Check out our on-paper comparison of the soon-to-launch Hyundai Alcazar and its 5-seater sibling, Hyundai Creta
Hyundai has officially started accepting bookings for the Alcazar, and the prices are scheduled to be announced later this month. The new SUV is essentially a three-row version of the Creta, which will compete with the likes of MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari, and Mahindra XUV500 upon launch in our market.
There are plenty of similarities between the upcoming Hyundai Alcazar and the Creta, but there are many differences as well, which we’ve discussed in our comparison below.
Hyundai Alcazar Vs Creta – Exterior
The exterior and interior design of the Alcazar is mostly the same as Creta, with only a few changes. It gets the same split headlamps, but with a chrome strip running in the middle that merges into the front grille. The grille design has been updated slightly as well, and the bumpers (front and rear) have also been restyled.
The new model is noticeably longer than the Creta, thanks to the extra seats at the back. At the rear, we also see new wraparound taillamps, along with a more upright tailgate. Also, The Alcazar comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, while the Creta gets 17-inch alloy rims.

The exact dimensions of the soon-to-launch Hyundai Alcazar aren’t available yet. However, the manufacturer has revealed that its wheelbase length is 2,760mm, which is 150mm longer than that of the Creta.
Hyundai Alcazar Vs Creta – Interior
The Alcazar will come loaded with features like a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system (with Apple Carplay and Android Auto), a fully digital instrument console from Palisade, connected car tech, lane change camera, driving modes, traction control modes, automatic climate control, power-adjustable driver seat, a panoramic sunroof, blind view monitor etc.
The Creta gets a lot of the same features as the Alcazar; it offers a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, connected car tech, power-adjustable driver seat, automatic climate control, panoramic sunroof, driving modes, traction control modes, etc. However, it misses out on the lane watch camera, and its instrument console is a semi-digital unit.
The interior design of Creta and Alcazar is quite similar, save for the different colour themes, and the additional third-row seating on the latter. Also, the Alcazar will be available in both 6-and 7-seat configurations, and the 6-seater models would get folding tables behind the first row seats. It will also get a first-in-segment wireless smartphone charger in the second row.
