Maruti Vitara Brezza has become the best-selling UV in India and is extremely popular. There are many examples of the Brezza getting the grille of higher-end cars like the Jeep. Here is a modified example of the Maruti Brezza that has been modified to look like the Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. It gets a custom-made front grille that looks exactly same as the Evoque. The headlamps have been changed too and the new ones are similar to the ones we see on the Evoque. The owner has also changed the bumper to add the premium look to the vehicle.

The Land Rover Range Rover is the dream car of many. However, due to the super-expensive price tag, it remains out of the reach of many enthusiasts. Here is a Hyundai Creta that has received the Range Rover inspired grille and the Range Rover moniker on the hood. It looks nothing like the mighty Range Rover even with the updates.

Ford Endeavour – Ford Mustang

Both the cars are from Ford but one is a massive SUV while the other is a legendary muscle car. This Ford Endeavour owner chose the practical Endeavour over the Ford Mustang and decided to update the grille with the Mustang logo. It looks like a true wannabe.

Toyota Fortuner – Lexus

The Lexus SUVs are very expensive in India and costs more than the double of the Fortuner in the Indian market. The easy way is to get a full-body kit that will transform the Toyota Fortuner into the Lexus SUV. It looks wacky but will do the job of attracting attention on the road.
