2023 Hyundai Aura facelift gets cosmetic changes and new equipment with improved safety quotient

Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has today announced the commencement of bookings for the facelifted Aura with an initial token of Rs. 11,000 at authorised dealerships and online. The compact sedan comes with visual changes and a host of new features. Speaking on the new model, Tarun Garg, Chief Operating Officer, Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said,

“The contemporary and trendy value proposition of the new Hyundai AURA is poised to create comfortable driving experiences for our accomplished and progressive customers. We are confident that the new Hyundai AURA will redefine benchmarks in the Indian market while embodying HMI’s dedication to customer safety and convenience. This new compact Sedan is the culmination of our efforts to fulfill and elevate customer aspirations as new age buyers seek out products that truly add meaningful experiences to their lives.”

The 2023 Hyundai Aura gains a new black painted radiator front grille and revised LED Daytime Running Lights mounted on the bumper. The redesigned bumper adds to the styling quotient of the sub-four-metre sedan, which rides on newly designed 15-inch dual-tone styled steel wheels in the mid-spec trim and diamond-cut alloy wheels in the top-end variants.

Other exterior updates are chromed-out door handles and blackened B-pillars and chrome garnished rear giving a more premium vibe. The cabin of the compact sedan features glossy black inserts, chrome finish on the gear knob and parking lever tips, metallic finish to the inside door handle, a leather-wrapped gear knob and a multifunctional steering wheel, etc.

With no proportional changes, the 2023 Hyundai Aura continues to measure a length of 3,995 mm, a width of 1,680 mm and a height of 1,520 mm with a wheelbase length of 2,450 mm. The improved safety package meant that the Aura facelift comes with segment-first features such as six airbags as an option (four airbags standard) along with automatic headlamps and burglar alarm.

Other highlights are Tyre Pressure Monitoring System in Highline, ESC (Electronic Stability Control), VSM (Vehicle Stability Management) and Hill Start Assist Control (HAC) as standard in the AMT trim and they are optional in the five-speed manual variant. The cabin comes with an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility as well as voice recognition and Bluetooth.

Customers will also get a 3.5-inch speedo with MID, USB-C fast charger, footwell lighting, steering wheel with mounted controls, front disc brakes, wireless smartphone charger, smart key with push button engine start/stop, cruise control and electrically adjustable and folding wing mirrors. With the diesel engine discontinued, the new Aura continues to feature the tried and tested 1.2-litre Kappa petrol engine.

It develops 83 PS at 6,000 rpm and 113.8 Nm at 4,000 rpm when paired with a five-speed MT or an AMT. The CNG variant is good enough for 69 PS at 6,000 rpm and 95.2 Nm at 4,000 rpm and is hooked only with a five-speed manual gearbox. The 2023 Hyundai Aura rides on front McPherson Struts and a coupled torsion beam axle rear as well as gas-type shock absorber.

Upon launch, it will be available in six single-tone paint schemes namely Polar White, Titan Grey, Typhoon Silver, Starry Night (New), Teal Blue and Fiery Red.
