Hyundai officially announced the name of its much-awaited, upcoming 7-seater SUV for the Indian market earlier this year. Named as the Alcazar, the upcoming seven-seater vehicle will be launched in the Indian market later this year. But before that, Hyundai will officially unveil the car next month.
According to the T-BHP report, Hyundai will officially unveil the Alcazar on 6th April. The unveiling will happen in Rajasthan. There is no more information on the development. Hyundai is yet to officially announce the unveiling and the late date of the Alcazar. However, the launch will happen in May of this year.
The Hyundai Alcazar is based on the same platform as the Creta. It will make its global debut in India and is likely to be exported from here too. The all-new Alcazar is the first car from the brand to be launched in 2021. Hyundai is testing the product on the Indian roads for a long time now and there are several spy shots that show the vehicle in various terrains across India. The Alcazar is significantly longer than the Creta in terms of size and it will translate into a bigger cabin space too.
It is a much-awaited vehicle and will take on the likes of Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and even the Mahindra XUV500. When it comes to styling, the 7-seater Alcazar will look very similar to the Creta but there will be major styling differences that will ensure that both vehicles have a unique identity. Nonetheless, the Alcazar will offer a list of premium features. Even though Hyundai is yet to make any comment on the upcoming Alcazar, the spy pictures show that it will offer a bigger infotainment system.
Petrol and diesel engine options
Even the engine details of the upcoming Alcazar remains unknown. However, it is likely to get powered by the same engine options that are also available with the all-new Creta. Starting with the 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine, the Alcazar will also get a 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel and the most powerful of all – the 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine. Hyundai will also offer a similar transmission option with the Alcazar so all the engine options will get automatic transmission options. With the Creta 1.4-litre turbocharged, Hyundai does not offer a manual transmission, however, since the Alcazar will have a different customer base, we may get to see a manual option too.
The price of the Alcazar is likely to be around Rs 1.5 lakh more expensive than the respective variants of the Creta. The Alcazar will offer all the features that the Creta offers and there will even more than that. The exact details we will get to know on 6th April. 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.
