Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

Folks, any of you using Carlinkit or any other similar wireless adapter for CarPlay with your Alcazar?

I don’t think Hyundai is ever going to update the entertainment system to make CarPlay work wirelessly and thus wanted to explore the throes party route. Any comments or suggestions are welcomed!

Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

Any solution to the centre console squeaking noise?

My tolerance has eventually depleted to a point where it's utterly embarrassing now. Especially when I commute with my cousins and friends.

I got this issue resolved (almost completely) in my car during first free service. Same old treatment that has been documented on this forum elsewhere as well. Foaming and double taping seem to have done it for me (at least for now).

Have you tried it yet?

I havenít tried any solutions yet. But I want to now.

Was the double taping and Foaming done by the service centre? How much did it cost, If I may know.

Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

Yes, it was done by the service centre and it was completely free of cost. It was done during the first service of the car (free service).

It will be great if along with the fuel efficiency someone can also update on headlights performance in this facelift variant?
With turbo engine, Alcazar performs better in both ride quality and mileage figures. The initial lag that NA engine had is gone and acceleration has improved. Few contacts who own Petrol variants have suggested 9-10 kmpl for urban areas and 15-16 kmpl for highways. We are yet to drive it at night hence won't comment on that.
(performance suggested is for 4 passenger drives with negligible weight of luggage)

Thank you

Congratulations! Check for VIN and Engine numbers, either the person in charge or online guides will assist with decoding. During PDI perform thorough checks from under the bonnet to tailgate opening. Ask the person in charge to bring the car off the yard if it is cramped between other cars. Check for tags everywhere and enquire about each one of them. Do press and check the center console for squeaking noise. If you're getting accessories then it is suggested to have fender fins, edge guards and door side moulding installed and avoid seat covers while steering cover is upto your liking. Their perfumes are good too.

Collect all documents and if they insist on postponing on any document then get the details in written and signed letter, verify for received documents if necessary details have been filled in appropriate spaces and that the details match the requirements. Document collection and car walkthrough takes time to process, it's highly recommended to arrive an hour (or two) early and engage immediately in paperwork. During walkthrough ask the salesperson as many questions as you can and try to perform the functions yourself to get acquainted with any feature you may not be familiar with. Their docket provides list of hardwares and softwares that must be installed in your car, do carry it and verify each part personally.

Any one tried this or a similar device for wireless CarPlay/Android Auto, pls update with your feedback.

Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

Test drove the new Alcazar with the 1.5T with DCT and the car/engine really surprised me.
The SA initially let me drive the Verna to get a feel of the engine since they did not have the Alcazar for test drive. I was impressed by the Verna but was apprehensive of the same engine in the Alcazar given that its heavier by 300-400kgs.

But the performance was good for a heavy car with a 1.5L engine. The pickup was good ( not as good as in Verna ) and it was able to pull cleanly. Even at 80 kmph, there was no noise in the cabin. Did not try at higher speeds.

The other good thing was the AC. I started the car at 1:30 and the car was in the sun. It made the cabin comfortable in a couple of minutes and really cooled it down in 5-6 minutes.

Only factor holding me back is that this car is too flashy for me - both interior and exteriors. The exterior grill looks looks like some aftermarket add ( to me ) and the interiors seem very crowded - with black, brown, chrome and brushed aluminum.

Can you tell me which showroom is offering test drive for the 1.5 turbo on Alcazar? Being hearing good reviews about the engine and the Alcazar itself. I tried with a few Hyundai dealers in Kerala and Karnataka but none had the 1.5T for test drive.

I took the test drive at Trident Hosur road. The SA mentioned that they share the vehicle across Trident branches.

Re: Hyundai Alcazar Review

Got some great mileage figures on my Alcazar on the highway last week.
Quick summary: My car is 13 months old now, done 25000+kms. This is Alcazar Signature 6 seater Diesel AT.

Hyundai Alcazar Review-pxl_20230604_145308904.jpg

I was on the BLR-Salem highway and got mileage of close to 30kmpl. This is with maintaining around 100kmph in normal drive mode. I was not doing anything specific to get more mileage.

Again, I think it is possible to get more than 30kmpl with the Alcazar if driven within 80kmph. But it is tough to maintain that speed on the highways.

On my regular office commute from Bannerghatta road to Whitefield, I get anywhere between 11kmpl to 17kmpl based on the traffic conditions.

The lowest I have got on a tankful-tankful method is 9.9kmpl.

The Hyundai-Kia 1.5 Diesel is quite a frugal engine mated to a good 6 speed Torque Converter AT, be it on the Seltos, Creta, Alcazar or Sonet, the 1.5L Diesel 6-speed AT is a gem and returns good fuel economy, without sacrificing on performance (especially in smaller cars like Venue and Sonet).

However, the new 1.5 L Turbo Petrol DCT is a different breed and performs wonderfully.

Bit strange that so far the reviews havent come out as quick as other facelifts or launches even though deliveries had already started. Not sure whether Hyundai havent reached out or its the other way around. For one I know that TD cars are still not widely available at dealerships.
Baiju N Nair, popular Kerala based Car enthusiast has also uploaded review of this model a day back.

Hosur-Krishnagiri is downhill and would be light on juice. On a relaxed return drive in April, I saw numbers go as fancy as 34.2 at one point and eventually settled down at 26.6 for the 280 km drive from Hosur to my home, largely due to the initial spike on that downhill section.

The engine is only efficient in mid-range suburban speeds of 60-70s. Its not efficient at highway or city crawl speeds
