The Hyundai Alcazar will compete with the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the next-generation Mahindra XUV500.
Hyundai has taken the wraps off the Alcazar 7-seater SUV. It will go on sale in India later this year.
The Alcazar shares its underpinnings with the Creta. It has a wheelbase of 2,760 mm, which is 150 mm more than the 5-seater Creta. The car also has a longer rear overhang that frees up space to accommodate the third row of seats.
In terms of design, the Alcazar has a similar front fascia to the Creta. However, it gets a diamond-studded pattern on the grille, redesigned front bumpers and different alloy wheels. At the rear, the SUV gets new wraparound tail lamps, dual exhausts and a skid plate.
The interior of the Alcazar will also seem familiar as it uses the same dashboard as the Creta. The car will be available in 6-seat and 7-seat configurations. The former gets separate captain seats in the second row with a centre console equipped with an armrest and cup holders between them. The third row of seats can recline and can also be folded flat for extra luggage space.
Hyundai Alcazar feature highlights:
- 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
- BlueLink connected car features
- Ventilated seats
- Panoramic sunroof
- Wireless phone charging
- Automatic climate control
- Rotary drive mode selector (Eco / City / Sport)
The Alcazar is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine producing 157 BHP / 192 Nm and a 1.5-litre diesel engine that puts out 113 BHP / 250 Nm. Both engines are offered with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai claims that the petrol version can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in less than 10 seconds.
The Hyundai Alcazar will compete with the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the next-generation Mahindra XUV500 in the Indian market.
