Upcoming Hyundai Alcazar Interior Spied
Expected to hit showrooms by June this year, the 3-row midsize SUV will come in 6- and 7-seat versions.
The interior of the upcoming Hyundai Alcazar 3-row SUV has been spied, soon after the automaker revealed the model’s official title.
These images are that of the 6-seater variant, confirming that the Alcazar will come in both 6- and 7-seat layouts, despite Hyundai calling it only as a 7-seater SUV.
Two captain chairs featuring ISOFIX anchor points are present in the second row, with an armrest taking its place in-between the seats. The section which houses the armrest also has cup holders, some storage space and a wireless smartphone charging pad.
Although the whole armrest section is a neat feature, one drawback it brings with it is that occupants will not be able to freely move from the second to third row and vice versa.
The third row seats, seen in the Hyundai Alcazar interior spied images, seem to be wide enough to accommodate adults and also feature adjustable headrests like the seats in front of them. However, legroom is very limited, meaning the seats be best relegated to small adults.
While the Alcazar is undoubtedly longer than the 5-seat Creta, with all 3-rows up, cargo space might very well be tiny. But, it is best to wait for the final article before coming to conclusions. Other than these changes, the Hyundai Alcazar’s dashboard will be very similar to the Creta.
On the outside, the SUV will sport a different grille and front bumper, in comparison with the Creta, while new wheels and a completely restyled tail section will help it stand apart.
While the drivetrain options are likely to be carried over from the Creta, it is rumoured that the Alcazar will feature ADAS technology (SmartSense in Hyundai speak).
Expected to be launched in India by June this year, the car will command a premium over the Creta and rival the 2021 Tata Safari, MG Hector Plus and the upcoming new-generation Mahindra XUV500.
