          Not Sure, Which car to buy?

          Let us help you find the dream car

          Pros and Cons

          • Pros
          • Cons

            Hyundai Alcazar

            • A 6/7-seater with city-friendly proportions. Feels just as easy as the Creta to drive in everyday conditions
            • Feature-loaded: 10.25-inch touchscreen, ventilated front seats, digital instrument cluster, BOSE music system, a panoramic sunroof, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlamps, and a lot more!
            • Standard safety features: TPMS, ESC, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX, dual front airbags, all-wheel disc brakes and rear camera. Higher variants get 6 airbags, a 360-degree camera, and blind view cameras
            • Captain seat option will be appreciated by chauffeur-driven owners
            • Usable boot space even when fully-loaded

            Mahindra Thar

            • Attention grabbing design. Looks macho and has stronger road presence than ever before.
            • Available with petrol and diesel engines with a choice of 6-speed manual or automatic transmissions for both.
            • Design better suited for off-roading than before. Big improvements in departure angle, breakover angle and ground clearance.
            • More tech: Brake based differential locking system, auto locking rear mechanical differential, shift-on-the-fly 4x4 with low range, 7-inch touchscreen with off-road gauges, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay & navigation
            • Good quality interior with better practicality than before. The Thar is now more family friendly.
            • Improved noise vibration and harshness management. Doesn’t feel crude or outdated to drive anymore.
            • More configurations: Fixed soft top, fixed hardtop or convertible soft top, available as a 6- or 4- seater

            Hyundai Alcazar

            • Third-row seat is usable but not ideal for adults. Best suited for kids or adults over short journeys
            • Doesn’t have the same road presence as price rivals like the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus, and XUV500

            Mahindra Thar

            • Stiff ride quality. Deals with bad roads well but sharp bumps can unsettle the cabin quite easily
            • Old school ladder frame SUV and behaves like one. Loads of body roll even on mild curves
            • Some cabin flaws: Rear windows aren’t openable, pedal box leaves no proper space to rest your left foot even in the automatic & thick B pillars create large blind spots to the side
            • It’s a heavily improved/polished version of a hardcore off-roader but not an alternative to more practical, comfortable, feature rich compact/sub compact SUVs
