The Aura gets dual-airbags and ABS as standard

Safety and After Sales Service – The Aura gets standard dual-front airbags and ABS. Hyundai is promising an extremely crash-worthy body structure and of course, the car meets the upcoming crash-test norms. Hyundai has a service satisfaction record you cannot go wrong with.

Based on the trim, the Hyundai Aura is offered in a total of 9 body paint options

Verdict – When the Xcent was taken off the shelves it left a gaping hole for Hyundai to fill. Now with the Aura, the carmaker aims to fill that place, and achieve much more in terms of market share and position among rivals. As looks are subjective to buyers, keeping it aside it will be a crime to not applaud Hyundai for offering – the first turbo-petrol engine in this segment, a cost-efficient BS6-compliant diesel automatic, at a starting price of Rs. 5.79 lakhs, the petrol variant undercuts all its rivals and last but not least, it offers a class-leading warranty of 5 years. Hyundai has laid all its cards on the table and in my opinion, has managed to tick all the right boxes.
