Rs 6.73 lakh

Difference

Rs 26,000 (Dzire is more expensive)

What Dzire VXI offers over Aura S: Anti theft system. 

Verdict: The Aura continues to be our pick. Despite being more affordable, it offers more features than the Dzire.

Maruti Dzire ZXI

Rs 7.32 lakh

Difference

Rs 2,000 (Dzire is more expensive)

What Aura SX offers over Dzire ZXI: 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reverse parking camera and LED DRLs. 

What Dzire ZXI offers over Aura SX: Auto AC, leather-wrapped steering wheel and anti theft system.

Verdict: It’s a close call here. However, we will suggest you to go for the Dzire as it gets automatic AC over the Aura. It does misses out on a touchscreen infotainment system  and parking camera which the Aura gets, but that can be fitted as an accessory. On the contrary, the auto AC, which the Aura misses out, cannot be added as an accessory, making the Dzire a more reasonable pick. 

Hyundai Aura SX(O) vs Maruti Dzire ZXI+: 

Hyundai Aura SX(O)

Rs 7.86 lakh

Maruti Dzire ZXI+

Rs 8.21 lakh

Difference

Rs 35,000 (Dzire is more expensive)

What Aura SX(O) offers over Dzire ZXI+: Cruise control and wireless mobile charging. 

What Dzire ZXI+ offers over Aura SX(O): Automatic LED headlamps. 

Verdict: The Aura is our pick here. It does misses out on LED headlamps but it is a fair trade off considering it costs Rs 35,000 less than the Dzire. Also, the Hyundai gets premium features like cruise control and wireless mobile charging which the Maruti misses out on. 

Maruti Dzire

Hyundai Aura SX+ AMT vs Maruti Dzire ZXI AGS: 

Hyundai Aura SX+ AMT

Rs 8.05 lakh

Maruti Dzire ZXI AGS

Rs 7.79 lakh
