Hyundai Alcazar gets a new mid-spec variant making the seven-seater SUV more accessible to its buyers. For now, the new variant will be offered with a diesel automatic drivetrain only.
The Hyundai Alczar sees an addition of a variant. The Korean carmaker has now introduced the Platinum (O) variant with a seven-seat layout. This now seven-seat configuration is priced Rs 15,000 lower than the outgoing Alcazar’s Platinum (O)’s six-seat variant. The price for the new Platinum (O) seven-seater is set at Rs 19.63 lakh (ex-showroom).
This new variant retains all the features from its six-seater counterpart despite being priced lower. The feature list includes ambient lighting, a powered driver seat, and a wireless charger. The infotainment system is a 10.25-inch unit and Hyundai will offer it with a Bose surround sound system. Other features include a powered tailgate, 360-degree camera and 18-inch diamond-cut alloys.
For now, Hyundai India has limited the new Platinum (O) seven-seater variant to a diesel-automatic drivetrain. The carmaker is likely to introduce this variant with a petrol mill at a later stage in its life cycle.
This variant gets the 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine clubbed to a six-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The power figures are marked at 113bhp and 250Nm, just as other diesel models of the Alcazar.
The other variants of the Hyundai Alcazar range between Rs 16.30 lakh and Rs 20.14 lakh (ex-showroom). At this price point, the segment positioning, the Hyundai Alcazar rivals the MG Hector Plus, Tata Safari and the Mahindra XUV700.
