  • Hyundai Aura to be based on Grand i10 Nios.
  • Hyundai Aura could be launched at the Auto Expo 2020.
  • Hyundai Aura to get BS 6 compliant petrol and diesel engines.

Hyundai India has officially announced the name of its all-new compact sedan as 'Aura' which is expected to replace the Xcent sedan in the country. Being based on the Grand i10 Nios, Hyundai Aura will go on sale next year and could be launched at the grand stage of the Auto Expo 2020 in February.

It has been already spotted several times during the test runs on the Indian roads, albeit wearing camouflage.

Hyundai has refrained from sharing any other information regarding the new sedan at the moment other than the name. The company has stated that 'Aura' is inspired by ‘vibrance of positivity’ and it reflects the ‘state of being’ for the one driving it.

However, it is no longer a secret that the Aura will share several elements with the Grand i10 Nios. The South-Korean automaker has worked substantially on the silhouette to differentiate it from the Xcent. A few styling cues have also been drawn from the recently launched Elantra Facelift.

Hyundai Aura interior cabin will resemble a lot to the Grand i10 Nios. It would boast of premium features in form of an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, wireless smartphone charging, Bluelink connected car technology, etc. to name a few.

In addition, Hyundai might also offer rear-seat armrest and adjustable headrests for rear seats in order to accentuate comfort and convenience. Mechanically, the Aura will get BS 6 certified 1.2L petrol and diesel engines with a manual transmission as standard while an AMT gearbox could be offered as optional on top trims.
