Hyundai Aura vs Tata Altroz – Specs, Dimensions & Features Comparison

Let’s compare the engine specs, dimensions, features and estimated prices to see which car you should buy.


2020 Hyundai Aura Vs Tata Altroz

Hyundai Aura vs Tata Altroz - Dimensions Comparison

The Hyundai Aura and the Tata Altroz are about equally long and tall. The Altroz has an upper hand with a wider body, which makes it easier to accommodate 3 passengers in the rear seat. The Altroz also has a longer wheelbase, which helps in liberating legroom for rear passengers. But, stretching the wheelbase comes at the cost of boot space as the wheel wells begin intruding into the boot area. The Aura makes it could with better boot space.

So, the Altroz seems to be winning this objectively. If you intend to frequently use the rear seat of the car and can don’t use the boot as much and as often, then the Altroz is the better car for you. However, if you frequently pick up or drop off friends and family from or to the airport, railway station or bus stands, then the Aura will serve you better.

Hyundai Aura vs Tata Altroz - Petrol Engine Spec Comparison

The Hyundai Aura has 2 petrol engine options - a 1.2-litre normal and a 1.0-litre turbo. The turbo wipes the floor clean with an amazing 172Nm torque that comes in early at 1500rpm and stays strong till 4000rpm. With this engine, you’ll never feel short on power and you can overtake pretty much anyone on the road with just a downshift and a heavy right foot.

On the flip side, the 1.2-litre normal petrol engine seems mediocre but it has refinement on its side. After all, it’s the only 4-cylinder petrol engine you can buy if you are considering these two cars. This is a refined, proven and time-tested workhorse of an engine that’s likely to serve you well for years to come. This is the oldest engine in this battle and that means this is most likely to outlive its rivals on reliability chart.

The Altroz’ 1.2-litre petrol engine is a great middle-ground between the Aura’s 2 petrol engines. It’s not as new as the Aura’s 1.0-litre turbo engine but not as old as the 1.2-litre 4-cylinder one either. This one has been around since 2016. It doesn’t deliver its peak torque as early as 1500rpm like the turbo but also doesn’t wait till 4000rpm. No turbo and intercooler also mean fewer things that can fail during the ownership. The only place where it falls short is with an automatic transmission - as in, it doesn’t have one at all. The Hyundai Aura offers a 5-speed AMT automatic with the 1.2-litre normal petrol engine. So, if you want an automatic, the Aura with the 1.2-litre petrol engine is your only option.

Hyundai Aura vs Tata Altroz - Diesel Engine Spec Comparison

In the diesel engine comparison, the Hyundai Aura seems to be lagging quite a bit. It has a lower displacement and a lower power output. The peak torque is almost there with the Altroz, but it takes its sweet time coming into action at 1750rpm. The Altroz brings in 200Nm of torque at a lowly 1250rpm and it stays strong till 3000rpm. So, the Altroz’ torque stays at its peak for 1750rpm while the Hyundai Aura’s peak torque stays in action for just 500rpm.

Tata Altroz

Without a doubt, the Altroz is the car that’ll perform better in the city as well as on the highway. Both the cars come with a 5-speed transmission but only the Hyundai Aura is available with a 5-speed AMT automatic.

So, if you clock the majority of your kilometres in bumper-to-bumper traffic, then go with the Aura. But, if you want better highway performance and are willing to shift yourself, then the Altroz should serve you better.
