Hyundai Xcent is a 5 seater sedan car launched at a base price of Rs. 5.81 lakh in April 2017 by Hyundai in India. Xcent is available in both petrol and diesel . Xcent petrol is powered by 1197cc engine claiming mileage of 20.14kmpl and Xcent diesel is powered by 1186cc engine claiming mileage of 25.4kmpl. Xcent also comes with automatic transmission. It is available in 10 variants and 5 colours.
Hyundai Xcent Latest Updates
An RTO document reveals that Hyundai could offer the Xcent with a CNG powertrain. It will available in the mid-spec S variant and will be available for both private and fleet buyers. The Xcent CNG will come with a BS4-compliant 1.2-litre Kappa powertrain that develops 66PS of power and 98Nm of torque in pure CNG mode. The powertrain develops 82PS of power and 110Nm of torque in petrol mode. The Xcent CNG is expected to debut at the Auto Expo 2020.
The 2020 Hyundai Xcent is expected to debut at the 2020 Auto Expo and is likely to cost more than the current car which is priced from Rs 5.72 lakh to Rs 8.77 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).
Where the petrol motor is buttery smooth, the diesel is equally gutsy. Both motors are 1.2-litre units, but while the petrol produces 83PS/114Nm, the diesel generates 75PS/190Nm. A 4-speed automatic or a 5-speed manual transmission is offered with the petrol engine. The diesel, on the other hand, is available only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. No points for guessing, it is the diesel that’s more frugal of the two. Its ARAI figure is rated at 25.4kmpl, compared to the 20.14kmpl for the petrol engine. Sure, the engines aren’t the strongest in the segment but they compensate by delivering one of the best fuel efficiency figures in the segment.
The variant nomenclature reads E, E+, S, SX and SX (O). Further bifurcations amongst these variants cover the choice of automatic and manual transmissions and, metallic and non-metallic body paints. Let’s make it perfectly clear that the entry-level E variants aren’t recommended. The attractive price might lure you but it doesn’t have much to offer on the comfort, features or convenience front. If you’re after features like the fancy infotainment system, ABS and height adjustable driver’s seat, you’d need to start your evaluation from the SX variant. The range-topping SX (O) is where you’ll get features like 15-inch alloys, shark-fin antenna and automatic climate control.
The design is not exactly outlandish. That said, it is well proportioned and looks better in the flesh than in photographs. The large hexagonal grille flanked by swept-back headlamps gives the Xcent a distinctive look. However, the inverted-L shaped DRLs placed around the fog lamps feels like an afterthought. Apart from the swanky 15-inch alloy wheels, the side profile has little to shout about. The rear is probably the best section of the car to look at. The new wraparound split taillamps blend in nicely with the dual-tone bumper, which has built-in reflectors, and the shark-fin radio antenna sits atop the rear windshield. In short, the three-box package has enough in its kitty to flaunt about.
The dual-tone interior keeps expectations from a car of this size and price at bay. That said, it is one of the most sorted ones out there. The fit and finish is nearly on par with Germans and that’s high praise. Ergonomically, everything is placed where you’d expect it to be and the 7-inch infotainment supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There’s automatic climate control on offer too, with a dedicated vent for rear passengers, which is quite effective. The low rear seating position isn’t as comfortable as some of its rivals and the narrow width doesn’t help either. However, at 407 litres, the boot space is plentiful to gallop enough stuff for a weekend getaway for four. Also, the absence of ABS in most of the variants gets a big thumbs down from us. That said, dual airbags come as standard in all variants.
Hyundai Xcent Competitors
Honda Amaze : Honda’s workhorse is beginning to show its age. Despite the recent facelift, the Amaze fails to wow. That said, it still is among the most accommodating cars you can buy in this segment.
Ford Aspire : The oldest car in this comparison, the Aspire remains the value buy in this segment for the space, performance and comfort it offers. The age does show through; the Aspire is the only car in the segment to not get a smartphone-compatible touchscreen infotainment system. It leads the pack in terms of safety though, with features like 6-airbags and emergency assist system.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire: The new Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. The new generation has improved by leaps and bounds, and is among your best bets if you’re looking at a compact sedan.
Tata Tigor : Tata’s new sub-4 metre sedan isn’t just great to look at, it also undercuts all its rivals in terms of price. The feature list is impressive too but the lacklustre powerplants let it down. And did you know it has a larger boot than the Hyundai Creta?
