Hyundai has officially revealed the much-anticipated Alcazar, which is the 7-seater version of the Creta SUV. As per the details available, the brand would be launching Alcazar in Nepal next month. The Hyundai Alcazar is expected to remain very much identical to the Creta, however, it will come with its characteristics. It is said that the Alcazar will be offered either as a 6-seater with captain seats for the middle row or a 7-seater with bench seats. Here's all that you can expect from the new 2021 Hyundai Alcazar SUV.
While the official details are yet to be revealed, we expect the all-new Hyundai Alcazar to be available with two engine options: a 2.0L petrol engine (from Elantra) and a 1.5L diesel engine (from Creta). The petrol engine produces a maximum power of 159HP and a peak torque of 192Nm, while the diesel engine produces 115HP and 250Nm. Both the engine options will be available with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a 6-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai Alcazar measures 4,330mm in length, 1,790mm in width, while the fuel tank capacity stands at 50 litres.
While Hyundai has not yet revealed the complete feature list, the Alcazar is said to borrow the Creta’s 10.25-inch infotainment system, Apple Carplay and Android Auto, a digital driver’s display, connected car tech, climate control, ventilated seats, a wireless phone charger, powered driver’s seat, and a sunroof. It's also likely to get a redesigned tail section with new LED taillamps, a revised tailgate and more. We do also expect to see a new grille, along with tweaked headlamps and bumper. Safety should be handled by six airbags, ABS with EBD, tyre pressure monitor, and reverse parking sensors.
Hyundai Motor is likely to launch the new Alcazar in Nepal by mid-2021 and it will be priced somewhere between NRs. 60 lakhs to NRs. 80 lakhs. Upon launch, it will compete in the Nepalese market with the likes of MG Hector Plus and Tata Safari, along with the upcoming new-gen Mahindra XUV500. The company also said that the Hyundai Alcazar has been tested over varying terrains such as rough roads, fast-paced highways and hilly terrain which is perfectly suitable for Nepalese roads. Hence, the new Alcazar receives significant design changes to keep things fresh in the market.
