Specs comparison: Datsun redi-Go vs Alto 800 vs Renault Kwid

Entry level cars may have lower prices tags but they consumes the highest amount of market share than any other segment. Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 was ruling the segment single handedly until the game changer Renault Kwid made an entry. The effect of Kwid was quite visible in the decreasing numbers of sales for Alto 800. Now to trouble the Indian manufacturer more, Renault’s cousin brand Nissan has introduced their player in the segment under the Datsun brand, redi-GO.

Even though redi-GO is based on Kwid’s platform, from nowhere it looks like the Kwid. Infact redi-Go looks more modern, stylish and funky than it’s cousin. While Alto have simple and traditional exteriro design, Kwid made a muscular statement and became popular instantly. redi-Go here goes even further and looks much more sportier, modern and stylish than the other too and that will definitely be a big boost to attract young generation of the country.
