DC Design is one of the most popular design houses in India. The brand also offers sportscars like Avanti and TCA in the market. They are more popular for their modification work on vehicles. We bring you 10 modifications based on the regular hatchbacks in India.
The Maruti Swift is very popular in India. The last generation of the hatchback has been modified by DC with extensive changes. The car now gets LED DRL at the front, a new air dam and a new grille. At the rear, a similar air dam has been added. The interiors get new red and white theme on the dashboard. The bumper gets a contrasting colour insert. The car does not look as outrageous as some of the other DC modified cars.
The Volkswagen Polo has a very strong design. The car modified by DC Design gets new stronger wheel arches, new bumper with contrasting colour and new headlamp. The rear doors have been removed from the vehicle and it gets a very sporty 3-door look. The car also gets larger tyres and a completely redesigned rear.
This modification job is based on the previous generation Hyundai i20. The fluidic design of the car has been replaced with DC’s work. The car gets a new, larger grille at the front with red boundary. The red accents can be seen on the front bumper that has been changed too. The fog lamps also get big red housings.
The Nano’s simple design with rear engine set-up made it quite unique. DC modified the Nano with some sportscar in mind. The front bumper gets huge air dams that even big SUVs would not be able to carry off. The Nano also gets bigger air-intakes on the rear wheel arch.
The first generation of the Hyundai Santro was not a good looking car as many would suggest. DC Design modified the car to something else altogether. The yellow coloured body of the modified car makes it really stand out. After that, the body kit of the vehicle is another design element that will get people talking. Also, the car becomes two-door with a sharply angled window line. All in all, it’s more of a two-seater with two-doors.
The Reva was the first fully electric car in India. We all agree to the fact the car carried a very odd shape. Then DC added another layer of oddness. Meet the Reva based spaceship car. The pod gets headlamps inspired by the Audi R18 sports car. The tyres get a full cover with design plates outside that mimics the drive shaft. It sure is a creative design but we’re not sure how many people will actually like it.
The Indica was one of the first passenger cars from Tata. The car looks nothing like the Indica now. It has been painted in the yellow-greenish paint. The front grille has been replaced with a plastic one with DC logo replacing the Tata logo. The headlamp units have been updated with projector headlamps with black outlining. The alloy wheels have been updated too. The rear of the car receives a new tail lamp unit that has a beam running through it. To finish it all, there is a proud DC logo sitting on the tailgate.
Almost all the manufacturers now have a cross version of their hatchbacks in India except Maruti. DC did the job for them with this WagonR. The car gets thick plastic cladding all around. The cladding material has been also used for the front grille. The headlamp unit has been replaced with multiple lamps that are used as an indicator, fog lamp and headlamp.
While the full form of the acronym B.T.S. is not known, the modified vehicle is based on the Maruti 800. DC has ripped apart the original car has put a newly fabricated body on the chassis. The B.T.S. is now a two-seater coupe and gets modern styling features. The wheel arches are flared while there are rear air-intake vents. The headlamps have been upgraded to sleeker ones and get projector lamps too.
This is another modification based on the Maruti WagonR and is called Devago. The car was modified in 2001 and is based on the Maruti WagonR chassis. The Devago gets a newly fabricated body in yellow colour. Only two people can now occupy the vehicle instead of four.
