The Hyundai Aura is currently priced from Rs 5.97 lakh to Rs 9.35 lakh (ex-showroom), and rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, among other sub-4m sedans

The Hyundai Aura was launched in the Indian market as a replacement for the Xcent sub-4m sedan in the month of January 2020. So far, the sedan has managed to perform fairly well in its segment that consists of the likes of Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, Ford Aspire as well as the Tata Tigor.

In April 2021, Hyundai managed to sell 3,288 units of the Aura sub-4m sedan in the Indian market, which means that the car was the fifth best-selling Hyundai car in the country for the said month. With the ever-growing market trend of SUVs, manufacturers are shifting their focus towards producing more and more affordable high-riding vehicles, and due to that, sedans have taken the biggest hit as far as sales are concerned.

However, the sub-4m sedan space still manages to attract a fair amount of buyers, considering the affordability, as well as the unavailability of SUVs at this price point. The Hyundai Aura emerged as the third highest-selling car in its segment in April 2021, only behind Maruti Suzuki Dzire and Honda Amaze.
