With the Dost, Ashok Leyland made a successful entry and charted new scales of growth in the small and entry-level commercial vehicle market. In recent years, the Ashok Leyland Dost range has spawned into several derivatives, with the Dost+ being one of the most affordable of them all. Based on the first-generation Dost, the new Ashok Leyland Dost+ features a few cosmetic and mechanical enhancements over the former.

This closed grille and headlamps are placed on a slanted front fascia, which is positioned below a sloping bonnet.
The headlamp housings also come integrated with L-shaped turn indicators. While the front bumper of the Ashok Leyland Dost+ comes body-coloured, the door handles and rearview mirrors continue to have the basic blacked-out theme. There are two colour options in which the Dost+ is on sale – White and Irish Cream.
The cabin of the Ashok Leyland Dost+ is quite decent for a small commercial vehicle of its size and price. The cabin of the Dost+ has a moulded roof with an integrated roof lamp, while the dashboard has an all-black theme with a digital instrument console.
