The name ‘Alcazar’ refers to a type of Moorish castle or palace from medieval times. Moreover, the unique camouflage theme of the castle depicts castles and palaces, while at the same time creating a recognizable image of an SUV. The carmaker says the upcoming Alcazar SUV has been extensively tested on a variety of terrains such as rough roads, fast highways, hilly terrain, and even in challenging weather conditions.
It was last month when Hyundai released new SUV design sketches suggesting that the rear and rear quarters will be much different from the one on Crete. Basically, it is a three-row version of the Crete, which will be offered in 6- and 7-seat configurations. In addition, the length and wheelbase of the SUV is likely to increase by 30 mm and 20 mm respectively for third-row accommodations. In terms of features, it will come equipped with a touch-sensitive infotainment system with BlueLink-linked automotive technology, ventilated seats, a flat-bottomed steering wheel, a 360-degree camera and a panoramic sunroof.

The all-new Hyundai Alcazar is expected to borrow mechanics from its younger brother or sister – Crete. The five-seater SUV is currently offered with a 1.5-liter gasoline, 1.5-liter diesel and a 1.4-liter GDI turbocharged gasoline engine. Transfer options are also expected to remain unchanged. Once introduced, the Hyundai Alcazar top-of-the-line seven-seater SUV will rival the MG Hector Plus and Tata Safari models.
