Hyundai Aura is a power-packed sedan that is nowhere behind on the feature offerings too. This one comes with a dual-tone interior as we see on the i10 Nios as well. This gives it a sporty and premium look at the same time! On the centre console, we get an 8-inch infotainment system with smartphone connectivity.

The Dzire gets a BS6 compliant 1.2-litre petrol engine. Maruti Suzuki has already ditched the diesel engine as the BS6 norms have already kicked in. The Honda Amaze also gets a BS6 compliant 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine and 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine which complies to the new emission norms too!

We clearly see that the Hyundai Aura is priced way below than its competitors. In a market like India, price is the major thing that buyers consider while going for a new vehicle. The Hyundai’s candidate has got a major lead by winning in this segment! without further ado, let’s come to the final verdict.


The compact sedan segment is growing in popularity with each passing day. This segment is currently ruled by the Maruti Dzire as far as sales as considered. The Hyundai Aura is a new player and is gaining popularity real quick! This one delivers the premium features along with the sporty finish. The Aura doesn’t fail to impress any audience despite of their age groups. The features, comfort, convenience, sportiness, Hyundai Aura has them all!

Talking about the future, MS has already discontinued the diesel engine. Hyundai Aura has, therefore, got a chance to prove its mettle in the diesel segment. Also, the turbo variant is one of its kind feature that Hyundai has put on offer with this one! The pricing is also a major factor where the Korean automaker has smartly priced their compact sedan way below the competitors!

Engine options, safety, convenience, sporty finish or the premium feeling, Hyundai Aura delivers it all and is, therefore, better than the Maruti Dzire or the Honda Amaze according to us!
