The entry-level small-car, 2020 BS6 Datsun Redi-Go now gets a cleaner set of powertrains and, apart from the basic variant, has become a little more expensive than the BS4 version. Let’s have a closer look at this Maruti Suzuki Alto rival.

Exterior Design
The front design gets a major makeover as the Datsun hatchback sports a larger front grille finished in all-black, which hosts the blue-and-chrome Datsun logo right in the centre. The front grille gets a bold, octagonal chrome embellishment for add aggression. One of the other prominent changes is the massive L-shaped LED DRLs (daytime running lights) running from the top to the bottom of the front bumper, while a set of restyled headlamp clusters now get silver highlights. And even a pair of LED fog lamps, which are the first in the segment.

The side profile picture of the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go doesn’t seem to have changed much apart from the chrome ‘Datsun’ badging on the front fender, 14-inch wheels donning new dual-tone wheel-caps, and the manually folding mirrors (ORVMs). There’s even a spoiler at the roof to add a dash of sportiness, but the shape of the tail lamps haven’t been changed. As visible, it retains the tall body styling as before. Most of these features are offered only in higher variants of the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go and helps the affordable hatchback appear more premium than before.

Interior and Cabin
Changes can also be seen in the cabin, as the one in the BS4 Datsun Redi-Go looked dated and under-equipped. To make the interior more appealing the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go comes with a restyled dashboard with dual-tone (Piano Black and Silver Bezel) finish, and the front door panels come with fabric panels. Even the circular a-c vents have been replaced by a more trendy looking angular ones. More importantly, it borrows the eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system from the Renault Triber, which has been given an octagonal housing, a shape also seen on the front grille.

Features

Unlike the out-going model, Datsun India have thankfully decided to load the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go with a good number of features. These include the above mentioned eight-inch touchscreen that would boast of Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and even voice recognition. Not to mention Bluetooth connectivity for your smartphones. The hatchback also offers a dual-tone instrument cluster, internally adjustable mirrors and a rearview camera. However, the touchscreen is only available in the top-end T (O) variant while the lower trims have to make do with a more basic audio system. Interestingly, the entry-level variant does not come with an air-conditioning system nor a power-steering but comes with a simple air blower as standard.

Engine
Obviously, the big change on the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go is the cleaner emission engines. As before, the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go is offered in two engine options – the entry-level 799-cc three-cylinder unit which continues to produce 54 hp at 5,600 rpm and 72 Nm at 4,250 rpm, like the BS4 version. It comes mated with a five-speed manual gearbox and has a claimed fuel economy of 20.7 km/l. While the 1.0-litre unit makes 68 hp at 5,500 rpm and 91 Nm of torque at 4,250 revs and is offered with a five-speed manual gearbox or an AMT option, promising to stretch a litre of petrol for 21.7 km.

Safety
Nissan’s budget brand – Datsun has also improved the safety features by including dual front airbags (only in the top-spec variant), the mandatory high-speed warning, a seatbelt reminder, and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

Price
The pricing of the BS6 Datsun Redi-Go is about Rs 20,000 to Rs 50,000 more expensive than the BS4 version, apart from the entry-level 0.8-litre ‘D’ variant which continues to be priced at Rs 2.83 lakh (ex-showroom). But as mentioned this is a barebone model without basic features like an a-c. The top-spec 0.8-litre T (O) costs Rs 4.16 lakh (ex-showroom). The peppier 1.0-litre begins at Rs 4.44 lakh (ex-showroom) while the 1.0-litre AMT is priced at Rs 4.77 lakh (ex-showroom). The pricing still remains competitive and the BS6 Datsun Redigo will continue to compete with Renault Kwid and Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and the very popular Maruti Suzuki Alto.
