Gets cosmetic upgrades and feature additions
The facelifted Hyundai Aura made its public debut at Delhi Auto Expo, days after its global unveiling. This is the first midlife update of the compact sedan since its introduction back in January 2020. Hyundai has updated the styling and added new tech and safety features to the car.
The Aura Facelift features a more upright nose, new two-part split grille with hexagonal patterning in black, new inverted L-shaped daytime running lights, and a sharper front lip. There are no noteworthy differences made to the sides and rear of this vehicle. The boot lip spoiler was earlier offered as an accessory, but now it comes standard on all variants except the base trim.
Interior And Features
On the inside, the new Aura Facelift receives new upholstery for the seats, steering wheel wrapped in leather, and new lighting for the footwell. The refreshed model retains the 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, and wireless charger from the outgoing model. Along with that, it also gets new Type-C ports and a new 3.5-inch digital display in the instrument panel.
In terms of safety features, the Aura Facelift comes with 4 airbags, and ABS and EBD as standard. 6 airbags, electronic stability control and hill assist control are offered as options. Automatic headlamps, keyless entry, central locking, ISOFIX mounting points, and day/night rearview mirror are the other optional equipment on offer.
The new Hyundai Aura sedan will continue to be offered with the 1.2L petrol engine that’s good for 83HP and 113.8 Nm of Torque. It’s mated to either a 5-speed manual or an AMT gearbox. Additionally, the Aura Facelift can also be had with a factory-installed CNG kit which churns out 69HP and 95.2Nm of Torque. Sadly, Hyundai has discontinued the 1.0L turbo petrol engine on the facelift.
Hyundai India has commenced the bookings for the Aura Facelift for a token amount of ₹11,000. It’s expected to be launched alongside the recently-revealed Grand i10 Nios Facelift hatchback.
