Datsun launches redi-GO AMT in India for INR 3.80 lakh

Written by Parichay Malvankar

Datsun has announced the pricing of their redi-GO hatchback now with an AMT gearbox. Dubbed as the Datsun redi-GO Smart Drive Auto, it has been priced at an introductory price tag of INR 3,80,600 (ex-showroom). The car will be available for bookings and deliveries from now.

Datsun claims that the redi-GO Smart Drive Auto features a new Dual-Driving Mode & Rush Hour Mode to provide better driving convenience within the city, and has the best in class ground clearance of 185mm along with a roomy cabin. Here Dual-Driving Mode doesn’t mean any button that you have to press to change how the engine responds, but, it is simply switching from automated AMT transmission to manually shifting the gears using the stick. Rush Hour Mode offers a creep function in which you can simply release the brake lever and the car will crawl at speeds up to 5~6 kmph for in-city bumper-to-bumper traffic.

With this variant, Datsun is also introducing a new audio system with Bluetooth functionality. This will be available on all redi-GO T(O) & S variants.

The AMT gearbox is available only on the 1.0L, 3-cylinder, iSAT petrol motor. Other features include all-black interiors, central locking, remote key & 5 colour options.
