Now, we've already driven the manual transmission variant of the redi-Go 1-litre and told you all about it. The AMT will also be available with the more powerful Intelligent Spark Automated Technology (iSAT) three cylinder engine.
On the features front, we do not expect to see any changes and the Datsun redi-GO AMT will continue to come with the existing offering like the LED daytime running lights, all-black cabin, sporty red accents for the seats, silver finish on the AC vents and the horn pad. The Datsun redi-GO 1.0 gets a regular CD player, USB (which does not charge your phone) AUX-In and no Bluetooth. Driver side airbag is offered as optional on the top-end trim.
Datsun offers the 1-litre engine only with the T(O) and S variants, so we expect the AMT unit to be offered with these two variants only. As for pricing with expect to see a premium of ₹ 25,000 to ₹ 30,000 depending on the asking price of the variant chosen.
