Hyundai launched Xcent compact sedan in India at a price of Rs. 4.66 Lakh. The C-segment sedan is in its boom and why not when you get benefits on excise duty. Precisely, excise duty on sub-four-meter cars is half that on the larger vehicles. Xcent is much like Grand i-10 except a boot slapped on after the c-pillar. The boot, however gels nicely with the design line unlike Dzire where one can easily distinguish that its Swift with a boot stuck-on.
