Default Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

I was eagerly waiting to join the EV band wagon with the MG ZS EV but happened to see the Alcazar and loved the gizmos.
My lease of my Creta 1.6 CRDI AT got over and I went for a new lease and picked the Alcazar instead of the EV. I will pen a separate discussion on this.
Will stick to the Alcazar in this thread.

Picked up the Signature 1.5 AT, Starry Night from Blue Hyundai on the 7th Oct.

Blue Hyundai Bel Road, Basement Delivery Bay

The Alcazar at the Sahakar nagar Temple for pooja.

On the 8th visited CarSmith to get 3M CR70 on the Windscreen and Panoramic roof.

My quick observations.

1. The 1.5 Diesel is great for city driving.
2. Felt adequate on the highways when overtaking
3. The tray table at the back, is great when parked. When closed while driving, it closes with a big thud. I thought i hit a rock or something.
4. Bose speakers sound ok when listening to Radio.
5. Love the Digital Instrument Cluster and navigation option.
6. Inbuilt Navigation was used to locate CarSmith and did so perfectly.
7. BlueLink app does not seem to work most of the time I tried it.

Will write a more detailed review after the 1st Free service.

Could you please upload some pictures after CR70 film installtion. Any specific reason why you chose to get Panaromic Sunroof filmed as well? I am just wondering if you faced any issues with heating of the cabin due to sun?

Thank you Shalom, i was using 3M CR70 on my previous ride for 4 years.
I had the installed on the front windscreen and on the front driver and passenger window.
I can honestly say there is big difference in the amount of heat which hits you from the windscreen. It is drastically reduced.

I did not have experience to drive around with the Alcazar's panoramic roof open to feel the heat before I got the CR70 done. As had picked the car on 7th evening and by 4pm on the 8th had the CR70 installed.

Going by my past experience how well the CR70 reduces the heat on the windscreen I went with the logic it would also reduce the heat from the panoramic roof. The panoramic roof's glass is different and already has some insulating properties.

On the 10th Oct did a drive to Gubbi (approx 90KM one way) with the panoramic roof open. The weather was a mixed bag with clouds and sunshine, luckily no rains.
It was a very pleasant drive, when sunny I could feel the light enter the cabin but did not feel the heat.

Here are a few pics.

Windscreen from the inside.

For reference here is a pic of my previous car , the Creta.
It had CR70 on the front windows and you can see the difference from the rear ones.
