2021 Hyundai Aura Subcompact Sedan Introduced With Revised Prices & Features

Sometimes, automakers will re-introduce a particular model without creating any hype around it. This is what Hyundai has done with the 2021 Aura subcompact sedan in India. While no one was paying much attention, the Korean major went ahead and silently revealed a revised iteration of its sub-4-meter sedan. The most affordable sedan in the brand’s lineup in the country, the Aura now comes with a few revised features plus a price hike (save for the base E variant). This means that Aura’s entry-level E variant is still priced at Rs 5.92 Lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). On the other hand, Hyundai has raised the prices of the rest of the trims.

There are a total of five trim levels when it comes to the Aura petrol and three variants for the diesel. Hyundai has increased the prices of both petrol and diesel versions of the Aura by a uniform Rs 4,000. Among the former, the price of the S variant has gone up from Rs 6.68 Lakh to Rs 6.72 Lakh. While the cost of the S (AMT) has risen from Rs 7.18 Lakh to Rs 7.22 Lakh. This is followed by the SX and SX (O) variants that are now priced at Rs 7.41 Lakh and Rs 7.97 Lakh, respectively. As for the range-topping SX+ (AMT) and SX+ (Turbo), these now cost Rs 8.16 Lakh and Rs 8.70 Lakh. Finally, the Hyundai Aura is also available in a CNG version on the S variant – it is priced at Rs 7.48 Lakh.

Meanwhile, the Hyundai Aura diesel variants start with the S, which now costs Rs 7.89 Lakh. As for the S (AMT), its price tag reflects Rs 8.39 Lakh, while the SX (O) costs Rs 9.15 Lakh. The most expensive variant of the Aura diesel is the SX+ (AMT) and it is priced at Rs 9.34 Lakh. Note that all these prices are ex-showroom, Delhi. On the features front, Hyundai has made a few revisions to the 2021 Aura lineup. For starters, the entry-level E variant now gets a smaller spare wheel – down from 14 inches to 13 inches. Further cost-cutting can be seen via Hyundai’s decision of chucking the Arkamys audio system for (probably) a less-premium unit.

On the other hand, the S variant of the 2021 Aura now comes with larger 15-inch wheels instead of the former 14s. Furthermore, all variants of the Aura (except for the base E trim) now come with a sporty-looking bootlid spoiler. Of course, this spoiler has been added for purely aesthetic reasons and doesn’t have any actual aerodynamic purpose. Apart from these revisions, the rest of the subcompact sedan continues without any changes. This means that customers will still get features like keyless entry, push-button ignition, automatic climate control (with rear vents), a wireless charger, cruise control, and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment head unit with support for Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.

As expected, there has been no change under the hood. The 2021 Hyundai Aura offers buyers three engine options, including two petrols and one diesel. In its diesel form, the Aura’s 1.2-liter four-cylinder mill churns out 74hp and 190Nm of torque. It can be mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. The base petrol motor is a 1.2-liter unit that produces 82hp and 114Nm of torque, whilst the 1.0-liter turbo motor is good for around 99hp and 172Nm of twisting force. The latter is only offered with the 5-speed manual, whilst the 1.2-liter petrol engine can be had with either that or an AMT. The Hyundai Aura rivals similar cars such as the Honda Amaze, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, and Tata Tigor.
