Hyundai Aura facelift: powertrain details

The Aura facelift sees no changes under the hood as it continues to be powered by the same 1.2-litre engine. This unit churns out 83hp and 113.8Nm while being mated to a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. Additionally, Hyundai is also offering a factory-fitted CNG kit with the 1.2-litre petrol engine of the Aura, which develops 69hp and 95.2Nm of torque and is only offered with a 5-speed gearbox. However, the facelifted compact sedan no longer gets the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that churns out 100hp and 172Nm of torque.

Hyundai Aura facelift: variants, features

The facelifted Aura is available in four trims – E, S, SX and SX(O) – and gets a bunch of new convenience and safety features compared to the outgoing model. In terms of safety, the Aura facelift now gets four airbags, and ABS and EBD as standard; the higher variants, meanwhile, get six airbags, ESC, ISOFIX anchorages, hill-hold assist and automatic headlamps.

When it comes to convenience features, the compact sedan retains the 8.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, rear AC vents, adjustable rear headrests, automatic climate control and a wireless charger. However, higher-spec versions now get new features such as Type-C charging ports and a 3.5-inch digital display in the instrument cluster.

Hyundai Aura facelift: exterior, interior highlights

As part of the refresh, the Aura now sports a new front-end design that showcases a more upright nose and a two-part grille. The compact sedan also gets new inverted L-shaped LED DRLs housed at the edges of the bumper, although it now misses out on fog lamps. However, the Aura does not see any changes along the sides or the rear as it continues with the same design for the 15-inch alloy wheels and LED tail-lights. The facelifted Aura also sports the boot-lid spoiler as standard in all except the base trim.

The facelifted Aura now gets a new Starry Night shade that replaces the Vintage Brown option from the outgoing model. On the inside, the cabin layout of the compact sedan remains the same, but now, it features new upholstery for the seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and new lighting for the footwell area.

The facelifted Aura takes on other compact sedans like the Tata Tigor (Rs 6.10 lakh-8.84 lakh), the Honda Amaze (Rs 6.89 lakh-9.48 lakh) and the Maruti Suzuki Dzire (Rs 6.24 lakh-9.18 lakh) in the market.
