India’s first Hyundai Alcazar with 20 inch wheels: This it IT!

Hyundai launched their 7-seater SUV Alcazar in the market last year. Hyundai Alcazar is based on Hyundai Creta and it competes with cars like MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari and the Mahindra XUV700. Even the upcoming Kia Carens is one of the rivals to the Alcazar. The Alcazar has managed to make space for itself in the market and is doing pretty good. As there is no base variant for Alcazar, most of the customers who buy this SUV are satisfied with the features that the car is offered with. However, just like in any case there are exception here as well and we have started seeing modified or customised examples of Alcazar in the market. Here we have one such modified Alcazar that gets 20 inch alloy wheels.

The images have been shared by creativewheelz on their Instagram page. This is probably India’s first and only Hyundai Alcazar to get aftermarket 20 inch alloy wheels. It looks like the owner of this SUV did not make any other changes to the car except for the wheels and tyres. The standard 17 inch dual tone alloy wheels on the Alcazar has been replaced with an aftermarket 20 inch 10 spoke alloy wheels. 

The wheels completely change the overall stance of the car. It looks a lot more aggressive. The alloys and wrapped with low profile tyres. Although the wheels and the tyres looks pretty on the car, we cannot say that the ride quality of the car would have improved. The modification would have only ruined the ride quality of the Alcazar and there are high chances that the handling would have also gone bad.

The large alloy wheels and low profile tyres definitely look good but, they do not provide good ride quality specially in an SUV like Alcazar where occupants comfort is of utmost importance. Coming back to the features, the Alcazar comes with tri-beam LED headlamps. There are split boomerang shaped LED DRLs. The front grille on the Alcazar is different from what we have seen on Creta. It looks a lot more matured on Alcazar. the fog lamps and the turn indicators are placed on the lower part of the bumper as usual.

The car gets a different looking LED tail lamps in Alcazar when compared it with Creta. The Alcazar as mentioned above, comes with decent number of features even in the s0-called base variant.
