Japanese carmaker Datsun has up to date the security package of its entry-level providing in India, the Redigo. The hatchback now comes geared up with ABS as normal throughout all variants.
Datsun has up to date the Redigo with the security characteristic to be able to meet the necessary ABS norm for autos that kicks in on April 1, 2019. Aside from the anti-lock braking system, all variants of the Redigo get security package like three-point seatbelts on 4 seats (the rear center seat will get a two-point unit), rear door baby security lock and a rear cease lamp. The highest-spec S trim will get added security advantages like a driver’s airbag, distant central locking and LED daytime working lamps. Whereas the bottom variant misses out on an engine immobiliser, all different trims have it normal.
Curiously, Datsun has chosen to not equip the Redigo with an airbag, pace alert system, seatbelt reminder system and rear parking sensors throughout all variants as normal in order that the hatchback would conform to norms that may start from July 1, 2019. We will solely assume that Datsun will replace the Redigo as soon as once more earlier than the aforementioned date.
In any other case, the Redigo stays mechanically unchanged. It continues to be powered by a 54hp, 799cc three-cylinder petrol engine that’s mated to a 5-speed guide gearbox. There’s a bigger 68hp, 1.Zero-litre engine possibility too that comes mated to both a 5-speed guide or AMT gearbox.
With the added characteristic, costs of the Datsun Redigo are anticipated to go up by Rs three,000-Four,000 relying on the variant. Within the entry-level hatchback section, the Datsun Redigo takes on the likes of the Renault Kwid and Maruti Suzuki’s Alto 800 and Alto K10.
