Ever since its return in the year 2013, Datsun has stirred the Indian market with the amazing cars Go and Go+. With the Datsun redi-Go, a unique small urban cross; the brand has deemed to compete with the most popular brands like Maruti, Renault as well as Hyundai. However, unlike its previous successors, this particular vehicle is not that high in price, as it is expected that it will be around 2.5-3.5 lakhs, thereby arresting the attention of the higher middle-class people of the society.

Smaller cars are more functional than the bigger and lavish ones!
As a child, I always longer for a small car, instead of the bigger and highly comfortable ones like Scorpio or Innova. I found it much easier to drive and move about in the crowded urban roads. Especially during the festival seasons, the over-crowded lanes of Kolkata make it impossible for a person to drive home safely unless you are an expert driver with a lot of patience. The majority of the roads are blocked, and the thin lanes are full of autos, bikes, rickshaws and cycles; and even if you manage to enter there, you can never pass easily through it because the lanes are able to accommodate only a small vehicle at a time. Thus, I always thought that it is more functional to travel in a small car (if you too are not permitted to ride two-wheeler like me). Furthermore, these days majority of the families are relatively smaller in size, with three or four members, so one can easily fit in within a car like Datsun redi-Go and move across the city!

Stunning design and cutting edge features within your reach:
The very design of the car reflects its basic character, it is always ready to move. In terms of design and appearance, the redi-Go might appear to be the car, which is specially designed for Indian roads. However, the interior designing of the car is even more interesting, especially because of the budget at which the car is launched in the market. The cabin bears a neat finish, with ample space and the piano black trim on the center portion, is appealing. There are silver accents all around the vents and the dashboard too is carefully designed to make it even more exciting for the drivers. The frontal visibility and the airy cabin are the features which make it stand apart from the rest. Furthermore, the bottle or cup holders makes it cozier to travel.

In a nutshell, apparently the car seems the perfect option for the 4G generation, where people are crazy about speed, design, and connectivity. However, if I get a chance, I would like to try out this car in my hometown, Kolkata. Even though there has already been a test drive being organized, I would like to travel across the rough and thin lanes, to test the comfortability factors. There has been ample description of its speed and functionality, but I would like to try out the comfortabilty factors, before comparing it with Maruti or Renault.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross – Datsun redi-GO – the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
