    2020 Hyundai Aura Vs Honda Amaze - Specs, Dimension, Feature Comparison

    by Mahesh Yadav Dates: 24 Dec 2019

    Now that Hyundai has shown us what the Aura looks like, you might be wondering how it compares with the Honda Amaze. Let’s compare the engine specs, dimensions, features and estimated prices to see which car you should buy.


    2020 Hyundai Aura Vs Honda Amaze

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze - Dimensions Comparison

    The Aura and the Amaze are almost 4 metres in length. The Aura is an inch taller while the Amaze is 1.5cm wider. The Honda Amaze has a slightly larger boot capacity at 420 litres. But where it really shines is in legroom as it has a 15cm longer wheelbase.

    So, in the comparison of the dimensions, the Honda Amaze is either comparable or better than the Hyundai Aura.

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze - Petrol Engine Spec Comparison

    The Honda Amaze has an advantage over the Aura’s 1.2-litre normal petrol engine as it has more power. But, it has less torque and the peak torque also comes higher at 4800rpm. So, while the Honda’s engine might be more enjoyable to drive enthusiastically, the Hyundai’s engine will help you crawl better in a traffic jam.

    If you want more power, then you can take the Aura’s 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. It has a higher power output but more importantly, it has significantly better torque output covering the low and mid-range of the rev band.

    If you want a smooth automatic transmission, then you can go with the slightly more expensive CVT automatic. For most of the buyers, though, the Aura’s cheaper 5-speed AMT will do just fine. So, the Hyundai Aura’s petrol engines should cover the needs of most buyers - even those who want some performance from their subcompact sedan.

    The Aura will have BS6 petrol engines from day one, but the Amaze will also soon get BS6 update ahead of the April 1, 2020 deadline.

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze - Diesel Engine Spec Comparison

    Comparing the diesel engines is again a lot like comparing the petrol engines of the two cars. The Honda Amaze’s 1.5-litre diesel engine has more power and torque - if you want the manual transmission. With the refined CVT automatic transmission, the power output drops from 100PS to 80PS and the torque output drop from 200Nm to 160Nm.

    While most of you will appreciate the finesse of a CVT, you’ll probably do just fine with the Aura’s cheaper AMT type automatic. It offers more torque and costs less too.

    The Aura also has an advantage over the Amaze as it has BS6 engines. The Amaze’s diesel engines will also get the BS6 update sometime in 2020. But, for now, we don’t know if you’ll be able to buy a subcompact sedan with a diesel engine in April 2020. The Amaze diesel automatic is likely to get better power and torque figures with the BS6 update. For, now, the Aura just seems to offer a well-rounded package that’ll better serve most buyers most of the time.

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze - Feature Comparison

    As of today (Dec 23, 2019), we do not know exactly what features the 2020 Hyundai Aura will have in its top variant. But we know that it’s based on the Grand i10 Nios, so, we can assume that it’ll borrow almost all of the Nios’ features and get a few extras.

    We can expect the two cars to have the following features in common:

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze Common Features


    Entertainment & Style


    Dual Front Airbags

    15-inch Alloy Wheels

    Tilt Steering

    • 8-inch touchscreen (1-inch larger)
    • Wireless phone charging
    • Projector fog lamps
    • Projector headlamps
    • Rear AC vents

    On the other hand, the Amaze has the following unique features:

    • Cruise control

    Clearly, the Hyundai Aura has a bunch of exclusive features to offer and it easily wins this feature comparison with the Honda Amaze.

    2020 Hyundai Aura vs Honda Amaze - Price Comparison

    The Honda Amaze’s prices are as follows:

    Honda Amaze PRICES (Jan 2020) Ex-Showroom Delhi


    Petrol MT

    Petrol AT

    Diesel MT

    Diesel AT


    Rs. 5.93 lakh


    Rs. 7.05 lakh



    Rs. 6.73 lakh

    Rs. 7.63 lakh

    Rs. 7.85 lakh

    Rs. 8.65 lakh


    Rs. 7.33 lakh

    Rs. 8.23 lakh

    Rs. 8.45 lakh

    Rs. 9.25 lakh


    Rs. 7.81 lakh

    Rs. 8.64 lakh

    Rs. 8.93 lakh

    Rs. 9.66 lakh


    We don’t know the prices of the Hyundai Aura yet. But we expect its normal petrol 1.2-litre variants to cost between, Rs. 5.5 lakh and Rs. 7.6 lakh with manual transmission. The turbo petrol engine could cost Rs. 80,000 more and therefore the top variant with this engine could cost Rs. 8.4 lakh.

    The 1.2-litre diesel engine variants could carry a premium of Rs. 1.1 lakh over comparable petrol variants. So, the prices could start at Rs. 6.6 - 6.7 lakh. Meanwhile, the AMT automatic could cost Rs. 50 - 60,000 more than its equivalent manual transmission variant.

    The Honda Amaze is the car to beat for the Hyundai Aura as the Amaze is currently the second most popular choice among subcompact sedan buyers. So, let’s hope Hyundai prices the Aura aggressively to become a car you would want to seriously consider.

    For now, we don’t know the prices of the Aura, so we can’t say which car is better in this comparison of prices.

    Winner: None

    The Amaze has better dimensions as it has a longer wheelbase and bigger boot. But, the Aura has better petrol engine and transmission options and a longer feature list. Without a doubt, the 2020 Hyundai Aura comes across as a better car. Its prices will make it or break it. Until Hyundai declares the prices of the Aura, it seems to beat the Amaze in most areas based on what we know so far.
