A couple of weeks ago, Hyundai Corporation announced the debut of the new compact Aura sedan, which will be smaller and more affordable Solaris. Now there is information on the motor range of new items.

 The machine will be replaced by the Xcent model, and it will be mass-produced in India, and it is there that it will first of all go on sale. After that, Aura may appear in the Chinese market and other regions of Southeast Asia.

Regarding powertrains, then, as was previously assumed, they will come from the Grand i10 Nios hatchback. We are talking about a four-cylinder naturally aspirated 1.2-liter Kappa engine and a three-cylinder U2 CRDi turbodiesel of the same volume. Motors can operate in conjunction not only with a 5-speed manual transmission, but also with a robotic transmission. Engine performance has not yet been disclosed, however, according to foreign agencies, the gasoline engine will produce up to 83 hp, and diesel – up to 75 hp.

 Suddenly, a third engine appeared in the lineup – a 1.0-liter T-GDI three-cylinder gasoline turbo engine, which was borrowed from the Indian variation of the Hyundai Venue cross-country. Especially for a sedan, the power of the power unit will decrease from 120 to 100 hp.

According to the assumptions, the front of the Aura will be decorated in the style of the Grand i10 Nios: at the corners of the grille of the novelty there will be LED “boomerangs” of DRL. The back of the body is characterized by the presence of angular lights, which have additional luminous sections on the bottom. The niche for the license plate was moved from the boot lid to the bumper.

Hyundai Aura is due to debut on December 19th. At the moment, the cost is kept secret, but now it’s obvious that the new product will be cheaper than Solaris.
