The Datsun redi-GO 1.0L has gone on sale in India today we will be bringing you all the live updates from the launch here. We drove the car early this month and have shared a great deal information of the redi-GO's features and offerings even what we expect the price to be. The new Datsun redi-GO 1-litre variant's key rivals are the Renault Kwid 1.0L and the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and we have told how they compare against each other on paper, both the Kwid 1-litre and the Alto K10. Bookings are already underway for ₹ 10,000 in Datsun showrooms across India.

Visually the upcoming redi-GO 1-litre variant remains identical to the regular redi-GO hatchback with its tall boy stance, sculpted profile and bold character lines. The car comes with the same halogen headlamps and bumper-mounted LED daytime running lights. So, the only distinguishing factor is the '1.0' badge at the rear.

Datsun redi-GO 1.0L Vs Maruti Suzuki Alto K10
The Datsun redi-GO 1.0L comes with the same quirky design with bold lines and a muscular stance. The bold lines and muscular stance gives the car a more futuristic look and possibly the best-looking car in its space.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto K10, on the other hand, is the oldest one among its competitors and possibly the least attractive one as well. The last time the car received a design or styling update was in 2012, so the car is a bit dated in comparison.

Engine Details
The engine is the same 999cc 3-cylinder petrol motor used in Renault Kwid 1.0L but the engineers at Datsun have worked on it to improve power delivery. They call it the 'i-SAT' a.k.a.

The output is the same at 67 bhp and a peak torque of 91 Nm, but the fuel efficiency has slightly improved, offering a mileage of 22.5 kmpl compared to the Kwid 1.0L, which returns 22.04 kmpl.
