  • Hyundai Aura is the Xcent replacement.

  • Hyundai has officially confirmed driveline options for the Aura.

  • Aura gets two petrol, one diesel engine option.

  • The same engine options will be used on the Xcent as well.

The Hyundai Aura is Hyundai’s next-gen sub-4-meter sedan, and will almost – but not quite – replace the Xcent. The manufacturer has now revealed all the engine and gearbox options for it, and they will all be BS-VI compliant.

The Aura’s power units are all familiar ones: the 1.2-liter four-cylinder petrol and 1.2-liter three-cylinder diesel are the current engines of the Xcent that will be upgraded to BS Vl compliance.

The petrol currently generates 83 bhp and 114 Nm, and the diesel, 75 bhp, and 190 Nm, so we can expect the figures to stay roughly the same with a slight dip in the ARAI claimed fuel efficiency figure, if at all. 

The diesel uses a lean NOx trap, which is a more cost-effective solution than a selective catalytic reduction system. These engines will also find their way into the Xcent, which will also be sold alongside the Aura as a commercial vehicle. Both these engines will be available with five-speed gearboxes, with the option of a manual gearbox or an AMT automatic.

The third engine is turbo petrol that displaces 1.0-liter. This will most probably be offered with 100 bhp and a five-speed manual gearbox. This is an engine/gearbox option that will also be seen on the Grand i10 Nios.

The Aura will offer a number of features from the Grand i10 Nios, as the touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. BlueLink is also a possibility. 

The Hyundai Aura will have a tough task keeping up with the segment leader, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, but it will also have to contend with the Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire, Tata Tigor, and an upcoming small sedan from Renault.
