Bookings for Hyundai’s six- and seven-seat SUV, the Alcazar are now open! For a sum of Rs 25,000, you can book the Alcazar online or at the nearest Hyundai dealership. After our recent camouflaged drive of the Alcazar, this is the first time Hyundai has officially given us the taste of the Alcazar’s interiors.

Inside, the story of the third row and the luggage space in hand is quite the highlight. The six-seater version has captain seats in the middle row, while the seven-seater version has a flat bench, which can be easily tumbled down with a one-touch feature for passengers to access the third row. The second row also has the sliding function to create just that extra amount of space. Speaking of space, with all the seats up, the Alcazar boasts 180 litres of boot space, which is far better in comparison to its rivals. As far as features are concerned, the Alcazar gets a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, 8-speaker Bose sound system, front row seatback table, device holder and a lot more.

On the performance front, the Alcazar will be available in both petrol and diesel engine options. This one gets the 2.0-litre petrol engine as seen on the Elantra and Tucson albeit in a different state of tune. It produces 157 bhp and 19.5 kgm of torque, whereas the old 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 113 bhp and 25.5 kgm of torque. Both the engines will be available in either a 6-speed auto or a 6-speed manual gearbox. It’s the 2.0-litre petrol unit paired to a 6-speed manual ‘box that delivers more performance than the rest, with a 0-100 kph sprint time in less than 10 seconds, while the diesel mill is tuned for better fuel efficiency. Do stay tuned for more updates on the Hyundai Alcazar!
