The New Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto


I love challenging myself— it’s satisfying I guess. Like in a puzzle, the satisfaction comes from the “A-ha!” moment, when all the pieces fit– challenges bring along the “I did it” kind of sensation. I sort of pine for this feeling; it fills in as an impetus – pushing me to move out of the comfort zone.  Challenges in my life aren’t limited to traveling and exploring the remotest destinations; they extend to other individual fronts as well. Choosing to pursue my dreams at one point in time was a challenge, yet then ‘I did it’.

While I am out of the comfort zone– I am just out –but as soon as I am back to the safe area, I ensure all of that– that belongs to me—makes up/ compensates for the tiresome times. I must tell you; I have been sailing to showrooms on most weekends test driving cars to find ‘the One’ which fulfils my smooth sailing fantasies.

I prefer not to be a homer, and my present vehicle is an aggregate sham. Merely a week ago, while I was looking the web for auto choices, a friend strolled in, and after a long stare on my mac screen, he informed me about Datsun’s test drive challenge #TheBetterAMT

#TheBetterAMT is an open challenge for the people to come and take a test drive of the new Datsun redi – GO Smart Drive Auto and experience the best-in-class features. If within seven days of welcoming the challenge, the people buy a competitor’s car, Datsun will give them benefits worth Rs. 5000.

After my friend finished speaking, I checked my date-book, and as I saw no duties set for the day, so we headed to take a test drive!

My Experience with Datsun Redi-Go

The lines and looks of the Datsun redi-GO are impeccable like a Victoria Secret’s showstopper. The front end is indeed one of most attractive in the section, with a hexagonal grille and large headlamps. Under the hood, redi-GO features an 1.0L engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. Power is derived from a 1.0L, three-cylinder iSAT petrol engine tuned to produce 53bhp at 5678rpm and 72Nm at 4386rpm.

Automated Transmission: The demand for automatics has grown by leaps and bounds owing to heavy city traffic. I have seen automated transmission functionality available in premium cars in foreign nations. (taxies) Here in India, you have to pay a heavy amount to afford such luxury.  Thus Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto is significantly ahead in this highly competitive entry-level hatchback segment. Transmission is easy to use with a single automatic and a manual drive mode.

Dual Driving Mode: Whether you spend most of your drive time exploring urban boulevards or fueling through tough earth, it all doesn’t really matter as Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto is designed to thrive in the rough.  Dual driving mode incorporated under the hood allows you to enjoy complete flexibility of switching between automated and manual modes, when you need more torque in conditions such as over-taking or up-hill.

Rush Hour Mode: This one helps to keep the vehicle moving at a slow pace (5-6 km/h) in bumper-to-bumper traffic without pressing the accelerator pedal.

On the inside, Datsun has created an interior to rival many.  It’s very quite inside, has a sporty character, agile handling, and best part, I had ample legroom to stretch out. Additionally, Datsun redi – GO Smart Drive Auto has the best air conditioning system in the segment. Five minutes in the car, and you will feel transported to Mussorie. Trust me on this—regardless of whether you are 5 passengers riding in 45 degrees heat on the roadway, none would have the capacity to grumble about the air conditioner! It’s that powerful and effective.

Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto combines style, dynamics and comfort in one cohesive package. The suspension itself is rather cushy, and it gave me feels as if I am driving on a cloud, with road imperfections barely noticeable. Indeed the ride quality is extremely good by the segment standards. The car handles broken roads with ease owing to the best-in-class ground clearance of 185mm. I am sure the brilliant handling will have drivers dreaming of twisty roads like in the mountains.

Best-in-class Cabin Space: The cabin is near silent on the highway so you can enjoy the incredible sound system while 100s of miles go under the auto. Thanks to ever-increasing commute times, Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto features practically all the excitement and amenities you would expect from your living room. The Bluetooth Audio System with Hands-free calling delivers crisp, balanced sound and a surprising thump from the subwoofer. A top pick for audiophiles!


redi-GO is a dapper looking hatchback, and that is what suits the millennial! I am off this challenge as I am aware I cannot win over this one. This nut is unbreakable. With redi-GO, Datsun has delivered a classic! Take the test ride, and you will know! Follow my lead and share your experience with the hashtag #AutomaticTestDriveChallenge.
