Hyundai has unveiled its Grand i10 based sedan and has called it the Xcent. As many would be aware, one of Hyundai's highest and longest selling car in India was the Accent which was taken off the shelves last year. Clearly, the Accent must have had a handsome fan following for Hyundai to name the Grand i10 sedan the Xcent.

 

The Xcent which uses the same platform as the Grand i10 will also come with similar engine options as the hatchback - one petrol (1.2-litre kappa 2) and one diesel (1.1-litre). We expect the power rating for the engines to remain unchanged as well. The Hyundai Xcent will also be available with manual and automatic gearbox options in petrol and a 5-speed manual on the diesel.

On the inside, the design has been carried forward almost as is from the hatchback and given the already comprehensive equipment list the Grand i10 comes with, similar list of features will hold the Xcent in good stead in its class against the Dzire and the Amaze. It gets rear AC vents, smart key push button entry and start, 15in alloys, auto folding electric ORVMs and one touch trunk opening. It will also get a cooled glovebox, steering minted controls and Bluetooth telephony. In terms of safety, the top of the line version oft he Xcent to be badged Asta, will get abs, dual airbags and rear parking assist as standard. 

 

The Hyundai Xcent will be launched at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo tomorrow and the sales for the Xcent will begin soon after.
