Hyundai Motors has confirmed that the new 2017 Xcent compact sedan will launch in India on April 20, 2017. The upcoming Hyundai compact sedan is based on the Grand i10 facelift that was launched in February this year although with a few visual tweaks. Taking cues from its hatchback sibling, the Xcent facelift is likely to receive a redesigned grille, broader grille and LED DRLs positioned in the fog-lamp section. At the rear, the model will feature a refreshed boot lid with wider, two-piece tail lamps.
On the inside, the 2017 variant is expected to feature a new 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The feature is currently available on the Grand i10- facelift.
