The Indian weather is not exactly suited for convertible cars. The amount of dust and pollution mixed with extreme weather condition makes the convertibles extremely less popular in India. However, what if the weather turns out to be extremely pleasant all year-round and manufacturers roll out convertible cars in India in near future? We bring 10 cars that have been reimagined as convertibles.
Maruti Suzuki Swift
The all-new Maruti Suzuki Swift was recently launched in India. The new hatchback gets an all-new design and looks quite when compared to the previous generation Swift. The all-new Swift is a young looking vehicle and removing the roof has quite an impact on the overall body. The cabriolet example is a two-door one and looks quite hot in this form.
Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza
The Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza is Maruti’s first sub 4-meter compact SUV in India. The Brezza quickly became the best selling UV in the Indian market soon after its launch and still holds the position strongly. The Vitara Brezza attracts a lot of youths due to its customisation options and funky looks. In its top-less form, it also gets a new grille that further enhances the looks.
Mahindra TUV Stinger
Mahindra officially showcased the TUV based convertible at the 2018 Auto Expo. It is called the Stinger. It is based on the TUV 300 sub 4-meter SUV but it has been heavily modified. The body design of the TUV is quite evident in the convertible but the body design is a lot more powerful than the TUV. It gets power bulges and stronger body lines. The car also had a more powerful 2.2-litre – 140 Bhp.
Mahindra XUV 500
The best seller from the D-segment receives a mixed reaction from the market when it comes to the looks. Nonetheless, the XUV has the butch looks to make it own the road any day. This convertible based on the XUV is a unique one. The two-seater, two-door convertible sure will turn a number of heads when on road. Mahindra recently showcased the XUV Aero during the Auto Expo early this year, we should just sit tight and trust in Mahindra’s design team.
The Kwid has become a hot selling product for Renault in India. The car has been gaining popularity with each passing month. The topless version of the car does not look like a bad idea at all. The rendering is based on the Kwid racer concept and the additions like dual tone grille and the native SUV-ish looks of the Kwid make it a hot looking convertible.
The Hyundai Elantra made its comeback to the Indian market this year. The Elantra competes with the likes of Toyota Corolla Altis and gets some segment-best features. The Elantra looks very premium, especially in its new form. The open roof form of the car looks extremely captivating and elegant.
The Honda Accord has entered in its sixth generation and was recently launched in India. The Accord has shed its classy looks for sporty, and modern exteriors now. Accord is made to chauffeur businessmen around comfortably around the town but what if we say that it has a magnetic effect when its roof is chopped? Don’t believe us? This is a true example.
Hyundai Elite i20
The Elite i20 is a looking hatchback. It gets big grille and strong body lines that catches many eyes. The Elite i20 is loved by many because of its looks and the convertible version of the car takes the looks to a different level altogether.
There is no doubt in the fact that the Skoda Octavia is a hot looking sedan. The busy design lines on the bonnet and the powerful shoulder line on the sedan make it a perfect car for open roof design. The renderer has smartly changed the colours of the A-Pillars making the whole package even better.
Honda Civic is not in India yet but Honda has officially confirmed that the car will be launched soon. This render is based on a new-age Honda Civic and looks very attractive. The two-door convertible render incorporates the new age Honda grille and the LED lamps, that add to the extremely sporty look of the vehicle.
