Hyundai has launched the Alcazar SUV in India at Rs 16.30 lakh (ex-showroom) for the 7-seater Prestige variant. The Alcazar enters the Indian six and seven-seater SUV market, going against the likes of MG Hector Plus and Tata Safari. Since the car is based on its younger sibling Creta with a host of differences, here are some of the differences which you can consider before taking a final call.
SeatsAlcazar is available in a 7-seater and 6-seater option. The 7-seater option comes with a bench seat for the middle row. The customer will also be given a choice to go for two captain chairs for the middle-row. The captain chairs will have a dedicated centre console with an armrest and two cup holders. Creta comes only in a 5-seater model.Hyundai Alcazar. (Photo: Hyundai)
Hyundai Alacazar Design
Talking about the design the first thing that we can observe is a tail lamp design. If you will notice the rear tail lamp design of Creta it is a C-shaped LED running light while the Alcazar’s lights are bigger and also have a different layout for the running light. The LED strip is placed in the lower surround of the tail lamp.
Coming to the front designs, the all-new Alcazar has a similar basic design to that of Creta but what makes it different is its cascading grille. Also, inside the grille, you can observe many individual chrome pieces and even get a chrome surround whose sides integrate with the headlamps like the Creta.
Hyundai Creta Design
The 2020 Hyundai Creta comes with a brand new design on the outside that falls in line with the same language that began with the Venue. It comes with three-part LED headlamps, squared wheel arches, a new grille, different alloy wheels, and a brand new cabin.
Hyundai Alcazar DimensionsAs the Alcazar is equipped with the C-pillar it will be longer than the Creta. The longer size will enable the car to get a larger rear overhang which can accommodate the third-row of seats.

The powertrain options are likely to be carried over from the Creta which include – a 138bhp/242Nm 1.4-litre T-GDi petrol unit with a seven-speed DCT unit, a 113bhp/250Nm 1.5-litre diesel motor with six-speed manual and a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission, and a 113bhp/144Nm torque 15-litre NA petro engine with a six-speed manual and CVT gearbox.