Volkswagen Ameo : The Polo with a boot isn’t exactly a treat to the eye but the German build quality is certainly top notch. Plus, it is the only car in its segment to feature a 7-speed dual clutch automatic transmission, which comes mated to the most power diesel mill (110PS/250Nm) in the subcompact sedan category.

- Hyundai is one of the worst brand i have been ever gone for! I have got hyundai xcent CRDI TOP END MODEL in the month of Feb-2018, initially i felt that the car is awesome but in the 15th month from the date i bought the car, the engine of the car is failed and when i inquired for the cost of repairing the same, i have been given the quotation of 1,30,000 and as i bought it for TAXI Purpose they said that the warranty couldn't be claimed after 40,000 Kms; Whereas my vechile has driven for 62,000 Kms., but after getting every service on time at certified service center of Talwar Hyundai, the engine is failed within just 15 months, this explain the quality of Hyundai Vehicle/motors
- Depends upon your use and how active you are as driver. Build quality wise xcent is heavier than its competitors hence a better csr driving on highway with superb road grip
- Don't buy any Hyundai company car.. Hyundai car have hidden problem...you have better options than Hyundaieg. ford company car is super
- Yes, Hyundai Xcent is available in with automatic transmission i.e. Hyundai Xcent 1.2 VTVT S AT.
- No... Available only in SX model
- See owner's manual
- ONLY IN TOP
- There is nothing like best in any car, it's the purpose and features what you are looking at. Just make a list and look forward to it what you are expecting is fulfilled or not because the options you suggested are from the same manufacturer. Also variant wise there will be increase in all safety, comfort and convenience features so will the price.
- The selected cars are different in their segments. Grand i10 where is a hatchback car that has really good interiors and can be used easily for city driving. On the contrary Hyundai Xcent is a compact sedan that offers extra boot space with a more spacious cabin that gives an impressive driving experience in comparison. If you want a balanced design, with a good feature list and equally commendable build quality, the Xcent can be a better pick here. Rest we would recommend taking the test drive of both the cars so that you can get a complete idea regarding the comfort and ease of driving.
- None of these two are best but out of these two Grand i10 is better.

xcent is a overall good.. but Hyundai company have some hiden problem that sometime engine given very poor performance like after 50-90 km driver car given starting vibration..engine power feel like 150 CC bike....but Hyundai never accept this problem therefore after my this Xcent car I will given Hyundai good bye...👋 because this is a cheater company....stupit and we need kick out hyundai..we know Hyundai will never overtake Suzuki....Suzuki build quality is poor but engine performance is delightful..sorry Hyundai you are a cheater
I use the car as a family car. Run in villages and small contry roads. Very good comfort and good handling. I have covered 900 km on stretch with fully loaded car. Still very good comfort. You get little tired after 400 km in driving seat. Otherwise very happy. Got an average of 17.5 per km when I take trip from nagpur to vaishnodevi via delhi gurgaon and that too in hot scorching summer with full ac on and speed always above 100 kmphr. I am happy.
Very poor performance, created a lot of trouble, service center taken long time in repair, actually from very beginning I faced engine check problems ,ultimately repaired in Hyundai service center,I personally not satisfied from this car, its shape is not good. I suggest not to purchase this Car
It has been only six months and the car is driven around 3000 km. The experience is quite nice, though the car is mostly seen used by cab aggregators, but it still a good option for the family. Interestingly, the car offers good comfort and has a decently well driving dynamics.
XCENT IS EXCELLENT LOW PRICE THAN AMAZE, BALENO, DZIRE, AMEO AND TIGOR HIGH FEATURES REAR AC WINDS REAR ARM REST EXCELLENT BOOT SPACE REMOTE BOOT OPEN AUTOMATIC. NEGATIVE POINTS IS LOW HEIGHT AND REAR SEATS THIRD PERSON NOT COMFORTABLE.
Uphill pull power is very weak. Tried driving down from Mangalore to Bangalore. Also mileage is not as what was offered by the company.
Nice one it's family car .i like this car
nice car, excellent condition.but i need a 7 seater car ,so I want to sell it
Handling is great .value for money in its segment
my FAVOURITE car , I just love the comfort, style and drive
