Datsun redi-GO is sleek and appealing. This n Datsun’s newest kid on the block is made in India made for India car. It is India’s first Urban-cross car. It is a car which takes the best features of a crossover. It just doesn’t stop at that it mixes them with all the significant attributes of the urban hatchback. It is roomy. I am six feet tall, so the height of the car matters the most to me. Fortunately Datsun redi-GO is tall unlike its other competitors. One of the major attractions of Datsun redi-GO is the mileage it offers 25.7 km per litre. Can you believe it? I would like to test it for this feature.
Well driving cars in Indian cities is nothing but a nightmare. But is there any other alternative? The answer is obviously no. Why is driving the car so difficult in India. Well there are many reasons. The first and foremost is that people do not follow traffic rules. Anything will come from any side and jump into the middle of the road. It may be a two-wheeler, another car coming in the wrong direction, a cycling kid or even a cow or a dog. Plus there are no lanes reserved for driving. There are no footpaths for pedestrians. Even if there are footpaths they are either encroached or the squalor upon it forces the pedestrians to walk on the roads. So driving on Indian roads is very difficult.
This the reason if given a chance I would like to test drive Datsun redi-GO on one of the most congested cities in the world – Varanasi. As stated earlier while driving on the Indian roads you can not take your foot away from the brakes. I would like to test how efficiently the brakes of Datsun redi-GO apply. This is one of the features which is most important while driving, particularly while driving on the Indian streets.
The second feature which I would like to test would be gear shift. When you are driving on the heavily congested streets of Varanasi, you will require to frequently change the gears. I would like to see the ease with which the gears shift. Does the engine make loud noise, is the gear shift smooth are some of my concerns, which I would like to put to test. Again Varanasi is not just about the congested streets. It has a highway as well. So I would like to test Datsun redi-GO on the highway to see how is the gear transition when the car is running in speed on the highway.
Power steering is a blessing. I would like to test this feature on the streets of Varanasi where it is very difficult to drive. You will have to maneuverer amidst the parked vehicles, humans, cows and God knows what more. Power steering is easy at the same time it is very sensitive. So I would like to test this feature as well. I am sure given the lineage of Datsun redi-GO it will not disappoint me.
Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
