Hyundai Xcent Highlights

Hyundai Xcent Price: Hyundai Xcent prices start at Rs. 5.81 lakh for petrol and goes upto Rs. 7.82 lakh. The prices of Xcent diesel variants start at Rs. 6.73 lakh and the top-end diesel is priced at Rs. 8.75 lakh. Hyundai Xcent is available in 10 variants and 5 colours.
Xcent Engine and Specifications: 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.

Hyundai Xcent Variants

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.

Xcent Exterior and Interior

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.


If you want a balanced design, with a good feature list and equally commendable build quality, the Xcent is hard to falter. But if you aren’t a fan of how it looks or the weird seating position at the rear, and we appreciate that, your next stop should be a Maruti Suzuki showroom.

Editor's View of Hyundai Xcent

  • Upside

    Efficient and refined diesel engine, Premium interior feel, Easy to drive in the city

  • Downside

    Polarising design, Narrow cabin, Not comfortable for tall passengers

  • Our Verdict

    The Hyundai Xcent is a premium, comfortable and feature-rich compact sedan with refined and efficient engines. But it is strictly a 4-seater.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Xcent

Q. I want to purchase Hyundai Xcent VTVT S AT. Please share your experience.
  • 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 : By DHARMENDER | 1 month ago
  • Hyundai brand is good. Please check whether you are fulfilled with xcent. Do a test drive. I have a 2015 hyundai xcent S VTVT white colour car. When i bought it, it was superb. But after 3 yrs the intial torquing of the car became worse. And also the maintenance of hyundai cars are expensive. I will prefer you to buy amaze or etios because both brands are good. : By Goutham | 3 weeks ago
  • With 75PS of power and 190Nm of torque at its disposal, the Xcent is now more potent than before. It’s the same 1.2-litre diesel engine offered in the updated Grand i10 and feels very similar to use. Hit the push button starter and the motor announces its awakening with a noticeable amount of vibrations that only smoothen out once you’re on the move.Once you get going, though, in mere seconds you understand that this powertrain is ideal for the city. The clutch is light and bites early, and you can crawl ahead without actually needing to use the accelerator pedal. Dab the A-pedal and progress is quick. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
