Version Reviewed : S 1.2 [2014-2016]
Purchased As : New
Familiarity : Have driven for a few hundred kilometres
Fuel Economy : 14 kpl
Good : Interiors are too good for this class of cars, Feature Packed machine, Unbeatable Price
Bad : Hyundai's Fluidic Concept is really god but not very well reflected in Xcent
Exterior The Car comes with good exteriors though Hyundai could have given a slight upward lift to the back to make it look more appealing.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Interiors are so compelling that you cannot resist buying one for you. Frankly, no car (sedan) would come at such a low cost with Rear AC vents, Rear Parking Sensor, Rear Power Windows and with a company fitted music system with Steering Mounted Controls, Bluetooth Connectivity etc. A must buy in terms of interiors. The cabin is so silent that you cannot even hear the sound of your own horn inside (on an extremely busy road).
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox 1.2 ltr pertol is the same Kappa used in i10 and now Grand i10. Gives 12-14 kmph in city and 18-19 on highways, Gear Shift is extremely smooth. And gear shift patern is different in Diesel variant.
Pros: Very spacious Petrol engine smooth and silent Smooth gear shift Fuel efficient - 11 / 20 kmpl Rear AC vent and rear power outlet convenient Reliable and trouble-free Steering mounted audio controls very convenient Bluetooth phone interface is excellent Excellent fit and finish Value for money
Cons: Multifunction display does not give fuel consumption (kmpl) Suspension allows potholes to be felt inside
Ride Quality & Handling Perfect ten for ride quality (in city).
Final Words If you are going for hatchback in this budget and love to own a sedan, Xcent is the perfect choice.
Areas of improvement Looks could have been more appealing like that of Verna & Elantra had fluidic concept been incorporated more creatively.
