DC Avanti Review


India’s first indigenous sportscar, DC Avanti is one of the most affordable sportscars in the world. Unveiled at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo, this two-seater is powered by a Renault-sourced 248bhp, 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is paired to a six-speed manual transmission. The car comes with a standard 1 year/ 10,000kms of warranty period. Currently, the DC Avanti is manufactured at the company’s Chinchwad, Pune facility that has installation capacity of 1,200 units per annum.


The Avanti is an absolute stunner. It wears bold and sporty stances, and offers a commanding road presence. It features slender bi-halogen projector headlamps, curvy bonnet, body-colored front and rear bumpers, turn indicators on ORVMs and other styling elements. The car rides on 20-inches, 255x35 R20 front and 295x30 R20 rear tyres. Based on the lightweight composite high steel chassis, this sportscar measures 4,565mm in length, 2,120mm in width and 1,200mm in height, and features a wheelbase of 2,700mm. It has a ground clearance of 155mm. The DC Avanti is available with a choice of three exterior paints - Red, White and Silver.


The interior of the DC Avanti looks as sporty and premium as its exterior. The car comes with a touchscreen infotainment system, a digital instrument panel with the resolution of an iPad, a pair of hooded dials, centre console with body-coloured separator, chrome surrounds and integrated screens and customized three-spoke steering wheel.  The Avanti is India’s first car to feature Apple CarPlay infotainment system as customization option. It also comes with Alcantara leather interiors and 4,000 interior trim levels personalization options. It’s spacious enough, and offers comfortable riding position. Though, the headroom is a bid tight for tall passengers. The seats are available with four upholstery options - Grey, Tan, Black and Red.

Engine and Transmission

Powering the DC Avanti is a Renault-sourced 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is paired to a six-speed manual transmission. It is capable to produce a maximum power output of 248bhp at 5,500rpm and 340Nm of torque between 2,750rpm - 5,000rpm.

Performance and Handling

The Avanti’s Renault-sourced engine is tractable yet loud. This engine can mark 0-100km/h in six seconds, while maintaining a top speed of 200km/h. The turbo-lag is minimal, gearshifts are short and responsive. Though, the clutch is a tad heavy.  The ride quality is good, thanks to its stiffer suspension that absorbs bigger bumps on uneven roads.

Braking System

With strong braking capabilities, this sportscar ensures a safe and confidence-inspiring drive. The car gets 330mm ventilated front brakes with a four-piston caliper and 295mm rear disc brakes, along with ABS (anti-lock braking system) and EBD (electronic brake-force distribution).


The 2000 cc Petrol - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 8 kmpl in city and 10 kmpl on highways.

Safety Features

DC claims that the Avanti has a carbon fiber body shell with lightweight space frame chassis that ensures safety of passengers. It comes equipped with high speed rating tyres, side impact bar, roll cage design and carbon fiber body. Features like ABS (anti-lock braking system), EBD (electronic brake-force distribution), all four disc brakes, three-point seat belts with pre-tensioner, Bi-halogen projector headlamps, carbon composite two door fastback lighting, tinted glasses, etc. are also on offer. Though, the car doesn’t get airbag, not even as option.


DC’s Avanti is an ultimate fun to drive sportscar. It’s quick and looks very attractive. The stiffer suspension and high speed stability are impressive too. The cabin is a great place to sit ib, and material quality is up to desired standards. Though, the cabin insulation is still an issue that needs to be addressed.
