New models to get updated styling and new equipment.
The 2017 Hyundai i10 (facelift) just had its public debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. In the coming months, the Indian Grand i10 and Xcent will receive a facelift. According to web reports, both 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 (facelift) and 2017 Hyundai Xcentm will be launched in early 2017.
It’s unknown if Hyundai’s B-segment twins will launch together, but majority of the changes are expected to be the same. The facelifted Grand i10 is already being tested in India.
The facelift is expected to bring updated fascias similar to that of the European i10. Changes should include sportier grille and bumper, redesigned side mouldings and new wheel design. Updates at the rear should be tweaked tail lights and bumper, and new fog lamps.
Inside, both 2017 Hyundai Grand i10 and 2017 Hyundai Xcent may feature a new colour scheme for the dashboard, and gain a touchscreen entertainment system. The Xcent is already available with an automatic climate control system, while Grand i10 may be offered with this feature beginning with the facelift. Both cars will likely continue with the Kappa 1.2-litre Dual VTVT petrol and U2 1.1-litre CRDi diesel engines and 5-speed manual and 4-speed automatic transmissions.
