In India, the 2017 Hyundai Xcent facelift will compete with the new Maruti Swift, Honda Amaze and upcoming Tata Tigor.
All New Hyundai Xcent Facelift 2017 is ready to hit showrooms in coming April. While the current model is majorly popular among Travelers, the updated model of the sub-compact sedan will focus on individual costumer. Therefore, the 2017 year model could be restyled modishly to appeal target buyers. Besides subtle cosmetic updates, the Car will see a range of new features, and a new 74bhp, 1.2-litre diesel engine instead of the existing 1.1-litre motor.
