Hyundai Alcazar User Reviews:

Looking for Hyundai Alcazar? Here are the reviews and ratings by Alcazar owners from across the country.

The Hyundai Alcazar is by any measure an extension of the Creta. It stems from the same platform, employs largely the same engines, but there are differences. With a wheelbase that’s been lengthened to accommodate a third row of seats in 6- or 7-seater configurations, its appeal extends to large families, ones with more than four members living together. That broadens the Alcazar’s requirements, makes it more versatile, but with pricing stretching upwards of Rs 16 lakh, Hyundai have also positioned it in a premium space. Sacrificing base variants and leading consumers towards the top end variants is a gamble. Can it pay off? Initial reports suggest it just might pull it off, with Hyundai having captured over 4,000 bookings within a week at the time of this report being filed. Can it win the bet? We tested it to find out

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.)

On the other hand Hyundai is also talking to the large families where three-rows of seats becomes imperative, since Indian families like to do everything together! So the first and second row can move forward or back, depending on the space requirement. Either ideology works, though I’d weigh in more towards the larger families part, since there is a demand coming in from that sort of consumer in this space.
