I am a proud owner of Hyundai Xcent 1.1 CRDi SX(O). I bought this car in September 2015. The car is excellent value for money & has got features that only high end vehicles usually get access to. Lets start with the interior, its got dual tone interiors which gives it a premium feel, integrated music system is good(not amazing), but its got a good feel to it. Phone integration through bluetooth is a must have these days & Hyundai does not disappoint, seamless integration & phone read more 8
Looks and design: Yes, it is identical to the Grand i10 till the B-pillar but after it, the story changes. The boot is blended superbly in the body which makes it look proportionate and the length is controlled under 4 meter. It also has the largest boot space amongst its competitors, 407 litres. The engine compartment has been designed adequately so that it utilises minimum space, allowing good wheelbase, legroom and a large boot. Front of the car looks amazing with a large grill and use of chr read more 1
Hyundai Xcent has big shoes to fill in after being named the official successor of the Hyundai Accent. The Accent has been in production for around a decade - a successor was inevitable. More so, since the sales are off and the competition is getting ahead. But Hyundai made all the right moves and even got the next car named similarly to keep up the continuity in our minds. Clever indeed.
Things We Like in Xcent

Rear seats good for only two people; third will be a tight fit.
Handling not for enthusiasts.
Stand Out Features
Chilled glovebox, rear-ac vents - good to have features at the price point.
Best-in-class boot space (407 liters).
Just like its hatchback brother Grand i10, the Hyundai Xcent brings segment leading features, great build quality and contemporary design to its own segment.
"The Xcent is amongst the best compact sedans you can place your money on."
While the features and build quality will do wonders for the car, the exterior design may come off as too plain for some. The Xcent is amongst the best compact sedans you can place your money on.
About 70 percent of sales in the Mid-segment category of vehicles come from the sub-four meter category of automobiles. This is the most appealing segment to a growing car market like ours. Customers are always looking to upgrade from their hatchbacks and get a small family sedan. There are a few options in the category, the most well known being the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire and the Honda Amaze. Now the famous Korean manufacturer, Hyundai has made it's presence felt in this mid-sized segment as well by launching the new Xcent. We travel to Hyderabad to see what the entire buzz is about.
