Hyundai is all set to bring in its new offering, the Xcent, into the sub-4 metre sedan segment. We check out whether it stands tall against all the competition

After discontinuing sales of Hyundai’s longest selling sedan, the Accent, Hyundai has now unveiled its Grand i10 based sedan at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo. The fact, that this new sedan has been named after the outgoing Accent, speaks volumes about its fan following. The Xcent is Hyundai’s attempt at making a place for itself in the sub 4- metre sedan segment.

 

The Xcent will not only be based on the same platform as the Grand i10 but will also come with the same engine options – the 1.2-litre Kappa 2 petrol unit and the 1.1-litre diesel powerplant. We expect the power rating to remain unchanged. On the inside, the Xcent will be a familiar office for those who have seen the Grand i10. Hyundai will continue its trend of loading their car with equipments such as button start/stop, keyless entry, rear AC vents, reversing camera, Bluetooth telephony, steering mounted controls and the works.

 

With the Xcent, Hyundai seems to have made all the right moves, on paper at least, but when you take into account its competitors like Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze and the soon to be launched Tata Zest, the Xcent will surely have a task at hand.
