Hyundai Alcazar Features Revealed, Booking Open Now
According to our sources, Hyundai shall disclose the price of its next SUV Alcazaron on 18 June 2021. The Hyundai Alcazar was previously scheduled to launch in April but it was delayed in most Indian states because of the COVID-19 limitations. Hyundai has also officially begun to take Alcazar booking at a cost of Rs 25,000.
The Alcazar is marketed in six different varieties – Prestige, Prestige (O), Platinum, Platinum (O), Signature, and Signature – sources tell us (O). An automated gearbox is included in all ‘O’ models, while manual gearboxes are provided in the regular trim. In 6 external paint shades – Taiga Brown, Typhoon Silver, Polar White, Titan Grey, Phantom Black, and Starry Night – the Alcazar will also be available, with a double-tone scheme with 2 colors (white and grey).
A long list will be provided of features, including a 10.25″ digital instrument cluster, an Android Auto and Apple CarPlay 10.25″ touch-screen infotainment system, Hyundai connected car technology, a lane changing camera, a 360-degree photo, a sunroof panorama, ISOFIX child sitting mounts, wireless telephone cable, and the latest versions of all the features.
As already stated, the Alcazar receives an extra seat row, which either has 6 seats (the second seat is equipped with captain’s chairs) or 7 seats (with second-row seat bench seats). The interior is also available in a double color black and brown color scheme, with a distinctive floor-mounted center armrest with cupholder and an additional storage area for the version with captain’s seats.
In order to accommodate the extra row of sitting, the Alcazar has a larger wheelbase – 2760mm (150mm more than the Crete). On the outside, slight adjustments in the style assist to distinguish it from the Crete. They feature a somewhat more upright tailgate, fake twin exhaust tips, and a bigger set of 18-inch alloy wheels (compared to the Creta’s 17-inches), a retrofitted grill, and a revised front bumper, a noticeable rear quarter window.
The Alcazar’s petrol engine is an upgraded and more powerful version of the 2.0 liter 4-cylinder Elantra and Tucson units which make 159hp and 192Nm. Hyundai says that in 9.5 seconds, the Alcazar 2.0 petrol will do a 0-100 kph sprint. The 1,5 liter, 4-cylinder, turbo-loaded diesel engine from Crete will generate 115hp and 250Nm, albeit it is adjusted differently. Both engines have either a 6-speed manual or an automated 6-speed transmission. To discover what it’s like to drive you may read our review on the Hyundai Alcazar prototype.
The petrol manual returns 14,5kpl with the automated version returning 14,2kpl in terms of fuel economy. The diesel engine is especially thrifty because it returns 20.4kpl with the manual gearbox and 18.1kpl with the automatic engine. The Alcazar is, according to Hyundai, the most energy-efficient SUV in the class.
Tata Safari and the Mahindra XUV500 fight alongside Hyundai Alcazar, the MG Hector Plus, and the Mahindra. This year, after the arrival of the new Mahindra XUV700 on our market, it will be more competitive.
