The changes attributed to the facelift will be sourced from the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10, which include sportier bumpers with air curtain inlets, signature Cascading grille, LED daytime running lights, new alloy wheels/wheel covers, reshaped boot lid and large wraparound tail lamps.

Inside, the only major change here is the new 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink connectivity, which will be standard in Asta models. To work with virtual assistants, the steering wheel will get a dedicated button for voice commands. Like the Grand i10 Sportz, the Xcent Sportz may get a 5.0-inch touchscreen audio system as standard.
