Hyundai Reveals Engine Specifications Of Aura

  • Nov 21, 2019

South Korean automobile major Hyundai is all set to introduce the brand new Aura compact sedan in the Indian market which will replace the Xcent. The latter may still be available only in a compressed natural gas (CNG) trim for both private customers and fleet operators. The Aura, meanwhile, will be the first Hyundai car in India to have a BS-VI engine from the beginning.

The Aura, according to Hyundai, will be available in a choice of three engines. These include the 1.2-litre petrol motor borrowed from the Elite i20 and a 1.2-litre diesel engine. The third engine will be a turbocharged 1.0-litre petrol unit that hauls the Venue subcompact sports utility vehicle (SUV).

The 1.2-litre petrol engine will produce 83PS maximum power and 113Nm peak torque. The 1.2-litre diesel motor, on the other hand, will output 75PS maximum power and 190Nm peak torque. Both engines will be mated to a 5-speed manual gear system with an automated manual transmission (AMT) available as an option.

The 1.0-litre petrol motor, on its part, will produce 110PS maximum power and 172Nm peak torque. The engine will be paired with a 5-speed manual transmission system only.

Hyundai has claimed that the Aura will return higher fuel efficiency and offer low vibrations. That aside the car will have cleaner emissions along with improved performance. The Aura comes with Hyundai’s Advanced After-Treatment System (AATS) which the company claims have been designed to meet the highest emission norm.

The Hyundai Aura could make its debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. It will closely resemble the Grand i10 Nios in looks (with the boot added), just like other hatchback-to-sedan cars in its class. The Aura may command an ex-showroom price between ₹6 lakh and ₹9 lakh. It will face competition in the subcompact sedan segment from Volkswagen Ameo, Ford Aspire, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, and Tata Tigor.
