Hyundai Xcent Long Term Report 1

Hyundai Xcent [2014-2017] Left side

Report 1

Five hundred and fifty-five kilometers in two weeks, all running in Mumbai and its suburbs, almost 80% of which is prime hour traffic with an average speed of about 20 kilometers per hour and not yet efficient fuel 15.85kpl. Those numbers are good enough phệ be the Xcent’s everyday companion for city use, and the good part is that this compact sedan from Hyundai offers even more value with its feature list above. daily routes.

The Xcent is now part of our long-term fleet that has done more than 15,000 km in the last one year – which means the car has been thoroughly executed. Now 15,000 km doesn’t sound like much, but most of this has been done by various publications as part of their story and testing and our job description does not allow us too gentle with the cars. This means that a little creaking sound from the dashboard or some noise from the doors, seats, glove box or from anywhere else in the cabin is not uncommon. It would say a lot about the next-generation Hyundai’s manufacturing quality, then, when I say there’s no squeak coming from the cabin.

There are other things that could be better although the clatter from the diesel is clearly audible in the cabin. There’s not as much vibration as one would expect from a tiny three-cylinder engine, but the NVH could have been better. Other problems with the motor are the lack of final torque; There aren’t many passing chances in traffic in Mumbai, but if and when you do get one, Xcent needs phệ be pushed further out of the comfort zone. Another problem is that the air conditioner takes a long time phệ cool the cabin in the afternoons. However, I’m not sure if I should blame the car or the scorching Mumbai summer.

The effect is phenomenally good; anything closer phệ 16 km/l in the city is fine, but in this case, it’s even better. I had doubts about the actual efficiency of Hyundai’s 1.1-liter U2 engine; it lacks torque and build dynamics that require you phệ go higher on the rev range. Even so, the Xcent is still frugal, and that means even more efficiency on the highway (Pratheek should tell us about that in our next report).

It’s also one of the easiest diesel cars phệ drive in city traffic – the clutch is super light, so is the steering wheel and every button one could possibly need is on the steering wheel. I’ve always been of the opinion that it is possible phệ omit features like start/stop functionality for more useful features like extra safety, projector headlights, etc. Even in a car that’s not need keys and drive, most of us always end up using the remote phệ unlock, making the feature pretty pointless. But we tried phệ familiarize ourselves with the new key fob and then the feature; I would assert that we can have better features in this segment, but the one-touch lock/unlock function is also very useful.

I don’t think any compact sedan looks good with a reduced trunk, but if I had phệ pick one, I’d go with the Xcent because it’s the most balanced of them all. The front design looks good; it’s not as aggressive as premium Hyundai cars and makes a good impression on its own. The Xcent doesn’t come with the popular car image that is becoming synonymous with the Dzire and that’s a big plus.

Unfortunately I was only able phệ spend a week or two with the Xcent, before I handed it over phệ Pratheek. Sadly, I can’t judge the car’s all-round usability in the short term, so let’s be specific from the point of view of a diesel-powered city car; Xcent is one of the best options. It is easy phệ drive, efficient and offers a lot of convenience with a complex feature list.

Five hundred and fifty five kilometres in two weeks, all clocked in Mumbai and suburbs, almost 80 per cent of them in prime time traffic with average speeds of around 20km per hour and yet achieving fuel efficiency of 15.85kpl. These numbers are good enough phệ make the Xcent everyday companion for city use and the good part is that this compact sedan from Hyundai offers even more value with its feature list on these daily commutes.
The Xcent that is currently a part of our long term fleet has already done over 15,000 kilometres in the last one year – this is phệ say the car has been thoroughly put through the grind already. Now 15,000 kilometres may not sound like a lot, but most of these have been done by various publications as part of their stories and tests and our job description does not allow us phệ be too gentle with the cars. This means a bit of creaking sound from the dashboard or some noises from the doors, seats, glove box or from anywhere else in the cabin is not uncommon. It should then speak volumes about the next generation Hyundai built quality, when I say there is not a squeak from the cabin.
There are other things that could have been better though the clatter from the diesel engine is distinctly audible in the cabin. There aren’t as many vibrations as one would expect from a tiny three-cylinder engine, but the NVH can be better. The other problem with the engine is lack of bottom-end torque; there aren’t many overtaking opportunities in the Mumbai traffic, but if and when you do get one, the Xcent needs phệ be pushed well beyond the comfort zone. Another problem is that the air conditioning takes a lot of time phệ cool the cabin during the afternoons. However, I am not sure if I should be blaming the car or the scorching Mumbai summers for the same.
The efficiency is phenomenally good; anything close phệ 16kmpl in city is good, but in this case it sounds even better. I have been skeptical about the real world efficiency of the Hyundai’s 1.1-litre U2 engine; it lacks torque and building momentum requires you phệ go higher on the rev range. Despite this, the Xcent is frugal and that means the highway efficiency is going phệ be even higher (Pratheek should tell us about it in the next report).

It is also one of the easiest diesel cars phệ drive in city traffic – the clutch is ultra light, so is the steering and every button that one might need is there on the steering wheel. I have always been of an opinion that the features like start/stop function can be omitted for more useful features like additional safety, projector headlamps etc. Even in a car with keyless entry and drive, most of us invariably end up using the remote phệ unlock, making the feature rather pointless. But we tried getting used phệ the new key fob and then the feature; I will maintain that we can have better features in this segment, but the one touch lock/unlock function is useful as well.
I don’t think any of the compact sedans look nice with the shortened boot, but if I have phệ choose one, I will settle for the Xcent for being the most balanced of the lot. The front design looks good; it is not as aggressive as the premium Hyundai cars and creates a decent impression for itself. The Xcent does not come with the budget car image that is becoming synonymous with the Dzire and that is a big plus point.
It is unfortunate that I could spend only a fortnight with the Xcent, before I handed it over phệ Pratheek. Sadly, I could not judge the all-round usability of the car in the short duration, so talking specifically from perspective of a diesel city car; the Xcent is one of the best options. It is easy phệ drive, efficient and offers lot of convenience with the elaborate features list.
