Hyundai Aura Specifications
The Aura looks very similar to the Grand i10 NIOS from the front profile

Hyundai Xcent’s successor based on the Grand i10 NIOS, Hyundai Aura has been launched with a starting price of Rs. 5.79 lakhs (ex-showroom). It is available with three engine options and 12 variants.

In terms of styling, the Hyundai Aura has a similar front profile like the Grand i10 NIOS. There are some unique elements such as the twin boomerang LED DRLs, new grille and bumper design. The side profile gets a floating roof effect thanks to the blacked out C-pillar. The rear gets new design elements including large tail lights, new bumper and a good dose of chrome.

The interior is exactly the same as the Grand i10 NIOS. The colour theme is different though as the Aura gets satin bronze and grey dual tone dashboard.

Some of the key highlights of the Hyundai Aura include Cruise Control, Wireless Charger, USB Fast Charger, Rear AC Vents, Driver rear view monitor, iBLUE Audio Remote Smart Phone App, Arkamys audio system, touchscreen infotainment system, etc.
