Hyundai Motor India recently launched the Grand i10 Nios compact hatchback car at an entry-level price of ₹4.99 lakh. Now, if industry sources are to be believed, the leading South Korean automobile manufacturer is planning to introduce the next-generation Xcent compact sedan, based on the Grand i10 Nios, at the 2020 Auto Expo.



The new Xcent is expected to retain much of the specifications of the Grand i10 Nios. It means that the car’s powertrain, design, and features will be similar to the compact hatchback. The new Xcent is likely to have boomerang shaped daytime running lights (DRLs), a refreshed headlamp cluster and a reworked cascading grille that can be spotted on the new Grand 10 Nios. The cabin of the new Xcent is also expected to resemble that of the Nios. Some of the features in the Xcent would include wireless phone charging, an updated touchscreen infotainment system, and a new steering wheel. The central air-conditioning vents in the Grand i10 Nios are placed below the infotainment unit.



The Hyundai Grand i10 Nios is available in both diesel and petrol engine options. The petrol motor is already BS-VI compliant. Hyundai has clarified that the current BS-IV diesel engine would be upgraded to BS-VI before the new emission standard is implemented on 1 April. The new Xcent is expected to have BS-VI compliant engines from day one. The Xcent, like the Grand i10 Nios, will be offered with an optional automated manual transmission (AMT).



Hyundai may retain the current version of the Xcent sedan for fleet operators like the Maruti Suzuki Dzire.



The new Hyundai Xcent is expected to command an ex-showroom price between ₹6 lakh and ₹9 lakh. Besides Maruti Suzuki Dzire, it will lock horns with Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire, and Tata Tigor. The current generation Xcent is pegged between ₹5.81 lakh and ₹9.75 lakh.
