Hyundai Alcazar vs Hyundai Creta - Key differences

By Aditya Jadhav | on April 11, 2021

The Hyundai Alcazar will make its debut in the coming weeks. We compare it to the Hyundai Creta, on which the Alcazar is largely based. 

Hyundai India has allowed us to experience its upcoming Alcazar seven-seater SUV. Although the SUV was completely camouflaged, we did experience its drivetrain, and you can read all about it by clicking here. While we can’t disclose much, owing to an embargo on revealing information about the Alcazar’s interior, we can use the information provided by Hyundai itself regarding some of its features to compare it with its sibling – Hyundai Creta.

Following are the key differences between the Hyundai Creta and the Alcazar

Drivetrain

The Creta gets three engine options to chose from. Hyundai offers the option to choose between two petrol and one diesel engines along with optional automatic transmission. Alcazar, on the other hand, gets only two engines to choose from – one petrol and one diesel. Both engines come with a choice of an optional six-speed automatic transmission.

In-Cabin

While the Alcazar is Hyundai’s comeback into the seven-seater SUV segment, it can be had with a six-seat configuration as well. In the latter configuration, there will be no bench in the second row, and the Alcazar will have two captain seats. The captain seats are split by a centre console, which doubles up as an arm-rest and houses cup holders. The Creta, on the other hand, is a five-seater SUV and offers only a bench for the second row of seats.

The third row can accommodate two passengers and gets a 50:50 split function. The third row of seats can be split for better cargo space management or can be folded flush into the boot floor if need be.

Exterior

The Alcazar gets a healthy dose of chrome at the front. The grille sports different design elements than the Creta. The alloy-wheel design is different. The Alcazar will have larger 18-inch wheels than the 17-inch wheels of the Creta. The Alcazar even gets a stepping-board on either side for easy ingress and digress of passengers.

The Alcazar is expected to be launched in the coming weeks. The prices are expected to be around Rs 80,000 – 120,000 higher than that of the Hyundai Creta. Its pricing could be between Rs 12 and 19 lakh (ex-showroom).
