Published On Jan 24, 2023 08:00:00 AM

Hyundai has launched the facelift of its popular compact sedan, the Aura at Rs 8.29 lakh (ex-showroom). It follows the launch of the hatchback on which it is based, the Grand i10 Nios, and gets similar equipment and powertrain options. 

The closest rivals of the Aura are the Tata Tigor, Honda Amaze and Maruti Suzuki Dzire. We compare the four compact sedans to see which one fares better on paper: 

Hyundai Aura vs rivals: dimensions

Hyundai Aura vs rivals: dimensions
Model Hyundai Aura Tata Tigor Honda Amaze Maruti Suzuki Dzire
Length 3995mm 3993mm 3995mm 3995mm
Width 1680mm 1677mm 1695mm 1735mm
Height 1520mm 1532mm 1501mm 1515mm
Wheelbase 2450mm 2450mm 2470mm 2450mm
Kerb weight 1033kg 957kg 915kg
Boot space 419-litres 420-litres 378-litres

As they are all compact sedans, all comply with the sub-4m rule to get excise benefits. Among them, the Tigor is the shortest, at 3,993mm, and is just 2mm shorter than the rest. The same is not true when comparing the wheelbase of all the four, where the Hyundai, Tata and Maruti, all have a wheelbase of 2,450mm, while the Honda measures 20mm more than the others, benefiting the occupants with more leg space. 

The Maruti Suzuki Dzire is also the widest of the lot at 1,735mm, which means the passengers will have more shoulder room. The Amaze is the second widest of the lot, measuring 1,695mm, and is closely followed by the facelifted Aura (1,680mm) and Tigor (1,677mm). Surprisingly, the Tigor, which has lacked behind in all other dimensions, is the tallest of the lot at 1,532mm, while the shortest out of the four is the Amaze which measures 1,501mm. 

While the weight and boot space of the facelifted Hyundai Aura is currently unavailable, the Tigor is the heaviest here, at 1,033kg, and the Dzire is the lightest, at 915kg. The Amaze has the largest boot space, at 420 litres, followed closely by the Tigor, at 419 litres. As of now, the Dzire has the smallest boot at 378 litres.

The Honda Amaze is the only compact sedan in the segment right now that does not offer a CNG powertrain. It also the only one here to offer a CVT gearbox, while all others get an AMT. While the Tigor has a three-cylinder engine, displacing 1,199cc, the Aura and Dzire have 1,197cc, four-cylinder engines and the Amaze has a 1,199cc, four-cylinder unit. 

In terms of power, the Honda and Maruti compact sedans are at par making 90hp each. The Dzire CNG is also the most powerful of the lot, making 77hp. The Aura makes the least amount of power here, at just 83hp, which is 3hp lower than the Tigor and 7hp lower than the Amaze and Dzire.
