Hyundai Nepal has officially launched the new Hyundai Aura in Nepal.
Laxmi Intercontinental Pvt. Ltd., the authorized distributor of Hyundai vehicles in Nepal, has announced the arrival via a Facebook post. Due to the ongoing situation, the company has decided to launch the new sedan through its social channels.
The all-new Hyundai Aura brings in plenty of new features with a BS6 engine, trying to be the modern trendsetter. It brings forth a breathtaking design with superior comfort.
According to the Hyundai representative, the new Aura comes as a single variant. Moreover, the sedan is already available across all Hyundai showrooms.
On a side note, it is weird to see the arrival of a sedan, especially in a market dominated by SUVs.

The new Hyundai Aura features one of the captivating good looks, clearly setting it apart from the rest.
On the front, Aura comes with a Satin Silver Front Grille design alongside Twin Boomerang LED DRLs. Likewise, it also comes with a sharp headlamp and stylish chrome-surrounded foglamps.
The front section completes a mean and aggressive look.
Moving towards the side profile, Aura features a coupe-like stance with the blacked-out pillars. It gives off a modern floating roof appearance.
On the rear, it gets a stylish Z-shaped LED tail lamp. Everything is neatly packed with the rear chrome garnish with a unique center spread “AURA” branding.
Moving inside, Hyundai has included premium styles like the Dual-tone Grey Interiors and Satin Bronze Crash Pad. Both the exterior and interior relishes superior styling.

Hyundai has proudly included the same engine in the Hyundai Grand i10. Thus, it does get the same engine with a similar level of performance.
Hyundai Aura comes with several awesome features, a few of them are first-in-the-segment and best-in-the-segment. Combing these features together, Aura sets itself as a strong body structure and state-of-the-art safety features.

Hyundai Aura Price in Nepal and Availability
As of this writing, the Hyundai Aura is now available in Nepal. Unfortunately, there wasn’t any major event that one would normally expect. But something is better than nothing, right?
As for the pricing, the Hyundai Aura price in Nepal is set at Rs. 35,96,000.
If you consider the sheer number of features on offer, at least at this price point, Hyundai Aura seems like a great deal.
But there’s a catch!
It’s a sedan, not a hatchback or an SUV. Let’s not forget that these are appealing to Nepali customers over the sedan.
Well, Hyundai claims it to be a sedan. Sadly, the styling looks a little awkward, ensuing in a mismatch between the front and the rear section. The front looks like a hatchback whereas the rear looks like something.
I think Hyundai Nepal knows about this as well, that’s why we get a single variant of the Hyundai Aura.
In any case, the Aura is feature-loaded which makes it an appealing sedan, especially in a market where companies hide their features behind options and variants.
