Hyundai India has unveiled its latest compact-sedan for the Indian market, the Aura. The new Hyundai Aura is expected to be launched in the Indian market sometime early next year.
The Hyundai Aura is a sub-4 metre compact-sedan for the Indian market, expected to replace the current Xcent model. The new Hyundai Aura comes with a completely new design language, looking more modern and sportier in the process. The Aura sedan is based on the Grand i10 NIOS hatchback which was recently introduced in the country.
The Hyundai Aura has similar dimensions to the Xcent; this includes the length and height at 3,995mm and 1,520mm, respectively. However, Hyundai has increased the width by 20mm while the wheelbase has also been stretched out by a further 25mm.
In terms of design, the new Hyundai Aura comes with a front fascia similar to that of the NIOS. However, there are a few minor changes, to help differentiate the two. This includes a double boomerang LED DRL on the front cascading grille; in place of the single units on the NIOS.
Apart from this, the new Aura compact sedan comes with a stylish rear design. This includes a set of sharp-looking wrap-around LED taillights. The Hyundai Aura also comes with a completely blacked-out C-pillar, giving the car a floating roof effect. The boot on the Aura also integrates well, making the car feel proportionate from all angles.
Hyundai didn't reveal the interiors of the new Aura compact-sedan. However, we do expect it to be very similar to that of the Grand i10 NIOS. This includes dual-tone dashboard, touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted controls, push-button start/stop and a host of others.
Hyundai had already announced the engine options on the upcoming Aura compact-sedan. To reiterate, the Hyundai Aura will be offered with a choice of three engine options: two petrol and one diesel.
The petrol engines on offer include a 1.2-litre Kappa engine producing 83bhp and 113Nm of torque. The second petrol engine will be the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit which debuted on the Hyundai Venue. This engine produces 120bhp and 172Nm of peak torque.
The lone 1.2-litre diesel unit produces 75bhp and 190Nm of torque. All three engines will be BS-VI compliant from the time of introduction. All three engines will be mated to a standard five-speed manual with the other two engines receiving the optional automatic transmissions as well.
Thoughts On The Hyundai Aura Compact-Sedan Unveil
The Hyundai Aura is essentially the next-generation version of the outgoing Xcent model in the Indian market. Once launched in India, the Hyundai Aura will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, Tata Tigor and the Honda Amaze in the segment.
