Maybe they are afraid about the 7 seater Alcazar cannibalizing upper Creta variants? If there is a lot of price overlap between Alcazar and Creta variants, most people could pay the smaller increment and get the 7 seater car. Cant see any other logic to this.

Typical of Hyundai, the base variant might lose alloy wheels, touchscreen HU (or provide smaller screen without Android Auto/Carplay), Auto AC, Rear Wash/wiper, fog lamps, Projector headlamps (Halogen reflector instead). leather seats (can be remedied with seat covers).

Hope they give rear disc brakes on all variants considering added gross weight compared to Creta. Also no mention of 6+ airbags option on the official site.

Tried booking Starry Night Diesel AT (7 Seater) but unable to get OTP. Is someone tried booking and able to get through the OTP?

I had not really been paying a lot of attention to the Alcazar so far, but it does seem like an interesting proposition. The 20-25 lac OTR price range is heating up now.

A few things that appeal to me in the Alcazar -
  • Not as bulky as Harrier/Hector - fits my use case of a city crossover
  • I feel that it looks much better than the Creta. The dark brown interiors look great
  • Naturally Aspirated Petrol Engine with a torque convertor gearbox - most reliable combination IMO. DCTs are prone to issues and turbos are pretty complex - may cost a lot in maintenance repairs.
  • Typically Hyundai - loaded with features. I like the Blind spot integration in the digital display cluster

The 6 seater version would be a great family car for the city and occasional highway runs.

Of course being a Hyundai, it will have typically high waiting periods, high-handedness by dealers (no outside insurance for example) and the evergreen question of safety ratings (not that any other car in this segment has a GNCAP rating)

So no 7 seater in the Signature (O) AT variant! I'd give a pass for the XUV700.

This car is sure gonna be a hit right from the word go.

Wondering why didn't they mention about the 360 degree camera or the Front Parking sensors in the “Key Features” list of the brochure or on their website?

I see they have “Blind View Monitor” in the key features but what about the 360 camera and Front Parking sensors?

I wonder how people book a car without actually seeing and feeling it. Without even a proper media drive, how can anyone put his/ her hard earned cash? I can never imagine doing it.

It's 100% refundable in case of any cancellations. If you don't like the car in person, just cancel it afterwards. It's good to book before launch if you are okay to even get the first lot. Otherwise the waiting period of these cars soars very high post launch (take Creta for example).

Well, I have been looking through the Alcazar brochure and website. Must say it is growing on me. The interiors look chic. My main concern was around the engine options - I'd prefer a diesel but at least on paper the 1.5 L looks underpowered especially if I am looking to haul a family of 5/6 with luggage.

The other concern was around niggles in a new Hyundai. If it were a Tata or Mahindra we have the unwritten 18 month rule. Not sure if Hyundai should be subject to the same criteria. I understand it's based on the Creta but I still expect that there will be new components and parts. Any thoughts on niggles in a new Hyundai?

This is what Creta should have looked like in the first place!

Can't still get my head over why Hyundai wouldn't want me to buy a Petrol 7 seater top model? A family car will have preference for a 7 seater over a 6 seater on most occasions. If they got their variants right, this could be a real big threat to Hector as Hyundai as a brand is definitely more comforting for buyers in our market

Quoting from what I wished for in XUV700 thread. There is no guaranty that Mahindra offers 7 seat layout in the top of the line variant.

That is the trend we have seen and I think it is not logical. Person who is spending the highest amount will get all the features but one seat less! Agree that the captain seats are more comfortable but still there would be people who want to trade 'comfort' for 'added practicality' of having an additional seat or being able to collapse both the 2nd and 3rd rows to create a large cargo area.

The first impression from side profile is that itís a MPV .
With loads of features and wide service network, it will be a direct competition to the current market leader of the segment i. e. Innova. The customer has a choice now between The durability of Innova Vs freshness of Alcazar.

The seven seater segment is surely heating up with upcoming Jeep Commander ( which will be good ten big ones above these two , I guess)

I needed 7 seater automatic SUV and hence I booked safari immediately after the launch in Feb. By the time I was required to make final payment, Alcazar teasers started arriving and I found the proposition quite interesting. I was ready to evaluate Alcazar and defer my safari booking, however my family strongly opposed this thought as our upgrade was already delayed by an year. So went ahead with my booking and got delivery in April.

Looking at the variant break-up I am glad that I didn't wait for Alcazar as there is no top end automatic with 7 seat option in either petrol or diesel. Now I won't be feeling too bad for not waiting!
