5 Things that make Hyundai Aura an all-in-one urban sedan
In a segment crowded with sedans that skip one feature or another, the Aura feels like a breath of fresh air with a host of segment firsts
With numerous options around, selecting a car today is a tricky task. While your heart prefers a smart looking car, the mind tends to favour an option with a roomier cabin, high mileage, and good safety features. Thankfully, you need not compromise as Hyundai Aura offers a perfect combination of style, space, performance, safety and much more. Here’re the top five reasons that set Hyundai Aura apart from the competition and make it the best buy:
1) Style and Design
One look at the Hyundai Aura and it’s impossible not to get impressed. Its striking design coupled with premium styling will make your heart skip a beat. Up front, the black cascading grille with boomerang LED DRLs and best-in-class projector fog lamps take the pride of the place. The swept-back, smoked-out projector headlamps produce a focused beam – a first-in-class feature to make sure your night journeys are fully lit and safe. Another thoughtful touch comes in the form of the wheel air curtains which curtail the passage of air around wheels, thereby aiding fuel-efficiency and highway stability.
In profile, Aura’s design is fully animated by its coupe-ish roof and 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. The chrome outside the door handles adds a premium touch while the aerodynamically sculpted outside rearview mirrors with electrically adjustable and foldable features offer a great combination of comfort and convenience.
At the back, the design of the Aura is characterised by its striking Z-shaped LED tail lamps. Further aiding the form factor is the rear chrome garnish which connects tail lamps and accentuates the width of the car. And we almost forget to mention the shark-fin antenna that brings extra oomph to the rear.
2) Cabin and Interiors
Hyundai Aura has a no-compromise cabin. The quality is top-notch and attention to detail is typical of a Hyundai – excellent. Sample the Satin Bronze inserts or the honeycomb texturing, and Aura feels like it belongs to a segment above.
Slip into the rear seat and the amount of legroom and knee room on offer will pleasantly surprise you. Even the headroom is on-par and this despite the car having a coupe profile. The rear seat recline angle is spot-on and coupled with dedicated AC vents and armrest, Aura offers a delightful chauffeur-driven experience. Boot space of 402-litre is thoughtfully conceived and large enough for your weekend getaway.
3) Technology Package
Hyundai Aura boasts of several first-in-class and segment-best features. Take, for instance, its 20.25-cm touchscreen infotainment which is the largest in the segment and offers a host of connectivity features including Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Another segment-first feature offered by Aura is its wireless charging pad – just put your mobile phone and there you go. Alternatively, you also get USB charging on Aura’s dashboard. Aura’s 13.46-cm instrument cluster is another addition to its best-in-class features. Hyundai also offers Eco-Coating technology on Aura, again first-in-segment, to offer clean, odour-free air to occupants.
4) Safety and Security
Safety has always been a priority for Hyundai and the long equipment list on Aura testifies the importance it attaches to the protection of occupants. Aura comes equipped with a first-in-class driver rearview monitor and emergency stop signal safety features. This is in addition to the standard safety kit on the car which includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, speed alert system, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat mounts, and front seatbelt reminder.
5) Engine, transmission, and Mileage
Hyundai Aura offers a range of engine and transmission options to prospective buyers. On the petrol front, you can go for either 1.0-litre turbo petrol (100PS/17.5kgm) or 1.2-litre VTVT Petrol (83PS/11.6kgm) with the former being the first-in-class turbo motor. Another feat achieved by Aura is its 1.2-litre diesel (75PS/19.4kgm) which is India’s only compact diesel engine compliant with BS6 emission norms. The oil-burner also features the first-in-class automatic gearbox in addition to the convenience of a manual gearbox. The 1.2-litre petrol too comes with both manual and automatic options but the turbo petrol can only be had with a manual gearbox.
Hyundai Aura offers unmatched levels of style, safety, comfort, and convenience to buyers. More importantly, it comes with numerous first-in-class and segment-best features which easily make it the best compact sedan in its category. Adding to this value offering is the customised warranty offered by Hyundai – you can choose from 3-year/1,00,000 km, 4-year/50,000 km, or 5-year/40,000 km packages. In addition, you also get Hyundai’s 3-year roadside assistance with a nationwide network of 1,300 customer touchpoints, so you’re never too far away from a Hyundai service centre.
