Hyundai Alcazar will be launching on June 18th. Recently, the manufacturer revealed more details about the SUV. It will be going against the MG Hector Plus and the Tata Safari. Now, the brochure of the Alcazar has been leaked ahead of the launch. The brochure lists down more features that the SUV would be offering.
The Alcazar will be offered in 6 variants, namely Prestige, Prestige(O), Platinum, Platinum(O), Signature and Signature(O). The Prestige(O), Platinum(O) and Signature(O) will be offered with an automatic transmission. There would be six single tone colours to choose from and two dual-tone colours. There will be Taiga Brown, Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Starry Night and Titan Grey. For dual-tone colours, there will be Polar White with Phantom Black and Titanium Silver with Phantom Black.
The Alcazar has a wheelbase of 2,760 mm which is the longest in its segment. This should help in increasing the cabin space for the occupants and also helping in adding the third-row of seats. The second and third-row occupants will have more legroom and would be able to sit more comfortably. When compared, the Hyundai Creta’s wheelbase measures 2,610 mm.
There are two engine options offered with the Alcazar. The 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 159 PS of max power and 192 Nm of peak torque. The 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 115 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 250 Nm. Both the engine options will be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. The engine would also come with three different drive modes and three different traction controls. The drive modes are Comfort, Eco and Sport whereas the traction modes are Snow, Sand and Mud.
The brochure also reveals the ARAI fuel efficiency of the engines with the transmissions. The petrol engine with a manual gearbox would return 14.5 kmpl whereas the automatic transmission would return 14.2 kmpl. The diesel engine on the other hand would return 20.4 kmpl when mated to a manual gearbox whereas with automatic transmission would return 18.1 kmpl.
The Alcazar would come with a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster which is different from the one found on the Creta. It would also come with a Blind View Monitor that projects a feed from the camera that shows what’s behind into the digital instrument cluster. It would also come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system that will come with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, voice commands and Blue Link connected car technology. The in-built maps in the infotainment system would be able to get OTA updates from Hyundai directly.
Hyundai will also offer a voice-enabled panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, Bose sound system, electric adjustment for the driver seat, air purifier with AQI display, 64 colours for ambient lighting, puddle lamps, 360-degree parking camera and much more. It would also come with Hyundai SmartSense that offers lane departure warning, forward collision warning, blind-spot avoidance, cross-traffic alert, driver attention warning system and automatic emergency braking.
The 6-seater version would have captain seats and would get a dedicated armrest with two cupholders and a wireless charger. The second-row seats would have a tumble feature which would provide easier access to the third-row seats. The second-row occupants would get front-row seatback tables and sunshades too.
