2023 Hyundai Aura Facelift: Features & Specs Revealed
Delhi : The price range for the 2023 Hyundai Aura Facelift in India is between Rs. 6.30 and Rs. 8.87 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
Hyundai Aura was first introduced in January 2020. It was built on the Grand i10 Nios platform and marketed as the company's entry-level sedan. The interiors were among the best in its segment in terms of quality and design, and they looked more contemporary than the ageing Xcent that it would eventually replace. Hyundai added a turbo-petrol engine to the vehicle to give it more power. The Aura became a quick sub-4 m sedan with this unit. The Aura consistently sells more than 4,000 copies per month, ranking it as an average performer in its market.
It is competing with the Honda Amaze for second position, considerably behind the Maruti Dzire, the market leader.
In addition to the Grand i10 Nios makeover, Hyundai has now released an improved Aura model. Let's examine some of the most noticeable modifications made to the vehicle. First off, there are no longer any available turbo-petrol engines. For enthusiasts hoping for a cute little car that is enjoyable to drive, this is a huge letdown. The same 1.2L Kappa naturally aspirated petrol motor with 5-speed MT & AMT options as well as a 1.2L Kappa petrol + CNG with a 5-speed MT are now available as engine options. The fact that these engines comply with RDE standards is remarkable. In April 2023, RDE emission standards are expected to be implemented.
In order to pass these tests, an automobile must release less carbon dioxide during actual driving scenarios. The 1.2L petrol engine can run on gasoline combined with 20% ethanol because it is also E20 fuel ready.
Hyundai has added some new features and made some exterior visual tweaks to the Aura. Also, it has added a few extra safety features. Six single-tone colour options are offered for the Aura: Arctic White, Titan Grey, Typhoon Silver, Teal Blue, Fiery Red, and a brand-new Starry Night hue. There are no dual-tone colour possibilities, in contrast to the Grand i10 Nios.
Regarding the interior, the cabin's layout is unaltered. Nonetheless, there is a new instrument panel, new upholstery for the seats, and ambient lighting for the front footwells.
Cruise control, LED taillights, automatic headlamps with escort function, rear air conditioning vents, an 8-inch touchscreen head unit with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility and smartphone navigation, voice recognition, wireless smartphone charging (first in segment), and a quick USB charger (Type-C) are just a few of the features offered by the Aura.
The vehicle comes with over 30 safety features, including ISOFIX child seat anchors, hill-start assist control (HAC), electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, 4 airbags as standard (first in segment), 6 airbags (in the top variant), an emergency stop signal (first in segment), a tyre pressure monitoring system (first in segment), and more. Aura models are available in E, S, SX, SX+, and SX(O) variations. They cost anything from Rs. 6.30 to Rs. 8.87 lakhs.
Hyundai is providing a warranty plan for three years or 100,000 miles. Other options include a 7-year extended warranty. If you use this extension frequently, we highly recommend it. In addition, Hyundai is including three years of roadside assistance with the Aura. Moreover, you can purchase a Shield of Trust Super maintenance package for up to 5 years as well as a Shield of Trust repair running package.
