2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift surface
19 April 2017 - IndianAutosBlog
A Team-BHP reader has acquired more images of the 2017 Hyundai Xcent (facelift) at a dealership stockyard ahead of its launch on Thursday, 20 April.
This is the first major change for the Xcent after its introduction in 2014.
Most changes are cosmetic, such as a new hexagonal grille with chrome slats and bezel, horizontal foglamps beside LED DRLs, revised bumpers, new 15-inch alloy wheels in the top-end model, new wraparound taillamps, reshaped boot lid with a chrome garnish on the outside.
Hyundai has also updated the feature list of the Xcent with the new 7-inch AVN touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink and Voice Recognition, Shark Fin antenna, smartphone holder and alternator management system.
However, Hyundai has also deleted a few features across the grades E, E+, S, SX and SX (O). For instance, ABS is no longer standard in base models, while the S grade loses driver-seat height adjustment and body side moulding, and the SX/SX(O) grades lose 1GB memory storage and auto-dimming IRVM.
Images of the Xcent at a dealership confirmed yesterday that it gets the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10's 1.2L 3-cyl turbo diesel engine, and the petrol variant retains the 1.2L 4-cyl Kappa unit. A 5-speed manual will be standard on both models, while a 4-speed automatic is exclusive to the petrol model.
