The 2017 Xcent facelift gets a heavily revised rear with new horizontal taillamps, new boot lid and a bigger bumper.

The general body outline and small boot are recognisable, marking this test mule will only have substantial cosmetic upgrades. There should be new front and rear bumpers, along with restyled headlamps, tail lamps and front grille. However, the most prominent change visible is the new taillight assembly, which look considerably larger than the current model ones.

Inside, the dashboard and overall cabin layout is expected to remain unchanged, though with an addition of equipment including a 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, while the top-end Asta gets a new 7-inch system with navigation, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto like on the 2017 Grand i10 facelift.

A new wheel cover is evident, while the top-end variants will get a new alloy rim designs.

Like the updated Grand i10, the new Xcent too will carry forward the current 1.2-litre petrol motor paired with a 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic, while the existing 1.1-litre three-cylinder diesel engine is expected to be replaced by a larger 1.2-litre three-cylinder diesel engine mated a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Rivaling the Maruti DZire, Honda Amaze, Tata Zest and the newly launched VW Ameo, the 2017 Xcent facelift is reportedly expected to enter the market by March-2017.
