Datsun Redi-Go Sport received some cosmetic updates and few extra features over regular model
Datsun has launched Redi-Go Sport ahead of festive season, which sports some cosmetic updates like racing stripes, new colour for front grille and wheels. Some interior features have been introduced as well. The car is launched as a limited edition model and is expected to boost the Redi-Go’s sales in the country during festive season.
Redi-Go entered the highly competitive entry level car segment in India, earlier this year in June. In short span, Redi-Go grabbed attention immediately, and since launch it has sold more than 10,000 units. Not only that, this car has been attracting several buyers away from Maruti Suzuki Alto 800, Hyundai Eon and even Renault Kwid as well.
The car is a perfect urban commuter for those, who are on tight budget. Datsun seems to be pretty overwhelmed by the positive response of the car, which is why it launched a sportier version in the form of Redi-Go Sport. Here, we take a close look at the Datsun Redi-Go Sport:
