Hyundai Aura Enhances Safety: Six Airbags Now Standard Equipment

  • In India, the Hyundai Aura is available at a starting price of Rs. 6,43,700 (ex-showroom).
  • This car is offered with both petrol and CNG options.

A few days ago, the South Korean automaker, Hyundai, made a significant safety announcement. They declared that all their vehicles would now come equipped with six airbags as standard. This decision was revealed during an event held in Delhi where Hyundai also shared the safety rating of their recently launched Verna sedan.

The growing knowledge and concern for vehicle safety in India is reflected in this action. Hyundai has taken a bold step by ensuring that all their cars, including the sub-four-meter sedan, the Aura, are now equipped with six airbags as a standard safety feature.

Previously, some of Hyundai's models like the Exter, i20, i20 N Line, Verna, Creta, Alcazar, Tucson, Kona electric, and the Ioniq 5 already had six airbags as standard. However, certain models like the Aura, Grand i10 Nios, Venue, and the Venue N Line did not have this feature.

The Hyundai Aura, which is now equipped with this enhanced safety feature, is available in four different variants: E, S, SX, and SX(O). Customers can choose between petrol and CNG fuel options. The sedan is powered by a 1.2-liter petrol engine which generates 82bhp and 114Nm of torque in the petrol version and 68bhp and 95Nm of torque when running on CNG. All variants come with a five-speed manual gearbox as standard, and some variants offer an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) option.

Popular models including the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Honda Amaze, and Tata Tigor compete with the Hyundai Aura in the Indian market.
