    Hyundai Alcazar Drive Impression

    We took a test drive of the new Hyundai Alcazar in its petrol-manual powertrain option. 

    The Alcazar’s petrol engine has the capability to generate 159PS of maximum power and 191Nm of peak torque. 

    We feel that this engine’s highlight is its refinement and linear power delivery. This engine is smooth and not much noisy, while it doesn’t feel dead even in low revs. Hence, this engine makes the Alcazar an easy to drive car. We didn’t get the opportunity to take this car for a long spin, but during our brief run whatever road inconsistencies were faced, the car handled them comfortably. 

    What Are The Engine Specifications of Hyundai Alcazar? 

    The Alcazar’s 2.0-litre normal petrol engine is good to produce 159PS of maximum power and 191Nm of peak torque. 

    Compared to its petrol-powered rivals, the Alcazar’s engine is less powerful only than the Crysta’s engine. However, except for the Creta 1.5, all the other cars offer a better peak torque output than the Alcazar. 

    The Alcazar gets equipped with a 6-speed manual and 6-speed torque converter type automatic transmission options.

    The following table offers you a look at all the petrol engine specification details of the Hyundai Alcazar along with comparison with its rivals:

    The Alcazar diesel version will get powered by the Creta’s 1.5-litre diesel engine, which can generate 115PS of maximum power and 250Nm of peak torque. 

    This diesel engine gets paired with a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter type automatic transmission options.

    This engine’s power and torque outputs are lesser than that of the Safari, Hector Plus, XUV500 and Innova Crysta diesel.

    What Are The Exterior Details of Hyundai Alcazar?

    We have spotted the upcoming Alcazar with and without camouflage, and we can certainly say that this car’s exterior design highlight is its rear design, which offers it with a unique visual appeal. 

    It comes with LED tail lamps, but the turn indicators consist of normal bulb type. 

    It is worth noting that the Alcazar gets endowed with dual exhaust tips, which lend it a sporty look. 

    Apart from these, the other notable exterior styling features include the chrome finished Alcazar lettering, rear defogger and wiper.

    The Alcazar comes with a wheelbase measuring 2760mm, which is comparable with the rest of the D1 segment SUVs. It has a well proportionate look and doesn’t appear unnecessarily stretched. More importantly, it doesn’t look like an MPV.

    It comes with 18-inch machined alloy wheels that have eye-catching design, and these properly fill out the car’s wheel arches. So, the car doesn’t look undertyred at all. 

    The Alcazar comes fitted with cameras under its ORVMs - which serve for 360 parking. Apart from this, its other notable features include chrome door handles and roof rails.

    The Alcazar’s front fascia is very similar to the Creta, and like the Creta it also comes with LED headlamps and fog lamps. 

    It is actually from the front angle that you will not realise how big this car actually is. Hence, we feel that the Alcazar’s design proportions will mostly be liked by all. 

    What Are The Dimensions of Hyundai Alcazar? 

    The Alcazar is based on the Creta, and we all know that the Creta is a C-segment SUV. 

    However, if we consider the Alcazar’s 2760mm wheelbase, then it is perfectly comparable with the D1-segment cars. The Alcazar’s wheelbase is longer than the Creta’s by 150mm, and it is also longer than the wheelbase measurements of the Safari, Hector Plus, XUV500 and Innova Crysta.

    With all the seats up, the Alcazar offers a 180-litre boot space, which is more than what the Hector Plus and XUV500 offer. However, the Innova Crysta’s boot space is better than the Alcazar.

    The Alcazar sports wheel size of upto 18-inches, similar to that of the Safari, Hector Plus and XUV500.

    What Are The Expected Prices of Hyundai Alcazar? 

    From our first impression of the upcoming new Hyundai Alcazar, we think that it will be priced in the range of around Rs 14 lakh to Rs 20 lakh. 

    We also think that there will not be much price difference between the corresponding variants of the Alcazar petrol and diesel engine options.
