The Hyundai Aura has been updated for the Indian market. Hyundai has silently updated some features of the Aura, and announced a slightly revised pricing for 2021. The new revised pricing makes all Hyundai Aura models more expensive by Rs 4,000, except for the entry-level E Variant. The E variant still retails at Rs 5.92 lakh ex-showroom.
The Hyundai Aura has been around for a while now. Based on the i10 Grand NIOS, this compact sedan was expected to bring in great sales numbers. However, the Aura didn't sell as much as it was expected to and Hyundai has now updated the model and has brought in a few changes.
As part of the update, all models except the ‘E' variant get an integrated bootlid spoiler as standard fitment. However, the top-end SX and SX(O) variants miss out on the Arkamys audio system as part of the new update and are priced at Rs 7.41 and Rs 7.49 lakh respectively for the petrol variants, while the diesel SX(O) at Rs 9.15 lakh, is priced at Rs 1.66 lakh more than the equivalent petrol model.
The larger 15-inch wheels are available from the S petrol variant onwards, while the pricier AMT counterpart comes with better looking diamond-cut wheels. The spare tyre is a 14-inch unit on all variants except the entry-level E variant, which comes with an even smaller 13-inch unit.
The SX+ turbo variant is now priced at Rs 8.70 lakh, while the diesel SX+ AMT is even more expensive at Rs 9.34 lakh: making it the most expensive variant of the Hyundai Aura. There is also a CNG-powered version available in the S variant and that is priced at Rs 7.48 lakh, which makes it Rs 76,000 more expensive than its petrol-powered counterpart at Rs 6.72 lakh.
The rest of the model line-up includes S petrol AMT priced at Rs 7.22 lakh, SX petrol priced at Rs 7.41 lakh, SX+ petrol AMT priced at Rs 8.16 lakh, S diesel priced at Rs 7.89 lakh and S diesel AMT priced at Rs 8.39 lakh.

|S Petrol||₹6.72 Lakh|
|S Petrol AMT||₹7.22 Lakh|
|SX Petrol||₹7.41 Lakh|
|SX (O) Petrol||₹7.49 Lakh|
|SX+ Petrol AMT||₹8.16 Lakh|
|SX+ Turbo Petrol||₹8.70 Lakh|

No changes have been made to the engine. The Hyundai Aura still continues to be offered with a choice of two petrol and one diesel engine. The peppy 1.2-litre 4-pot petrol engine produces 83hp and the more powerful 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine makes 100hp. The 3-cylinder 1.2-litre diesel engine makes a respectable 74hp, while the CNG variant produces 69hp.
As a result, the fuel efficiency figures also remain the same with the 1.2-litre petrol unit returning 20.5kmpl for the manual version and 20.1 kmpl for the AMT version. The diesel model returns 25.35kmpl for the manual variant and 25.4kmpl for the AMT version. With the rising fuel prices, the CNG models seem more economical as they return 28.4km/kg.
