Hyundai is gearing up for the launches of some new vehicles for the Indian market. They have already showcased the Alcazar with camouflage and there are also spy shots of the i20 N Line that has been spotted on our Indian roads. Both the vehicles were spotted on the Faridabad-Ballabgarh highway doing highway speeds. The Research and Development centre of Hyundai is located in Faridabad.
Both the vehicles were covered with camouflaged and were doing speeds in excess of 100 kmph. There is a chance that Hyundai was testing the vehicle for highway stability or the vehicles were going somewhere else. There have already been many spy shots of the Alcazar and the i20 N Line before this.
Hyundai i20 N Line
The i20 N Line that has been spotted various times had camouflage on the front bumper and the rear bumper but still, some details could be pointed out. It will come with a more aggressive front and rear bumper. There will also be side skirts for the N Line. It also runs on different alloy wheels that measure 17-inches and at the rear, there will be twin exhaust tips just like we have seen on the Creta Turbo. All of this will give a sportier stance to the i20 N Line.
We also know that the outside rearview mirrors will be finished in black while the roof will be finished in body colour. At the rear, we can see the Z-shaped LED tail lamps while the front headlamps will be LED projector units. Interestingly, in the international markets, the i20 is offered with a full LED headlamp.
It will be offered with the 1.0-litre turbocharged, direct-injection petrol engine that produces 120 PS of max power and 172 Nm of peak torque. Hyundai offers it with a 6-speed iMT gearbox or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. As of now, we do not know which gearbox will Hyundai offer. There can be other modifications as well like a stiffer suspension setup which make the hatchback handle better and sporty pedals.
The Alcazar is the elder sibling of the Creta. It has a longer wheelbase than the Creta which means it is also longer than the Creta. This helps in opening up more cabin space for the occupants. The interior of the Alcazar is coloured in black and dark brown instead of black and beige. This gives a more premium appeal and an up-market look to the cabin. At the exterior, there are some minor tweaks to the front fascia while the rear tailgate has been entirely redone. So, it is more upright and comes with a different set of LED tail lamps. The Alcazar will sit between the Creta and the Tucson.
It also gets a different petrol engine while the diesel engine will be the same as the Creta. It will be a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that we have seen on other Hyundai vehicles. It produces 152 PS and a peak torque of 192 Nm. The 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 115 PS of max power and 250 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines will be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox or a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
