Datsun will launch its Redigo with the 1.0 engine on the 26th of this month and bookings have already started. Customers can pre-book their Datsun Redigo 1.0L with a fully refundable down payment of INR 10,000 at Nissan and Datsun dealerships. The Redigo 1.0 makes 67 bhp and 91Nm with an official mileage of 22.5 kmpl. The 1.0 Redigo will come only on the top two trim levels with the S and T(o).
The top-end trim for example has features like DRL, key less entry etc. Datsun also promises low ownership costs with attractively priced service packages. It is clear with the 1.0, Datsun is trying hard and we think it would be the best selling car in the range, considering we do not expect a big premium over its lesser powered sibling. Unlike the Kwid, the Redigo1.0 will have a 5-speed manual as of now with an AMT expected later. The Redigo continues to have its crossover design as its main highlight along with its 185mm ground clearance. With the 1.0, we think, it does make this car more appealing.
