Hyundai is all set to launch their 7-seater SUV named Alcazar. It will get unveiled on April 6th in Rajasthan. The new SUV has been spotted on test on the Indian roads. However, more recently, model pictures of the Alcazar were leaked online. The pictures depicted the exterior of the SUV in detail. The new SUV will share quite a few things with the Creta which is already a big hit in the Indian market. Here, folks at IAB have rendered the upcoming Alcazar in the official colours of the Creta.
There are 8 colours in which Creta is offered, the same colours are rendered for the Alcazar. The colours are Mulberry Red, Deep Forest, Polar White, Galaxy Blue, Typhoon Silver, Titan Grey and Lava Orange.
The Alcazar will get a slightly different front-end design. The side profile will come with a longer wheelbase and the rear of the SUV will be completely different from the Creta.
The front gets an entirely different grille with multiple chrome pieces that are spread across the grille. It gets the same C-shaped LED Daytime Running Lamps with LED headlamps. There is a new front bumper with a new faux skid plate. There are new fog lamps also. The front-end of the Alcazar does look more premium than the one found on the Creta.
There are some new dual-tone alloy wheels for the Alcazar. The Creta gets 17-inch alloy wheels, but we expect that the Alcazar will come with 18-inch alloy wheels. There is a strong shoulder line that starts just above the front wheel arch, then goes under the front door handle and goes above the rear door handle and finally reaching the rear wheel arch.
You get a shark-fin antenna and roof rails. There is also a longer rear overhang that helps in accommodating the third-row of seats. Hyundai is also offering a side step that should help easy ingress and egress. The third quarter window is also much larger so that the third-row occupants do not feel claustrophobic.
It is the rear where the changes are substantial. There is an entirely new tailgate design that is more upright. There are completely new LED tail lamps while the rear fog lamps are placed in the lower half of the bumper. Their tail lamps are connected via a chrome strip on which ‘Alcazar’ is spelt out. There is a faux skid plate, twin exhaust pipes, rear wiper, rear washer, rear parking camera and a high mounted stop lamp.
The interior gets the same layout as the Creta so the air conditioning vents are positioned vertically, the 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system is placed horizontally and the four-spoke steering wheel is also the same as the Creta. The sketches that were revealed by Hyundai showcased the interior in black and dark brown. So, the dashboard and the upholstery got a dual-tone theme in this colour scheme.
Powering the Alcazar will be the 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine. The turbo petrol engine will produce 140 PS of max power and a peak torque output of 242 Nm. The diesel engine will produce 115 PS of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque. There are also rumours that the Alcazar will also get the 2.0-litre petrol engine from the Tucson and the Elantra. The engine produces 150 PS of max power and 192 Nm.
