Hyundai is planning to launch a special edition of the Xcent to celebrate their 20 years in India. We have got these exclusive pictures before the official unveiling revealing the makeover for the car.
This 20th Anniversary special edition gets a few changes to the exterior and interior to add some spunk to the outgoing version of the compact sedan. The absence of alloy wheels suggests that it will be based either on the base or the S variant. The changes to the exterior include chrome highlights for the front bumper, a spoiler with integrated stop lamp on the tailgate and decals on the side. There is also a '20th Anniversary Special Edition' badge at the back.
The cabin might get new fabric mats and LED scuff plates on the doors as a part of the package. However, a unique change in the interior is the addition of a touch screen display by Blaupunkt. Currently, the standard Base variant of the Xcent doesn't get a music system and the S variant gets a 2-Din integrated system only.
There will be no changes to the powertrain of both the petrol and diesel versions of the Xcent. The petrol trim will continue to be powered by a 1.2-litre Kappa engine that produces 71bhp of power and 100Nm of torque. The diesel gets a 71bhp 1.1-litre mill and both these engines come mated to a five-speed manual gearbox.
Hyundai had earlier confirmed that these changes will be offered with the special edition at no extra cost over the regular Xcent. These distinctive touches to the overall package do enhance the appeal of the car and give buyers these extra benefits. We expect the car to go on sale soon.
