Datsun Redi-Go: India-only hatch has plenty of ground clearance

The new Datsun Redi-Go hatch has been designed specifically for India, with a tax friendly body and a high riding suspension to deal with the country’s rough roads.

Based on the Common Module Family (CMF-A) architecture shared with partner Renault, the Redi-Go has a tall and small hatchback body that fits into the lowest taxation class in India.

Ground clearance is rated at 185mm (7.3-in) that should be able to cope with the rough roads in India’s countryside and outer suburbs. Under the hood there’s a 800cc 3-cylinder gas engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

The Datsun Redi-Go goes on sale in India during the second half of 2016.
