It's almost two years I'm using Hyundai xcent.

No compromise with power, suspension, comfort, mileage & look in its class.

Made for Indian people the sedan boasts of style, quality, space, comfort, safety and convenience.

From urban styling and generous space to superior mileage and array of features, Xcent has everything an ideal family car needs. Seats with adjustable headrests offering ample support, cup holders in the rear center armrest to hold your favorite drink, spacious rear seats comfortable enough for five passengers and ample headroom and legroom... every single feature was carefully designed for your delicate taste.

The interiors of Xcent can be best described as stylish yet practical.

The bright and airy cabin with its quality feel and carefully crafted materials sets the scene for many urban adventures.

Experienced the exciting blend of power and efficiency, ride and handling, response and quietness, plus optimized aerodynamic performance. All in one car!

The Anti-lock brake system (ABS) prevents skidding and retains car's steer ability on slippery surfaces. It also enables stable braking and restricts wheel lock-up during panic braking.

Just one ride is enough to recognize the unlimited comfort and innumerable hi-tech features Xcent has.

It is also one of the easiest petrol cars to drive in city traffic, the clutch is ultra light, so is the steering and every button that one might need is there on the steering wheel. I have always been of an opinion that the features like start/stop function can be omitted for more useful features like additional safety, projector headlamps etc.

The Xcent that is currently a part of our long term fleet has already done over 17,000 kilometres in the last two years. This is to say ,the car has been thoroughly put through the grind already. Now 17,000 kilometres may not sound like a lot, but most of these have been done by various publications as part of their stories and tests and our job description does not allow us to be too gentle with the cars. This means a bit of creaking sound from the dashboard or some noises from the doors, seats, glove box or from anywhere else in the cabin is not uncommon. It should then speak volumes about the next generation Hyundai built quality, when I say there is not a squeak from the cabin.

The run to save money and space by developing sub-four metre sedans in India has seen a surge over the years. After the Xcent was launched, we were itching to get our hands on the car for a longer duration and I did it.

The small three-cylinder engine of the Xcent is very fuel-efficient as it managed to deliver 18.9kmpl. If you take the average of both the driving conditions, you will surely consider this car for your daily chores (because kitna deti hai is our fundamental question). However, this engine lacks bottom-end torque and you need go to down a gear each time you think of overtaking someone. The gear shifts are short and excellent and the clutch feels light. Most of the time, I had the car to myself and it gave me the freedom of driving the Xcent the way I wanted to and which meant I could play hide and seek with the commercial vehicles. The Xcent is easy to drive and the steering wheel weighs up little.

And that's the end of review...!
