Honda Amaze Vs Hyundai Xcent
The Amaze, booted version of the Brio, is a well-proportioned and stylish sub-4 meter. It’s quite spacious from inside, and has a decent quality material. Hyundai Xcent looks attractive from the front end, but its rear styling is a bit odd. However, it offers best-in-class interior with lots of comfort-enhancing features. Honda’s compact sedan is more powerful than the Xcent. But the Xcent is a better car to drive on city and is more comfortable than its rival.
