Hyundai has officially named its upcoming Creta-based 7-seat SUV as the Alcazar, today, even as it continues to test the model on public roads.

To make its global debut soon, the midsize SUV, says Hyundai, is made in India, “Made First for India” and adds that the car will match the ambitions of tech savvy customers.

It is high time Hyundai officially revealed the vehicle’s nomenclature, for, we reported that the title Alcazar has been trademarked by Hyundai as early as June last year (read article here)

Spotted on test multiple times already, the Hyundai Alcazar is based on the Creta 5-seat SUV that continues to rake in solid numbers every month.

Although it is expected to share its wheelbase with the Creta, the Alcazar will be longer, due to the addition of a third row of seats.

However, the interior design is likely to mirror that of the Creta. Thus, it will feature a digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch touchscreen, connectivity tech, a panoramic sunroof, among several other features in top-spec trims.

On the outside though, the Hyundai Alcazar will feature a different radiator grille than that of the Creta, while the rear profile will be all-new, sporting a large tailgate and split LED tail lamps.

Expect the Hyundai Alcazar to command a premium of at least Rs. 1 lakh in comparison with the 5-seater SUV it is based on, when it gets launched in the market this year.
