Hyundai will soon be launching the facelifted version of the Grand i10 and cars have already reached dealerships. Since the Xcent is based on the Grand, it too will receive a facelift, based on the design changes that you can see on the Grand i10. The Xcent has been on sale since 2014 without any update.
Here are what we believe, are the first images of the new vehicle that has been spotted testing. While the vehicle that was spotted was highly camouflaged, a few things are clear about the new Xcent.
LooksFor starters, the vehicle will get an all-new tail lamp cluster, which can be seen in the images. While the current one is a small unit, the new one will feature a much larger one. Other changes will include a new grill up front, in line with what is on offer on the new Grand i10, new fog lamp housing and new LED DRLs. This one also may get a new alloy wheel pattern.
On the inside, the dashboard layout isn’t expected to change, however there will be addition of more features. This one will get a new touch screen system that will support Android Auto and Apple Car play. It will also get a reverse camera. The Xcent is already well loaded and this will just make it a better proposition.
While the petrol engine will be the same 1.2 liter unit which is on duty on the current Xcent, the diesel one will feature an update. While the current diesel on offer is a 1.1 liter unit, the new version will get a larger 1.2 liter unit, albeit a 3-cylinder one only. There are rumours as well that the facelift will get an all-new AMT, which is something we will have to wait to find out about.
The vehicle is expected to launch sometime later this year, near the festive season.
