Hyundai Motor India Restricted (HMIL) has now introduced the official name of its forthcoming seven-seater SUV centered on the top-offering Creta. Dubbed the Alcazar as anticipated, it will assist in expanding the brand’s SUV portfolio in India. Hyundai says the Alcazar has been developed to “personify dependability and indulgence” and attracts inspiration from the royal lineage of castles and palaces.

The brand emphasises spaciousness and solidity with the forthcoming three-row SUV and it is apparent that it will be positioned as a quality solution. It will slot underneath the Tucson in the domestic lineup and just higher than the five-seater Creta sibling.

Assume the Hyundai Alcazar to be priced from Rs. 11.50 lakh and it could go up to Rs. 19 lakh (ex-showroom). The 7-seater will be pitted in opposition to the newly introduced Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the following era Mahindra XUV500 upon arrival. The 2nd-greatest carmaker in the place suggests that the Alcazar is not just ‘made in India’ but ‘made first for India’.

When no formal day has been announced at the time of crafting, Hyundai confirms that the world debut of the Alcazar will come about in India “soon”. With the stretched seven-seater versions of the standard 5-seater mid-dimension SUVs seeing increased takers, it is no shock that Hyundai has jumped on the bandwagon faster than expected.

We do count on the Hyundai Alcazar to retain the very same 2,610 mm wheelbase length of the Creta though currently being more time and taller to accommodate the 3rd-row seating arrangement. It could be offered as a six-seater with center-row captain seating arrangement together with a seven-seat structure. Moreover a for a longer time roof, the rear finish will be redesigned with new LED tail lamps and an upright boot framework.

To differentiate the Alcazar from the Creta, the front fascia will get refined layout improvements but the split headlamp cluster and other styling bits could be carried above. As for the overall performance, the 1.5-litre petrol, the 1.5-litre diesel and the 1.4-litre turbo petrol located in the Creta could be retained. The 1.5-litre gasoline mill generates 115 PS and 144 Nm and the solo diesel can make 115 PS and 250 Nm in the Creta.

The scaled-down turbocharged petrol develops 140 PS and 242 Nm and the Hyundai Alcazar will additional likely have the functionality figures unaltered and it will be available in many transmission selections to have an expansive assortment. The inside will boast of features like a 10.25-inch touchscreen, BlueLink connectivity, panoramic sunroof, wi-fi charging, electronic instrument cluster, driven driver seat, and many others.
