I am confused to choose a car between Hyundai Xcent 1.2 and DZire 1.2, which would be a better choice?

The petrol models of Maruti Suzuki DZire and Hyundai Xcent are powered by 1.2 liter engines and they produce almost same power and torque output. The claimed mileage of DZire 1.2 is 22 kmpl while of Xcent is 19.1 kmpl.
Look wise, Xcent has an edge as it looks more premium. Dimensionally both cars have almost same length and height, but DZire has more width that translates to a better rear seat space. The quality of materials and plastics is bit better in the XCent. The softly sprung suspension of Xcent offers a decent ride but you do feel some of the bumps and potholes occasionally while the suspension of Baleno has been tuned in such a way that it doesn’t compromise on comfort but yet is stiff enough to make the drive involving.
In my opinion, if you preference is for driving dynamics, then you should opt for Suzuki DZire but if you prefer premium look and better interiors, then go for Xcent. Though you can’t go wrong with any of the cars as both are good value for money.
