Kartik Mehta's review on Hyundai Xcent 2017 S 1.2
Year of Manufacture : 2016 | Driven no. of Kms. : 500
- Pros: Already a big fan of hyundai. And the company proved me right again. Best in class amenities provided in entry level compact sedan. I researched a lot and personally did test drive of dzire,new amaze , xcent and for a change even celerio because of its huge demand in amt version. The worst I found was so called NEW Amaze. Though the interiors have been revised but still feels of low quality when u touch it. Plus features like automatic ORVMs , parking sensors, etc you will get only in top end variant while in xcent almost everyyyything a person needs is available in mid varant only. Even amaze top variant doesnot have push start button and not even reverse camera, there is only reverse parking sensors. While dzire is a good nice car but i dont like its exterior plus boot and back seat space is less. And I already have 1 swift old shape. So there was no point of buying dzire. Moreover swift and dzire will be facelifted in 2017.So kindly wait if u only want to buy dzire or a swift and I am very much sure they would be a big hit in the market. In May 2016 company has added one more variant that is Xcent S Airbag available in both diesel and petrol and now ABS is available in all varaints. And i have bought this variant and got one driver side airbag in a mid variant compact sedan ,Just imagine. I would suggest you to take a test drive of xcent before making any choice if u want to buy a compact sedan.
- Cons: Though you have plenty of space inside cabin but the car looks quite lean from behind due to less width than its competitor like dzire and amaze. But that would be personal choice. For some it would be quite practical for city use but for some it would be a bit hindrance. The anniversary edition is of no use.
A sedan is a sedan, there is no compare with a premium or a mid segment hatchback. Though we have beautiful i20 and Baleno in premium segment and believe Xcent wont disappoint you.
