DC Design has been involved in car designing over a long time now. One of the most popular modification houses, DC Design has worked on various segments of cars. Here are ten hatchbacks that have been modified by the Indian customisation house.
The Maruti Swift is an extremely popular car and is in its third generation now. DC Design modified a previous generation Swift giving it a new identity. The car gets new LED DRL, a bigger air dam and radiator grille, new bumper inserts and blue highlights on the body. The car has been reworked from the inside too. The Swift seen here gets an all-red interior theme.
The Volkswagen Polo gets a timeless design. The popular hatcback Polo is known for its handling and build quality. DC Design has put the Polo under the hammer to alter the way it looks. The body has been altered to make it a two-door version. It also gets flared up wheel arches, new headlamps and a new bumper. There are red highlights all over the body. It also gets wider tyres to match with the wider wheel arches.
The Hyundai i20 is a very popular car in the market. The latest version of the i20 in the Indian market gets premium European design. DC Design modified the first-generation i20 with a new sporty front grille with thick contrasting red boundary. It hatchback also gets red accents on the bumper that matches the grille.
The Tata Nano became world famous when it was initially launched. The most affordable car in the world was also altered by DC Design. The humble-looking Nano received huge air dams with new bumpers. The car also received dual body tone and huge air intake scoops near the rear door.
The Hyundai Santro moniker will soon make a comeback to the Indian market. The hatchback was extremely popular in the Indian market and gave stiff competition to the Maruti 800. The DC version of the Santro has no resemblance to the original design. Everything in the hatchback has been updated with a fibreglass body that now has two doors.
The first generation Reva-i was an odd looking car. The two-seater electric car did not become much popular in the market due to the lack of charging infrastructure. Here is a DC Design modified Reva that looks like a spaceship. It even gets the toy-car-like design on the surface to mimic the transmission and tyres.
The Tata Indica was the first passenger car from the manufacturer in India. It was one of the first cars to offer a diesel engine in the market in India. The DC modified version gets a new grille and new projector headlamps. The tail lamps have been updated too with the latest LED lamps. It gets a green-yellow paint job that makes it look different.
Maruti Suzuki WagonR
Almost all the manufacturers now have a cross version of their hatchbacks including Maruti who launched the Celerio X. DC Design also converted a WagonR into a crossover. 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.
