Hyundai Xcent review

Overview

Introduction

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.

Pros

1. Good looking compact sedan, all-pleasing design.

2. Best-in-class build quality and interiors.

3. Neutral handling and comfortable ride quality.

Cons

1.Handling not for enthusiasts.

2. Rear seats good for only two people; third will be a tight fit.

 Stand out features

1. Best-in-class boot space (407 liters).

2. Chilled glovebox, rear-ac vents - good to have features at the price point. 

Exterior

Hyundai has done an excellent job of converting a hatchback, Grand i10 into a sedan, the Xcent. The boot has been seamlessly integrated into the body, which seems to be a challenge in the compact sedan segment. Especially in the case of converting a hatchback into a sedan for the obvious cost cutting reasons. The Xcent, just like the Grand i10, is longer than its European version.

The front of the Hyundai Xcent is a colour copy of the Grand i10. You get the same face but the hexagonal grille now gets a chrome surround around the air dam. The swept back headlamps and the fog lamps are neatly designed.

To the side, there’s the same silhouette as the Grand i10 till the B-pillar. A sharp crease joins the door handles to the tail lamps while a black moulding through the waist adds as a safety aid keeping away the scratches through tighter parking spots. As we move closer to the C-pillar, the differences begin with a different rear door and then there’s the boot. The roof rails that made their presence known in the Grand i10 take a leave of absence here. 

The three quarter profile of the Xcent displays the contemporary design of the sedan styling. 

At the back, the wrap-around tail lamps look neat while the rear bumper looks meaty. Some may take the rear styling of the Xcent to be too simple. The parking sensors are body coloured in the Xcent while the reflectors in the rear bumper are different from the Grand i10. 

The top end variants get dual tone diamond cut 15-inch alloy wheels while the lesser variants get 14-inch ones. The 15-inch alloy wheels look good adding a touch of style to the exteriors. Other features include chrome finished door handles, ORVM mounted turn-indicators, chrome number plate garnish, stubby radio antenna at the rear etc. 

Interiors

Hop inside the Xcent and it’s the same layout as the Grand i10 and it’s good. These interiors are amongst  the best in the business. The quality of the materials and the way the parts are put together match the cars from a segment above. 

The interiors get a black and beige treatment, which seems to be norms these days. The interiors are airy with the full beige seats and the cabin feels spacious.  

The steering is sized just right and feels premium to hold. The steering mounted controls are neatly laid, good on size and easy to access.  

For the instrument cluster, a big speedometer in the middle takes the spotlight with a half-moon tacho to the left and two dials for engine temperature and fuel level to the right. There is also a multi-information display below showing the odometer, two trip meters and other useful information while distance to empty meter is sorely missed.

The centre console gets an entertainment system on the top with two circular AC vents to either side. The 2-DIN integrated system supports radio, MP3, CD, USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth connectivity and also has a 1 GB internal memory for all your music needs.

The bottom of the centre console gets the automatic climate control setup on the top variant. This is an upgrade over the Grand i10.

Storage space comes in the form of bottle holders on all the doors, cup holders in the middle, fairly spacious glove box and other nips and knacks. 

The front seats are very comfortable with amazing under thigh support but the integrated headrests continue to probe our complaining cells again from the Grand i10.


At the rear, two people can travel comfortably but fitting in a third person will make things a bit uncomfortable. This can be attributed  to the narrower width of the Xcent when compared to the competition. But the Xcent more than compensates that in the boot space, which is a segment-leading 407 liters. Absence of rear folding seats limits the cargo space to the boot alone.

Performance

Hyundai Xcent is available in both petrol and diesel versions. A 1.2-litre engine powers the petrol Xcent while a 1.1-litre pot drives the diesel Xcent.  Both the units are carried over from the Grand i10. The petrol gets the option of a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox, the diesel version gets only the 5-speed manual. The fuel economy is rated at 19.10 kmpl for the petrol and 24.4 kmpl for the diesel as test by ARAI. The figures are not segment leading in either case but they will do.

Xcent Petrol

The petrol Xcent makes a maximum power of 82 bhp at 6000 rpm and maximum torque of 114 Nm at 4000 rpm. The petrol engine is extremely smooth, high on refinement and offers flawless power delivery. Low end torque delivery is smooth, the mid range is very good and on the highway, the petrol engine easily quips the diesel one easily, especially when you have to overtake. The gearbox shifts into positions nice and easy.

Xcent Diesel

The 1.1-litre 2nd Gen U2 diesel engine made its debut with the Grand and makes a maximum power of 70 bhp at 4000 rpm and a peak torque of 160 Nm at 1500-2750 rpm. The 3-cylinder is weaker than the competition but the drivability is good enough for hassle free city commute. Linear power delivery ensures clean power output while the turbo lag is kept to the minimum. As told earlier, the diesel engine is no highway charmer, failing to put in any horses past 3700 rpm.

Ride and Handling

As is the Grand i10, the Xcent too has been tuned for ride comfort over handling. So, while you can go on driving over speed bumps and irregular roads with minimum disturbances, don’t expect the Xcent to get enthusiastic around the corners or curves. Overall, the handling of the car will neither surprise you nor excite. The steering, typical of Hyundais is feather light. It is an absolute boon inside the city. However, it feels dead out on the highway. There is next to no feedback from the steering and the sense of vagueness will often turn into nervousness at triple digit speeds.

Safety

Hyundai Xcent comes with the ABS standard on all variants while driver and front passenger airbags are on offer for the top two variants. Other safety features include engine immobiliser, central locking, rear parking sensors, rear camera and rear defogger.

Variants

Hyundai Xcent comes in four variants for both petrol and diesel versions - Base, S, SX and SX (O). 

The Base variant gets you engine immobiliser, central locking, day and night rear view mirror, ABS, body coloured bumpers, full wheel cover, power steering, blue interior illumination, adjustable rear seat headrests, manual AC with heater, cooled glove box, front power outlet, front power windows and internally adjustable ORVMs

The S variant will be one of the best selling variants as it offers lots of features without going much above the cost. The features include rear defogger, rear parking sensors, body coloured ORVMs and door handles, turn indicators on ORVMs, waistline molding, 2-DIN music system, steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls, rear power windows, electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs, tilt steering, driver seat height adjust, keyless entry and rear AC vents.

The SX takes safety further with driver and passenger airbags, electro chromic inside rear view mirror, rear camera and 14-inch alloy wheels.

The top end SX (O) offers smart key, 15-inch alloy wheels, chrome outside door handles, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear knob, auto AC and push button start/stop.

Verdict

Just like its hatchback brother Grand i10, the Hyundai Xcent brings segment leading features, great build quality and contemporary design to its own segment. 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.
