Laxmi Intercontinental Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributors of Hyundai vehicles in Nepal, has officially launched the new compact sedan “Hyundai Aura” which is based on Grand i10 Nios. However, keeping eye on the not so demanding sedan segment, Hyundai has only launched the single 1.2L Kappa Dual VTVT Petrol Engine variant of the sedan which is BS6 Compliant borrowed from the i10 Nios.
The vehicle looks similar to the i10 as it gets the same Boomerang shaped DRLs integrated with Premium Satin Front Grille with Projector Fog Lamps. The side profile is extended and gets Coupe like styling. On the rear, it gets a wide stance, robust sporty bumper design, and Stylish Z Shaped LED Tail Lamp.
The interior seems to be upmarket as it gets a dual-tone interior and simply laid out. It features an 8-inch infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, climate control, steering-mounted audio controls, a wireless phone charger, a semi-digital instrument panel, a multi-info display, rear climate vent, as well as keyless entry with push-button start.
Hyundai Aura “S” variant is powered by a BSVI-compliant 1.2L Kappa Dual VTVT Petrol Engine which generates a max power of 83 PS at 6000rpm and max torque of 113.76 Nm at 4000rpm, mated to a 5-speed automatic transmission.
