new-again Datsun brand has just unveiled its first concept car at the Delhi Auto Expo 2014. Named the Datsun redi-GO Concept, it previews how the company’s mini crossover would look like, if it ever decides to build one.
For now though, the redi-GO is just a styling exploration, combining a
compact five-door hatchback’s practicality with a rugged SUV stance. It
has very short overhangs, paired to a crossover-style raised body with
rising twin character lines running across the sides.
Modern LED daytime running lights and taillamps adorn the cheeky
looking car, while Datsun’s large signature “D-cut grille” dominate the
front end. There’s no sunroof to be found – the blacked-out roof with
its distinctive tessellated pattern showcases a future personalisation
Those dark chrome wheels are only 15-inch items, which goes to show how
tiny this car is. Datsun, however, claims that it offers ample interior
space with a 2,350 mm-long wheelbase. The increased ride-height,
meanwhile, allows it to cope with challenging road surfaces, while
giving the driver a commanding view of the surroundings.
