Hyundai Creta 7-seater has been recently spied while getting tested. The all-new Hyundai SUV will be powered by multiple engine options.
South Korean automaker, Hyundai is working on the 7-seater version of the Creta. It is expected to be called as Alcazar. In a recent spy video, we get to see a first clear look at the back of the upcoming SUV. The test mule is heavily camouflaged, so we can’t get an idea of how the SUV will look on the road. This video has been uploaded on the YouTube channel of Motorbeam. Hyundai Alcazar will be Korean automakers first 7-seater SUV. In the company’s stable, it will sit below Tucson, which is their flagship SUV. The Alcazar is expected to hit the India shores by the second half of this year.
In the spy video, one can see the revised taillight. The 7-seater Hyundai Creta also gets roof rails and new diamond-cut alloy wheels. It will employ split LED taillights, a shark-fin antenna and a high-mounted brake light. The SUV will also get a redesigned bumper. As compared to the regular version of Creta, the rear overhang of Alcazar is pretty long. The new design of the SUV helps in offering more headroom and legroom for the third-row passengers. Furthermore, the rear quarter glass of the SUV is bigger, so the passengers sitting in the last row do not feel claustrophobic. The front fascia of the SUV will employ C-shaped LED DRLs and LED headlights, whereas the grille will be revised to have more chrome by which it will look more premium. The side blinkers and fog lamps are positioned in the lower part of the bumper.
Mechanically, it will derive power from a 1.5-litre petrol and diesel engine. The former will develop 115 PS of power and 144 Nm of peak torque, while the former is capable of shredding out power and torque outputs of 115 PS and 250 Nm. The SUV will also get propelled by a 1.4-litre turbocharged gasoline mill, which puts out 140 PS and 242 Nm of twisting force. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed MT as standard. The NA petrol mill will also come paired with a CVT gearbox. The diesel mill will be offered with a torque converter, while the turbo petrol unit will come mated to a 7-speed DCT.
