The new sub-4m sedan offering from Hyundai, called the Aura, is set to be launched tomorrow. Its exterior, interior and engine specifications have already been unveiled, which only leaves the variant-wise pricing to be announced.
The Aura is the successor to the Xcent and its front end looks a lot like the Grand i10 Nios. Its rear end is a lot different, with the C-shaped taillamps extending onto the bootlid, connected by a chrome element. It also has a spoiler sculpted into the bootlid design while the front grille gets boomerang-shaped dual LED DRLs. The Aura is wider, with a longer wheelbase than the Xcent.
Hyundai will be offering the Aura with three BS6 engine options - 1.2-litre petrol (83PS/114Nm), 1.2-diesel (75PS/190Nm) and 1.0-litre turbo-petrol (100PS/172Nm). All engines are mated to a 5-speed manual but only the 1.2-litre engines get the AMT option. The turbo-petrol variant gets added ‘Turbo’ badges on the front grille and on the boot.
The interior of the Aura was recently unveiled and it follows the same layout as the Grand i10 Nios as expected. Its central infotainment system is integrated into the instrument cluster panel. The Aura gets an 8-inch touchscreen display in the centre of the dash above the AC vents with a 5.3-inch LCD display in the semi-digital instrument cluster. In the top-spec, Hyundai will offer a beige theme for the cabin with bronze coloured inserts around the front air vents.
The Hyundai Aura is expected to be priced between Rs 6 lakh and Rs 9 lakh. It will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire, Tata Tigor and Volkswagen Ameo.
