When I say compact sedan from Hyundai, well, you might be thinking of the Hyundai Xcent. Well, that car has a successor now, in the form of the Hyundai Aura which, if you haven’t made out already, is based on the Grand i10 Nios. But there are new things that are being offered with this car to make it lucrative to the compact sedan buyer in India. So we took it out for a drive to find out what are these new features, how is it to drive and to find out the answer to the big question – whether this is going to be worth your money?
Let’s start with the design of the Hyundai Aura. While from the front it looks similar to the Grand i10 Nios, it does get a redesigned bumper and different detailing to the grille, which has been given a silver bezel. You also get the same swept-back projector headlamps along with projector fog lamps but perhaps the biggest differentiator from the front is the fact that the Aura gets twin Boomerang-shaped LED DRLs instead of one that you get on the Grand i10 Nios.
