No offence to Datsun, but finding this claim of 10K bookings a little hard to believe. Quite surprising that a relatively unknown brand with a poor history can rack up 10K bookings in such a short time.

Wonder if it is a rebound effect where people who have booked the Kwid are switching over due to the long wait periods.

Have spotted one in Hyderabad. The front face looks good but looking at the rear it looks bit out of shape. Also the expose metal inside can unhappy some buyers when other cars in this segment have not gone for this type of cost cutting. Wondering how much Datsun has saved by not providing plastic panels over some of the places inside.

Datsun must be hoping to sell a million Redigos. In that case, saving even Rs 100 by not providing full plastic panel would amount to Rs 100 million. They may have thought this way. Next, they are also offering various customizable kits according to one's taste. But they should know that customers happily shell out a few thousands more for a better fit and finish like that of Hyundai.

My native is a small town and I managed to see 2-3 Redigos yesterday when I was waiting for the bus (10-15 mins) - was definitely surprising to me. The car is definitely chic and coupled with a low price, should be attracting enough attention. I am not sure metros are so welcoming for the brand / product though.

Datsun Redi-GO Sport teased ahead of September 29 debut

Datsun India has teased a special edition model of the Redi-GO hatchback, christened as the Redi-GO Sport. The teaser image shows certain cosmetic updates on the outside, though nothing is yet known about changes inside the cabin. It is expected to be launched on September 29.

The teaser image shows that the Redi-GO Sport will get black racing stripes on the hood, which will likely continue onto the roof and rear hatch. The wheel covers have also been blacked out. The lower part of the bumper and the front grille bezel have been given a black finish as well. Presence of LED DRLs on the model in the teased image suggest that the Redi-GO Sport edition will be based on the top-end S-trim. There might be some added equipment inside the cabin.

No mechanical changes will be made to the Datsun Redi-GO Sport edition, and it will continue to be powered by the 799 cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that churns out 53 BHP and 72 Nm of torque. This engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Datsun would be well-advised not to come out with such gimmicky stickered editions, and instead add stuff of real value to the regular variants, such as:
  • Standard driver airbag & seatbelt pre-tensioners across the range
  • Retractable rear seatbelts across the range
  • Central/remote locking
  • Front fog lamps
  • Brighter/higher quality LED DRLs
  • Manual day & night IRVM
  • Internally adjustable ORVMs
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Better overall insulation
  • 68 PS 1.0 litre twin-cam SCe engine option
The Redi-GO looks like a smart tall boy hatchback on the road. It's a neat, sharp design, doesn't look bad at all, and appears more like a car in the class of the Wagon-R or (the erstwhile) Zen Estilo. It's GC of 185mm is also a big advantage.

Datsun only have to make small changes and add some crucial missing features to make this car a reasonable success.

At the price point it is sold, it is a much better option than TATA NANO.
Especially this new stickered Sporty version, hope it carries that theme to the interiors, since it badly needs that.

I have seen only a single RediGO on road since its launch here in Hyderabad but when I take a look at the TeamBHP thread for sales(read:factory despatch) numbers, I see that the RediGO is doing reasonably well.3000+ units per month is Eon/TUV/Amaze territory. I see a lot of these cars(new) on road but not the rediGo.

It's definitely doing well somewhere and small towns maybe the answer. The sticker jobs maybe a response to make it appealing to the urban youth. I see a few who bought the swift with those hideous decals which they call 'sport edition' or something, so why not this.

Datsun India has launched the Redi-GO "Sport" edition at a price of Rs 3.49 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi.

Mechanically unchanged from the regular Redi-GO model, the "Sport" edition gets body decals and all-black interiors with contrasting red inserts, and some added equipment such as a driver airbag, a Bluetooth-based HU, parking sensors, LED DRLs up front, a rear spoiler and a keyless entry system.

The special-edition of the Redigo features a sportier exterior, as hinted in the teaser image that the carmaker had released a few days ago.

Major changes are racing stripes on the body, a roof mounted spoiler and red accents on the grille and blacked-out hub-caps. The grille also gets a gunmetal finish. It’s worth noting that alloy-wheels are still not on offer.

The car now gets an all-black interior with red contrast stitching and red inserts across the cabin.

Based on the top S trim, the limited edition Redigo Sport gets additional equipment such as remote keyless entry, Bluetooth phone compatibility, rear parking sensors and LED daytime running lamps. In terms of safety, the car comes equipped with a driver airbag.

The Redigo Sport is available in three exterior colour options – grey, white and red.
