Based on a new platform the Aura gets its own design identity, while borrowing a few cues from the Grand i10 Nios. Hyundai says the design identity is defined by harmony among the four fundamental elements of proportion, architecture, styling and technology.
The interior is still under wraps however the dashboard will borrow a lot from its hatchback sibling the Nios. We can also confirm the presence of am 8.0 inch touchscreen infortainment system; a 5.3 inch screen integrated into the instrument console, an Arkamys sound system among many more.
Powering the Aura however are three engine options including – a 1.2 litre naturally aspirated kappa petrol motor, a 1.0-litre turbo petrol and a 1.2 litre diesel. The 1.0 litre turbo petrol churns out 100ps and 17.5 Nm of torque and comes mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox only.
