Hyundai Xcent – ABS and EBD now standard across the range

The Hyundai Xcent compact sedan now comes with anti lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) as standard on all variants. The company has also discontinued the E+ trim.

Prior to this variant reshuffle, the Hyundai Xcent was available in 5 trim levels – E, E+, S, SX and SX(O). In this lineup, dual airbags were offered as standard, while the presence of ABS and EBD was limited to SX and SX(O) trims.

In addition to the variant discontinuation and reshuffle, no other cosmetic or mechanical changes have been made to the Xcent. The compact sedan had received a mid life facelift just last year and hence isn’t really due an update as of now.

The Xcent continues to be offered with two engine options. These include a 1.2-litre four cylinder petrol and a 1.2-litre three cylinder diesel. A 5-speed manual gearbox is standard across the range, while a 4-speed automatic is offered as an option on the petrol models.
