The Datsun Redigo's tiny footprint along with its light controls and high seating make it a breeze to drive around town. In addition, its petrol engine packs adequate pep and returns good fuel economy too. And to top it off, it looks rather distinctive.
Still, glaringly evident cost-cutting measures adversely affect its appeal.
In isolation, the Redigo is a sorted budget car that has a lot going for it. However, with the can't-go-wrong Alto 800 on one side and the hugely appealing Renault Kwid on the other, this Datsun doesn't feel like it has a card strong enough to trump either of them in any way. It is a unique and interesting proposition but it just isn't the best one out there.
