The Alcazar also available in six colour options – Taiga Brown, Polar White, Titan Grey, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black and Starry Night.
Customers will also have a dual-tone scheme option for the Polar White and Titan Grey shades.
The Alcazar’s exterior has slight design adjustments to distinguish it from the Creta.The SUV features a new grille, redesigned front bumper, prominent rear quarter window, new wraparound taillights, a somewhat more upright tailgate, false dual exhaust tips, and 18-inch alloy wheels are among the changes.
The Hyundai Alcazar measures 4500 mm in length, 1790 mm in width and 1675 mm in height (with roof rails). It also has a wheelbase of 2760 mm which is 150 mm longer than the Hyundai Creta which it is based on.
The Hyundai Alcazar comes with a vast range of amenities, some of which are segment firsts. The SUV comes with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a panoramic sunroof, a lane change camera, a 360-degree camera, in-built middle-row sun shades, ISOFIX child seat mounts, wireless phone charging, automatic climate control and Hyundai’s connected car tech amongst the other features.
The interiors of the Alcazar are available in a dual-tone black and brown colour scheme, the 6- seater will feature a distinctive floor-mounted centre armrest with cupholders, a wireless phone charger, and additional storage space.
The Alcazar is available with both a petrol and a diesel engine under the hood. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine produces 159hp and 192 Nm. The diesel engine, is a 1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged unit found in the Creta, delivering 115hp and 250 Nm but with a different state of tune.
Both engines come with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai also boasts that the Alcazar can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.5 seconds when equipped with a petrol manual transmission. The three-row SUV also comes with three different drive modes: Comfort, Eco, and Sport, as well as three different traction control modes: Sand, Snow, and Mud.
When it comes to fuel economy, the petrol manual version returns 14.5 kmpl, while the automatic version returns 14.2 kmpl. The diesel engine is even more efficient, returning 20.4 kpl with the manual transmission and 18.1 kmpl with the automatic. According to Hyundai, this makes the Alcazar the most fuel-efficient SUV in its class.
The Hyundai Alcazar now competes with other three-row SUVs such as the MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari, and Mahindra XUV500. With the launch of the new Mahindra XUV700 later this year, this segment is expected to become even more competitive.
