Launched in April 2017, the facelift model came out with some changes to its exterior such as new front grille, LED daytime running lights, redesigned headlamps and new wraparound taillamps at the rear, while the interior boasted of 7 inch touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and dual-tone dashboard along with other features such as driver’s side seat height adjuster, new fabric upholstery, automatic climate control and cooled glove-box.

However, the Hyundai has discontinued the E+ variant on the Xcent and the subcompact sedan is now only offered in four trims - E, S, SX, and the fully-kitted SX (O). Compared to popular sellers like the Dzire and Amaze in the segment, the Xcent is the only model to offer EBD as a standard feature, which gives at an additional edge over the competition.

Mechanically, the Xcent is offered in two engine options – the same 1.2-litre petrol (as seen on its predecessor) that produces 82bhp of maximum power with 114Nm of peak torque and a new 1.2-litre diesel engine that makes 74 bhp and 190 Nm of top torque.
