Hyundai Xcent Vs Honda Amaze (Design and Exterior)

Since these cars have been derived from hatchbacks, the front looks exactly like the respective hatchbacks from which they have been derived. In case of Amaze, the tail section looks much better integrated with the rest of the car and the boot neither looks stubby or chopped-up. The Xcent too has a boot neatly integrated into rest of body structure but is just shy and does not look as seamless as the Amaze.

The overall styling of the taillights too matches well with other design elements in case of Amaze. The design of the taillight of the Xcent looks some confused and does not go very well with the car. At the end of the day, the looks are indeed a subjective matter and you may prefer one over the other.

It has ample amount of space for knick-knacks and comes with seven bottle holders. The quality of the plastics and overall fit and finish is decent.

The Hyundai has done a pretty decent job in the interiors department and the quality of plastics feels, overall fit and finish feels very decent too. The Xcent comes with a fully automatic climate control system which Amaze lacks even in the top end variant.

Verdict
