The limited-run edition commemorates the Korean automaker's twenty years of existence in India!
Hyundai India recently celebrated its twentieth anniversary in the country. To celebrate this, the automaker will launch a special edition of its compact sedan – the Xcent – and perhaps the Grand i10 as well. The changes in it are basically aesthetic enhancements, with a few additional features. One of the pictures indicates that the special edition gets full wheel cover, signifying that it will be based on the second trim – ‘S’ – because the SX and SX (O) feature alloy wheels.
Changes at a glance
At the front, the hexagonal grille features chrome inserts, much like the Ford Figo Aspire
The rear fenders feature red-coloured decals around its tail lights
At the rear, it gets a new chrome applique, which runs between the tail lamps; a lip spoiler with integrated stop lamp; and a twentieth-anniversary edition branding
On the inside, the biggest change you will see is the addition of a Blaupunkt touchscreen infotainment system, which looks like an aftermarket addition
More details will come in once Hyundai officially launches the car in the country. Mechanically, as happens with all limited-run models, there will be no alterations to the Xcent’s engine line-up (Grand i10 too). The vehicle will continue with its 1.2-litre Kappa Dual VTVT naturally aspirated petrol and 1.1-litre U2 CRDi turbo diesel. Five-speed manual will be standard while the petrol version will also offer a four-speed automatic.
The vehicle seems to have been spied at some dealer stockyard, indicating that the launch is imminent.
