The compact sedan is exported from India.

Laxmi InterContinental Pvt. Ltd., the sole distributor of Hyundai vehicles for Nepal, launched the Xcent compact sedan earlier this week. Needless to say, the Xcent in Nepal is exported from Hyundai’s Chennai facility which is the sole manufacturing site for the car.

Three variants of the Xcent are offered in Nepal – Base, S and SX – priced between NPR 2.49 million to NPR 3.19 million (INR 15.51 lakhs to INR 19.9 lakhs). Based on the Grand i10’s platform, the Xcent is classified as a sub-4 meter sedan in India, and competes with the likes of the Honda Amaze, Maruti Dzire and the recently launched Tata Zest.
