Hyundai Alcazar has been unveiled in its production-ready guise before its launch in the Indian market. The company will launch the 3-row version of the Hyundai Creta SUV in the coming months.

The Hyundai Alcazar has a resemblance with the Creta SUV design but has a 150mm longer wheelbase and an extra row of seats. The Alcazar SUV has a 2760mm wheelbase and will feature a larger overhang to accommodate 3-row seating and extra boot space.

At the front, it has a diamond-studded grille and a slightly tweaked front bumper. The headlamps will have a split-style design with DRLs placed on top, while the main headlamps will be placed on the bumper. The model will also have lamps on either side at the bottom of the front bumpers with an air-dam and faux skid plate in the middle. The SUV will come with an added rear-quarter glass and a new alloy wheel design.

At the back, new wraparound taillights and a slightly up-right boot-lid will be present, along with rear scuff plates, faux dual-exhaust tips and a chrome bar placed on the centre of the boot lid, highlighting the ‘Alcazar’ moniker.

Talking about the interior features, the Alcazar will come with a fresh and airy cabin with the addition of a panoramic sunroof. The SUV will be available in a 6-seat configuration having captain seats in the middle row and a 7-seat configuration having a bench seat in the middle. The captain seat variants will also have a central armrest to provide additional storage space and cup holders. Air-con vents and speed control will be present for the third-row seats.

Additional interiors features that are likely to be offered by Hyundai are a fully digital instrument cluster, a 360-degree camera, wireless phone charger, automatic climate control and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system supporting Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with connected technology of Hyundai.
