The soon-to-be-launched Hyundai Alcazar SUV sits on a longer wheelbase with is exactly 150mm longer than the Creat that it is based on. The reason behind that is the addition of a third-row seat. The Alcazar will come with the option for both 6- and 7-seater configuration just like its rivals Mg Hector Plus and the new Tata Safari. The Alcazar will feature a more premium and modern interior than the Creta and we hope the facelifted Creta will later on get the same interior features. The Alcazar gets a dual-tone Cognac-brown and black interior and it looks premium. Some of the interior features on the Hyundai Alcazar are- a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, 10.25-inch touchscreen with BlueLink Hyundai connected-car tech, first in class 8-speaker Bose premium sound system, voice-controlled panoramic sunroof, 8-way electronically adjustable driver seat, one-touch folding and tumble 2nd and 3rd-row seats, front row seatback table with retractable cup holder and smartphone holder, front sliding sunvisor, first in class rear window sunshade, 64 colours ambient lighting, Air purifier with AQI display and more.
