India’s very own West Coast Customs, DC Design, is back on our front page for two creations that India will love. The first creation is a makeover to the interior of the Mahindra XUV500.

The forward section of the cabin has not changed much with a caramel color scheme consistently spread across the seats and dashboard.

The Lounge Package however has completely transformed its rear seat travel. The second and third row seats have been evacuated and in place a giant sofa is installed that provides Maharaja comfort for two occupants. DC has not detailed the modifications, but we expect these seats to be multi-way adjustable and support every muscle in the human torso!

Occupants are further spoilt with the installation of two giant LCD displays on the front seat backs. Below the LCD displays, aircraft-style foldable food trays are fitted. DC has restyled the ceiling, endowing it with fancy lights that look stunning in the dark.

To break the monotony, DC has accented the cabin with wood grain and chrome inserts.

Moving to the next package, its not very hard to ascertain the target audience for this creation. The good old Ambassador is the ‘Mantriji’s’ luxury car.  It is appointed with light beige seats and trims, and contrasting fake wood finishes on the separator.

Mounted on the partition is a small curtain and individual screens for two passengers. DC has installed a roof-mounted aircon unit and similar to the XUV500 lounge pack, fitted food trays for quick snacks.

The exterior enhancements are not as intense as the Ambirod concept, but nevertheless they gift the stock Amby with simplicity and functionality. The headlight units are bi-xenons, while the restyled grille and bumpers are garnished using a chrome applique. The side profile of the car is untouched, while the rear is more of a clean-up job with a simple bumper, LED light clusters on the stop light and a chrome-tipped exhaust.

Do you like these modifications? What are your thoughts?

    I have a limited edition AVIGo. Extremely happy with the car.

    Except for the headlights and tail lights in the ambassador, other design enhancements are borderline offensive. The grill is oversized and the rear bumper looks like an afterthought.

    First, the XUV. The interiors are mind-boggling. Many congratulations to DC for the effort. I suspect Mallya might buy one of these and take some bank managers around and coax them to give some loan to his airlines.
    Second, the amby. I am surprised to note the beacon on top suggesting that it is exclusive to the politicos. But, these days these folks have become smarter, they want D class sedans for themselves. But then, all credit to DC for the interiors; exteriors remain unimpressive though.

    I somehow was not happy about the interior theme used in the XUV, AMby was an utter waste.

    For some strange reason the center console of the XUV500 reminded me of that of a Aston

    Wow, DC has made a remarkable job on these cars although i’m still disappointed with Ambassador, due to positive impression of Ambirod concept. I’m not able to make out from the Ambassador picture, how did they get so much rear space in a stock Ambassador? Any modification to chassis? XUV really looks great, since it was falling short in the interior quality. Shrawan there is one more question, is there any update on upcoming Tata’s air car launch plan? It’s already August and they are suppose to launch it in this month: http://indianautosblog.com/2012/02/tata-air-car-mini-cat-launch.
