Hyundai has revealed the new 7-seater Alcazar SUV ahead of its global debut and launch in the Indian market. The Hyundai Alcazar is based on Creta’s platform, but it gets several new design elements. Hyundai has also revealed the features and engine specifications of the three-row SUV.
The Hyundai Alcazar has a wheelbase of 2,760mm, and it is the longest wheelbase in its segment. On the design front, the 7-seater SUV gets a redesigned front grille, revamped front bumper, wraparound tail lights, skid plate and faux dual exhaust tips at the rear. The SUV is equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels.
The Alcazar will be available in both 6-seater and 7-seater configurations. The 6-seater variant will get captain seats in the second-row, while the 7-seater variant will get a bench seat for the second-row.
The interior of the SUV will feature a dual-tone theme. Other features include a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats, AC vents on all three rows and much more.
The Hyundai Alcazar will draw power from 2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The petrol engine produces 157bhp and 191Nm of torque, while the oil burner is good for 113bhp and 250Nm of torque. Transmission options include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic gearbox offered with both engines.
The Alcazar also gets a tweaked suspension setup with a hydraulic rebound stopper in the front strut. The upright reach shock absorber is said to improve the handling with better body control.
Expect Hyundai to launch the Alcazar in India in the coming weeks. When launched in India, the 7-seater SUV will take on the likes of MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari and Mahindra XUV500.
