Maneuvering through roads in the Indian subcontinent is a herculean task. It is here, that you would be able to witness people unmindful of the existence of zebra crossings and traffic lights. Add to it, ignorant fellows who are least bothered by the fact that they are answerable to and have to cooperate with fellow individuals behind the wheel. Driving on urban roads is a Great Circus of sorts, as people are often of the opinion that they are solitary drivers, who can manipulate these roads to their heart’s content.
On the other hand, even the roads in urban landscapes are in a dismal state as more often than not, a subtle task such as the construction of roads to map a better connectivity for a city or country’s citizens is synonymous to a money-minting game for the contractors entrusted with the task.
Not more than a couple of days back, I was on the lookout for spacing out my old Zen and finding a replacement for it when I came across the feature-rich redi-GO which is on the lookout for a spectacular launch from the house of Datsun. Extensive research work has fueled such a creation from Datsun and as of now, it is scoring high on my Dream Vehicle checklist.
If I were to elucidate the most alluring three features which prompt me to go ahead and bring home this beauty, they would be as listed below:
The first feature which caught my eye instantaneously was the 5-Speed Manual Transmission, which ensures an unparalleled smoothness while you effortlessly crack the Urban Roads riddle. The seamless shift empowers me with a precision, thus enabling me to zip through Indian roads.
The second being a superior centralized air-conditioning, given the grueling and unbearable temperatures in our country, year after year, thanks to Global Warming, which needs no introduction. Its large 89 CC aluminum compressor assembly provides a high cooling capacity, which keeps the car as well as myself and my family cool and jolly while on the wheel.
The third one which enables me to take the vehicle for a spin on my dream highway – Yamuna Expressway – all the way to the Taj is an i-SAT (Intelligent Spark Automated Technology) Engine at the core of redi-GO which intelligently adjusts spark timing in response to fuel quality and power requirement, paralleling a knocking-free and smooth ride. Coupled with an excellent 799cc engine which is able to provide an impressive fuel economy of 25.17 km/L, Datsun redi-GO weighs minimum on my wallet and maximum on performance and memorable long-drives.
I’m sure that after reading through this checklist, you too would support my decision of calling this offering from Datsun my own, as these three features along with redi-GO’s stylish striking appeal with a silver finish, lean, dynamic silhouette and accentuation by sophisticated dark & light Gereige coordination adds to the entire package that the redi-GO from Datsun is, in itself.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
