Early next year, Hyundai will launch the Grand i10 facelift in India. It will be based on the 2017 Hyundai i10 facelift that was revealed a few months back. The Grand i10’s sedan derivative will also receive a similar treatment. While the front will be identical to the Grand i10 facelift, the rear could undergo major changes. The 2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift launch will happen in the first half of 2017. Read on for more on the new Hyundai Grand i10 2017-
2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Launch Date
|Model||Expected Launch Date|
|Launch Date||Q1 2017|
The Xcent facelift will be launched at least a couple of months after the launch of its hatchback sibling. Until now, test mules of the 2017 Grand i10 facelift have been spotted on public roads. Our guess is that the 2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift launch will take place by the end of the first half of 2017.
For 2017, Hyundai is will also launch the new Verna and Tucson AWD variants in India. Their much-awaited compact SUV will come to us in early 2018.

New Hyundai Xcent 2017 facelift could be slightly more fuel efficient. Petrol variants could return a claimed mileage of almost 20 KMPL while the efficiency of diesel Xcent could touch 25 KMPL.
2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Exterior
Like the current model, the front end of the upcoming Xcent facelift will be identical to that of the upcoming Grand i10 facelift. Which means styling of the new Xcent 2017 will be inspired from the European i10 that was unveiled recently. It gets a new ‘cascading’ front grille design with round LED DRLs. There are new fog lamp enclosures as well with projector fog lamps. It will be interesting to see what Hyundai does with the rear end of the Xcent. We’re not a big fan of the rear end styling of the current model. Expect Hyundai to give the Xcent facelift new tail lamps, new bumper and maybe some additional chrome detailing.
Other additions could include a new set of alloys and chrome detailing. We’ll be able to give you more details once we get our hands on spy shots of the upcoming 2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift.
2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Interior
The interiors of the Xcent will be carried over largely unchanged. As can be seen in the image above, for the most part, the cabin is identical to the car on sale in India currently. However, the interior could get new colour and trims. The only visible difference here is the addition of a touchscreen infotainment system. This unit is likely to make it to the 2017 Hyundai Xcent. It will support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The cabin will be as spacious as before and boast the same class leading levels of quality and fit and finish.
2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Engines and Transmissions
The engines will be carried over from the current model. Currently, the Xcent is available with a 1.2-litre Petrol and the 1.1-litre Diesel engine. Hyundai could carry out slight retuning in order to extract a better fuel efficiency rating from these engines. Currently, the Petrol engine churns out 81 BHP while the Diesel engine outputs 70 BHP. A five speed manual transmission will be standard across the range. Petrol variants will continue with the optional 4-speed AT. The current model boasts a mileage for 19.1 KMPL for the petrol manual and 24.4 KMPL for the diesel manual variant. There could be a marginal increase in these figures once the 2017 Hyundai Xcent rolls out.
