India is a huge market for vehicles all over the world and every day more than 500 vehicles are sold or bought here. In such a situation, when a new vehicle is launched in the Indian market, there is definitely curiosity and if the vehicle is from Hyundai, then the excitement increases a little more. Hyundai launched its Hyundai Alcazar in June this year. The SUV can be specified in both 6- and 7-seater configurations. The Hyundai Alcazar comes in both diesel and petrol engines in the Indian market.
Hyundai Alcazar Engine
The Hyundai Alcazar is offered in India with two engine options. It gets a 2.0-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, which produces 156 bhp and 191 Nm of torque. The second diesel engine is 1.5-litre, which can generate 113 Bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. A 6-speed manual and an optional 6-speed automatic are offered with both units. The Alcazar offers three drive modes (Eco, City and Sport) and several traction modes (Snow, Sand and Mud).
Hyundai Alcazar Features
The Alcazar’s feature list includes a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, 10.25-inch touchscreen system, auto climate control, wireless phone charging and cruise control. Other features include ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, a voice-controlled panoramic sunroof and Hyundai’s BlueLink connected car technology. Hyundai’s SUV packs electronic stability control, up to six airbags, and front and rear parking sensors.
Hyundai Alcazar Exterior
Talking about the exterior of the Hyundai Alcazar, initially, the front will remind you of the Creta but if you look closely, there have been some changes in the design. For starters, the grille has been changed and replaced with cubes instead of a mesh grille, the bumper has been given a subtle change and the fog lamps have also got bigger. On the side, it gets new 18-inch diamond cut alloy wheels with bold cuts and creases. The rear of the Alcazar looks smart and will surely turn heads. The bumper cladding also gives it a sporty feel. Overall, the design of the Alcazar is modern and a bit futuristic and that doesn’t make the car unattractive.
Hyundai Alcazar Interior
Like the exteriors, the dashboard of the Alcazar also shares some similarities with the Creta but is not completely identical. The Alcazar gets a tan brown interior which gives a luxurious and premium look to the car, however, there is no soft touch material inside the cabin but the quality of the plastic is good and the textured brown plastic makes the cabin even more pleasant. The Alcazar gets a 10.25-inch screen in the instrument cluster with three distinctive subjects and a blind view monitor triggered by pressing the indicators. It also gets a 10.25-inch touchscreen in the centre console which is easy to use and has good readability. Another feature that sets the Creta apart is the panoramic sunroof which can be opened with a voice command. All these unique features make Alcazar more modern and advanced and make you feel like your money is well spent.
