The Hyundai Aura 1.0-litre turbo-petrol manual has a claimed fuel efficiency of 20.5kmpl. But can it stay true to the claimed figure in real-world driving conditions?

Hyundai’s newest sub-4m sedan, the Aura, was launched in January 2020 at a price of Rs 5.79 lakh to Rs 9.22 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Hyundai offers the Aura with three BS6-compliant engines: 1.2-litre petrol and diesel, and a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol (only in the SX+ variant priced at Rs 8.54 lakh ex-showroom Delhi). While the 1.2-litre petrol and diesel engines are offered with both a 5-speed MT and AMT, the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit is offered only with a 5-speed MT. We recently tested the turbocharged version of the Aura for its fuel efficiency. Let’s take a look at the engine specs, the claimed fuel efficiency, and the actual fuel efficiency of the Aura we tested:

ngine Displacement 1.0-litre turbo-petrol
Power 100PS
Torque 172Nm
Transmission 5-speed MT
Claimed fuel efficiency 20.5kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (city) 14.71kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (highway) 20.44kmpl

As per our test, the Aura fell short by almost 6kmpl in the city, but almost matched its claimed fuel-efficiency figure when driven on the highway.

Now let’s take a look at how it faired in mixed driving conditions:

Mileage City:Highway (50:50) City:Highway (25:75) City:Highway (75:25)
17.10kmpl 18.62kmpl 15.81kmpl

If your major usage is restricted to the city with light highway journeys, the Aura will return a fuel-efficiency figure of almost 16kmpl. However, if you use the sedan mainly on wide stretches of roads and highways, the fuel efficiency should go up by almost 3kmpl. In case your travel is equally split between the city and highway, expect the Aura to deliver a mileage of around 17kmpl.

Do note that these figures may vary depending on the road, driving, climate conditions, and the car’s health. If you own an Aura 1.0-litre turbo-petrol manual, please feel free to share your findings with us in the comment section below.
