It now gets four airbags, ABS and EBD as standard, while six airbags, ESC and hill hold assist will be optional. Furthermore, the rear head restraints on the Aura are now adjustable and it also gets footwell lighting up in the front row. The instrument cluster has also been redesigned and now gets two analogue gauges for the speedometer and tachometer and gets a new, 3.5-inch multi-information display (MID) with a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS). 

    Hyundai has replaced the Vintage Brown colour option with Starry Night shade that is seen on the Verna, i20, Alcazar and Tucson. The Aura continues to be offered with an 8-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, rear AC vents, automatic climate control and a wireless charger.
