What Makes The Xcent Popular Among Buyers?
Here are some important aspects which make the Hyundai Xcent so popular amongst buyers.
Exterior Styling and Design –
The 2018 Hyundai Xcent has received a pretty decent exterior upgrade. The front grille is now shaped like a large hexagon with chrome linings and the company logo.
The headlamps are now elongated with LED DRLs on them. The rounded fog lamps have also been replaced with a more sharp looking one which is now horizontally stretched.
Interior Features –
The interiors of the Hyundai Xcent are attractive as well. Now they have a more urban and premium look, thanks to the dual tone black and beige colour combination.
If you get the high-end trims, then you will receive a leather coated steering wheel.
The infotainment system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The steering wheel has the control buttons also. There is ample storage of 407 litres that gives quite a lot of space for the passengers to adjust and sit comfortably. Who does not want a comfortable ride home or to the office?
Engine Variants –
The 2018 Hyundai Xcent comes in both diesel and petrol variants in India. The diesel variants house 1.2-litre U2 diesel engine, that is capable of producing 74HP of power and is integrated with a 5-speed manual transmission.
On the other hand, the petrol variants have a 1.2-litre Kappa engine which produces 83HP of power and also has the 5-speed manual gearbox. So Hyundai is offering options to both sets of customers who prefer different usage of fuel.

The Hyundai Xcent is a favourite among the Indians because the car provides smooth and efficient performance along with a subtle control on any surface.
The suspension system absorbs most of the shocks and gives the passengers a comfortable ride. Along with that, the braking system of the vehicle is decent as well.
Coming with a fuel-efficient engine, the Xcent delivers 18.2 kmpl on the petrol variant and 25.4 kmpl with the diesel variant.
Final Verdict – the Hyundai Xcent is a compact and sharp looking sedan that Indians can get at a budget-friendly price. It has well-balanced features in every aspect of the vehicle from interiors to under the hood features.
No doubt that due to such flawless features on board, the Xcent is still so much popular among the Indians.
