The new-generation Hyundai Xcent 2019 and Hyundai Grand i10 2019 are already under development. The new Hyundai Xcent 2019 should be coming in by 2019-20. Unkike its hatchback sibling the Grand i10, the Xcent is yet to make its mark. It has to become a phenominal success for Hyundai. The Hyundai Xcent 2019 will be coming next year. The company has announced the launch of eight new products in India till 2020, of which 5 will be new-generation vehicles. 5 new cars should be coming in next year with the Hyundai Xcent 2019 being a part of the new-generation of cars.
Hyundai will want this car to become an important part of its portfolio and take the fight to the doorstep of the Honda Amaze and Maruti Dzire who have been recently updated. We shall in the future do a comparison in which you can find out more.
The current Xcent was launched at the 2014 Auto Expo and it got its facelift in 2017. The new car should have a all new platform which will be shared with Kia Motors. This new platform will be wider, offer longer wheelbase and will be more flexible. The Hyundai Xcent 2019 will offer more features and new, better performing engines too. This car is also going to be made keeping in mind the Hyundai Xcent 2019’s export to South America and other regions.
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Design
The Xcent should get more in line with the current design language in Hyundai cars. We will see sleeker, crisper lines and reduced bulges. We could see things like projector headlamps and LED tail lamps from its elder brother, the Verna, make their way onto this car. With width increasing and a more proportionate stance, tyre sizes could go up to 16-inches. There might be even a good chance that the keyless-entry-system will come offered on lower models. It will be interesting to see what kind of roof line the Hyundai Xcent 2019 comes with. It will all depend on the Hyundai Grand i10 2019’s design and if it retains it tallboy structure.
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Interiors
We expect the cabin to be very fresh with a lot of hand me downs from the Verna and Elantra. We hope expect features like ventilated seats and a sunroof come through in this update. But features like wireless charging wouldn’t be bad. If there is a automatic coming with the Hyundai Xcent 2019 it could be possible that it gets paddle-shifters behind the steering wheel. Added features that will make it great would be cruise control, something the Honda Amaze gets but not the class-leading Maruti DZire.
Seat fabrics will get better and so will the material. We hope to see a good interior done in piano black with none of the cars in the segment having one. We can expect leather seats to come as an option and also a increase in airbags. The only compact sedan to have 6 airbags as of now is the Ford Aspire. There will be a leather wrapped steering wheel. The center console will have a bigger touchscreen and the update will have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other normal features like automatic climate control, a cooled glove box and loads of storage features should come without saying with the Hyundai Xcent 2019.
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Engine and Transmission
Better more refined 1.2-litre engines are to be expected. The Hyundai Xcent 2019 will have diesel and petrol options with both manual and automatic gearboxes on offer. With the Santro we know there will be the AMT gearbox making its way into the Hyundai stable but will it be used on the Hyundai Xcent 2019? We don’t know yet. The engines will be better and more refined than the current generation.
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Variants
There will be the same variants of E, E+, s, SX and SX (O) available. In terms of features we hope the cars are going to get more equipment further down the line. The Hyundai Xcent 2019 also comes with an expectation that features like ABS, EBD and airbags as standard in the car.
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Price
With the current prices in mind we can expect the Hyundai Xcent 2019’s E variant to have a price of say Rs. 6.30 lakhs (on-road Mumbai) and the SX (O) going up to Rs. 8.5 lakhs(on-road Mumbai).
Hyundai Xcent 2019 Competition
There is a lot of completion in this segment with cars like the Maruti Dzire and Honda Amaze that have been freshly been updated. There are cars like the Ford Aspire, Volkswagen Ameo and Tata Tigor that will receive a update of their own soon. With the Hyundai Xcent 2019, it will have to fight for its place among the Dzire and the Amaze.
