Firstly, Hyundai Alcazar looks very similar to the Creta in terms of design. But, it is a revised SUV with a longer wheelbase that stands at 2760mm. This way, the wheelbase of Alcazar is around 150mm longer when compared to Hyundai Creta. Well, this does not end here. The wheelbase is also longer than any of its competitors.

Mostly, it looks similar to the Creta. However, there are several differences including redesigned – grille and bumper along with the skid plate. Further, the quarter glass is also an addition when compared to its younger sibling. Take a look at the side profile and immediately one will observe a newly designed set of 18-inch alloy wheels. To be precise, they are larger than what the brand offers on the Creta (17-inches).

But, according to the sources, it will come with a large 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, wireless charging pad, 360-degree camera, automatic climate control, etc. just to name a few.

Further, there will be a 1.5-litre four-cylinder diesel motor as well. In terms of numbers, this engine produces 115HP and 250Nm of torque.
