Home / Home / Hyundai Aura Launched

 

The Hyundai Aura has been launched in India for a price ranging between Rs 5.79 lakh and Rs 9.24 lakh (ex-showroom prices). The all-new compact sedan is set to rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Tata Tigor and the Volkswagen Ameo.

Hyundai have gone for a design language that they claim will appeal to the younger side of the buyer spectrum. The Hyundai Aura certainly looks the part of a well-proportioned compact sedan, even if it does have a close resemblance to the Hyundai NIOS. Under the hood, the Aura will have three engine options (all BS VI-compliant); including two first-in-segment options. The segment-first Kappa 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, T-GDI petrol produces 100 hp and a peak torque of 172 Nm. This engine will be offered only with a five-speed manual. The 1.2-litre, MPI petrol makes 83 hp and a peak torque of 114 Nm. The diesel mill is also a segment-first. The 1.2-litre, three-cylinder, turbo-diesel Ecotorq churns out 75 hp and a peak torque of 190 Nm. Both 1.2s can choose between either a five-speed manual or AMT. The 1.2 will also have a CNG variant.

The Hyundai Aura features an eight-inch touchscreen that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, further supplemented by an Arkamys sound system. Other features include wireless charging and a ‘Driving Rear View Monitor’ that displays the rear camera’s view on the screen while driving forward. Hyundai are also providing three warranty options: three years/1,00,000 km, four years/50,000 km or five years/40,000 km along with Road Side Assistance. More about the Hyundai Aura will follow in our first drive review.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
