Conceived on Hyundai Grand i10, Xcent is likely to share striking similarities on inside and outside with the popular B segment hatchback. Auto pundits suggest that with minimal changes and an added boot, Xcent could be referred as the sedan version of Grand i10 hatchback. However, details regarding the same will unfold on March 12th, when the car will be launched in India. Of late car makers have been developing the hatchback and sedan siblings sharing same platform, Swift hatchback and Dzire compact sedan is the best example for the same.

Rumours suggest that Hyundai could power Xcent petrol and diesel variants with a1.2 litre Kappa petrol and 1.1 litre three cylinder diesel motor respectively. These are the same engines which currently power Grand i10 petrol and diesel variants. Possibility of a 1.4 litre CRDI powertrain is also on cards. Power will be transmitted to the front wheels via a five speed manual transmission; speculations are rife that the company could also roll out an automatic transmission.

With so many cars coming in the compact sedan segment, customers are going to have ample choice to pick from.
