Hyundai reveals Alacazar sketches ahead of April 6 global premiere

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 23 Mar 2021


Hyundai Motor India today released design sketches of its soon-to-be-launched premium Alcazar seven-seater SUV. The Creta-based Hyundai is to be officially revealed on April 6.

The new Hyundai Alcazar will be powered by the same petrol and diesel engine options that are offered on the Creta SUV, thereby giving customers more choice than its direct rivals – the MG Hector Plus, the Mahindra XUV500 and the Tata Safari.

Sources have told Autocar India that the Hyundai Alcazar three-row SUV could come with ADAS technology, which is known as Hyundai SmartSense overseas. While specific details are scarce at present, expect the SUV to come with Hyundai SmartSense features like forward collision assist, which includes automatic emergency braking tech, blind spot collision avoidance assist, driver attention warning, automatic emergency braking while reversing, and rear cross-traffic alert. Additionally, features like smart cruise control, highway driving assist and lane departure warning can also be expected on the Hyundai Alcazar.

Hyundai, which has sold a total of 418,935 passenger vehicles including 190,651 UVs in the April 2020-February 2021 period, will be looking to give its domestic market sales a new charge with the Alcazar.
