Hyundai Aura subcompact sedan is all set to hit Indian showrooms on 21st January, 2020. Ahead of its launch, the carmaker has begun accepting pre-orders for a sum of Rs 10,000. The all-new Hyundai Aura will share its platform, design bits and interior features with the newly-launched Grand i10 Nios hatchback.
The dashboard layout, controls and seats will be carried over from the hatchback. The compact sedan will feature an 8-0-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
For connectivity purpose, the Hyundai Aura will offer the iBlue audio remote smartphone application as we have seen in the Grand i10 Nios. The car will also get a 5.3-inch digital speedometer and MID, an Arkamys sound system, a rear centre armrest and wireless charging. There will be a driver rear view monitor projecting from the inside rear view mirror. Read – All-New Hyundai MPV Spotted For The First Time
