It’s official. Hyundai Aura sub-4m sedan will get the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that debuted with the Venue. Since the Aura is a smaller car than the Venue and it’s from a lower segment too, we don’t expect the turbo petrol engine to make the same power as the Venue. The Venue 1.0-liter turbo makes 120PS of power at 6000rpm and 172Nm of torque between 1500 and 4000rpm. If Hyundai opts to lower the output for the Venue, the engine may make around 100PS of power, thus making it a powerful sub-4m petrol sedan. In this segment, only Tata Tigor JTP and Ford Aspire automatic make more than 100PS of power from a petrol engine.
The Hyundai Aura will also get the BS6-ready 1.2-litre 3-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, making it the first car in the sub-4m sedan segment to switch to BS6 tech. Hyundai has not revealed the Aura’s engine specs, however, we believe its power and torque output will be similar to the BS4 1.2-litre diesel engine. In the BS4 version, this engine makes 75PS of power at 4000rpm and 190Nm of torque between 1750 and 2500rpm.
Apart from the 1.0-litre petrol and 1.2-litre diesel engine, the Hyundai Aura will also get the BS6 upgraded 1.2-litre petrol engine. In the BS4 guise, it makes 83PS of power at 6000rpm and 115Nm of torque at 4000rpm.
All three engines (1.2-litre petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and 1.2-litre turbo diesel) will come with a 5-speed manual transmission. The Venue’s 1.0-litre turbo petrol variants come with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The Aura’s 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engines will also get an optional AMT automatic transmission. The turbo petrol won’t get any kind of automatic transmission.
