Hyundai Xcent, the subcompact sedan from the South Korean carmaker, is set to receive a generation change early next year. The all-new model of the sedan will debut at the Delhi Auto Expo in February 2020. We have already seen multiple spy pictures of the 2020 Hyundai Xcent revealing its exterior details.
The latest set of the spy pictures show the new cascading Hyundai grille, upswept headlamps and boomerang LED DRLs that are inspired by the new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios hatchback. The sharply designed dual-tone alloy wheels, new ORVMs with integrated indicators and a shark fin antenna enhance its side appearance.
At the rear, the 2020 Hyundai Xcent features new C-shaped taillamps with LED inserts and slightly repositioned license plate holder. Interior details of the sedan are still under the wraps. We expect it to get a dashboard integrated 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It might also receive wireless charging feature, automatic climate control, rear AC vents and more. Read – 2020 Hyundai Creta Launch & Other Details Revealed
Engine setup of the 2020 Hyundai Xcent facelift will include a 1.2L petrol and a 1.2L diesel engines, sourced from the new Grand i10 Nios. Currently, the petrol motor is BS6-ready and the diesel unit is BS4-compliant. The new model of the subcompact sedan is likely to get BS6-compliant version of both the powertrains. While a 5-speed manual transmission will come as standard, an AMT gearbox will be an optional offering.
Hyundai will continue to sell the current-generation Xcent with the new model, but only for fleet operators. Prices of the 2020 Hyundai Xcent facelift are likely to start from Rs 6 lakh and go up to Rs 9 lakh. The current-generation model comes in the price range of Rs 5.81 lakh – Rs 8.79 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
