The all-new Hyundai Xcent is nearly identical to the sibling Hyundai Grand i10 as they have been built on the same wheelbase of 2,425 mm. The front fascia shows the swept-back headlamps, chrome-plated radiator grille and trapezoidal air dam incorporated on body-coloured front bumpers.
The side profile is heightened with chrome-garnished door handles and wheel arches affixed with silver alloy wheels measuring 14 inches. The rear section seems to be tacked on to the rest of the structure as an addition. However, unlike Maruti Swift Dzire, the boot never appears as an afterthought. The boot looks a bit tamed while the smaller yet elegant tail lamps give a relatively fresh look to the rear. Overall, the car poses a neat and clean look expressing the Fluidic design philosophy of the company.
