The Xcent successor is currently under testing across the country

Hyundai has started teasing their upcoming compact sedan Aura. It is a successor to the Hyundai Xcent just like the recently launched Grand i10 successor NIOS. The carmaker will continue to sell the current Xcent for fleet operators and hence have decided to drop the name in Aura.

The Korean carmaker has revealed the engine options of the Aura today. All diesel and petrol engines will come with BS6 compliance at the time of launch.

The Hyundai Aura will get a new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is also available in the Venue. The Aura is likely to get it in a lower state of tune producing around 100 BHP. This engine will be mated to a 5-speed manual transmission only.

The 1.2-litre 4-cylinder Kappa petrol engine will be offered that currently produces 83 HP and 114 Nm. The 1.2-litre 3-cylinder diesel engine will be available as well that churns out 75 HP and 190 Nm in BS4 guise. With BS6 compliance we can expect similar power and torque output. Both of these engine will be offered with 5-speed MT and AMT gearbox options.

You can expect the Hyundai Aura to share most of the styling and features with the Grand i10 NIOS. The compact sedan is expected to be launched in early 2020 around the Auto Expo.

The Hyundai Aura will compete with the likes of the Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze, Volkswagen Ameo, Ford Aspire, etc.
