  • Next-gen Hyundai Compact Sedan will get BS6 compliant 1.2L petrol and U2 1.2L diesel engines.

  • A large 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment unit will be equipped inside. 

  • Lower trims of old Xcent and new compact sedan will be sold alongside. 

Hyundai’s next-gen compact sedan has been spied testing in the country for the first time. The sedan will share heavily from the new Grand i10 NIOS, especially body panels. Also, it is likely to sport three-box semblance that will help it look wider. At the front, it features Hyundai’s new cascading grille with honeycomb inserts and the bumper has been designed such that it merges seamlessly with the grille. 

Also new to the sedan is the wider chin and separately positioned intakes. Fog lamp inserts are placed vertically and it gets two plastic slats along with round lamps. Akin to Nios, it also sports boomerang-shaped LED DRLs. The spy image reveals its rear three-quarter which sports large wrap-around lights with LED units that extend to the boot lid. There is a number plate on the rear bumper and decorative LED strips are placed below the tail-lamps.

On the inside, the new Hyundai sedan will borrow most of the cues from its hatchback sibling, the Hyundai Grand i10 NIOS like the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This unit will, however, miss out on Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While higher variants could get a wireless charging option, it remains to be seen if it gets Hyundai’s Blue Link connectivity system. Also expected inside are different colour options for seats, rear armrest and headrests for the second row. 

Under the hood, it will receive BS6 compliant versions of 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine and U2 1.2-litre diesel engine. Both units are likely to get an AMT gearbox. Hyundai is expected to drop the Xcent nameplate, as it plans to offer the lower trims of Xcent to the fleet operators. Both Xcent and new compact sedan will be sold alongside.
