Vacation 2016. It was a name of exhibition organised in Ahmedabad in the last week of May. It was a first of its kind exhibition. There were stalls of almost everything in that exhibition. From food to apparels to grocery to automobiles, there were stalls of almost everything. My cousin had also booked one stall in that exhibition. He had launched a new brand and he was promoting it through that stall. He has invited everyone in the family to visit his stall. Thus me and my uncle decided to visit his stall on the last Sunday of may. We decided to go early in the evening as uncle had some work at night. We reached at the ground where exhibition was held by 5:30 in the evening.
The theme of the exhibition was based on roman culture. It depicted Venice city of Rome. We entered the exhibition and started searching the way towards my cousin's stall. It was in S block. We started from A and we wanted to skip everything and go to S but there was no way out. It was organised in a such a way that you were not allowed to skip anything. Whether we like it or not we had to go through each and every stall. We crossed crowded A, B and C blocks then luckily from D block automobile section began. In that section dealers had bought whole block to promote their vehicles. Among them there was one stall which was highly crowded and that stall was of Datsun.
Datsun had launched new Redi-Go and its dealer was showcasing that in that exhibition. My uncle said "it is a new urban crossover" as we reached near Datsun's stall. "Come, let's have a look at it." My uncle went in that stall. I followed him. We went near that Redi-Go. First thing which impressed me was the design of Redi-Go. Redi-Go's Yukan design makes it very conventional. With its wide, robust stance gives you impressive room and a sporty attitude. We were moving around the car and we found out that it has smooth and sleek silhouette, lean and dynamic side character lines, modern yet functional driver oriented feel and stylish, sporty and practical instrument panel. We were so impressed by its design that we decided to take its test drive.
My uncle had one sedan and he was looking for a small car. So we called an executive and we asked him for its test drive. Unfortunately, the car for test drive was not available as it was not being launched yet but the executive there gave us the complete information about the car. He made us sit in the car to show us its comfort and interior features. Redi-Go has classy interiors. While I sat in the car, I noticed one unique thing. There was a shift indicator in its digital meter. It shows the ideal time to shift for maximum efficiency and performance. Apart from that it is handy feature for the new drivers. It will help them a lot. Along with seating comfort, driving comfort has also become important these days.
Driving big cars in the city is a big headache that's why my uncle was looking for a small car. We told this thing to that executive and on that he described one more important feature of Redi-GO. Small turning radius. Compact design of Redi-Go provides the ultimate manoeuvrability. Thus it make a full turn around just 4.7 metre turning radius. This feature is really handy when you are in traffic and find yourself in tight spot. Apart from that company claims it's average to be 25 kmpl. You need this much average when you are driving in the city. "This car has all the potential to take away your urban driving blues." Executive mentioned at the end of his speech. "I looks good but I want to test it on highway as well as on the city roads before booking it." My uncle said to the executive before leaving the stall. We both were impressed by the car as we left the stall. We visited my cousin's stall and came back.
According to me it is Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.
