2017 Hyundai Xcent (facelift) – Rendering

Carries over styling changes from the Euro-spec i10.
IAB’s Shoeb R Kalania has created a rendering of the 2017 Hyundai Xcent (facelift), which features cosmetic changes seen in the Euro-spec Hyundai i10. So far, the Hyundai Grand i10 facelift has only been spotted testing on Indian roads.
The Xcent’s front fascia gets a redesigned grille with a new mesh pattern, LED DRLs integrated into the headlamp and boomerang-shaped foglamp enclosures. The black plastic side cladding has undergone a slight redesign, while the rear-end could feature minor changes.
Inside, changes are expected to be minimal. The top-end Xcent could be offered with a touchscreen display as well as Apple Carplay and Android Auto support, new seat fabric and color combination.
Its engine lineup is likely to retain the 1.2L four-cylinder petrol and 1.1L three-cylinder diesel engines. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual for both variants, while a 4-speed automatic is exclusive to the 1.2 petrol. Expect the Xcent facelift to launch by mid-2017.
