Introducing the all new Datsun redi-GO

Datsun India appreciates that- it's not just health, employment or corruption-free society, but India’s youth deserve a machine that strengthens their sense of freedom, a machine that endows them with the confidence to go further, and that's the sole reason they have come up with Datsun redi-GO, an one of its kind hotchpotch of compact crossover and urban hatchback, a cutting edge machine to epitomize ultimate style, comfort and state of the art Japanese engineering! There already has been enough unnecessary (or, mildly necessary) hype on issues like marital rape, punishment for juvenile rapists, forged educational qualification and so on, but now it is time to shift our focus on a headline that actually has some merit. In less than two months we'll be able to witness the revolutionary Datsun redi-GO in India. Oh wait, this paragraph is getting unduly lengthy. I've read somewhere that excessive lengthy paragraphs, lengthy sentences, sentences in passive voice and poor formatting are few among many things in a blog which piss off its genuine readers. You won't understand how difficult it is to draw traffic on to your blog... the blog-o-sphere is just too saturated!

As I haven't been face to metal-face yet with Datsun redi-GO I do not know how it is really going to be like in the real world (remember those old Balboa's words- “The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it”?). I do not know what exactly its manufacturer intended while designing this urban cross. If you are looking for luxury, I can tell you Datsun redi-GO won't over-pamper you. But what this car does have are a very particular set of features, features it acquired over a very long span of research and development, features which make Datsun redi-GO a nightmare for cars of other manufacturers belonging to the same segment. I'm blind-assuming that you are not familiar with the 'Taken' series. So, I will talk about three of its thousand myriad features which are infuriating my machine lust and driving me crazy to to get a hold of Datsun redi-GO.

The official website says that the air conditioner of Datsun redi-GO has been optimized for eight months (in a year of course!) of Indian summer weather and its precisely measured air circulation ensures that the passengers are cozy inside. I sweat more than most of you. Actually it is familial for me. Many times my clothes resemble more like used tampons. Doesn't matter if the car has wobbly set of suspensions or swallows oil like a holed jerrycan, the first thing it should have is an effective air conditioning.

Its 0.8L mammoth three-cylinder i-SAT (Intelligent Spark Automated Technology) engine delivers a beastly power of 54 Ps at 5678 RPM and an insane torque of 72 Nm at 4388 RPM. Probably you know I'm a travel enthusiast and love hills. You do the mathematics and realize how conveniently I can drive uphill on this Datsun redi-GO. It should as smooth as walking on ice floor with a pair of old bathroom slipper.

The heightened stance on the Datsun redi-GO is another eye candy for me. If I sit high, I can see clearer, or at least I can feel like God and give that “give a damn” stare to my fellow lesser mortals on the street. You got to experience this my friend. Everything can't be explained on paper.

I would like to test a lime green Datsun redi-GO on the Manali-Leh route. I want to test it for power, reliability, wow-factor and definitely mileage. I want to show its prospective critics that an affordable urban cross can be equally versatile like any expensive SUV if it's built by a reputed company such as Datsun.

Blues is inevitable, especially when it is centered around urban driving. There's so much chaos and randomness around us that we lose faith, direction and purpose. Helpless we look up for God, but as you know He's a busy man and seldom found. Datsun redi-GO will fill up that void and make us act more sane. I know this concept is not so easy to absorb. That's why I'll write another article regarding this involving more of metaphysics.

Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
