Hyundai Aura Variants Comparison – Select The Suitable Variant To Buy

If you are planning to buy Hyundai Aura and can’t decide which variant to buy, this post might help you in forming a decision.

Hyundai has been consistent with their products over the years and consistently producing above-average products have given them the success they now enjoy. However, Hyundai Aura has been one such offering that is a bit underrated as compared to the other cars in the Hyundai line-up, and it might be because of the quirky/unorthodox design that was offered in its predecessor, Hyundai Xcent, which failed to attract people. Also, due to so many rivals which are already tried and tested in the compact sedan segment, the car might not have tasted the success that it truly deserves.

Nevertheless, the present scenario brings us to the question of which variant to choose? This can be a confusing thing to decide due to the availability of numerous variants on offer. To make an informed purchase decision, continue reading this post and we will help you in finding the perfect Hyundai Aura variant for you.

Talking about the powertrain options, as you can derive from the table, the Hyundai Aura comes with four different engines, a 1.2-litre diesel, 1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and a 1.2-litre CNG. Barring the CNG, all the other engine options are good to drive with the turbo petrol being the most fun to drive engine. None of the engines is best in terms of fuel economy but if that is your priority, then going for the CNG makes sense. The diesel is a good option if you want an optimal driving experience with decent fuel economy.

The price list for the Hyundai Aura starts from a fairly low Rs 5.99 Lakhs which is reasonable for a vehicle of this segment. The price bracket is extensive due to the availability of so many engines on offer. However, the diesel options are a bit on the higher side and could have been priced a little lower considering the other vehicles in the competition. Overall, there is a variant for everyone in this extensive price bracket.

The inclusion of ISOFIX Child Seat Mounts is a good move and should be taken into consideration by rivals as well.

As you can derive from the table, there are a lot of comfort and convenience features on offer given by Hyundai. There are plenty of features on offer for every variant, however, the base variant misses out on rear AC vents and adjustable steering which could have been included in the package to enhance the interior experience. Moreover, none of the variants come with cruise control which is a bit disappointing as the rivals offer the same. Overall, there are plenty of comfort inducing features in the Hyundai Aura with a few hits and misses.

Hyundai Aura comes with a sufficient interior kit to enhance and facilitate connectivity for the passengers inside. However, the lack of a height-adjustable driver seat in the base variant is a miss and could have been included. Overall, all the variants of the Aura are equipped with ample features and the leather gear selector is a premium feature that will attract more customers.

Conclusion

Hyundai Aura is a compact sedan that is offered with four engine options and all of them are capable and have varying driving dynamics. The interior and other features make the vehicle an enticing option but the quirky/unorthodox exterior design repels the customers. It gets all the necessary kits in every department but misses a few things as well which is understandable as no vehicle is perfect. The most value for money variants came out to be SX (O) for diesel and petrol and SX Plus AMT for petrol and diesel as well. These variants have almost all the necessary required kits at a reasonable price and will enhance your experience with the vehicle.
