Dimension Review

  • The Aura is longer than the Nexon by 2mm.
  • The Nexon is wider than the Aura by 131mm.
  • The Nexon is taller than the Aura by 86mm.
  • The Nexon has a longer wheelbase than the Aura; by 48mm.
  • The Aura has 52 litres more boot space than the Nexon.
  • The Nexon has 44mm more ground clearance than the Aura.
  • The Nexon’s higher ground clearance will help it better deal with the broken roads and its taller, wider body with bigger tyres gives it a stronger road presence
  • The Aura has a bigger boot but the Nexon’s folding rear seats allow it to carry bigger items.
  • Considering the price difference between these two cars, it’d be okay if the Aura can’t stand up to the Nexon.

The Hyundai Aura petrol manual has a mileage of 20.5kmpl while the automatic claims to deliver a fuel-efficiency figure of 20.3kmpl.

Aura also gets a 1.0 L, 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine that makes 100PS of maximum power and 172Nm of peak torque. It is available with a 5-speed manual transmission and returns a fuel-efficiency of 20.5kmpl.

Petrol Engine Review

  • The Nexon has a more powerful engine than the Aura.
  • The Nexons engine produces more torque than the Auras 1.2 petrol engine but it’s 2Nm less than the Aura turbo.
  • Besides, the lighter Aura has a significantly better torque-to-weight ratio than the Nexon and will have much stronger acceleration and better drivability than the Nexon.
  • However, this performance comes with a price tag. The Nexon gets a turbo petrol engine as standard while the Aura turbo is an expensive option and not the standard powertrain. The Aura turbo costs about Rs. 1.1 lakh more than the comparable normal petrol engine. A price of Rs. 60-70,000 would’ve been reasonable for this upgrade.
  • Besides a better acceleration, the Aura also has much more fuel-efficient engines. Its sleeker body may not have the road presence, but it also doesn’t have much drag from the wind and heavier kerb weight. The Tata Nexon has to deal with both of these issues.
