Earlier, ABS was offered only in the top two high-end versions of the Xcent, now even the base versions, irrespective of petrol or diesel get ABS as standard. While we were expecting Hyundai to also offer the touch screen system on the top-end of the Xcent, the manufacturer seems to have planned this update for later.
Prospective buyers of the Eon might be disappointed to know that the D-Lite+ trim of the Eon misses out on the body-coloured bumpers now. It gets black bumpers, while the chrome grille has also been replaced with a body-coloured unit. The higher Era+ variant also loses out on the central locking system, which means we can expect a reduction in the price of these variants soon.
Hyundai has updated these features on their official website, but has not updated whether we will see any changes in the prices as yet. It is a good inititive by the manufacturer to offer ABS across all variants as a safety feature. The addition of anti-lock braking system (ABS) helps prevent the wheels from locking up to avoid uncontrolled skidding and eventually avoiding an accident. We hope more manufacturers pick up this safety addition across more cars in their portfolio.
