Hyundai finally brought in the Alcazar at a starting price of Rs 16.30 lakh, ex-showroom and needless to say, we believe it will be the ultimate 7-seat SUV. To bring justice to our statement, we have the top 5 points that stand out in the 2021 Hyundai Alcazar! Let's have a look here -
Panoramic Sunroof Right From The Base Variant
Believe it or not, a sunroof has now become a premium feature rather than a necessity in the Indian market. Even though the climatic conditions don't allow the usage of a sunroof but still we Indians want it. And Hyundai understands it really well and even the base Prestige variant of the Alcazar is equipped with a huge panoramic sunroof. This feature holds an edge over its other rivals.
Powerful and Refined 2.0L Petrol
Hyundai Alcazar is the only 6/7-seat SUV that has the most powerful petrol unit. The 2.0-litre, BS6 compliant four-cylinder naturally-aspirated unit pumps out 157 bhp with a peak torque of 192 Nm. A 6-speed manual is observed as standard fitment while 6-speed AT comes as an option.
Longest Wheelbase and Largest Boot space
At 2760 mm, Alcazar's wheelbase is the longest when compared with rivals MG Hector Plus (2750 mm) and Tata Safari (2741 mm). Similarly, boot space has to be enough for a 6/7-seat SUV and Alcazars 180 litres cargo is the biggest in the segment. Its rival MG Hector Plus carries 60 litres while the boot space for the Safari sticks to 50 litres only.
Best In-class Fuel Economy
Hyundai Alcazar is available in two engine options - a 1.5L diesel and a 2.0L petrol. The table below provides you with the mileage figures for both the engines -
|Powertrain Option||ARAI-claimed Mileage|
|2.0-litre Petrol with 6-speed MT||14.5 kmpl|
|2.0-litre Petrol with 6-speed AT||14.2 kmpl|
|2.0-litre Diesel with 6-speed MT||20.4 kmpl|
|2.0-litre Diesel with 6-speed AT||18.1 kmpl|
Value For Money Base Variant
None of these SUVs has a value for money base variant but Alcazar here provides everything one needs right from the lowermost variant. The Prestige is equipped with a shark fin antenna, panoramic sunroof, tri-beam headlight design with LED DRLs and LED taillights, 17-inch alloy wheels, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, ambient lighting, voice command, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, air purifier, EP brake, wireless charger and among others.
Safety features include dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, tyre pressure monitoring system, rear disc brakes, vehicle stability management, hill assist, rear parking camera, reverse parking camera with guidance, ISOFIX mount child seats and among others.
