Bookings will start right after the launch. The Xcent is modelled on the same lines as the Dzire and Amaze- sub 4m class sedans. It has the same face as the Grand i10 and there is chrome finish on the air dam. The side profile shows a kink at the lower part.

Inside the cabin, the materials used are exactly the same as in the Grand i10 except that there is a climate control system in place of the manual AC. Hyundai has also added a rear air blower, something which is unique to sedans of this class. The boot space is also claimed to be more than the others in this segment.
