The Aura will offer a choice of three BS-VI compliant engine options: 1.0-litre turbo petrol, 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.2-litre diesel.
Hyundai has pulled the covers off Aura, its new sub-4m compact sedan offering. Based on what Hyundai refers to as the 'Sensuous Sportiness' design language, the Aura definitely brings in a wave of fresh styling. The compact sedan's front fascia is highlighted by elements like the twin boomerang LED DRLs, a premium satin front grille and projector fog lamps & headlamps. The star attraction of the rear design is definitely the Z-shaped LED taillamps, while the car rides on 15-inch diamond-cut alloys.
As for the engine options, the Aura will go on sale with two petrol and one diesel engine options. Those looking for petrol-powered variants will have a choice between a 99bhp, 172Nm 1.0-litre Turbo GDi and 82bhp, 114Nm 1.2-litre MPI units. The latter will also be available as a CNG-powered version. As for the diesel variants, they'll be powered by a 74bhp, 190Nm 1.2-litre ECOTORQ unit. All three engines will be BS-VI compliant from day one of sales. Transmission options include a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed Smart Auto AMT gearbox. However, the 1.0-litre Turbo petrol will be exclusively available with the manual gearbox option.
In terms of feature offerings, the Aura will be loaded to the gills and will also offer a good chunk of segment-first/segment-best features. The list includes wireless phone charging, a driving rear-view monitor (with an on-screen rear-view display while driving forward), chrome door handles, leather-wrapped steering wheel, ECO AC coating, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity and a 5.3-inch digital instrument cluster (with multi-information display).
To enhance customer satisfaction, Hyundai will offer a choice of three standard warranty packages for the Aura: 3-Year/1,00,000km, 4-Year/50,000km and 5-Year/40,000km. All packages also include free roadside assistance.
