The all-new Datsun Redi-GO 1.0 has been launched in India at Rs 3.57 lakhs (ex-showroom All India). Available in just two trims – T(O) and S – the A-segment hatchback gets a bigger 1.0-litre engine than the Renault Kwid 1.0.

On the outside, this powerful variant of the Redi-Go gets a 1.0 insignia slapped on the boot lid. Apart from it, there are no telltale signs differentiating it from its 800cc brethren. It carries all the design elements of the tall-boy hatch including a meshed hexagonal grille, wedged headlamps, creased bumpers with faux skid plate, boomerang-shaped tail lights and a protruding tailgate. There are five exterior colours to choose from. Step inside, and you can notice the spacious cabin, both at the front and back. Both the variants gets a piano black finish for the centre console, fabric seats, central locking, 2-DIN music system and power windows. However, safety features like daytime running lamps and driver airbags are exclusive to the more expensive S trim.

Under the tiny bonnet is the same 999cc, three-cylinder motor, producing 68bhp of power and 91Nm of torque, which does duty in the Renault Kwid 1.0. The motor is mated to a five-speed manual transmission for the time being, but we could expect Datsun to offer the Redi-Go 1.0-litre with an AMT a few months down the line.

The Datsun Redi-Go 1.0 faces stiff competition from the likes of Hyundai Eon 1.0, Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and Renault Kwid 1.0.
