Living with the Hyundai Alcazar

Introduce

When Hyundai wanted béo break into the thriving three-row SUV segment, it had a recipe for success. Based on the platform of the new generation Creta, the Korean automaker launched the 3-row Alcazar in June last year. Taking all the positives of its five-seater brother, the Alcazar was introduced béo offer buyers a larger, upscale and utilitarian cabin. We drove the Alcazar extensively and you can read our driving impressions here.

In terms of pricing, the base version of the Alcazar is around Rs 1,500,000 béo Rs 2 lakh more expensive than the equivalent Creta variant and is in the same price bracket as the Tata Safari and Mahindra XUV700. A few weeks back, the keys béo the Alcazar were delivered béo someone curious béo see if it was just a long Creta or offered much more. And after a long time with Alcazar, here’s what we came up with.

Right front three quarters

How realistic is it?

dashboard

While the Alcazar may look less stately and stately than some of its recently launched rivals, we can tell you the SUV certainly isn’t short on space. Compared béo the Cretaceous inspiration, the Alcazar’s wheelbase has been extended by 150mm. And when you look at its closest rivals, the Alcazar has a wheelbase that’s 10mm taller than the XUV700 and Hector Plus and almost 20mm longer than the Tata Safari. Starting with the front seats, they’re large, incredibly comfortable, and the super-convenient electric adjustment just means long trips will be more relaxing and comfortable.

Second row seats

The increased wheelbase leads béo ample space for passengers in the middle row. The one we sampled is the six-seat version with the captain’s seat. With the slide and recline operation along with the fancy retractable trays on the front seats, the second row is sure béo have a high settlement whenever the family plans béo detour.

Third row seats

Getting in and out of the third row is easy thanks béo the one-touch power folding function. Having said that, while reaching the last row of seats can be relatively easy, the space is not large enough. Although Hyundai has tried béo convince occupants with fans, USB charging ports and cup holders, the lack of legroom and support under the thighs can make passengers uncomfortable.

Pockets behind the front seats

If you plan béo travel with all the seats, the Alcazar doesn’t have much luggage space and you can fit just a few duffel bags or small backpacks. However, with the 50:50 split third row seats that fold completely flat, the Alcazar can consume all your family’s luggage and all the gear you cửa hàng for on your weekend getaway. .

Open Boot / Trunk

What’s on the feature list?

Infotainment system

Hyundai has decorated all three rows of seats with modern and nurturing features. First-row passengers are decked out with cooled seats, wireless chargers and a large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

USB port / AUX / Power outlet / Wireless charging

Step into the second row and there’s a dedicated center console between the captain’s seats, once again equipped with a wireless charger for smartphones, armrests with stowage and storage space. .

The instrument cluster

Another notable addition is the all-digital instrument cluster that offers a lot of data and is well-lit, easy béo read and intuitive béo use. Other equipment on the Alcazar is 64-color ambient lighting, tire pressure monitoring system, six airbags, Bose sound system, air purifier and electronic parking brake with auto hold function. And of course, don’t we Indians love the giant panoramic sunroof in our SUVs?

Front row seats

How is the fuel efficiency?

Shot Engine

The Hyundai Alcazar we drove was powered by a 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine tuned béo make 113hp and 250Nm. The engine is mated béo a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The same engine is also available with a six-speed manual transmission.

Right view

According béo our test cycle, the Alcazar AT diesel engine hit 12.16 km/h in the city and 15.44 km/h on the highway. The other powertrain option available on the Alcazar is a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 157bhp and 191Nm of torque. This engine is mated béo a six-speed manual transmission and a six-speed torque converter automatic.

How does it work on your daily commute?

Front row seats

The 1.5-litre diesel engine powering the Alcazar is a factory-proven and one of the most economical in its class. As an oil-fired engine, the mid-range and peak-torque engine gives you all the power for city traffic and triple-digit highway speeds.

dashboard

And while there, Alcazar didn’t feel unusually big and huge. In fact, it surrounds you and the dashboard is set low for good visibility while moving in traffic. However, the steering wheel, although fine-tuned, feels a bit off-centre and not the best in the business. However, the driving quality on the Alcazar at full load feels smooth and never worrisome in the face of twists and turns and different road conditions.

Right front three quarters

Another very useful feature that comes in handy is the blind-spot monitor that uses a camera mounted under the ORVM béo show approaching vehicles. Plus, front and rear parking sensors work in tandem with the 360-degree camera béo help keep you from breaking a sweat when parking in the tightest of places. And if you choose béo work your way up, the raised driver’s position allows you béo have a good view around the edges.

How weekend?

Open Boot / Trunk

We have some pretty heavy packers on our team. And Alcazar is the right choice for all such outings. The massive trunk (after folding the third row of seats) can swallow the large and medium suitcases, several duffel bags and backpacks of all commuters. And oh, we said the Alcazar has eight cup holders, a cooled glovebox, bottle holders on all four doors, and lots of little places béo stash your gear.

Front row seats

A 50-liter fuel tank capacity means fewer gas station visits, and with easy cruise control and paddle shifters, highway trips will be smooth and cozy. We also like the Alcazar’s relatively car-like seating, but it might not be as good for buyers who want that commanding driving position as the Safari and XUV700 offer.

What is the agreement with the warranty?

Right front three quarters

Hyundai India offers a standard three-year/unlimited-kilometer warranty on the Alcazar. And béo make the proposition even more appealing, the automaker also has three-year roadside assistance and a BlueLink subscription service.

Inference

Three quarters front left

Let’s face it, the Hyundai Alcazar faces some serious challenges from its other league rivals with its larger footprint and decent third-row space. Still, the Alcazar is a viable option for those looking béo tăng cấp from a five-seat SUV that can carry the molecular family and their belongings in a well-equipped cabin that feels luxurious. , practical, full of modern features and easy béo live with.

Rear right three quarters

The Hyundai Alcazar is retailed exclusively through the brand’s Signature stores and can be had in a six- or seven-seat layout. There are three variants béo choose from with prices starting from Rs 16.34 lakh and going up béo Rs 20.15 lakh, (both prices, ex-factory). In the battle of family SUVs, the Hyundai Alcazar rivals the likes of Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and Mahindra XUV700.
