DC Design has always been known for customizing your everyday car into something so different that you end-up questioning whether it’s yours. And, at times, they do a pretty good job at it from luxury vehicles including the Rolls Royce to the common man’s car Tata Nano. Now the Pune-based customizing firm has introduced a comprehensive cosmetic package for the country’s most popular compact SUV, Ford EcoSport.
This modification package enhances the overall appearance of the EcoSport’s exteriors as well as interiors. On the front side, the modified EcoSport consists of strips of LED replacing the headlamps, the headlights pushed below into the bumper. The front bumper is completely new gets a huge air intake with a mesh type front grille. While the front-end styling of the car looks futuristic, we aren’t sure of its side and rear looks.
On the inside similar to the DC modified Duster, firstly you’ll notice that the 5-seater EcoSport can now accommodate only four, in a 2+2 format. The interior is done up completely with a faux and leather finish, at the same time there’s plenty of dual-tone on door panels. The 3-seater rear bench is replaced by two seats that can be electronically adjustable, and the backrest can also be reclined to a certain degree.
Furthermore, the DC modified EcoSport gets a mood lighting and the driver seat houses a LCD screen which can be adjusted to get the perfect view. The centre console gets a new head unit replacing the Ford SYNC head unit. The front passenger seat can be conveniently folded to rest legs with ease. Mechanically, the DC modified EcoSport is expected to remain unchanged. We expect the DC modified EcoSport to be priced starting from Rs. 3.50 lakh for its interior and Rs. 1.20 lakh for the exterior.
Refresher – Ford EcoSport is available with three engine options including a 1.5-litre petrol, 1.5-litre diesel and the revolutionary 1.0-litre EcoBoost. Of the three, only the 1.5-litre petrol will be offered with an optional automatic gearbox, whereas the others will only be available with manual transmission. Price of the EcoSport starts at Rs. 5.82 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), a price that makes it cheaper than both the Renault Duster and Nissan Terrano by a big margin.
