September 17, 2014: Hyundai India has appointed the Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan as the brand ambassador for it's compact sedan - Hyundai Xcent. Hyundai has also launched a new TV commercial for the Xcent featuring SRK, depicting their philosophy 'multiply your life'. Shah Rukh Khan has been endorsing Hyundai's product from the past 16 years, from Santro's to i10 and now Xcent. Mechanically, Xcent is powered by a Grand i10 borrowed diesel and petrol engines and sports several segment first features.

Overview

Hyundai is primed to take on the compact sedan's street triple as the scout is here to rake the fight to pure commuter's range with the release of Hyundai Xcent. This five seater vehicle from the Hyundai's tray also accommodates the votes of the majority of audience for its superior picture perfect product. This model is offered in petrol as well as diesel versions to choose from. It is stitched over the Grand i10 and the pick list is widened by making it available in couple of variants. The all new Xcent, well, not all that new because, while retaining the standard factors that it is known for, it also manages to impress with added utility features that are not usually seen in this segment. The exterior is dressed up with chrome, and chrome, and a lot more of chrome. The stylish set of 15 inch alloy wheels is available for the top end, whereas the mid range variant is fitted with 14-inch clean silver alloy wheels. The diesel trims are decked with a second generation 1.1-litre CRDi engine that displaces 1120cc and is packed with a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. It sticks to its lineage of Grand i10 by retaining the same engines. The petrol trims are integrated with a 1.2-litre Kappa Dual VTVT petrol engine that is based on a DOHC valve configuration teamed with a 5-speed manual transmission gearbox that has a mind of its own when it comes to torque distribution. Arguably the most comfortable of the lot, it has got a motor that packs a lot of punch. Performance clubbed with comfort, the Xcent offers a spacious cabin and a seating that can safely be called a couch. This is a performance packed engine that can put most cars to shame. True to its heritage, this is a machine that is easily swayed into almost any category. The dash that's been stripped down to create a stunning inside by spreading a theme of dual tone beige and black color scheme that is hit by a blue illumination, making this vehicle undoubtedly one of the best looking inn on wheels. Equipped with functions like air conditioning, an automated temperature control, electric power steering and push start/stop button makes this car fun to ride, looks good and is a proper brit muscle. This attempt of Hyundai to redefine practicality has payed off by launching its next generation vehicle now with a better face and more 'race effects'. The mid range and the top end variants have a 4-speed automatic transmission gear box adds to the 'X- factor. Want a performance oriented vehicle with a bit of style? Then this car is a decent alternative to the other offerings. An expensive but fine machine and convenient for city errands. Hey, extra features costs money. Need we say more for what to pick, while the mileage too stands in support by squeezing a 24.4 kmpl from diesel and 19.1 kmpl from petrol.

Ed's take :- The petrol engine on the XCent is the tried and tested and it returns a good figure of 12km/l under normal driving conditions.

Braking & Handling

Ed's take : The handling of the XCent is good for what purpose it has been built. There is a good amount of body roll, but it hasn’t been designed to be driven fast around a track and even on winding roads at speeds in three digits. The rear suspension on the XCent is softer for better ride quality for those who are chauffeur driven.

 

The efficiency of an automobile is hugely dependent on the braking system and this has been addressed quite well by the manufacturers of this Hyundai Xcent. An advanced anti lock braking system is offered in the S Option as well as the SX option trims, which facilitates in efficient mechanism. Conventional disc brakes are fixed to the front wheels, while the rear wheels are affixed with drum brakes. In order to glide smoothly over uneven roads, an efficient suspension is required and this has been taken well care of by the designers. The front axle is equipped with a McPherson strut with coil springs and then the rear axle is fitted with a twist beam type of a mechanism. The electric power assisted steering system plays a role in enriching the handling of this compact sedan. By having a tilt adjustable steering mechanism, there is a feasibility to adjust it according to the driver's preference.

Safety & Security

Ed's take : The safety features on the XCent include dual airbags and ABS.

 

After all that is said and done, the choice always boils down to the protection, a vehicle can provide to the occupants. The heavy built of Hyundai Xcent keeps you grounded all the time ensuring that the vehicle is stable and balanced at all speed levels. On the inside, there are air bags for the front passengers, which further enhance their safety, in case of a head-on collision. The car can face possible threats, while it is even parked anywhere, then such theft issues and unauthorized access can be taken care of by the engine immobilizer feature, which has been incorporated into this compact sedan. To top it all, it has an anti lock braking system that takes care of slippery roads and keeps the car . The rear bumper has a safety aspect that has a pair of reflectors incorporated into it. There is a central door locking system, with which the driver can simultaneously lock or unlock all the doors, by just pressing a button. Another couple of crucial aspects which this compact sedan has are a pair of front fog lamps affixed in the bumper and the rear windscreen defogger that helps in extreme weather conditions. The instrument cluster does a lot of multi tasking and has several alarms and buzzers for the driver's attention. These include door ajar warning lamp and the driver seat belt notification. Other intelligent features that have been equipped for adding more utility are a smart keyless entry, parking sensors to identify the objects when reversing, while the camera shows it on the ECM display.

    While overall the car is good, a basic feature of AC is rubbish. I purchased an Xcent Petrol and got the AC of the car repaired 2 times within 4 months of purchase. After that even the AC cooling is very little because the AC cuts off too soon. If you use this car in the summer, you will have to run the car AC on 3, to even feel that the AC is running, while not really cooling the car.
