It is not only the premium segment which gets all the detailing and attention by Hyundai but also the entry level segment, which has seen many benchmarks. Going by their trend of awarding the Indian customers with the best in class features, Hyundai recently launched the Xcent which is a sedan based on the popular Grandi10 hatchback.
Hyundai Xcent will have a tough responsibility as it carries ahead the legacy set by Accent which was a fine sedan of its time. The new car targets a younger and vibrant clientele who are dynamic when it comes to making choices. It gets the same powertrain as seen in the Grandi10 hatchback. In this review, we shall find out if the new Xcent can take the benchmark further and challenge the stalwarts of Honda Amaze and Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire.
Exterior:It is based on the Grandi10 hatchback and thus borrows similar looks. It is just an additional boot which makes all the difference. Hyundai's much acclaimed Fluidic Design language has really worked well on all its cars. However, the Xcent doesn't look as 'Wow!' as other Hyundais in India.
The hexagonal grille is bold in design. The headlights sweep back towards the side as well as on the bonnet making it look large. The lower section of the front bumper has multiple crease lines.
The Xcent too gets machined alloy wheels like the Grandi10. The side profile looks balanced with the additional boot. It does not look as coarse as the Swift DZire. It has a wheelbase of 2425mm which is exactly the same in the hatchback. This effectively means the interior space remains untouched but this time the luggage space has been increased.
The new rear end looks smart and crisp with no additional lines. It has been kept clean without giving any fussy design elements. The tail lamps are again similar in design but the reflection shape and style has been changed in the Xcent which makes it look clean.
Interior:Inside the Xcent's cabin, nothing has been changed and the reason for not doing so is very simple. This one too bets on great space and features like its sibling.
The glove box has enormous space. It also doubles as a cold storage option. Even in the central console there are numerous storage pockets. It gets two different types of cup holders on the central area with an intermittent rectangular stowage space. The front door pockets are useful too as they offer space to keep essential documents as well as a litre class bottle.
Even the rear door gets a generous door pocket. There is also a back pocket behind the co-driver seat for keeping magazines but the same is not given behind the driver's seat. The rear boot space too is very grand in nature and can pack in amazing quantities of bags. This space can be increased by collapsing the rear sear bench.
The vibrations levels in the Xcent are even lower than the Grand and the gear shifts too are very smooth. Unlike some other diesel engines, power delivery is very active even at lower engine speeds. It is not fair to compare it with the 1.5L iDTEC engine as both these engines have their own distinct character. The one on Xcent feels very nimble while that on Amaze feels very dominating. Finally it Value for Paid money car...
