Hyundai just launched the Alcazar in the market. It is a bigger version of the Creta. Both the SUVs share the same underpinnings and even an engine. Here, we have the Creta and the Alcazar being compared on a video. The video has been uploaded by Aayush ssm on his YouTube channel.
The variant of the Alcazar that we see in the video is Prestige which is the most affordable variant of the Alcazar and the variant of the Creta is EX. It comes with a tri LED headlamps with LED Daytime Running Lamps and the grille is different. Hyundai is using a lot more chrome for the grille on the Alcazar and it is also larger. This gives a more premium appeal to the SUV.
While both the SUVs come with turn indicators mounted in the lower half of the bumper, it is the Alcazar that comes with LED fog lamps. Both the SUVs are using the same bonnet with the same design. So, the only big difference up-front is the grille.
At the side, the wheelbase of the Alcazar is much longer than Creta. The wheelbase of the Alcazar is 2,760 mm while the Creta’s wheelbase is 2,610 mm. So, the wheelbase of the Alcazar is 150 mm longer. Also, the wheelbase of the Alcazar is the longest in the segment. This should help in liberating a good amount of space in the cabin for the occupants. Also, the Alcazar runs on 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels whereas on the top-end variant higher variants you get 18-inch.
It is the rear where there are most of the differences. The Alcazar has a newly designed rear with larger horizontally placed LED tail lamps. The tailgate is also much flatter with Alcazar badging. There is a twin-exhaust mounted in the lower half of the bumper which you only get on Creta if you opt for the 1.4-litre turbo petrol engine.
The boot space of Creta is 433 litres which is much larger than 180-litres of Alcazar with all three rows up. However, you can fold down the third-row seats to increase the boot space. The spare tyre in Alcazar is placed in the underbody whereas in Creta the spare tyre is placed in the boot.
The interior of the Alcazar looks much more premium than the Creta. Alcazar also comes with rear sunshades. The interiors are finished in brown and black colour which does look premium. The Creta comes with a beige and black cabin theme.
