Hyundai Aura CNG: What Makes It The Perfect Urban Sedan
The Aura CNG marries the best of both worlds by offering premium features at a pocket-friendly running cost.
Buying a new car in Indian cities is a tightrope walk. You want a car that is large enough for your needs, but also compact enough to easily squeeze into narrow streets and tight parking spots. It also needs to look and feel premium while ensuring that neither your bank relationship manager nor your regular fuel station attendant gets too fond of you.
If that dilemma sounds familiar, say hello to the Hyundai Aura CNG. Here’s what makes the Aura CNG the perfect steed for city slickers.
Premium Outside and Inside
Making a solid first impression comes easy to the Hyundai Aura CNG as it gets an eye-catching design with a host of premium touches. This includes smoked projector headlamps, sporty 15-inch alloy wheels, nifty boot lip spoiler, and chrome-finished door handles and tail lamp strip. If you desire a car that outshines others in your parking lot, the Aura does the job admirably.
Also admirable is the Aura’s interior space. It’s large, well-appointed, and filled with features that are designed to make your stay in the sedan more comfortable, entertaining, and safer. For instance, the rear seat can easily seat three and gets goodies such as a dedicated AC vent and armrest for added comfort.
In keeping with the expectations and aspirations of the modern urban car buyer, Hyundai has loaded the Aura’s interiors with several segment-leading tech features. The sedan gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the largest in its segment, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support for pairing your smartphone. The Aura also offers a feature that even more expensive cars don’t: wireless charging. All you need to do is place your smartphone on the dashboard’s charging pad to juice it up, that’s it.
Hyundai raises the ease-of-use factor some more by letting you control the infotainment system and other functions through voice commands or a Bluetooth-enabled ‘iBlue’ remote control app installed on your smartphone. These features ensure the Aura’s tech package is as practical as it is premium.
CNG Power - Wallet- and Eco-friendly
Driving in urban areas is a test of not just your driving skills but also your money management ones. That’s because the unpredictable traffic patterns and congestions of urban spaces affect your car’s fuel efficiency and lead to higher fuel bills. The problem is further compounded by fluctuating fuel prices.
The Hyundai Aura CNG is the perfect antidote to these problems as it offers an ARAI-rated mileage of 28.4km/kg. Even at current prices, this puts the Aura CNG’s running costs at roughly half of petrol and diesel cars. But more importantly, you’d be doing your bit for the environment as the Aura CNG emits lower NOx (Nitrogen Oxides), CO2, and PM (Particulate Matter) while being notably quieter than petrol and diesel cars.
When you consider the wide CNG network in Indian cities and the peace of mind offered by a factory-fitted CNG kit, picking the Aura CNG as your urban workhorse makes sound economic sense.
Bring Home the Perfect Urban Sedan
The Hyundai Aura CNG is a sedan that fulfils all your needs within the constraints of urban living. It looks the part, has loads of premium features that make your life easier, offers enough cabin space for five, and a sizable boot despite packing in a CNG fuel tank. All that in a package that is nimble enough to steer around in cities without wringing your wallet dry. In other words, the Hyundai Aura CNG turns the tightrope walk that is buying a new car into a cakewalk.
