The Hyundai Aero City (hangul:현대 에어로시티) is a heavy-duty single-decker bus built by Hyundai Motor Company and primarily used as a city bus and a intercity bus as either a complete bus or a bus chassis. It is distinguishable by a front 'Aero City' badge, but the common Hyundai badge is usually on the rear. The model's principal competitors is the Daewoo BS/BM bus series, but it also competed against the now-discontinued Kia AM bus series (originally Asia AM).
