2021 Hyundai Alcazar interiors, features
Alongside this announcement, Hyundai has also released the first pictures of the Hyundai ALcazar's interiors. The dashboard is the same as the one in the Creta with the same flowing middle section and centrally placed 10.25-in touchscreen. Differentiating the Alcazar is the two-tone tan and grey colour scheme and the large fully-digital 10.25-inch instrument cluster. Other notable features on the Alcazar, not available on the Creta, is the 64-colour ambient lighting, a seatback table for the second row with retractable cup holders and device tray, side steps, sunshades for the rear windows, a one-touch tumble and fold function for the second row and a Hyundai logo projection for the puddle lamps.
Carried over from the Creta is an 8-speaker Bose audio system, air purifier, panoramic sunroof with voice operation, Blue Link connected tech and an 8-way powered driver's seat. The second row can be had as a captain's seat or a 60:40 split-bench while the added third-row can be folded flat fully.
2021 Hyundai Alcazar engine details, specifications
The big development here is that the Hyundai Alcazar will get a 2.0-litre naturally aspirated four-cylinder petrol engine, unlike the 1.5-litre N/A and 1.4-litre turbo engines in the Creta. This motor makes 169PS and 191 Nm. The diesel motor continues unchanged from the Creta, the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel putting out 115PS and 250 Nm. Both engines will come paired with either a six-speed manual or a six-speed torque-converter automatic. Hyundai India claims a 0 to 100 kmph time of under 10s for the petrol-manual Alcazar. There will be three drive modes too - Eco, City and Sport although the off-road modes from the Creta seem to have been given a miss.
The wheelbase of the Alcazar has been lengthened to 2,760mm. To strengthen the revised architecture the Alcazar now uses a higher 75.6 per cent of advanced and high-stength steel while the suspension has also been retuned to cope with the larger dimensions over the Creta.
