The 2023 Hyundai Alcazar's new 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine will be both RDE- and E20-compliant. It is good enough to generate 158bhp of maximum power at 5,500rpm and 253Nm of peak torque at 1,500-3,500rpm. The same engine will expectedly replace the 1.4-litre turbo petrol unit offered by the Kia Carens. It comes mated to two gearbox choices that include a new 7-speed DCT transmission and a 6-speed manual transmission. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Alcazar is claimed to go up to 18km/l with DCT and 17.5km/l with the manual variant.
Design-wise, the new SUV, according to the company, will come with a new front grille along with puddle lamp logo carrying the Alcazar Emblem. Its design is said to have a refined appeal as well as new technologies to amp up 'Grand Experiences with this new-age mobility solution'.
The updated Hyundai Alcazar comes with integrated start/stop technology, amongst other safety features that include 6 airbags (as standard), ESC, Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill-Start Assist Control, and disc brakes.
