Hyundai had recently launched the Xcent facelift, their popular sub-4 metre compact sedan, at an introductory price tag of Rs 5.38 lakh for the petrol powered variants and Rs 6.28 lakh for the diesel powered variants (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Xcent facelift receives updates on the lines of Hyundai's last facelift – the new Grand i10. The changes include the addition of Hyundai's signature Cascade design grille, revised front bumper that now incorporates fog lamps with LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

The rear profile of the car has got a revised two-tone bumper design, which, with the help of reflectors and the large chrome strip give the car a wider stance than before. The two piece wrap around tail lamps is also new.

From the side, the Hyundai Xcent remains the same profile except for the addition of a segment first shark fin antenna and new diamond cut alloy wheels.

Under the hood there is the 1.2-litre petrol engine that can deliver 83 PS of power and 11.6 kgm of torque. The diesel engine, on the other hand, is a new 1.2-litre unit, which replaces the old 1.1-litre unit, that can deliver 75 PS of power and 19.4 kgm of torque. The claimed fuel efficiency for the petrol variant is 20.14 kmpl for petrol and 25.4 kmpl.

Transmission duties are done by a 5-speed manual gearbox and there's also an optional 4-speed transmission available only with the petrol engine.

The interiors of the new Xcent remain similar except that now they come in a two tone beige layout. There's the addition of a mobile phone dock that comes with built-in charging ports. The biggest attraction inside the car though has to be the new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink.

Hyundai also announced that the new Xcent will come with dual airbags as standard across all variants.
