Hyundai Motor India unveiled the first glimpse of its upcoming 6 and 7 seater premium SUV – Hyundai ALCAZAR.
Based on Hyundai’s Global Design identity of Sensuous Sportiness, Hyundai ALCAZAR characterizes a unique design theme that is extraordinary among the ordinary.
The new Hyundai 7-seater SUV is essentially the bigger and premium version of the Creta. It shares its platform and several design bits and components with its 5-seater sibling.
This 6 and 7 seater Premium SUV exemplifies rugged elegance while, interiors of Hyundai ALCAZAR feature a Wing-Surrounded architecture that personifies spaciousness, lavish comfort and modern in-car experiences.
Hyundai India stated that the new Alcazar is designed to resonate the grandeur and magnificence of royal lineage of palaces & castles.
Designed to redefine driving experiences with a combination of versatility and futuristic characteristics. It will offer customers an upscale experience be it for business travel or families travelling together to satiate their wander lust.
According to the automobile manufacturer, the Hyundai Alcazar has been tested on 15 drive tracks for various road driving conditions and manufactured using 89 per cent green energy at its production facility in Tamil Nadu. Also, the SUV has gone through the full course of durability testing conducted with GVW (gross vehicle weight) condition across hilly terrain, rural and highway roads in hot and dry conditions.
The Hyundai Alcazar gets a couple of engine options — third-generation Nu 2.0-litre petrol and U2 1.5-litre diesel. The petrol motor develops 159PS of maximum power and 191Nm of peak torque, while the diesel mill is good for 115PS of maximum power and 250Nm of peak torque. It’s the same motor that does duty in the Elantra sedan and Tucson SUV.
