@PapaBravo you can buy the tickets online from bookmyshow.com and collect them at the expo physically. Please carry your credit card from which you book the tickets.

That makes sense. But Xcent? I am sure that if they had put in even a fraction of the effort that they seem to have put in the actual car, it could have been a lot better. I still canít get over the fact that I might be considering something called Xcent as my next car.

Well people do buy the X-trail, X-terra, XUV-500, X3, Xsara then people would probably not have much of a problem with Xcent!


Edit: I missed out X-Y-lo

Me, for one, will buy car with any name as long as its 'xciting'. We have quite a few weird named cars in the market but their success or failures have hardly anything to do with the names.

Every month, tens of thousands of people spend their hard earned money on a car that they've consciously decided to buy, and it's called the 'Dzire'. 5000 people who did not want that, got themselves a car called the 'Amaze' instead.

While brand names are important in building the right image, I believe it's good marketing and proper service backup that makes all the difference.

Well,at least this name will remove the ambiguity of pronunciation.
So often heard this, " Tell the driver to get the Ascent. "
An educated one usually brought back the HT supplement.

They should have named it Axcent. With Xcent, people will pronounce it as ex-cent.

Is there any special criteria(like people from Auto industry or something) for entering during the Business Hours in Auto Expo?
Or anyone with a 500 rupees business ticket can enter in the business hours?

I am planning to visit the Auto Expo in business hours to avoid the mad rush in public hours.

There is no special criteria. Only ticket rates are higher to attract serious visitors only.

No,i don't think so there is any special criteria. If there would have been one, 500/- tickets would have been not be available on bookmyshow/metro stations.

Mad rush? how bad is it? I am planning to visit on the 8th.

How does 'Duster' sound as a car name?

Name is immaterial, since they have discontinued Accent and they can't use accent , hence the Xcent title.

It was rightly pointed out that most of times people would mispronounce Accent as Ascent!
