Hyundai is India’s second largest car manufacturer and they have a variety of models in their line up. One of their recent launches in the market was the Alcazar. It is a three row 7-seater SUV which is actually based on Creta which is a popular choice in its respective segment. Hyundai made some cosmetic and mechanical changes to Creta to create Alcazar. Alcazar competes with cars like MG Hector Plus and Tata Safari in the segment. All the variants of Alcazar come with decent list of features. Here we have a Hyundai Alcazar which is modified with 18 inch alloy wheels from a Hyundai Tucson.
The video has been uploaded by VIG AUTO ACCESSORIES on their YouTube channel. Video starts with vlogger showing what all modifications have been done to the SUV.
