Hyundai Alcazar Detailed In 25 Pictures
Explore the all-new three-row SUV’s design and features inside and out
The Hyundai Alcazar has finally arrived, launched at Rs 16.30 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). It is the brand’s entry into the three-row mid-size SUV segment that has been gaining popularity over the last few years. Here’s a look at the exterior and interior of the latest Hyundai SUV in pictures:
While the Alcazar is based on the Creta, Hyundai has made an effort to give them enough styling differences to be easily distinguishable. While they have the same split design for the LED headlamps and LED DRLs, the Alcazar gets its own studded grille which extends into the headlamps.
The front bumper styling has been tweaked as well, with different styling for the front faux skid plate and two-piece LED fog lamps.
The Alcazar also gets its own wheel design for the 18-inch dual-tone alloys, which are a size larger than the Creta’s.
From the side, the Alcazar does look like a longer Creta with the same well-defined shoulder line that extends from the front end till the tail lamp. In order to make space for the third row of seats, Hyundai has stretched the Alcazar by 150mm between the wheels and the Creta’s sloping roofline is replaced by a taller one to open up headroom in the rear. All pillars are blacked out for a floating-roof design and there is a new glass panel for the third-row passengers.
It also gets side steps integrated into the body cladding.
The rear-end styling of the Alcazar has nothing in common with the Creta. Its split wraparound tail lamps feature pixel-shaped elements, a similar design theme to the recently unveiled Staria MPV. The tail lights are connected by a strip of chrome that also features the lettering of the model name.
Most of the rear bumper design is integrated into the rear diffuser design which features a sporty-looking faux grille and houses the dual-tip exhausts.
Hyundai is offering the Alcazar with a dual-tone brown and black upholstery which adds to the premium feel of the cabin.
The dashboard layout of the Alcazar is identical to that of the Creta. The 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with the central AC vents above it and climate controls below it, is the star of the dash.
It gets a proper 10.25-inch digital driver’s display over the Creta’s gimmicky 7.0-inch multi-information display.
There is a rotary dial next to the drive selector in the automatic variants to toggle between the Alacazar’s drive and traction control modes. The drive modes are Comfort, Eco and Sport, and the traction modes are Snow, Sand and Mud. Do note that the Alcazar is a front-wheel-drive car only.
The controls for the electronic parking brake (with auto hold) and the blind-view monitor (assists the driver in changing lanes by providing a live view of the blind spots on either side) are also located on the central tunnel.
In the central console, just under the climate controls, you’ll find some storage space with USB ports and a wireless charging pad.
The Alcazar is available in six- and seven-seater configurations, depending on the variant. In the seven-seater layout, the middle seat split folds 60:40, with a foldable arm rest. The middle seat in this bench isn’t the most practical as it doesn’t get a central headrest or a three-point seatbelt.
Access to the third row is made easier by the one-touch tip-and-tumble seats in the middle row.
In the six-seater layout, the Alcazar is fitted with captain seats in the middle row and there’s a fixed central console between them which acts as an armrest.
That central console also has cupholders, storage areas and another wireless charging pad.
The third-row seats split fold 50:50. These seats also get their dedicated AC vents, cupholders and USB charging ports for added convenience. The blower control for their AC is on the right side.
In the Alcazar, the second and third rows can be folded down to increase luggage capacity when the seats are not needed for passengers. The six-seater layout allows for more versatile storage options to still be able to use one or more of the rear seats.
One of the clever features on the Alcazar is the fold out table, one fitted behind each front row seat, which also has a retractable cupholder. It’s smaller than what you’d find on an economy flight but it’s got a special groove that can help you place your tablet or large smartphone on top of it.
The front seats get sliding sun visors, a feature that really should be a standard fitment on any car costing over Rs 15 lakh. There are factory-fitted sunshades for the middle-row occupants too.
As a premium Hyundai offering, the Alcazar gets ventilated front seats and the driver’s seat is electronically-adjustable (8-ways).
The panoramic sunroof helps make the Alcazar’s cabin feel roomier and adds to the car’s premium experience. It can even be opened via voice command.
The Alcazar is equipped with a built-in air purifier, like the Creta, with a display integrated into the front row’s central armrest that shows the cabin’s AQI levels for the benefit of those sitting in the middle row.
Hyundai has also equipped the larger, three-row SUV with a 360-degree surround view monitor system. That with the front and rear parking sensors should make it easier to manage the Alcazar’s proportions around town. Thanks to the cameras, it also has a blind-view monitor which transmits the feed from the left-side to the digital display which is handy while driving in heavy traffic or in tight spaces.
The Alcazar also gets an eight-speaker Bose sound system which is more premium than the one found in the Creta.
The Hyundai Alcazar is offered with a 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre engine, both with the choice of 6-speed manual and automatic engines. The petrol engine produces 156PS and 191Nm while the diesel’s output is rated at 115PS and 250Nm. The manual and automatic options vary depending on the variant and seating configurations.
