2021 Hyundai Alcazar engine details
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 2021 Alcazar will also come with a sliding second row with the six-seater version getting a console armrest. The seats themselves have been optimised for more support while the wheelbase has grown by 150mm over the Creta. Hyundai also claims significant improvement in NVH levels with more sound deadening in the body structure and changes made to the driveshaft and suspension components. The Alcazar has also been fitted with hydraulic rebound stoppers in front struts to improve ride quality. The new SUV should also come with more features over the Creta like a 360-degree camera and more amenities for second-row passengers.
