Hyundai has released a video of the Alcazar showing how it can take on the different terrains. In the video, we can spot a few production form highlights too.
Apart from design elements, the Alcazar also shares quite a few of its body panels with the Creta, like the front fenders, bonnet and even all four doors. The Alcazar car gets a longer rear overhang, a prominent quarter glass aft of the rear door and a new-look D-pillar with a slightly upright rear. At the back, the styling is completely new and the Alcazar gets horizontally positioned, wraparound tail-lamps that extend on the tailgate, unlike the ones on the Creta. The rear bumper will also have provisions for dual, faux exhaust tips and a faux brushed aluminium skid plate.
While the details of the features inside are not known, the Alcazar will get a long list of features too as all the other Hyundai products.
While the Alcazar does share quite a few mechanical and cosmetic bits with the Creta sold in India, it will not share the Creta’s petrol engine options (1.5-litre NA – 115hp and 1.4-litre turbo – 140hp) but will come with a more powerful 152hp 2.0-litre engine that sees duty on the Elantra sedan and the Tucson SUV in India. This engine will come mated with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque convertor automatic gearbox. The same 2.0-litre petrol is also expected to power the Creta in some international markets.
The exact details we will get to know in coming days. The all-new Hyundai Creta has become a popular choice in the market. The seven-seater Alcazar is likely to push the sales of Hyundai even more.
