launched Redi-go 1.0 litre in the end of January 2018, and is likely to share its 5-speed Automated-Manual Transmission with its cousin the Renault Kwid 1.0 litre. Although Datsun is yet to confirm whether the RediGO one litre AMT will get the Kwid’s dashboard-mounted rotary controller or a traditional gear-stick. This considering that the Kwid’s gearbox misses the manual shift option that AMTs usually get, even the Kwid and Red-Go rival the alto AMT gets an AMT with a manual shifting option. Although we expect that the option on the Kwid is a lot cheaper than the Alto.

Datsun which is the newest entrant in the Indian Automotive industry has managed to strike a strong chord with its young Indian customer with the Redi-Go, which looks more contemporary and exciting than the competition. The Redi-Go which made it debut in 2016, with Renault sourced 800cc motor, was recently granted another lease on life with a more powerful 1.0-litre motor. While the RediGo continues to share its CMF-A platform with the likes of the Renault Kwid, Datsun went for a slightly taller design.

In terms of kit, expect things to stay the same on the Datsun RediGo AMT, the single-din infotainment system which is compatible with Bluetooth and the all-black theme to interiors is likely to be carried forward, although depending on the gearbox placement that Datsun decide on the centre console might get a bit of an alteration.

This means that we could expect the Datsun Red-Go 1.0 litre AMT to go on sale for about Rs 30,000 more than the manual gearbox option, meaning that the base Redi-GO AMT should sell at an estimated 3.9 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) with the top model breaching the four lakh mark at 4.10 lakh.
