Let us begin with the Hyundai Alcazar interiors. Let us take for instance the ‘cognac beige’ color scheme, but there are many Hyundai Alcazar colors available. In this case, the dashboard’s top was colored somewhere between rust and burgundy, which is called by the name of Spirit by Hyundai. The initial impression hits the spot, and there is a luxe look added to the interior. Things feel well assembled together, the cabin is spacious and airy, along with the volume that is added feels evident.
The whole panoramic sunroof adds to the feel of airiness within the Alcazar. The list of equipment only receives more impressive from here on. There is an air purifier with a handy LCD screen on the center console. Along with that, there is a great wireless charger up front, with one in the second row also. A broad sunroof is on offer, and the glove box is chilled. It is the few little touches that combine the feeling of a truly well-appointed SUV.
When it comes to design, the Alcazar is, to our eyes, a solid looking and well-proportioned vehicle. The scales are considerably varied from that of the Creta, and it resides on its own in respect to design. The use of dark chrome segregates it from its competitors, and the dual tone ‘diamond-cut’ wheels are patent, but nice. The side and front profiles will feel usual to Creta viewers, but we are happy to note it does not seem like they just tacked on the third row.
In the past, we have seen that despite not making as much sound about it as its competitors, this company actually has a solid, infotainment system that is packed with features and a connected car suite. This takes forward with the latest Alcazar as well, with a massive 10.25-inch central screen, along with a 10.25-inch completely digital TFT instruments display in the driver’s place. Both are easy to read and high resolution and the touchscreen was responsive and fluid.
Hyundai Alcazar Review: The Best Car For This Market
Now that you are quite accustomed to its features and design, let us see finally why you should buy this car, or why you should not buy this car. This Hyundai Alcazar review would fall short if we do not talk about the pros and cons.
- This is a 3-row family car that is well constructed inside out
- Offers user-friendly interiors, has quality parts, and looks really good.
- 6-speed AT and 2.0L NA petrol delivers a very refined and smooth driving experience
- Economical 1.5L diesel is obtainable in AT and MT variants. Offers nice driveability
- Comfortable quality of ride with neutral road manners
- The safety package of Alcazar includes ESP, all-wheel disc brakes, 6 airbags, auto-hold, TPMS, and many more.
- The impressive kit includes digital instruments, 2nd-row wireless charger, 360-degree camera, panoramic sunroof, Bose sound system, paddle shifters, cooled seats & loads, and many more.
- The front design of Alcazar is overdone and weird.
- The legroom in the 2nd row is mediocre. These compromises have been made to adjust the 3rd row and the boot.
- This car has nothing to offer for the enthusiasts here. The 2.0 AT is tuned very cautiously
- Diesel’s 113 BHP & 250 Nm – even though adequate – are the lowest in the variant.
- The Creta 1.4L DCT on the other hand is a lot, lot more fun to drive.
- Competitors like the MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari, and XUV500 provide way more airy cabins
After this Hyundai Alcazar review, it can be concluded that it is a highly agreeable vehicle. As a purchaser, the user may not use the 3rd row too much, but the length that is added enables for more flexibility. This car picks the correct boxes to tick and leaves out some that the user might forgive. And in the end, the Hyundai Alcazar price in India is Rs 19.99, which according to us is a great deal taking into account its competitors. So the Hyundai Alcazar in India is a big hit.
