Hyundai launched the Grand i10 facelift in India in February 2016. It is based on the 2017 Hyundai i10 facelift that was revealed last year. 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. Based on recent spy shots, the tail is set to get a very comprehensive makeover. 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||First Half 2017|
The Xcent facelift will be launched at least a couple of months after the launch of its hatchback sibling. Test mules of the 2017 Xcent facelift have been spotted on public roads. Our guess is that the 2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift launch will take place in the second quarter of 2017.
In 2017, Hyundai is will also launch the new Verna and AWD variants of the Tucson in India. Their much-awaited compact SUV will come to us in early 2018.

With the launch of the 2017 Grand i10, the starting price came down. However, the top end variants got more expensive. That could be the case with the 2017 Xcent as well. Prices of the high end trims of the Hyundai Xcent could witness a slight increase. This will be majorly due to the addition of new features. Currently, the base petrol model of the Xcent costs Rs. 5.42 lakh. The top-end Diesel model is priced at Rs. 8.06 lakh. Expect the upcoming new model Xcent to cost about 20,000-30,000 more than the current model.

2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Specifications
|Engine Options||1.2-litre Petrol||1.2-litre Diesel|
|Max. Power||81 bhp @ 6000 RPM||74 bhp|
|Peak Torque||114 Nm @ 4000 RPM||190 Nm|
|Transmission Options||5-Speed Manual or 4-Speed Automatic||5-Speed Manual|
The facelift will not only feature cosmetic updates but a new diesel engine as well. Instead of the current 1.1 L, the new model Xcent will get a 1.2 L Diesel and so, the specifications will also change. This 1.2 L diesel is the same one that powers the new Grand i10. It will continue with the 1.2 L engine. Both engines get a 5-speed manual transmission as standard. The 1.2 L Petrol is also available with an optional 4-speed automatic transmission.
2017 Hyundai Xcent Facelift Mileage
|ARAI Mileage (estimate)|
|Hyundai Xcent Petrol Manual||19 KMPL|
|Hyundai Xcent Petrol Automatic||17 KMPL|
|Hyundai Xcent Diesel Manual||25 KMPL|
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 new Grand i10 facelift. It gets a new ‘cascading’ front grille design. DRLs will be placed next to the new 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. Based on the recent spy shots, the Xcent facelift will feature new, split tail lamps. The rear bumper and bootlid detailing will also be new.
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 new touchscreen infotainment system. This unit has also made it to the 2017 Hyundai Grand i10. It supports 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 petrol engine will be carried over from the current model. However, Hyundai could carry out slight retuning in order to extract a better fuel efficiency rating from the 1.2 L Petrol. Currently, the Petrol engine churns out 81 BHP. There will be a new 1.2 L diesel engine on offer that will replace the existing 1.1 L unit. It is more powerful and produces more torque as well. 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.
