Hyundai Alcazar will be offered with a 2.0-litre petrol motor and a 1.5-litre diesel engine, and it will rival the likes of 2021 Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus.
In the coming days, Hyundai will globally reveal its all-new SUV named Alcazar. We have now got some fresh details regarding its engine and transmission options. Hyundai Alcazar will be offered in the mid-size SUV segment and will rub shoulders against the likes of MG Hector Plus and new-gen Tata Safari. It will be offered in 6-seater and 7-seater configurations. The upcoming Hyundai Alcazar will be quite different from the regular 5-seater Creta sold in the Indian market. It will not derive power from Creta’s 1.5-litre NA petrol and 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol unit. It will get propelled by a 2.0-litre petrol motor, which is capable of shredding out 152 Bhp of peak power. This is the same power plant, which does duties in Hyundai Tucson and Elantra in India. Transmission duties will be done by a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
This is the same 2.0-litre gasoline engine, which propels the Creta in some international markets. On the other hand, it will get Creta’s 1.5-litre oil burner that produces a power output of 115 Bhp. Nevertheless, for better power delivery, we are pretty sure that this engine will be differently tuned. The engine will come paired with a 6-speed MT or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Talking about its look, the all-new Hyundai Alcazar will feature some unique design elements along with a longer rear overhang, which will differentiate it from its regular 5-seater sibling. The cabin of the SUV will get a bigger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment unit with the latest smartphone connectivity features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Furthermore, it is also expected to get a bigger sunroof, which will offer a more airy feel to the cabin. The same infotainment unit will be used on the Alcazar, which is offered with the Hyundai Creta. The test mule of the SUV has been spied several times while getting tested on the Indian roads. The test car was heavily camouflaged, so not a lot of styling details are available, but one can expect the SUV to get a new grille with some premium chrome accents. It will also get a new set of alloy wheels and taillights. All these styling tweaks will definitely help the Hyundai Alcazar to look different from the regular 5-seater Creta. In the coming months, it will also see competition from the new-gen Mahindra Scorpio and XUV500.
