Hyundai Alcazar the 7-seat version of the Hyundai Creta is likely to go on sale this year. Here's a striking render of how it may look like.
The Hyundai Creta has been a very successful product for the Korean auto giant. It is consistently been at the top of the best selling compact SUVs in India and it just got an all-new generational update in 2020. It briefly lost its crown last year after the arrival of the Kia Seltos and MG Hector. The Creta already had polished dynamics and refined engines, and the new one only made it better with segment-leading features and modern styling. Seeing its success, Hyundai is developing a 7-seater version of the Creta to compete with rivals like the Ford Endeavour and the Toyota Fortuner. Today we have got this render on how it may look like.
The image above has been uploaded by Kia Seltos over on Instagram, and we can see a side profile render of the new Hyundai 7-seater, probably dubbed the Alcazar. The keen auto enthusiasts among you will notice that it looks a bit like a Range Rover, and is in fact based on the Velar. The render is pretty well done and we can see the new Creta’s front and rear end being edited in a smooth and flush manner. The Velar door handles have been replaced by the Creta ones and get a set of fetching silver alloys, a nice contrast to the all-black render. Also keep in mind that the launch-spec Alcazar probably won't have such an aggressive sloping roofline, as it will hinder headroom space for the third row of passengers.
The Hyundai Alcazar is slated to launch in 2021, though exact dates are unknown. It should look largely similar to the new Hyundai Creta and will get the same features or even add more to it. The Hyundai Creta is priced between Rs 9.9 lakh – Rs 17.31 lakh, ex-showroom. You can choose between 4 engines that are on offer – 3 petrol and 1 diesel. You get a 1.5-litre petrol making which makes 114 PS/144 Nm of max power and torque figures, the other slightly larger 1.5-litre makes the same figures as well. The range-topping 1.4-litre turbo petrol churns out 138 PS/242 Nm of peak power and torque. Meanwhile, the Diesel is a 1.5-litre four-pot which puts out max power and torque figures of 114 PS/250 Nm respectively and all the engines can be mated to a manual or an automatic transmission.
