Hyundai Alcazar Name Confirmed For Upcoming 7-Seater SUV: Global Debut Soon

Hyundai has revealed the name of its upcoming seven-seater SUV, the Alcazar. The new Hyundai Alcazar SUV will be the brand's newest offering, positioned above the popular Creta in the product lineup.

The company has released a video to announce the name of its all-new seven-seater SUV, which is said to be based on the Creta. Hyundai has also stated that the global debut of the SUV is scheduled to take place soon, although a specific date is yet to be revealed.

As mentioned earlier, the new seven-seater Hyundai Alcazar SUV will be based on the new Creta offering. It will carry forward a similar design and styling, while also borrowing a number of components from the five-seater SUV.

Having said that, Hyundai will introduce a number of revisions and changes, to help differentiate between the two models. This could include a revised set of headlamps, front grille, new alloy wheels and more. The majority of the design updates is expected to be at the rear, with the new Alcazar expected to feature a more upright tailgate with a revised set of taillights and rear bumper.

Inside, the most obvious change will be the inclusion of the third row of seating. While Hyundai has announced that the Alcazar will be a 7-seater, it is yet to be seen if the top-spec variants come with a six-seater option as well; considering most of its competitors have it.

Apart from the seven-seater configuration, Hyundai is also expected to offer a number of additional features on the Alcazar as well. This includes a large touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, wireless charging, electrically-adjustable driver seat, rear AC vents, a panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, multiple charging ports at the rear and many more.

S S Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd., said,

"The year 2021 will add a new chapter in HMIL history, as we gear up to enter and redefine a new segment. Hyundai Alcazar will supersede the aspirations of new-age buyers and redefine existing benchmarks to ensure customer delight."

"As Hyundai completes 25 years in the country, we will re-emphasize our commitment to Indian customers with the Global Debut of Hyundai Alcazar that is 'Made in India' and 'Made First for India'."
