Hyundai has just launched the Xcent compact sedan in India. Unveiled a day prior to the Auto Expo 2014, sales of the Hyundai Xcent will commence from today.
Essentially, the Xcent is the sedan version of the Grand i10. In order to benefit from the Indian small car excise duty, the Xcent measures under 4 meters in length. The car is available in three trim levels – Base, S and SX – in all of six colours.
The Xcent measures 3,995 mm long, 1,660 mm wide and 1,520 mm tall with a wheelbase of 2,425 mm. The car is mounted on 15-inch alloy wheels with 175/60 section tires.
The petrol engine powering the car is the same 1.2-liter four-cylinder engine producing 83 PS @ 6,000 RPM and 11.6 kgm of torque @ 4,000 RPM. It comes matched to a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox (optional on the S and SX variants), with a mileage of 19.1 kpl for the manual transmission variant.
The diesel Xcent is powered by the 1.1-liter three-cylinder engine producing 72 PS @ 4,000 RPM and 18.4 kgm of torque @ 1,750 – 2,500 RPM. The diesel is only available with a 5-speed manual transmission and it has a mileage of 24.4 kpl.
The interiors of the Xcent are identical to the Grand i10 on which its based. However, the top-end grades of the Xcent get features such as a fully automatic AC system and power folding mirrors (these are not found in the Grand i10).
