Snapshot: CarToq profiles ten interesting cars from DC Design, an Indian design and car custom studio that is run by Dilip Chhabria, an automotive journalist turned auto designer.

DC Custom Ford EcoSport

The Ford EcoSport customized by DC Design comes with a redesigned front end with relocated head lamps, a new bumper and grille. On the inside, the crossover’s 5 seat layout is traded for a beige leather wrapped 4 seat layout while infotainment and other creature comforts are added.

DC Toyota Innova

The Innova, India’s top selling 7 seat MPV isn’t a looker by a long shot. DC Design has given the MPV an aesthetic makeover and while at it, has refurbished the interiors. The DC Innova is a four seater that adds two airline-like recliner seats and a comprehensive infotainment package at the rear. The driver and front passenger seat also see a refurbishment, along with revised interior trims.

DC Mahindra XUV500

The DC Mahindra XUV500 would’ve been a sleeper if not for the reprofiled front bumper. The real action though, lies in the innards of this Mahindra crossover. Like the DC Innova, the XUV is converted into a four seater, with recliners at the rear and captain seats at the front. Like most DC Lounge packages, the XUV500 gets custom infotainment options.

DC Renault Duster

The DC Duster gets a big makeover on the outside, with revised front and rear ends, and a matt paint finish. On the inside, the DC Duster features four seats with custom leather. The SUV’s dashboard now gets rich wood trim that completely transforms the el-cheapo character of the stock Duster’s interiors.

DC Nissan Evalia

The DC Nissan Evalia is a sleeper. The exteriors of this people mover stay true to the stock version while the interiors get a complete transformation. While a six seat layout is retained, the boot is given the boot to make for additional room for the rear passengers, who now get two seat sets that face each other. The interiors gets a complete revamp with leather and infotainment bits.

DC Toyota Fortuner Lounge

India’s best selling luxury SUV gets a new front end that makes it look more like a Mitsubishi than a Toyota. The insides trade the 7 seat layout for a 2+2 layout. With 3 seats dumped, the passengers at the rear get plenty of space and entertainment options.

DC Volkswagen Polo

The DC Volkswagen Polo dumps two doors and gets converted into a sporty 3 door hatchback. Other sporty bits on the Polo include massive, low profile tyres riding on tall alloy wheels. A new paint job and a body kit that makes the Polo wider than ever before are the other highlights of the car.

DC Tata Winger Lounge

The Tata Winger is a large passenger van that can seat 9 adults in stock form. The DC lounge package dispenses with the 7 seat rear layout for a 4 seat layout, one that adds acres of space. Interior detailing and leather package apart, the DC Winger also gets restyled exteriors.

DC Nissan Sunny

The Nissan Sunny sedan, known for its long wheelbase design that delivers sofa like comfort for the rear passengers, gets an additional dose of luxury through the DC lounge package. Red leather dominates proceedings, and this can get garish on the eyes.

DC Hyundai Elantra

The DC Elantra gets a mild makeover on the outside with red highlights across the car being the major design highlight. The car exteriors also get a matt paint finish while the alloy wheels feature a new design. On the inside, the DC Elantra features red leather detailing in keeping with the overall theme.
