Should You Buy Hyundai Aura Normal Petrol Or Diesel?

With the Aura diesel manual as well as automatic, you’ll have to drive the car for about 80,000km to recover the higher cost you’re paying for the diesel engine. The Aura diesel will give you higher torque output, better drivability and longer tank range. But, if you don’t think you’ll drive the car for at least 70,000 - 80,000km, then you should consider buying the 1.2L petrol engine only.

If you don’t mind giving up a little bit of the driving range, performance/driveability and boot space, then you should consider buying the Aura CNG in the S variant. It’ll cost you less than the Aura diesel and the running cost per km is also lower with the CNG. The km to breakeven with Aura CNG is only 50,000km over the Aura petrol.
