    Hyundai Aura Variant Wise Features 


    Hyundai Aura E Variant

    The Aura’s base variant -- E -- offers all the basic safety features that the modern-day cars are supposed to offer. These include - Dual Front Airbags, ABS with EBD, Reverse Parking Sensors, Seatbelt Reminder and Speed Alert System. Apart from these, the Aura E also offers Emergency Stop Signal, which gets activated in case of extreme braking. The Aura also gets driver and passenger side seat belt pretensioners and load limiters; moreover, there’s also ISOFIX seat anchorage for those who have small children and use child seats.

    In terms of functional features, the Aura E comes with features such as Front Power Windows, Front Power Outlet, Front & Rear Room Lamps, bottle holders on the doors, Adjustable rear seat headrests, Tachometer and Cooled glove box. This variant offers a manual AC, but lacks a music system. 

    In terms of styling features, the base E variant offers a silver finished front grille, LED DRLs, Chrome Garnish at the rear and Z Shaped LED Taillamps. The bumpers come in body colour, but the Door handles and ORVMs are black coloured. The interior features a 2-tone grey colour scheme.

    Since the Aura E is the entry level variant, it looks stripped both on the outside and inside. This variant lacks some basic features, such as: Music System, Wheel Covers, Body Coloured ORVMs and Handles, Rear Power Windows and Remote Key.

    We suggest you consider going for the next or a higher variant of the Aura over the base E variant.

    Hyundai Aura S Variant 

    The Aura petrol S variant comes for an additional premium of Rs 76,000 over the E variant, and offers a handful of added features.

You will get Headlamp Escort function as well in this variant, which makes the headlamps turn on automatically for some time upon door lock and unlock, so that you get a view of the road ahead of the car.

    In terms of entertainment features, the S variant comes with an Audio system with integrated Radio along with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, and steering mounted audio and Bluetooth controls. This audio system comes with 4 speakers.

    The price increase of the Aura S variant over the base E variant is worth it, as it offers value for money. According to our internal data, the S variant justifies its asking price with all its added features. As the S variant covers all the basic features that are trending in the current times and it is worth the upgrade over the E variant, we suggest you buy at least this variant of the Aura. However, if you can stretch your budget over the S variant, then you should definitely check the higher variants, as the S is not our top recommended variant.

    The Aura Petrol S variant is also available with the AMT type automatic transmission option. The S AMT variant offers 4 additional features over the features list of the MT version -- R15 Steel Wheel, Turn Indicators on Outside Mirrors, Electric Folding ORVM and Chrome Finish Gear Knob.

    The S AMT is around Rs 50,000 more expensive than the S MT version. If you are looking for an Aura petrol automatic variant, then you can choose the S AMT variant, as it offers all the basic as well as some additional important features.

    Before going to the next variant, it is important to note that the Aura S variant also comes with a company fitted CNG kit. This will cost you an additional premium of Rs 73,000. If you choose to fit in a CNG kit from the aftermarket, then it will be cheaper. However, we recommend that you spend a bit extra and choose the manufacturer fitted CNG version of the Aura, as this is a safer bet.

    Talking about functional features, the SX variant comes with Smart Keyless entry with Push Start button, Electric Folding ORVMs, Front Passenger Seat Back Pocket, Luggage Lamp and Passenger Vanity Mirror. 

    Styling elements of this variant includes 15-inch alloy wheels, Turn Indicators on ORVMs, Chrome finished outside door handles, Shark Fin Antenna, while on the interior there’s Metal Finished Inside Door Handles & Chrome Finish on the Gear Knob & Parking Lever Tip.

    The SX variant is Rs 74,000 more expensive than the S variant, and it's worth the additional premium as it adds in a lot of additional features. When compared with the base E variant, the SX variant again justifies its price difference. The Hyundai Aura Petrol SX variant is our top recommended variant, as it offers most of the preferred features that the buyers expect in a modern-day car. 

    Hyundai Aura SX+ AMT Variant

    By spending an additional Rs 75,000 over the SX variant’s price tag, you will get the SX Plus variant with the AMT automatic transmission.

    Compared to the SX manual variant, the SX+ AMT offers 3 additional features -- Projector Headlamps, Wireless Phone Charger and Automatic AC. The additional premium of the SX+ AMT over the SX MT is worth it, as it offers few additional features along with the AMT type automatic transmission.

    When compared to the price of the S AMT variant, the SX+ AMT costs around Rs 1 lakh more. The additional features of the SX+ variant over the S variant justify this price gap. Thus, the SX+ AMT is worth the additional premium whether compared to the SX MT or the S AMT variant.

    The Aura SX+ variant is also offered with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine option. This variant will cost you Rs 1.25 lakh more than the 1.2-litre SX variant. In this variant, apart from the more powerful turbocharged engine, you will also get 4 additional cosmetic add-ons, which make it appear sportier than the regular 1.2-litre petrol version. These features are: Glossy Black Surround on Grille, All Black Interiors with Red Inserts, Dark Grey Honeycomb Patterned Crashpad and Dark Grey Metal Finish Door Handles.

    Moreover, the SX+ Turbo also offers 3 more added features over the SX variant. These are: Wireless Phone Charger, Projector Headlamps and Automatic AC.

    It is important to note here, that although the Aura’s 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine is more powerful than the 1.2-litre engine, it is not a hardcore performance oriented version. This is because this variant gets the same suspension and handling characteristics as that of the regular Aura. We feel that for the 1.0-litre engine and some cosmetic updates and features the additional premium of Rs 1.25 lakh is not worth spending.

    Which Variant Of The 2020 Hyundai Aura Petrol Should You Buy?

    After assessing all the variants of the Hyundai Aura petrol, the SX is our top recommended variant. This is because it offers you all the required features that will enhance your drive experience, while also offering some good-to-have modern-day features. Moreover, the SX variant justifies its price difference over the S, and even the base E variant. 

    In case you don’t wish to extend your budget to get the SX variant, then you can settle for the S variant, as the S variant also justifies its value over the base E variant. As for the SX(O) variant, it doesn’t justify its cost and we wouldn’t recommend it.

    For those who wish to opt for the automatic transmission of the Aura, there are 2 options to choose from - S AMT and SX+ AMT. Although the S AMT covers all the basic required features, we recommend to go for the SX+ AMT variant instead. 

    For those buyers who wish to go for the CNG version, there’s just a sole S variant of the Aura. The S variant comes with a company fitted CNG kit. This would be a bit expensive as compared over an aftermarket installed CNG kit, but it’s worth it if you wish to get the benefit of the manufacturer warranty.

    Finally, for the buyers who are looking for better performance and sportier interior, there’s only the SX+ 1.0L Turbo Petrol variant to opt for.
