2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift — Facelifted 2017 Hyundai Xcent Arrives in India on March 2017. Hyundai Xcent finally will be refreshed for the first time since its first launch in 2014, and it will enter India market in 2017. While the number of monthly sale for this car is very impressive, most of them are bought by taxi providers. With this facelift, Hyundai wants to attract more private buyers to increase the sales even more.
Specs of 2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift
Interior, Exterior redesign
The nose design of new 2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift is taken from the recently launched Euro-spec Grand i10. It includes new front bumper, revised headlamp, and fog lamp as well as the unique hexagonal grille. And surprisingly, the new nose looks perfect in Xcent and gives the car more personality.
But the most noteworthy upgrade is in its rear part. Xcent has been heavily criticized due to its small tail lamps and rear design that is just too ordinary and lack of visual character. It seems like Hyundai has listened well to those critics because the upcoming 2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift comes with bigger tail lamps that will grab attention, especially during the night. Furthermore, the rear bumper, fender, and boot lid are also revised to give the car more road presence.
While the exterior is majorly upgraded, the cabin only receives some simple tweaks, and most of them are given to the higher end trims. New touchscreen infotainment system will grace the dashboard in the upper spec model with audio and video navigation. Moreover, Apple Car Play and Android Auto connectivity are also exclusive to high spec models.
Some safety equipment and techs such as Anti-lock Braking System, rear park sensor as well as retractable outside rear view mirror and dual airbags are standard across all trim levels.
