Doors are one of the most integral part of cars. It is what basically separates it from other open bodied vehicles. They help reducing cabin noise, increase safety and privacy, and also provide ease of ingress-egress among many other benefits. Almost all of the regular cars we see on roads come equipped with side hinged, front opening doors, that are the most uncomplicated and convenient way of making car doors.
However, there are many other doors styles too like gullwing doors, scissor doors, sliding doors, rear opening doors among others. Gullwing doors and scissor doors are the coolest looking of the lot but only come with high end cars like Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz sports cars, and Ferrari etc. In India, many modifiers have fitted scissor doors to regular cars and they look way too cool. Let’s take a look at 5 best examples from around the country and drool over these beautiful cars
Though Chevrolet has wrapped up its Indian business, it is still remembered for some of the amazing cars it sold while its stint here. Among them is the Cruze, which had both looks and power to make an enthusiast happy. The one pictured here has also been done by 360 Motoring.
Talking of the changes, it gets sexy scissor doors that alone raise the hotness quotient. The front end is much more beefier and gets a redesigned bumper, a new grille and new projector lights with LED DRLs. There is a huge, muscular bonnet scoop too along with wider wheel arches, and air vents. The icing on the cake is its unique bright yellow paint job, which makes it stand out among the crowd of regular cars.
The Maruti Suzuki Swift is a modifiers delight and comes in a budget. The one here is a last generation model and and has tons of modifications done on it, chief among them being those gorgeous scissor doors.

Detailed bits like bonnet scoop and roof spoiler also look quite good.
The Alto is Maruti Suzuki’s best selling car in India. The entry level hatchback was a hit among the general public because of its affordability, low running costs and decent amount of space.

It has been lowered and now runs on low profile tires shod on multi spoke 17 inch rims. The glossy red paint job does the rest of the job, complimented by gloss black roof and pillars.
