Hyundai Alcazar will be powered by a 1.5-litre diesel and 2.0-litre petrol engine. It will rival with the likes of Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus.
The Korean carmaker Hyundai revealed its all-new 7-seater SUV Alcazar in pre-production avatar earlier this month. The Hyundai Alcazar is also known as the 7-seater version of Creta, and it is the company’s first 7-seater SUV in a very long time. The automaker was all set to introduce the production-spec model of the SUV by the end of this month, with the price being announced shortly after the official reveals of the SUV. Nevertheless, the carmaker has postponed the launch of Alcazar in India and is likely to hit our shores by the end of next month. The carmaker has made this move after looking at the increasing cases of COVID-19 across the country.
The production-spec model of the SUV will have a lot in common with Hyundai Creta. Body panels like front fenders, bonnet and all four doors are also quite identical to that of the Creta. The most significant change can be seen after the C-pillar. The front fascia of Hyundai Alcazar gets a unique looking grille with the diamond-studded pattern. The front bumper of the SUV has also been slightly updated. At the back, it gets a distinct rear quarter glass area, and the carmaker even managed to retain the ‘lightning arc’ element of Hyundai Creta. Moreover, it also seems to be more proportionate because of the longer rear overhang. The sloping roofline of the SUV has now been gone, and the taillamps are much more upright than before.
It employs new wrap-around LED taillights and a revised rear bumper with faux dual exhaust tips. However, the carmaker has not officially unveiled the dashboard design of the SUV, but the design sketches revealed previously shows that it looks almost similar to that of the Creta. The all-new Hyundai Alcazar will be offered in both 6- and 7-seater configuration. In the 6-seater trim, the SUV will get two captain seats in the middle row, while the 7-seater version will employ a bench in the second row. In the Indian market, it will rub shoulders with the likes of Tata Safari and MG Hector Plus.
