A teaser video of the much-awaited Hyundai Alcazar has been released ahead of its official global début. The car is seen covered in a castle-themed camouflage.

The name “Alcazar” could essentially mean “castle”, “fortress” or “palace”. This may be Hyundai’s way of promoting the Alcazar as a castle on wheels. Hyundai have commenced with durability tests on this seven-seater SUV and they claim that the vehicle has been tested on varying terrains and that it has surpassed challenging weather conditions to ensure this “fortress” is built to last. The Hyundai Alcazar is a stretched version of the Creta with seven seats. The manufacturers had earlier revealed the design sketches of this upcoming SUV which will be globally unveiled on 6 April.

A Hyundai Alcazar seven-seater test mule was spied recently in South Korea. It had revealed a few minor design differences between the revised five-seater Creta and the under-development, three-row version. From what we’ve seen, we notice that, apart from the Hyundai Alcazar seven-seater being visually longer, the car sports a different front grille design as compared to the standard Creta. The rear overhang has been exaggerated to accommodate the third row of seats. Going by the looks of it, the space for the third-row passengers might not be substantial but should be enough for kids. With an additional row of seats, the luggage space will be compromised and won’t be as generous as the 2020 Creta five-seater’s 433 litres.

The stretched side profile is further enhanced with silver side-skirts which should give the new Hyundai Alcazar a more rugged stance. Even the roofline looks slightly different from the existing Creta. The A-pillar is finished in black, and there’s a sporty silver accent running above the B- and C-pillars. To make the cabin feel airier, Hyundai have made the C-pillar slimmer and carved out space for a quarter-glass. The teaser video of the SUV gives us a glimpse of its bold C-pillar, LED headlights, and diamond-cut alloy wheels, among other styling elements.

The powertrain options are expected to be the same as seen on the 2020 Hyundai Creta available in India. This would include one diesel engine and a couple of petrol engine options. A 1.5-litre diesel and a 1.5-litre MPI petrol and 1.4-litre turbo-petrol options available with manual or automatic transmissions. Being an international model, the seven-seater Hyundai Alcazar also gets more features compared to the India-spec Hyundai Creta, including parking sensors, that can be seen on the front bumper.

The Hyundai Alcazar seven-seater will demand a slight premium over the five-seater Creta which is priced between Rs 10-17 lakh (ex-showroom). More details will emerge soon, so stay tuned.
