Hyundai launched their seven seater SUV Alcazar in the market recently. The SUV is based on Hyundai Creta and it competes with cars like Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus in the segment. Hyundai Alcazar is the most feature rich SUV in the segment and just like its 5-seater sibling, Alcazar also became popular among buyers in a short span of time. Ever since its launch we have seen several videos of Hyundai Alcazar online. Here we have one such video where a vlogger tries to find out how fast Hyundai Alcazar’s diesel version actually is.
The video has been uploaded by HEAT 17 on their YouTube channel. In this video, vloggers test 0-100 kmph timing of the all-new Hyundai Alcazar. For this test, he chooses an empty stretch of road. The road seems wet as it was raining. Vlogger gets in the vehicle and prepares for the launch. The Alcazar seen in the video is a top-end Signature trim Alcazar with a diesel engine. It is powered by a 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel engine that generates 115 Ps and 250 Nm of peak torque.
Vlogger then launches the car from the start line. Hyundai Alcazar moves off the start line and speed starts increasing. Vlogger had opted for a straight road with no traffic so that he can touch 100 kmph without any interruptions. Hyundai Alcazar smoothly accelerates and touches the 100 kmph mark in 13.44 seconds. This is not the best 0-100 kmph timing but, it is good for a 7-seater SUV in its segment.
With a longer wheelbase and added third row seat, Hyundai Alcazar is heavier than a regular Creta. If Hyundai had offered a bigger engine or the same engine in a different state of tune, then it would have hit the 0-100 kmph mark even quicker. The diesel engine is normally opted for its torquey and fuel efficient nature. The 1.5 litre diesel engine in Alcazar does that job pretty well.
If you are looking for performance then the petrol version might fulfill your needs. Petrol version of Hyundai Alcazar is powered by a 2.0 litre naturally aspirated engine that generates 159 Ps and 191 Nm of peak torque. Both these engine options are available with manual and automatic transmission options. The automatic versions also get paddle shifters with them.
Hyundai has made some changes to the exterior of the Alcazar. It now gets a much more matured and premium looking front grille and the headlamps and split LED DRLs looks better on Alcazar than in Creta. The SUV gets machine cut alloy wheels, all LED tail lamps and many other features.
On the inside, Hyundai Alcazar is available in 6 and 7 seater configurations. the 6-seater version gets a center console in the second row which offers cup holders, arm rest and wireless charging for phones. Other features include large panoramic sunroof, ventilated front row seats with electrical adjustments, multi-function steering wheel, tan colour leather upholstery, dual tone dashboard, automatic climate control, fully digital instrument cluster, blindspot detection system, 360 degree camera, reverse parking sensors and camera, cruise control and so on.
