The speculations of a 7-seater from Hyundai had been doing regular rounds. However, the brand confirmed the 7-seater with the ‘Alcazar’ nameplate last month. The upcoming 7-seater will be a premium product ready to take on other cars in its segment like the Tata Safari and the MG Hector Plus. In this article, we will discuss the Hyundai Alcazar and what we expect of it.
The Hyundai Alcazar is expected to get the same 1.5-litre diesel and petrol engines along with the 1.4-litre Turbo-petrol engine that we get to see on its younger sibling, the Hyundai Creta. However, the engine is expected to be re-tuned to buff up the power figures to compensate for the extra seated passengers.
The upcoming Hyundai Alcazar is expected to be offered as a 6-seater along with the 7-seat layout. Also, captain seats might be offered with the 6-seater. The 3rd-row seats are expected to get separate AC vents and charging ports for the passengers seated in the last row.
Hyundai Alcazar features
The Alcazar is expected to come with multiple premium features. A big touchscreen, panoramic sunroof, electronic tailgate, BOSE music system, 360-degree parking camera, wireless charging and ambient lighting with available customizations are expected to be on offer.
Moreover, the 2nd-row is also expected to be loaded with conveniences like reading lamps and recline adjust with distance adjustable seats.
The Hyundai Alcazar is expected to get 18-inch wheels as the car will be bigger than the Creta, so to compensate for that, bigger wheels have to be offered. With the bigger wheels onboard, the Alcazar will be able to gain better traction and control on the road, along with enhanced comfort for the passengers.
The Alcazar will be based on the same K2 platform, which underpins the current-gen Creta. The overhang of the car will however be increased to compensate for the extra seating capacity. The Alcazar is expected to be very similar in term of dimensions, compared to its other rivals.
With all the extra seats and power onboard, the Alcazar is sure going to be better than the Hyundai Creta. Moreover, the extra set of features will also boost the demand for the Alcazar.
