Datsun Redi-go facelift leaked Photos
It will come with exterior updates to the exterior with brand new interior design and more features than before.
The exterior image of the car is clear that the company has made many major changes in its front design.
The biggest change is seen in the form of L-Aakar’s new Day-Time Running Lamps (DRLs) which are quite dominating and attract attention first. Below these DRLs are given LED fog lamps which is a segment first feature.
The grille of the car is also new and bigger than before. More chrome finishing has been given around it. These new headlights are also thinner and sharper styling to give the car a smart look.
The design of these headlamps looks similar to the Nissan Kicks SUV. Additionally, the bumper of the car has also been redesigned by the company.
Looking at it from the side, you will find that the company has retained its tall boy design and has given it a new sharp character line that starts from the fender to the rear. If the fender has come out, then tell that now the “Datsun” badging will also be available on it.
Also, the company has now given the redesigned body color ORVM (Outside Rear View Mirror) and dual tone wheel covers that look like machine cut alloy wheels.
No photos have been revealed of the rear at the moment. But it is expected that the new rear bumper and its taillamps can also use LED inserts. In the photo above you can see the roof mounted rear spoiler.
It is likely that it will be available as accessories only.
Datsun has also offered two new exterior paint colors: Blue and Brown with Redi-Go. Among these, you can see blue color in the photo.
Redi-Go facelift with both these colors will be available in 6 colors in total.
Interior and features
The interior of Datsun Redi-Go has been given a completely new look by the company. The company has given a completely new design dashboard in it which looks quite attractive.
The all-black dashboard has silver highlights on the center-left (left) portion, instrument console casing, steering wheel and center console tunnel giving it a premium touch.
The car’s center console is inspired by the Reno Kwid. It will now get an 8-inch touchscreen in place of the old 2-din music system, which will be equipped with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
According to leaked information, it will also get features like reverse camera, fabric treatment on the door pads and retractable seat belts in the rear. Not only this, now it will also get manually adjustable ORVM, double tone fabric seats and passenger side airbags. In addition, like the current model, it will continue to receive safety features such as driver side airbags, electronic brake force distribution (EBD) with anti-lock braking system (ABS), rear perking sensors, seat belt reminder and high speed alert system.
Like the BS4 model, the 2020 Redi-Go facelift will continue to get 0.8-liter petrol (54 BSP / 72 newton-meter) and 1.0-liter (68 BHP / 91 newton-meter) petrol engines.
However, these will be offered by upgrading to BS6 emission norms. It is expected that this update will not affect the engine configuration of the car.
A 5-speed manual gearbox will be standard with both engines. At the same time, the option of AMT (automatic-manual transmission) with its 1.0 liter engine will also continue to be available.
The new 2020 Redi-Go car will come in four variants: D, A, T and T (O). The company will discontinue its existing S variant.
redi- Go’s BS4 model is priced from Rs 2.79 lakh to Rs 4.37 lakh ex showroom in Delhi.
It is expected that after the facelift update, its prices can increase from Rs 10,000 to Rs 30,000. After the launch, it will continue to compete in the Indian market with Maruti Suzuki Alto and Renault Kwid.
