It was the first car ever made in India and it quickly became a status symbol for many wealthy families and an official car for politicians and civil servants. Hindustan Motors stopped production of the Ambassador sedan in 2014.

The steering wheel is two-tone, and the center console of this sedan was borrowed from the Hyundai Terracan SUV. There is an automatic air conditioning unit.

There are multiple layers of floor mats and the faux wood trim inserts on the dashboard give the car an elegant look. There is an armrest for the driver and behind there are storage spaces. Cloth seat covers are replaced with custom leatherette upholstery. The roof lining of this sedan has also been redone and the light-colored cabin is elegant. Just like the exteriors, the interior of this sedan is also a mix of retro and modern elements.
