Since Ford Figo Aspire is launching in few days’ time, Hyundai India has decided to upgrade Xcent’s features list to maintain its appeal. Now, even base and S trim are offered with ABS as standard. The SX trim has been eliminated while the S (O) trim is fitted with standard dual front airbags as as well as reverse parking sensor with camera on internal rear view mirror.

While the sub-4 metre sedan gains features, Eon has lost some. The D-Lite Plus trim has been stripped off body colored bumpers and chrome front grille. The Era Plus variant eschews central locking. No changes were made to rest of the trim levels.
