Hyundai Aura: Big Things in a Small Package

The Aura was launched in January 2020 to replace the Xcent in Hyundai’s catalogue. It has a distinct design that you will never mistake for anything else in the market. The bold silver-satin finish grille, signature twin boomerang DRLs, eye-catching LED tail-lamps, and smooth, silky lines all contribute to its distinctive appearance. The whole styling approach is completed by elegant touches such as integrated turn indicators in the outside rear-view mirrors, slick diamond-cut alloy wheels, and chrome garnish on the boot. There are six colour options on offer to ensure that the buyers can have their Aura reflect their personal style.

The story continues inside the cabin, where dual-tone interior, an attractive satin bronze crash pad, and a truly spacious cabin are hallmarks of Hyundai’s superior engineering. The comfortable cushioning and inclusion of thoughtful features like second-row air-conditioning, multiple USB ports and wireless charging, cruise control, and Driver Rear View Monitoring elevate the experience for the driver and the passengers in the Aura. With an exceptional Arkamys sound system, a 20.25-centimetre touchscreen that is equipped with Android Auto and Apple Car Play, Bluetooth connectivity, voice recognition, and iBlue audio remote control, you will always be entertained within the Aura. The Aura also offers a range of engine and transmission options to suit different needs.

The 1.2-litre Kappa Dual VTVT is offered as a petrol engine with 83 hp and in a Bi-Fuel guise with the addition of a factory CNG kit with 69 horses on tap. The Aura is the only car in this segment to offer a diesel engine as well, in the form of the 75-hp 1.2 Eco TORQ. And for those who like a little more excitement, there is a 1.0-litre Turbo GDi petrol option that offers 100 hp. Both petrol and diesel variants get the choice of manual transmission or a Smart Auto AMT. All the engine options in the Aura are smooth, refined, fuel-efficient, and BS6-compliant.

Hyundai have been conscious of the safety aspect when putting together the Aura. They have included ABS with EBD and driver and passenger airbags as standard across the board. Additional safety features include an immobilizer, speed-sensing door-lock and impact-sensing door-unlock, driver and passenger seatbelts with pre-tensioners and load limiters, and a rear camera with parking display along with parking sensors as well.

With prices starting from as low as Rs 5.79 lakh (ex-showroom), there is no doubt that the Aura is a fantastic prospect for those looking for a stylish compact sedan.
