Should You Buy Hyundai Aura Petrol Or CNG?

With the Aura CNG, you’ll sacrifice a little bit on the performance front as the car will has a lower power and torque output when running on CNG. You’ll also give up most of the boot space. Moreover, you might have to frequently visit the CNG station as the tank range is very less with CNG cars. If your city doesn’t have enough CNG stations, then the Aura CNG may not be feasible at all for you.

However, if you can live with these compromises, then you can recover the higher upfront cost of the CNG model in just under 50,000km.
