Korean car maker Hyundai has launched a face lifted version of its compact sedan the Xcent in the market. The new Xcent looks quite different when compared to the outgoing model.

There’s a redesigned front bumper and the new signature cascade design grille with horizontal chrome slats ensures for bold and wider stance. The highlights on the front are daytime running LEDs that surround the fog lamps. And then there is the futuristic styling of the swept back headlamps.

The highlight is the new touch screen 7 inch touch screen system that is compatible with both Apple car play and Android auto. A rear parking camera is also integrated in the system. Just like how it was earlier, the Xcent continues to be sold in both Petrol and Diesel variants.

The Petrol variant has an automatic option as well. But while the 1.2 liter 83 PS Petrol motor remains the same the big change is the new Diesel engine that was recently seen in the updated Grand as well. Instead of the 1.1 liter Diesel engine the car ran on earlier, there’s a more powerful 1.2 litre 75 PS motor. Shams Naqvi gets us a first drive of the 2017 Hyundai Xcent.
