Then, it also has 1.0-litre turbo petrol from the Venue. While it makes 20PS of less power and has 1 less gear, it does make the same torque of 172Nm from 1500 to 4000rpm.

2020 Hyundai Aura vs Maruti Suzuki Dzire - Feature Comparison

As of today (Dec 23, 2019), we do not have a conclusive list of features of the Aura but we can guess what features it’ll get by looking at the Grand i10 Nios. It shares a lot with that hatchback and therefore should also get most of the features of the Nios and a few extra.

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

Prices of the Hyundai Aura aren’t out yet, but we expect the 1.2-litre normal petrol with manual transmission could range from Rs. 5.5 lakh and go up to Rs. 7.6 lakh. Variants with the turbo petrol engine could cost about Rs. 80,000 extra and top out at Rs. 8.4 lakh. The diesel range with the manual transmission could be priced Rs. 1.1 lakh more than the comparable petrol variants. The automatic transmission could add Rs. 50 - 60,000 more to the ex-showroom cost.

Maruti Suzuki Dzire

The sub-4m sedan segment is difficult to crack for all carmakers. Maruti Dzire maintains a strong lead in the segment with the Amaze in a distant second position. The Hyundai Aura will need to have an attractive price tag to put a notable dent in the Dzire’s sales.

We’re expecting the Aura to gain an upper hand with good prices for the Aura sedan. Since we don’t know the exact prices of the Aura, we can’t declare a winner in the price battle.

Winner: None

With comparable features and dimensions, the Aura looks like a car worth considering if you’re thinking of buying the Dzire. At the same time, the Hyundai Aura has a comparable 1.2-litre petrol engine and a torquey 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine. The choice of a more powerful turbo petrol engine alone tips the scale in Aura’s favour. The Aura will also have a BS6 diesel engine from day 1, which further gives the Hyundai Aura an upper hand. The Dzire has a BS4 diesel engine and it won’t be available after Apr 1, 2020. The wide choice of engine options makes the Aura a worthy contender in the sub-4m sedan space. Let’s just hope Hyundai doesn’t mess this up with unreasonably high price tags.

Overall Winner: Hyundai Aura
