Funky Cars at the 2018 Auto Expo:
Maruti Suzuki Future S at 2018 Auto Expo:
MSIL unveiled a futuristic concept car, the Maruti Suzuki Future S at the 2018 Auto Expo. A compact SUV, the Future S, represents Maruti Suzuki’s next level of design evolution. According to the manufacturer, the car manifests a perfect combo of design, proportions and body sculpting. It offers a stimulating fusion of bold patterns and accent colors.
The Future S maintains a curved silhouette which gives it a young, playful and urban character. The car has an upright stance which merges smoothly into the hood and rear slanting roof-line. Then, it joins the forward leaning rear windshield; giving the car seamless finish. With the high-seating body structure, the car looks tall which is a typical character of an SUV.
Some of the interesting design cues include the wrap-around A-Pillar that bonds with the door-sill and adds the ‘cool’ element to the car. Also, the body-to-glass proportion gives the Future S the typical SUV stance. Another concept car from Maruti Suzuki stable on the display was e-Survivor. However, the focus was mainly on Future S which drew attention.
Tata H5X at 2018 Auto Expo:
The H5X was Tata Motors’ show-stopper at the Auto Expo when home-grown carmaker showcased the concept SUV. It was the most stylish cars ever from the house of Tatas. This is exactly what Tata Motors’ fans have been looking for. Three cheers to Team Tata Motors for the H5X. The car looks no less than any leading brand in the world in terms of funky appeal. Therefore, it was undoubtedly a crowd-puller for sure.
Tata H5X closely resembles its high-end luxury branded sibling which is the Land Rover Evoque. Besides, the production version of the car will use Land Rover’s L550 platform. The display car had 22-inch alloy wheels and huge wheel arches which further endorse the SUV‘s stance. The slender and sharp LED headlights enhance the car’s aggressive look. The Tata’s trademark ‘humanity line’ seamlessly blends the headlights with front grille. Furthermore, the front bumper also gets unique styling with the fog lamp inserts that showcase Tata ‘Tri-Arrow’ design.
Furthermore, the H5X will be available with 5-and-7-seat options. The car will get its power from Fiat’s Multijet II, diesel engine with two tune options. The 140hp engine will drive the five-seater version whereas the 170hp powerplant will drive the seven-seater version. The upcoming Tata H5X has all the ingredients in terms of the looks and specs. Besides, it has the potential to kill the competition with the right price tag.
Renault Concept car at 2018 Auto Expo:
Renault India also showcased one of the funkiest designed cars at the on-going 2018 Auto Expo. The concept car has been designed by Renault Design Academy in India. The concept is a two-door, twin-seater coupe which has a seamless design.

DC Design TCA at 2018 Auto Expo:
Another home-grown sports carmaker in India, DC Design, unveiled a new sports car named the ‘TCA’ at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo. The term TCA stands for ‘Titanium, Carbon, and Aluminum’. DC Design will widely use these materials while building this sports car. Powering the TCA is a 3.8 liter V6 petrol engine which delivers a whopping 320 Bhp. This engine will mate with 6-speed automatic gearbox. Moreover, the car features a rear wheel drive layout which most sports cars use. Besides, the car will have low ground clearance and also weigh much lesser than the Avanti.
Furthermore, the car can sprint 0-100 Km/h in just 4.5 seconds. Thus, when launched, the DC TCA will become the fastest production car ever designed and built in India. DC will produce the TCA at its Talegaon factory in Maharashtra, besides the Avanti. However, DC Design will make only 299 units of the TCA. The mid-engined sports car will cost Rs. 39 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi. Surely, the TCA is among the funkiest cars of the 2018 Auto Expo.
