Hyundai Alcazar Pros
- A 3-row family car that’s well-built inside out
- User-friendly interiors look really good (brown shade is awesome) and have quality parts
- 2.0L NA petrol & 6-speed AT deliver a very smooth and refined driving experience
- Economical 1.5L diesel is available in MT & AT variants. Offers good driveability
- Comfortable ride quality with neutral road manners
- Unladen ground clearance of 200 mm is perfect for Indian roads
- The Alcazar’s safety package includes 6 airbags, ESP, all-wheel disc brakes, auto-hold, TPMS etc.
- Impressive kit (fully digital instruments, 360-degree camera, 2nd-row wireless charger, panoramic sunroof, paddle shifters, Bose sound system, cooled seats & loads more)
- Hyundai’s competent after-sales service & wide dealer network
Hyundai Alcazar Cons
- Oddball love-it-or-hate-it face. We find the Alcazar’s front design to be weird & overdone
- 2nd-row legroom is mediocre (captain seat variant). Compromises have been made to accommodate the 3rd-row & boot
- 3rd-row seat is best suited to kids only. Not really a place for adults
- Rs. ~3 lakh OTR premium over the Creta on the higher variants is too much!
- Nothing for enthusiasts here. The 2.0 AT is tuned very conservatively
- Diesel’s 113 BHP & 250 Nm – although adequate – are the lowest in the segment
- The Creta 1.4L DCT is a lot, lot more fun to drive
- Competitors like the Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus & XUV500 offer way more spacious cabins
- Some misses (no auto wipers, illuminated window buttons, full-size spare tyre on top trims etc.)
