Hyundai has officially started accepting bookings for the Alcazar, and the prices are scheduled to be announced later this month.

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 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.

Hyundai Alcazar Vs Creta – Specifications Comparison

Hyundai Alcazar will be offered with two engine choices in India – a 2.0L petrol and a 1.5L turbo-diesel. The former is the same motor that does duty on the Tucson and Elantra, but tuned for more power. The diesel motor is the same one that’s also available on the Creta.
