Hyundai officially revealed the exterior and interior sketch designs of the Alcazar 7-seater SUV which is getting ready to make its debut in the Indian market. Now, the design renderings of the Hyundai Alcazar have emerged on the internet giving us a glimpse of what to expect in the near future.
From the leaked images, the front of the Alcazar though similar to the Hyundai Creta comes with distinguishing features such as a reworked grille design with a chrome studded finish, chrome elements that separate the top DRL from the headlamp cluster and mingle well with the grille bezel. The Creta features a body-coloured insert instead of the chrome. The front bumpers and the fog lights are also new and the Alcazar also gets a new skid plate in silver finish. The bonnet ridgelines, shoulder lines, wheel arches and roof rails are all similar to the 5-seater model, but the leaked pictures show a side step instead of a rock guard and new design dual-tone alloy wheels.
Hyundai revealed official design renderings of the Alcazar SUV which show a completely new haunch that features a new tailgate, new taillamps with a C-shaped light signature, a prominent skid plate effect similar to the Creta but a new C-pillar design with a large window opening and an extended rear overhang to accommodate the third-row of seats. The leaked images reverberate with the official designs and also reveal that the taillamps will come with a 3D insert as well as a large chrome applique on the tailgate. The leaked images also show twin-tipped exhaust pipes on the rear bumper leading us to believe that the Alcazar will be offered in the turbo-petrol engine variant.
On the inside, the Alcazar appears similar to the Creta apart from the obvious 7-seat arrangement. The dashboard design is similar to the 5-seater car and official renderings suggest that it will come in a dual-tone finish of wooden brown and black. The theme also continues on the seat upholstery. The second row, however, features captain seats with a large centre armrest that features storage and cupholders. Speculations are that the centre armrest will also come with wireless smartphone charging.
The Alcazar will share powertrains with the Creta and come with the 1.5-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine, a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine options along with a range of transmission options as well.
