The Datsun Redi-Go was launched in June this year. Since its launch, the Redi Go has been busy establishing a foot hold in the highly competitive entry-level car market of India. In a bid to attract some more car buyers during the festive season, Datsun India launched a limited edition Datsun Redi Go Sport model. Initially, the Redi GO Sport’s run was to be restricted to 1000 units. However, citing higher than anticipated demand, Datsun India will add another 800 units taking the total up to 1800. Read on to find out about the new limited edition Datsun Redi Go Sport.
The Datsun Redi-Go range in India starts from Rs 2.39 Lakh. However, the limited edition Sports model is available only in the top-end S trim. It is being produced at Nissan’s production plant in South India. Datsun‘s latest car has been attracting many buyers away from the likes of Maruti Alto, Hyundai Eon and Renault Kwid. We drove the Redi Go earlier this year and you can check our test drive review HERE.
Limited Edition Datsun Redi Go Sport Price
The Redi Go Sport is based on the top-end S model. Hence, it commands a premium over the regular model. The addition of new features has lead to a price hike. The Redi Go Sport costs Rs 3.49 Lakh (Ex Showroom, New Delhi). Olympian Sakshi Malik, who was present at the launch, received the keys to the Datsun RediGO making her the first customer in India.

“The Datsun redi-GO SPORT version has generated more demand than anticipated and we are happy to announce that the initially planned 1,000 units have been sold out in less than a month. To meet the high demand and delight our customers, we are announcing an increase in production of the car with a further 800 units”, said Arun Malhotra, Managing Director, Nissan Motor India Pvt. Ltd. (NMIPL).

Datsun Redi Go Sport Exterior Design Review
The Redi Go Sport sports a handful of additions for enhanced sportiness quotient. Bits like black-painted wheel caps and ORVM housings go well with the red exterior colour. Also, the black grille has red accents for that touch of classiness. Even the black-painted front splitter, together with LED DRLs, goes on to add some oomph. The Sport theme seems to work well with the car’s slightly edgy design.
The highlight, however, has to be the black racing stripes. There’s a stripe that runs thru the hood. We are not sure but the limited edition Datsun Redi Sport could get a black roof too. There’s also another racing stripe running across the side profile.

Datsun Redi Go Sport Interior
The interior of limited edition Datsun Redi Go Sport gets an all black theme. In terms of design, the cabin remains the same. The highlight has to be the Bluetooth audio system.
The Redi Go comes with a slightly unconventionally-styled dashboard. Unlike the Go, the Redi Go gets a covered glove compartment. It also gets many fancy bits like a stylish instrument cluster. The Redi Go offers acres of space for an entry-level car. 4 adults can sit comfortably here. Redi Go is far more spacious than models like the Alto.
